Mojo Cuppa Joe

Stampin up font of you coffee mojo 79
Welcome to Mojo Monday Sketch 79.  I'm so lucky to be on the Mojo-Maker Design Team and see Julee Tilman's top notch sketches in advance.  Sharing them with you first thing on Monday morning is a delight. 

I stamped my "cuppa joe" from the "Font of You" stamp set twice, first on Very Vanilla and second on Real Red. card stock  The Real Red version was snipped out and propped up on Stampin' Dimensionals.  TIP:  I used a Hobby Blade to carve out the interior of the handle.

The corners were shaped with a Corner Rounder Punch and layered on Chocolate Chip.  I used Real Red Textured card stock for a rich look.  The Chocolate Chip layer was defined with the Scallop Edge Punch. 

Three sweet Stampin' Up! Latte Designer Buttons adorn the corner. TIP:  Mini Glue Dots work perfectly for locking the buttons into place.

The retro Baja Breeze patterned paper is from Stampin' Up!'s Hostess Level 3 Hand Drawn Bundle.  Click here for how you can earn this bundle free!  I wrapped a piece of 5/8" So Saffron Grosgrain Ribbon (an exclusive Sale-A-Bration gift) around the whole works and added it to a 4.25 x 5.5 So Saffron card base (scored on the side).

The final touch was the "latte" sentiment.  TIP:  Using Small and Large Oval Punches to crop the shapes, I offset the layers to match the retro feel of the rest of the card.

    Mary, How do you tie your bows so perfectly?

    Hi Stephanie: There used to be an excellent utube video on tying the 5/8″ grosgrain. Anyone out there know where it is? However, I can’t find it any more. The key is holding one side steady while pulling on the other. You may have to try a couple times, but I get good results this way. Hugs, Mary

  13. I was drinking my coffee when I clicked on your posting. Too funny! I love that coffee cup. Great color scheme Mary and the buttons are a nice touch. Have a wonderful day!
