Stampin’ Up! Nothing’s Better Than for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend. I hope you are starting to make some plans.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is Cuppa Cocoa or Coffee.  Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Nothing’s Better Than Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Tidings of Christmas 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my Clean and Layered card. I was inspired by the colors and the theme.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #167.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by adhering a panel of Tidings of Christmas DSP to an Evening Evergreen card base. The card stock is Evening Evergreen not black like it looks in the photos.

I adhered a smaller panel of Tidings of Christmas DSP to an Evening Evergreen mat and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the chocolate chip cookie outline/chips image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Early Espresso Ink. I stamped the cookie fill image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Early Espresso Ink, stamping off twice on scrap paper. I cut the images out using my Love You More Than Dies. I adhered one using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the other using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiments from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the top of the panel. I stamped the coffee cup images from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel and one on a small panel of Basic White cardstock. I colored the images in using my Bronze and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the cup on the small panel out using my Love You More Than Dies and adhered it next to the stamped image using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the steam image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Early Espresso Ink above the cups. I adhered the Basic Whtie panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few 2021-2023 In- Color Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Tidings of Christmas DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and then to the inside of the Evening Evergreen card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic Whtie Medium Envelope. I stamped the coffee cut images from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front and colored them using my Bronze and Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the cookie outline image from the Nothing’s Better Than stamp set in Early Espresso Ink and the fill image, stamping off twice, on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Tidings of Christmas DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
