With all those prizes and the fact that I love coffee, I was up for this hop as soon as I heard about it!
I made three projects for today.  I can’t seem to just stop at one…  🙂



I am totally in love with these little coffee cups!  They are so cute and you can really dress them up if you want to.  I’m keeping it low-key though.  I die cut the SU joy out of foil cardstock which I think gives it a little pop with that retro feeling cardstock.


So Amy pinned a card a few weeks ago that used the Stampin Up Curvey Keepsakes Die and challenged me to make something similar and this is what I came up with!  With just a few snips you totally have a coffee cup!  It doesn’t show but the snowflake is cut from super sparkly paper and I stamped the steam and embossed it with Stampin Up Iridescent Ice and it is really pretty.  The sentiment is a PTI stamp and stamped with PTI Fresh Snow.


And lastly is my favorite of the day!



Can you tell how much I love these little cups!  I used DP from the SU Winter Frost paper stack and the snowflake is a gift from the wonderful Jen Shears!  Just to give you some perspective on the size of these little guys I took a picture of all them together.  The card is a regular A2 size.  These cups are small!



Now on to the good stuff!  Blog Candy!

All Stampin Up Supplies


Fall is my favorite time of year!  I love the beautiful color of the leaves and the cooler days and of course football!  This embossing folder is quickly becoming one of my favorites as is this stamp set it is so versatile.  I dyed the white twine using my blackberry bliss ink pad stamped on a piece of plastic, adding water and soaking the piece of twine.  It would have been a lot easier to use a reinker but wouldn’t you know that is one reinker I don’t have…

Fall is also the perfect time for a warm cup of coffee and these little cups, they are only four ounces, are so cute I just had to add one in for the hop!  I used DSP from the Trim the tree set and I think it turned out great!  I will be making them for my Thanksgiving guests with candies inside to give everyone as they leave as a thank you for coming over and sharing their time with us.

Thanks for stopping by and happy hopping!

Coffee & Friends Mini Cup

Stampin’ Up: Trim the Tree DSP; Perfect Blend Stamp; Early Espresso CS & Ink


Here is my second creation with these adorable cups! There are many examples on pinterest or YouTube, if you do a search for mini coffee cups.  I posted a Christmas one on Tuesday which was the first one I made.  I am hoping to make a few to give as Halloween gifts to my co-workers.  They are the perfect size for holding candy!

For You Christmas Cup

Card Details: Teresa Collins DP; PTI Christmas DieA Jillian Vance Design Snowman Die; Diamond Dust


Stampin’ Up DP Fresh Prints;  Letterpress Winter Stamp; Scallop Punch; Real Red Ink & CS; Coastal Cabana Ink

These cups are the cutest thing ever!  I saw one while on Pinterest the other day and I had to get some immediately! This is my first one and it’s okay.  I used a template I found on pinterest and I think I need to make my own as I would like the pattern to be just a bit longer than this one and the same with the belly band..

I was hoping to put a gift card inside but these guys are way too small.  They would be great filled with small cookies or candies.  The top picture shows the cup next to an 5 1/2 inch tall card.  The cups are 2 3/8 inches tall.

Be sure you come back and visit me I will be making more of these cuties for sure!
