Create a Chic Checkerboard Pattern with Perennial Postage Dies and A Little Latte Suite from Stampin' Up! Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty

MY FAVORITE THINGS! The “just released” A Little Latte suite of coordinating products may be the “darling” of the latest Stampin’ Up! on-line exclusives product drop.  It’s on the list of My Favorite Things from the on-line exclusive products and includes the following coffee inspired products.

TECHNIQUE TIP AND WOW VIDEO!  I adore this quick and easy checkerboard background.  Simply assemble six (three Early Espresso and three Very Vanilla) 1 3/8” squares (Perennial Postage Dies, one of My Favorite Things) and adhere to a 4 1/4 x 2 7/8 piece of Petal Pink card stock.  Use the notches to line the squares up.  I love that when the squares are touching, they create tiny circles of Petal Pink peeking through.

PROJECT TUTORIAL:

Begin by burnishing the fold of the Very Vanilla Thick card base with a Bone Folder.

Use a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (Standard or Mini) to crop three squares from the 2 x 6 Early Espresso and Very Vanilla layers with the 1 3/8 Perennial Postage square die.

Use the notches of the squares to line them up and adhere them to the Petal Pink layer with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. TIP: Watch my Stampin’ Pretty 1 Minute to WOW! video here.

Adhere the three layers (Early Espresso, Crumb Cake and checkered/Petal Pink) together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Double wrap the layers with Linen Thread, securing on the left with a bow.

Use a Clear Block C to stamp the sentiment (Latte Love Stamp Set) onto the Petal Pink layer.

Use a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (Standard or Mini) to crop the stamped sentiment and the “coffee” with the coordinating Latte Love dies.

Adhere the elliptical “coffee” to the coffee cup as shown with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the coffee cup to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

POP OF PERSONALITY! Embellish with three Adhesive-Backed Swirl Dots, one each of Pecan Pie, Petal Pink and white.

PERFECT POLISH! Adhere the 5 3/4 x 2 1/4 Designer Series Paper (DSP) to the Very Vanilla Medium envelope flap with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. IMPORTANT: Add glue to the flap first, not the DSP. Center, line up, tape to secure (Post-It Tape) and crop with a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (Standard) and the Basic Borders scalloped edge die. Watch my Pretty Envelope Flap WOW! video for a quick demonstration here.
