Greetings from Seattle! Creative Coffee Gift for the Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop

Hello Coffee (and Papercraft) Lovers!

I am excited to be participating in the Coffee Lovers Blog hop for the first time! Today I am creating a project on behalf of I was inspired by the Seattle stamp set that was designed by Kelly Purkey for Hero arts as well as a Seattle Starbucks gift card.

I have always been a coffee addict but when I moved to the Seattle area about a year and a half ago I REALLY came to love coffee any time of the day! I thought it would be fun to create a coffee gift card holder but I didn’t want to JUST give a gift card, So I created another little special gift using my Seattle stamp set.

This cute little matchbox was created using the WRMK envelope punch board. I used some Doodlebug printed papers from the Gingham collection and the cream and sugar collection.  I followed the tutorial for the matchbox HERE and then I added a card on top. Sort of an all-in-one gift!

For the inside of the card, I attached the coffee gift card using a glue dot. I cut a white panel for my message using the second smallest rectangle die in the Kat Scrappiness double stitched rectangle dies. I stamped a sentiment and coffee cup icon in a light grey (Hippo) ink from the Lawn Fawn mini ink pad set, Tropical Island. The stamp set I used here is an older set from Kelly Purkey.

I took the same size stitched rectangle die and die cut a piece of watercolor paper. I stamped a little Seattle scene using that Seattle stamp set pictured above. I then added some watercolor using my zig clean color real brush markers and a waterbrush. After it was dry I went over all of the water and space needle with a clear Spectrum Noir glitter brush marker.

For the inside of the matchbox I added some green sequins, real Starbucks coffee beans, some iridescent cellophane wrap, and a cute pair of coffee cup earrings I made using beads, stamps, and shrink plastic! I haven’t played with shrink plastic since I was a kid and I have to tell you, this was so fun and I am sure I will be making more stamped jewelry in the future!
