Creative Inking Blog Hop — Falling In Love With Fall

Hello stampers and crafty friends!  Today our amazing Creative Inking designers have created an inspiring group of projects themed as "Fall In Love With Fall".  You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the very talented Colleen Vassos' blog. Please be sure to click the 'Next' button (found below) to move along the Creative Inking blog hop to see all the beautiful projects.


Recently, I asked a question on my Stampin' Dreams with Lori customer page if there was one thing you could give up, which one would it be?  Resoundingly, the answer was COFFEE!  Yikes!  Some people had never tried it and some tried drinking coffee and didn't like it; therefore, won't be touching the 'stuff' again.  LOL!

With that being said, I decided my project covering our theme would include COFFEE!  Teehehe!  I know, I'm such a rebel. LOL!  There's a new stamp set called Press On, that is perfect for the next point I want to make.  This stamp set includes images of coffee cups and coffee beans, buuuut, you can also use the coffee cups for hot tea, too. :)  I also have been aching to use my new Rectangle Tins that will hold a variety of chocolates, note cards, small gifts of jewelry, candies, etc.
Instead of creating a belly band, I went with decorating the top of the tin.  The closure is very secure, so I was safe knowing the lid will not open on it's own without a little help.  It is Pumpkin Latte season, so I chose to use a Pumpkin Pie cardstock matte to one of the lovely patterns found in the Plaid Tidings 6" x 6" Designer Series paper pack.  The Detailed Trio punch was perfect to match with the rounded corners on the tin.

The focal arrangement uses a die from the Wreath Builder Dies set cut from Shaded Spruce cardstock.  It fits perfectly around the 2-3/8" Layering Circle die cut from Vellum.  The coffee/tea/hot chocolate cup image was inked in Soft Suede and stamped onto Very Vanilla.  I inked a second time and stamped the center 'sleeve' onto Soft Suede cardstock, but out and glued in place on the original image.  There are no dies or punches that coordinate with the Press On stamp set, so you'll have to 'fussy cut' (hand cut with Paper Snips) the cut image.



Add the cup to the center of the wreath section with Stampin' Dimensionals.  The sentiment was stamped onto a Pumpkin Pie strip using Soft Suede ink, glued to the center of the 'sleeve', and garnished with a Linen Thread bow.  Adhere the whole panel to the top of the tin using Stampin' Seal+ adhesive.  Fill the tin with your gift of choice.  I found these wonderful Krispy Kreme Cappuccino Coffee Thins — 4 of them fit beautifully inside.  YUM!
