Art with Heart Team Blog Hop - Favourite New Bundle June 2017


Hi everyone and welcome, today the Art with Heart Team girls are showing you their favourite Bundles from the 2017 Stampin'Up Catalogue.  Bundles make creating a breeze, because of the perfect coordination.  It's a bonus that you get 10% off by bundling the products together.  There are 24 Bundles in the new catalogue so ask us about them, or for a catalogue today!!!
You have come from the lovely Sharon Davern Blog Hops are full circles, so you can start hopping here and then at the end of each post is a link to the next one.  There is also a list of participants at the end in case of any broken lines.  Now let's get started!
The bundle I chose today is the Coffee Cafe Bundle, when I first saw it I knew it would be the first on my list to get, anyone who knows me knows I love a good coffee, so much potential with this set just love it.  I chose to make two tea bag holders in 2 different sizes, one for coffee and one for tea and a decorated coffee cup with holder, these make great gifts for market stalls or a little gift for someone just because.
I will start with my larger size coffee bag holder I used the Coffee Break DSP and cut it to 8 x 8 instead of the usual 6 x 6, these are fairly straight forward and lots of tutorials around but if you would like my instructions let me know and I will be happy to share them.  I also made a small thank you card to go with this. For the sentiments I used the 2" and 1 3/4" inch punches.  I only used 2 ink colours for all the projects Early Expresso and Old Olive.  The Ribbon colours are Crumb Cake and Whisper white and I used Linen Thread to tie at the base and made a small bow.  On the thank you card I used Early Expresso Card Stock, the Whisper White mat I ran through the big shot using the Petal Burst folder (reminded me of coffee beans) and sponged over it lightly with Old Olive, I used the Shimmer Ribbon Pear Pizzazz, again used the 2" & 1 3/4" circle punch, I attached a little set of tags on the side using the little oval thinlet, tiny tag and stamped Hi and coffee beans, the heart is from the Corrugated Elements.  On one side I put in 2 small choc chip biscuits, a small nescafe coffee sachet and a mini old gold chocolate and on the other side the thank you card which measures 3 1/2 x 3 1/2.  

For my next project it is the standard 6 x 6 tea bag holder.  Again using  a sheet of Coffee Break DSP. On each side I used the corrugated thinlet on some DSP and attached one to each side ( a bit hard to see because of the colour) then I fussy cut the cups and pot.  On the top I tied Shimmer Ribbon Pear Pizzazz too tie a bow.  With this one I put in a tea bag on each side and in the middle I put a small pkt of biscuits and a mini old gold chocolate, if you wanted to you could also make a mini thank you or for you card.

My third project is mini coffee cup and holder, I really like these and are fun to make.  Again lots of tutorials around to make the holder but I am happy to share instructions if you would like them.  I was able to purchase the 4oz coffee cups with lids from an Australian supplier I have always loved these and happy I found it, again great to make for markets or to hold a gift card just add a belly band around the back to hold it in place. Inside the cup I put some clear shredding and a mini M&M's, a bit of a novelty gift.  I found the easiest way to get a template to cover your cup is to cut a cup up, I know it may be wasteful but this way you get the perfect template. I used tombow to adhere the Coffee Break DSP gives you a bit of wriggle room.  On the lid I punched out the same paper as the cup from the 1 3/4" punch and just cut out an oval from Early Expresso just to break it up a bit, the straw is cut in half, and attached the tag with Linen Thread, I also used some of the Corrugated Elements.  On the top I tied Crumb Cake, Whisper White and Shimmer Ribbon Pear Pizzazz and again used Linen Thread to tie together.

So any questions feel free to ask.  If you would like a catalogue email me and I will send one out to you. Happy Crafting and hope you have a wonderful day.
