JustRite Release #2 Blog Hop - Coffee Gift Basket

Today, JustRite Stampers is having a Blog Hop to celebrate the second CHA stamp release! I am very excited to see what all of the ladies on the JustRite Blog Team have created for today's blog hop!!

You will want to check out the JustRite Stampers Blog, this past week they have been showing sneak peeks from Stamper's Dream. Also you can see all of the #2 Releases on the JustRite Website, click HERE to check out all of the New Products.

Today's post is a little long but I have lots of pictures to share with you so grab a cup of joe, sit back, relax and enjoy! To create my project I used several of the centers and borders from the Newly Released "A Little Caffeine" stamp set from JustRite Stampers along with the Times New Roman 15 pt. Font. I have to say I had so much fun creating all of the little goodies in the coffee basket! But before I get started showing you the project I want to show you a picture of all the items I used in the basket and what they looked like before I altered them.I like being able to take several inexpensive things and alter them for really nice gift sets. Now here is a picture of the finished gift basket.I started with the coffee cups. I wanted to alter them and I needed a template so the easiest thing to do was take one of the cups apart and I made a template from the cup itself. Once I had the template then I traced it onto some designer paper from My Mind's Eye. I adhered the designer paper and then I stamped the "Make it a Grande" center from the A Little Caffeine stamp set onto white cardstock using Tsukineko Memento, Rich Cocoa ink. Then I used the Wizard, die cutting and embossing tool along with my Nestabilities, Standard Circles Sm. S4-116 to cut and emboss a circle diecut. Then I colored the cup using Copic markers and inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink from Ranger. I also made a scalloped circle diecut using the Petite Scalloped Circles Sm. S4-117 Nestabilites. To do the scalloped circles I used some Core'dinations-The Chocolate Box Dark Pink/Chocolate cardstock and sanded the edges. Then I added some ribbon going around the center of the cups and added the die cuts.

I also wanted to mention that I used the same two colors of ink Tsukineko Memento, Rich Cocoa and Vintage Photo Distress Ink from Ranger along with Copic markers throughout the entire project.Next I made little sleeves to cover the two small bags of coffee.For the sleeve I used some BellaBella designer paper from My Mind's Eye and inked the edges. I also used another center from A Little Caffeine stamp set along with the Times New Roman 15 pt. Font. Here's a couple of pictures showing how the font is lined up and you can also see from the pictures I have trimmed the centers too.I have had several people ask about lining up the fonts and I have found for myself that if I write out whatever my sentiment is and then find the center that is a really good starting point. I start with the center at the top of the block and then work off of each side. Here is a picture of the notepad, for this I used a center and a border from the A Little Caffeine stamp set and the Times New Roman 15 pt. Font. To get the layered effect I used two different sizes of the Circle Nestabilities Standard Circles Lg. S4-114, Standard Circles Sm. S4-116 and the Petite Scalloped Circles Sm. S4-117 Nestabilities. The notepad already had two holes on each side at the top so I added the gold eyelets to the topper and tied it on with some ribbon.To dress up the towel and the candles I made bellie bands using the Victorian S4-167 border die template from Spellbinders along with Core'dinations cardstock and sanded it to reveal the colored core.To cover the tin with the coffee mix I used some designer paper from ChatterBox, Fine Tinsel Chocolate. I thought the little coffee pot timer was so cute!Then I used the coffee beans center from A Little Caffeine stamp set with the Times New Roman 15 pt. Font. Here is a close up of the top of the tin.Are you still hanging in here with me? I told you it was a long one *wink*.The last thing I did was to create a tag for the basket. This one was a little tricky but I was really careful and managed to line it up on the first try! First I stamped the center with the sentiment and the border and then using the same ink I stamped off the coffee cup on some scratch paper and then lined it up and stamped over top of the sentiment. I added an eyelet and tied the tag onto the basket with some ribbon.
