Don’t Worry – Be Frappy! Upcycled Starbucks Post-It Pen Holder

Good afternoon! I’m glad you could stop by for my next project for the Summer 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

   

For this project, I upcycled the box from the recent Starbuck promo (the one that had the stickers in it), and turned it into a fun Post-It and pen holder, printing up my own sentiment:

Ahhh, fraps… the refreshing drink of summer!

  • Core’dinations aqua and white cardstock
  • Pebbles, Inc. Chalks

Upcycled Starbucks MFT Walking on Sunshine Friendship Card

Hello again! I just couldn’t wait until tomorrow to post this card, so I’m back already. ; ) The Summer 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is in full swing.

During the spring hop, I saw some cute cards done using the spring coffee cups from Starbucks, but my stores didn’t have them yet. When they finally came in, I snagged a yellow one which I thought was bright and sunny for summer. And when the recent sticker collecting promotion ended, I asked my local manager for some of those fab watercolor-look leftover frap stickers and he kindly obliged.

 

I took some inspiration from MFT’s Sketch Challenge, added a couple of travelling birds from South America (SSS Monday Challenge) and out comes a fun up-cycled summer card. Another serendipitous moment came when I was looking through my stash for some red embossing powder to match the card and came up empty. Brain fog kept me from remembering to just stamp in red and use clear embossing powder. I tried  a neon pink, but it didn’t look right. Then I went over it with a Copic marker… I love the burning after glow the neon left. Unfortunately the camera just doesn’t catch it as well as the eye does in real life. You’ll just have to come over to see it!

 

Materials used:

  • My Favorite Things BB Polynesian Paradise stamp set
  • Core’dinations Parisian Nights A2 card & white cardstock
  • Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink
  • Copic Markers: B24,29; BV02; C3,5,7;R29,35; Y13,15,17,35; YR04
  • Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Drops Navy Blue
  • Pigma Micron 005 green archival ink pen
  • Tsukineko Versamark ink
  • Recollections Opaque Neon embossing powder: Neon Pink
  • Tombow Xtreme permanent Adhesive
  • Starbucks cup and stickers
  • Laura’s Loft glitter pearl stickers

‘You’ve Got this in the Bag’ Spellbinders Gift Purse and Verve Card

Surprise! Betcha thought I wouldn’t be back today. Me neither, but my morning plans fell through and, after so much caffeine from the green tea yesterday I was up late last night fiddling around with another project, so here I am posting it.

Let’s talk about that cute Spellbinders purse first. That little purse, like any truly good women’s purse, holds a lot more than you’d think! Yes, the three Starbucks Via and two Ghirardelli chocolates all fit inside and let it latch closed just fine!

Speaking of the latch, I thought I’d gussy mine up and put a mini teacup charm on top of it. Fortunately, I just happened to have put it high enough for the latch to still work. (Note to self: remember to leave room for the latch to bend and fit in place if putting a decorative piece on top next time!)

I just love these beautiful papers from K & Company! I cut out some of the butterflies, wrapped their wings around a small paint brush handle for dimension and added some shimmer to them.

For the card, I used the sweet free digis from Verve Stamps – Thank you, Julee! (Click the pic or HERE to get them.) For those of you dinosaurs like me, digis are digital images you can print from your computer – like what we used to call ‘clip-art’ in the previous century!

  

I followed Verve’s Mojo Monday challenge sketch, too.

The double meaning of the sentiment with this gift set makes me giggle! I love how the shimmer on the blue butterfly makes it look like the real life Morpho Adonis butterfly.

The inside says: ‘May your burdens be light and your coffee strong.’ Hmmm… from this angle, that coffee with the lines reminds me of a kitty… maybe next time Julee will do up a coffee kitty digi for us… (hint-hint, Julee!!)

I used some vellum leaves for the ‘steam’ and added some shimmering bling to the sun.

  • Verve Rise & Shine digi set
  • Verve Love Everlasting stamp set
  • Verve Beautiful Flowers die set
