Autumn Coffee


It's time for our Wednesday challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. This week we have an inspiration board for you. This challenge is a fun cross between a photo challenge and a color challenge. You can choose to be inspired by the colors, the photograph, or both! I love this week's selection -- and chose to be inspired by the photo of coffee and sunflowers!



To create my happy little coffee shaped card I:
  • cut a coffee cup shaped card (using the free template below) out of white card stock and inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink (Ranger)
    • cut the lid and wrapper from kraft card stock
    • inked the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink (Ranger)
    • ran the wrapper through my Fiskars paper crimper
  • stamped 2826-H, Let Us... on the lid in Ground Espresso Distress Ink (Ranger) and glued it to the top flap of my card
  • created an autumn collage on my wrapper using the following Repeat Impressions Stamps:
  • All the stamped pieces where inked with Fossilized Amber/Spiced Marmalade/Walnut Stain Distress Ink (Ranger)
  • I added some brown (Studio G) glitter to the center of my layered sunflower 
  • The extra vines are die cut from the Funky Flowers #1 thinlits (Sizzix - Tim Holtz) and Meadowbird Branch dies (Memory Box)

Thank you for the free template - what a beautiful fall cup - makes me want to head out and get a pumpkin spice latte this a.m. I have a paper crimper "somewhere" - going to have to look for it as this really adds the punch to this cup.

I love how you put the corrugated piece in the middle and I love the pretty flower and leaves there, love the sentiment on the top, didn't know a cup could be so gorgeous!

This is stunning, like how you did the sunflower and incorporated so many RI stamps with it to highlight your coffee cup. Thanks for the template!

This is such a brilliant way to interpret this inspiration, Esther. I love it! Dressing up the coffee cup with the sunflower and foral arrangement is so clever. Thank you for sharing the template, I'll be using it in my own creations.
