In an attempt to make something worthy of the newest release from Emma's stamps, I thought I would make an 8 1/2 X 11 layout to showcase her newest release. If you want to see them in their entirety, check out her shop at My Creative Time
I stamped the small backgrounds before I stamped the cups. That way, I could make sure that I had enough of the background to cover the cups. Then I used craft paper for the lids after I stamped the cups again and cut out only the lids. This is called "piecing". I used the die to cut out the cup and label in turquoise then pieced the other parts on top of it. The turquoise background was inked with CTMH chocolate ink and I stamped the size (from the new release) on top of the label.
I took a scrap (again) for the dark brown background and randomly stamped the coffee cup, the coffee beans, and one of the phrases all over it and inked the edges in the same chocolate brown ink. I cut one inch off the width and length of the red gingham paper and sewed it to the white cardstock. I then inked the white cardstock and lightly stamped the coffee beans in each corner.
I cut a piece of craft cardstock (4 1/4 X 6 1/4) and adhered it to white cardstock for the mat. I took that mat and used a piece of the same turquoise cardstock to make a third mat. Before adhering the mat to the base, I took a piece of $1 ribbon from Michaels and ran it the length of the base and adhered it.
I used another stamp from Emma's former release (Cherish This Moment) to stamp a journaling box on white cardstock and matted it on the same turquoise cardstock. I stamped title (from Emma's new release) and matted it on turquoise cardstock.
After everything was assembled, I put the page together. The recipe is as follows:
*Stamps - "You Are Perk-fect", "Coffee Break", and "Cherish This Moment"
*Ink - CTMH chocolate
*Paper - craft, turquoise, white, and red gingham from Hobby Lobby
*Ribbon - $1 from Michaels
Hope you like it. All comments are deeply appreciated. Thanks for looking. :)))
