Interactive Card Duo for the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends ...

Your Next Stamp is one of the sponsors for the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop so I wanted to make a card to share using YNS products. As you can see, I ended up making two! I have more information on how to be entered to win a YNS prize at the end of my post!!

{{{I have a YouTube Video showing more details on the cards, which you can also find HERE.}}}

I've had this coffee themed paper for a couple of years - it's a retired pattern from SU. While I tend to hoard special papers like this that I know I can't get any more of - this time I didn't hoard and actually used some of it to line the envelope flap. That adds such a nice touch to a card, don't you think?

I started out by cutting the YNS Photo Booth Panel Die from a woodgrain paper and decided to make a shaker card. The mugs and to-go cups were fussy cut from a different patterned paper in the package, and I thought it would be fun to add a different face stamp from the Oh Shiitake stamp set to each of the 4 squares.  Some sequins and filler and my shaker element was finished.

The fun sentiment is from the Washi Tape Sentiments, a YNS stamp set that is always on my stamping table because of the great sentiments included. I die cut the caffeine sentiment with the Washi Tape Sentiments die, and adhered it over the centre section of the Photo Booth Panel.

Here is a peek at the inside with a Funny Bones stamp, more fussy cut elements and one more stamped face.

When I was finished the card, I had the woodgrain fallaway pieces from the Photo Booth Panel Die on my stamping table. Hmmmmm - then I turned them over (the patterned paper is double sided) and the brown and white coffee print seemed like the perfect print to make a second card. I simply die cut one more Photo Booth Panel from white card stock and inlay at the print pieces into the openings.

I added some YNS Gumdrops, then pulled out a couple of (non YNS) coffee themed sets from my stash to finish it off.

The Scalloped oval was adhered to the card panel with an Action Wobble so it bobs and wobbles around. So fun!

Finally, here is a peek at the inside of the second card:
