Happy Friday! I am spending the weekend cheering on my son Brandon at his Y Regional championship swim meet in Spartanburg, SC, starting today so this post is a little late since I was having WiFi issues at our hotel last night. This week over on the Sisters in Stamping blog, Jennifer asked us to create projects with a coffee/tea theme for our Fabulous Friday designs and I decided to make some fun altered K-Cup holders with these mini coffee cups. Aren't they cute?! These little favors were a big hit at my Christmas craft shows and I thought it would be fun to create some with a Spring theme using the Pretty Petals DSP stack. Check out the paper flowers that were made using the new Blossom Bunch punch from the Occasions catalog - so fun and easy!
I pulled my colors from the DSP - calypso coral, mint macaron, pacific point and very vanilla. Isn't it great how different these three favors turned out all using DSP from the same stack?! If you haven't purchased these 6" x 6" DSP stacks, they really are a great deal for $8.00! You get 48 sheets with 4 each of 12 different designs. You'll find 3 stacks in the Annual catalog on page 144 (Go Wild, Cherry on Top and Pretty Petals) and 3 stacks in the Occasions catalog on page 17 (Love Blossoms), page 35 (Have a Cuppa) and page 39 (Going Places). These stacks are great for card makers AND scrapbookers!!
This photo is a close-up of the paper flower - I punched two sets of the three flowers using the Blossom Bunch punch and put them together after curling the petals upward with my fingers. I do have stampin' dimensionals between the different sizes to give the flower more dimension. I added a large pearl to the center and voila... easy-peasy beautiful 3D paper flower!
Here's one more view of my project... I love these little cups! For even more coffee and tea-themed ideas and inspiration, please be sure to hop over to the Sisters in Stamping blog to check out what the other designers created.
