Coffee Café – cards

By: Bussakorn Mpelasoka

I have two cards to share today, both using new Stampin’ Up! stamp set called Coffee Café and the matching Coffee Cups framelits dies.

The first card is a 4 1/8” x 4 1/8”. I used Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz and Whisper White cardstock and Naturally Eclectic DSP. I also stamped coffee beans repeatedly on the envelope flap.

Jar of Love – card & gift

By: Bussakorn Mpelasoka

Among the stamp sets and dies I have, the Stampin’ Up! Jar of Love stamp set and Everyday Jars framelits dies seem to be the ones I have used the most. I shared how I used this bundle to decorate the post-it note set a few weeks ago. Today is a card that I made to match.

I stamped the Little Lime Twist cardstock using Marbled background stamp and using the negative of the scalloped square die cut as a mask to sponge the envelope. I placed the post-it note set in the black wooden crate and then in a cellophane bag.

Oh So Eclectic card

By: Bussakorn Mpelasoka

This card was made using one of my most favourite suites in the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue, the Naturally Eclectic Suite. I chose very rich colours for this card – Peekaboo Peach, Emerald Envy and Night of Navy, but also used Soft Sky for the smaller flower to tone it down a little.

I kept the inside of the card simple and used the same DSP to decorate the envelope’s flap.

There are yet so many interesting elements in the suite that I can see myself enjoy exploring and I will definitely make many more projects with this suite.

A Little Wild card & gift

by: Bussakorn Mpelasoka

I will have two friends coming this afternoon. We will do some cooking and crafting together. Tanja will show us how to make ‘date pecan slide’. I’ve prepared this card & gift set project using the new ‘A Little wild’ stamp set and ‘Little Love’ framelits dies for them to make.

For the card, I thought it would be fun to see the teddy bear face poking out at the front and his back inside of the card.

I used Lemon Lime Twist for the card base and Crumb Cake for the teddies. The DSP is from ‘Halloween Night’, which I got from Clearance Rack.

2017-2019 in-colours notecards

Bussakorn Mpelasoka: Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in Canberra

I made these five little notecards (2” x 3 ½”) from the 2017-2019 in-colours, ‘Lift Me Up’ stamp set and the matching ‘Up & Away’ thinlits dies. All the five notecards have pretty much the same design, just in different colours and sentiments.

I played around with both the new coloured cardstocks and ink pads. On the notecards, I used water colouring and stamping using the ink pads and on the envelopes I used white embossing on the coloured cardstock.

I managed to glue the hot-air balloons upside down on the rest of the envelopes. While removing them I ripped a bit of the envelope paper so I had to add a piece of white paper to hide the mess L.
