Coffee Loving Cardmakers: January Guest Designer – January 20, 2017! I’m very happy to be with you today with a third post as the January Guest Designer for Coffee Loving Cardmakers! I have an unusual sort of card to share with you today.

I combined 4 of my favorite products, from different companies, and also altered the stamped image of one of my favorite stamps. Isle Borders Stamp Sethugs-worddie

Here’s my card, using, at least in part, one of my favorite rubber stamps.



This stamp set is one of my first, and favorite, rubber stamp sets. It is Stampin’ Up’s (discontinued) Tea Shoppe.

You can see that I used only the outline of the large cup.

slide009I stamped the design on the cup with this stamp set from Papertrey Ink.

Fair Isle Borders Stamp Set

I also used these lovely snowflake dies.

I used the CUTplorations “hugs” word die for the sentiment.


I have a discount code for you! Shery, of STAMPlorations, has generously given me a code to share with you.

Here’s a quick slideshow of how I altered and stamped the tea cup.

I really enjoyed making this card and I hope that you’ve been inspired to try combining some of your favorite products from different companies. I loved how the teacup turned out. Please come back next week to see my last 2 cards that I have to share with you this month.

Thanks for stopping by!

Grace & Peace,

  1. This is very nice…Love the die-cut snowflakes background. We are so blessed for your participation in our last Challenge and would love for you to join us again in our current Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you with this Scripture inspiration from Colossians 2:6-7 which tells us, “So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.” Have a blessed week.
