{Stencil Sunday} Coffee Card by Monica

Happy Sunday, STAMPlorations friends! It's time for the last Stencil Sunday inspiration of 2019. You'll get to see projects that show off how to creatively use ARTplorations stencils. And each month, we'll pick one winner of a $15 gift code -- the winner will be drawn from all comments left on the Stencil Sunday posts for the month, as well as from the designers' blogs.

STAMPgirl Monica paired one of our stencils with a 4x4 stamp set to create a delightful coffee card.

Here's Monica with her card:

Hi everyone! Today I am sharing a coffee card with you where I created a very subtle background using the stencil called Crisscrossed.

This is a very easy way to create one layered cards on plain white card stock. I was able to create this background using distress oxide vintage photo and a blending tool.

I used the stamp set called Snow Cozy to stamp the coffee cups onto a circle punch. The sentiments also came from this set and were stamped directly onto the card.

I created little little pockets to house the coffee circles and used my circle punch to create a thumb slot. These slots are just enough so that you can see your coffee images when they are in their "cozy" pockets.

For more details, you can visit me over at Taylormadecards4u.


Isn't that a fun coffee-themed card? For a chance to win a $15 gift code to the STAMPlorations store, leave a comment here and on Monica's blog by January 8. We'll announce the winner in the December winners post on January 10.

Stencil Sunday will be back in January featuring beautiful projects by STAMPgirls Sue and Shirley.


  1. These are a great idea. They would also work for Coffee House Gift Cards (something I give and receive often) - you could hide them behind the stamped circles. Brilliant - I'll save this :-) Thanks.
