Coffee-Lover’s Gifts with Prickley Pear

Hi friends! I’m sneaking in today with a little surprise post.  I’m so excited to say that I’ve been asked back to guest design for Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps this spring. Over the next couple of months, I’ll be popping in on Thursdays with lots of fun projects to share featuring some of my favorite Prickley Pear stamps, starting today with this little gift set that’s perfect for all the coffee-lovers in your life.

This fun set includes a card and a matching pillow box, and was made with a super adorable red rubber image from Prickley Pear called Coffee Stain. I really love the artsy, random look to this stamp. These truly look like real little coffee cup rings, don’t they? So perfect for creating your own custom background paper and so easy to do, too. And what a great match for that fun journaling card I’ve been dying to use.

To create my own custom background paper, I randomly stamped the Coffee Stain image repeatedly onto kraft cardstock. I stuck with dark brown ink to mimic the real look of coffee cup rings. Then I simply cut down my panel and layered it onto a white card base. Machine stitching around the card adds a decorative touch. I adhered the coffee sentiment card onto some scalloped-edged paper, tying it with baker’s twine before adding it to my card base using foam dots for dimension. Last touch is a fun chipboard bottle cap embellishment that perfectly matches my theme.

The matching gift box is just as easy. After die cutting my box shape from kraft cardstock, the Coffee Stain image was once again randomly stamped in dark brown ink over the entire surface. Then just fill the box with goodies and tie it closed with baker’s twine. I added a white cardstock belly band to match the card and added a few die cut embellishments for a fun hang tag. Super simple and super fun!
