Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop: Merry Café

Hello and Welcome to the 2017 - Artisan Design Team's Final blog hop. I cannot believe that it has been a year already, since I started hopping with such a talented group of ladies. It has been a wonderful experience and I feel that my creativity has grown so much because of it.

For our final hop we are featuring the Merry Café stamp set. How fun is this little set!?! It's Perfect for all you Holiday treat giving and it coordinates perfectly with Coffee Cups Famelits.

Speaking of holiday treat giving,  I found these plastic, little "Mason" jars at my local dollar store and couldn't resist creating little hot chocolate treat packages with them.

My colour combo is Crumb Cake (cardstock), Early Espresso (cardstock), Real Red (cardstock, ink, and marker), Garden Green (ink and marker) and Gold (foil snowflake). I also used Basic Black ink and Whisper White cardstock.

Do you like my little coffee cup sleeve? Do you know how I did it? If you guess with the Corrugated Elements, you would be correct! I simply used the tiny coffee cup die and die cut the sleeve portion out of the embellishment. It works perfectly!

Well that's it from me, but before I pass you on to the Talented Mercedes Weber, let me introduce you to the NEW Artisan Design Team for 2018! Congratulations to all the new team members. I can't wait to see what you create!

  1. Gorgeous idea! I would like to enjoy a glass of Christmas with you! It has been a pleasure to work with you this year and get to know you!

  2. Well that little corrugated coffee sleeve is darling. I imagine I'll be seeing you soon martha. Although I know I'llbe in Toronto for the Taylor Swift concert, its likely a fly in and fly out adventure. :) Love anything that's mini!

  3. A perfect little gift at Christmas! And that mini cup - so sweet! I have had a blast working with you on this awesome Artisan team Martha. So sad our time has come to an end :-(

  4. What a cute project! Such a great idea to give as a gift :)
