I used the Cup of Joy stamp set to stamp my to go cup and used the coordinating Cup of Joy Die Set to cut out my own cozy from kraft cardstock.  I wrapped my coffee cup with some black burlap twine and added a cardstock heart die cut from the Cup of Joy dies.

For my background, I've used the very popular Watercolor Background Stamp.  Using my MISTI, I inked up the stamp one time.  That's right, one time.  I love the somewhat faded non perfect look!  I then layered a panel of impressed dots cardstock (a scrap from a previous project) at an angle.  My sentiment panel was stamped with "Caffeine AND Kindness" (from How Have You Bean?) several times and trimmed down.  This panel was flanked with a strip of black and kraft cardstock.  I added my to go coffee cup with foam adhesive added a few enamel dots.

We hope you have enjoyed the Gilmore Girls Inspired Post Week! Make sure to go back through all the posts from this week and leave a comment to be entered to win the special giveaway! Winner will be chosen on Saturday, February 25th.

Paper Pieced Coffee Cup Cards by Laurie S. // Gilmore Girls Inspired Post Week

Do you like coffee?  Only with my oxygen.

Hey there friends! Laurie here today, sharing a couple of Gilmore Girls and coffee (of course!) inspired cards!  I'm so thrilled to be a part of this special feature, because I love Gilmore Girls, coffee, and Right at Home stamps!

This first card was inspired by Lorelai's kitchen!  I have always loved the retro and slightly funky look of it!  :-)  Even though there wasn't a lot of cooking done in there, there was always coffee!

I stamped and paper pieced the cute coffee cup from the Cup of Joy stamp set and then die cut it out using the coordinating Cup of Joy Die Set.   I stamped the sentiment (from the How Have You Bean? stamp set) in black ink on the bottom.

My next card features more of the coffee cups from the Cup of Joy stamp set (and coordinating Cup of Joy die set).  Again, I did some paper piecing on my cups.

The stamped sentiment is from the How Have You Bean? stamp set, and the hello die cutis from the Find the Beauty Die Set.

Life Happens Coffee Helps Card by Melissa // Gilmore Girls Inspired Post Week

Happy Wednesday to you! It’s Melissa here with you today to share a love & friendship inspired card for the Gilmore Girls Inspired Post Week. You’ve already seen two beautiful cards from Nicole and Holly, using the Cup of Joy stamp set, and I’ll be sharing another with you.

I chose to create a one layer card with lots of bright colors and a sentiment that will help a friend during a difficult time. First, I started by stamping my sentiment onto my card front and then stamped all of my coffee cups randomly around that. I stamped hearts inside a few of the mugs, and also filled in some of the empty white space around them with one of the outlined polka dots in the Cup of Joy set. Next, came all of the coloring. I used Copic marker colors … R11, R22, BG11 and YG06.

To dress my card up just a little, I added a few pink Nuvo Crystal Drops to the centers of the flowers and a few sequins around my sentiment. I also used my white gel pen to create stripes on the sleeves of the travel mugs and the hearts of the coffee cups.

Nicole has put together a special Gilmore Girls themed giveaway that one lucky reader will win at the end of the week. Be sure to follow along each day and leave a comment for your chance to win. She will pick a winner on Saturday, February 25th!

Have a wonderful day!
