Press On With Confidence!

Stampin' Up! Press On With Confidence Card by Helen Chapman Handmade Crafts

Hello and welcome! Today I would like to share with you a card I created using the upcoming Stampin’ Up! Press On Stamp Set (sneak peek alert!). This stamp Set features in the Stampin’ Up! August – December 2020 Mini Catalogue which goes live on 4th August. I’m calling this my Press On With Confidence card!

This catalogue is filled with Christmas, Autumn and all-year-round products so there’s definitely something for everyone. If you don’t have a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and you would like a copy of the catalogue you can fill in a form here.

As soon as I saw the Press On Stamp Set, it just jumped into my basket! I love coffee and there are some really cute images and great sentiments. Here’s the first project I created…

Let’s make it…

I had the idea for the layout straight away which meant I needed a different sized card base to the usual A6. This card is DL sized. To create this card base, take a piece of Whisper White Thick cardstock and trim to 19.8cm along the long edge (leaving the 20cm edge in tact). Score along the same edge at 9.9cm.

Next is a layer of Coastal Cabana cardstock measuring 19.1 x 8.9 cm. The main card front is then a layer of Whisper White cardstock measuring 18.1 x 7.9 cm.

Onto the card front I have stamped the row of cups in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and the coffee beans in Early Espresso ink. The cups are coloured using the Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends Markers.

The large cup is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto both Whisper White and a piece of the Playing With Patterns Designer Series Paper (DSP). The cup wrap is trimmed out of the DSP and adhered to the fussy-cut cup.

I have stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using one of the Tasteful Labels Dies. The same die is also used to cut out a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock. These labels are layered together and the cup is adhered too them. The whole piece is the adhered over the stamped coffee beans using Stampin’ Dimesionals.

Both adhering the card front to the Coastal Cabana layer I have cut a notch out using a small circle punch. Once adhered I used a hole punch to create a hole in the centre of the notch. A piece of Crickled Seam Binding Ribbon has been coloured using the Calypso Coral Dark Stampin’ Blends Marker and then threaded through the hole.

The final touch is provided by a few of the Playing With Patterns Resin Dots (Coastal Cabana).

What do you think to my Press On With Confidence Card?

I hope you like my Stampin’ Up! Press On With Confidence Card. This is such a fun stamp set for the coffee lovers in your life – think cards, gift boxes, home decor, and more! I love the bright, fresh colour combination of Whisper White, Coastal Cabana and Calypso Coral with the little hint of Early Espresso.
