Welcome to the Royal Blog Tour on MeGa Stampin' Studio. We are featuring the Stampin' Up! stamp set, Morning Cup. We have also incorporated the coordinating wheel, Take a Sip. We have created an ensemble of fun gifts or decor ideas that would be great for your kitchen, a gift for a girlfriend, etc.
The first gift or decor idea is this 6" x 6" frame that we have embellished with bottle caps, Designer Series Paper, buttons and cut out coffee cups. We printed a fun quote onto Very Vanilla card stock, layered with coordinating card stock. Very fun and quite easy to coordinate with any favorite color scheme.
Next up is our set of four coasters. These are made with the regular 4" square coasters, covered with Very Vanilla card stock, sponged and embellished with stamps from the Morning Cup stamp set. We actually enlarged the stamps and ran our Designer Series Paper (DSP) through the printer so we could paper piece each stamp.
Coffee cozies are all the rage so we created one with felt. We used the enlarged coffee cup as a pattern to cut felt cups and hearts. The scallop trim was made with felt cut from the Stampin' Up! exclusive Big Shot die, Tasteful Trim. Notice our cup is sitting on another coaster that was decorated with the original stamps, colored and sponged.
For our miniature tree (perfect for the kitchen or a desk), we created coffee-themed ornaments. All the stamped images were stamped or layered on Very Vanilla card stock. Some were colored and some were paper pieced. We covered these with acrylic pieces. We added small decorated tea-dyed tags. Notice they are attached with mini clothes pins!
Last, we stamped directly on to a tea-dyed tea towel. This could be done for a whole set of matching towels, napkins or we actually put one around the base of our tree as a tree skirt! We did stamp on the towel with permanent ink.
Add a fun coffee/tea inspired card and any or all of these projects would be an adorable gift. Please check back after the blog tour for a few more details!
