Coffee, Chocolate and Wine!

I just love a great stamp set!  I love Hero Arts.  I've said that before.  Before Archiver's closed their doors forever (*sob*), my wallet and I found ourselves shopping one last time.  I bought a couple of stamp sets for old times sake and because I "needed" them.  I feel like I did my civic duty to help Archiver's resolve any outstanding debt it may have.  My friend, Cyndi, also did her duty as well.  Many times.... In fact, we are surprised that we, alone, did not keep Archiver's solvent.  *sigh*....

Anyway, onto new things and now that my favorite store is closed I will just have to order online to get the latest and greatest Hero Arts items!  heheh...

Here is a stamp set I bought and at first glimpse it looks cute and ok....but I only bought it because it had the words "chocolate", "coffee" AND "wine" included.  Three of my great loves.  I thought to myself "This is the perfect stamp set! It covers everything!".  Here is the set:
So, I got busy and basically made 3 versions of the same card.  Here they are:

I just used white Zing embossing powder, some basic colored cardstock and some printed papers from Lily Bee which came from a previous Simon Says Stamp Card Kit of the Month.  On two of the cards I used a spell binders scalloped die to cut out the mats.

Here are the 3 together....
What a fun set.  I love it!

Happy Crafting!


  1. Totally fun cards!! Love the embossed sentiments!
    I can understand why you like that stamp set so much!! Looove those sentiments!
    Fun (and true) :) :)

    PS: thanks for all the blog<3!!! you're the best!! :)

  2. The cards remind me of wonderful product wrappers/ads with the wording & colors. My fav would be the Chocolate one.
    "Sunshine HoneyBee"

  3. Wonderful!
    I know which card is mine!
    I am getting the card, yes?

  4. Fun set indeed! Don't forget BACON ... love your blog, Susan, and your PL 2013, and all of your cards. Oh, I wish I had time for the cards! But no stamps. Oh no, not going there. Some day ... sigh. ~ Lynn M.

  5. Love these!! I never did make it over the Archiver's during the sale before they closed - still kicking myself for that. :-( Although I suppose my wallet is in better shape... :-)
