Stampin' Up! Nothing's Better Than - Card from the Catalog


Hey hey it's Friday!  :)  This is my Card from the Catalog from this week.  I chose this one because I wanted to use the Gold Metallic Specialty Paper again today,  and because I like it!  However, I don't have the Bamboo Beauty stamp set that was used in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog (p. 48), so I decided to use the Nothing's Better Than stamp set again.  (I used it in Tuesday's YouTube video, too) 

Card Base ~ Mint Macaron Cardstock ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/4", score at 4-1/4"
Layer 1 ~ Gold Metallic Specialty Paper ~ approx. 3-1/2" x 2-1/4"
Layer 2 ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ approx. 3" x 1-1/2"
Inside Layer ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 4" x 5-1/4"
Mint Macaron scraps for the word 'Coffee' and the coffee cup (inside)

  • Stamp the coffee cup on the front of the card using Cinnamon Cider ink. 
  • Use Versamark to stamp the little asterisk (*) randomly in the empty spaces on the front of the card.  Cover with Gold Embossing Powder, tap off the excess then set with the Heat Tool. 
  • On Layer 3, stamp the sentiment with Cinnamon Cider ink.  
  • On a Mint Macaron scrap, stamp the coffee cup using Cinnamon Cider ink. 
  • Use the Painted Labels Dies to cut out a Gold label and to cut around the sentiment.  
  • Then, cut out the word 'coffee' and the stamped coffee cup using Love You More Than Dies. 
  • Use Liquid Glue to add 'coffee' to the smaller label. 
  • Determine where you are going to place the Gold label, but don't adhere it yet.  Place two Glue Dots where they will be covered by the Gold Label.  Then, wrap the the Vanilla Baker's Twine around the front of the card three times, securing the ends with the two Glue Dots. 
  • Use Stampin' Dimensionals to attach the Gold Label over the twine. 
  • Stamp the smaller label on the Gold Label with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

For the inside, stamp either 'because adulting is hard' or 'and be awesome' using Cinnamon Cider ink on the Basic White Cardstock. 
Adhere the Basic White CS to the inside of the card, then add the coffee cup in the corner. 

I hope you enjoyed this card!
