Happy New Year my sweet friends!!! I always love writing a blog post to kick off the new year! Is there ever a time where we have more optimism for the upcoming new year? Well, I do!! Many things to come with a new year, but today I’m introducing a new Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month! I love coffee and I love tea, so I knew that one day I’d bring out a 3D Vignette Cup. So this one has been on my list for a long time – this sweet set is called Pop Up 3-D Vignette Coffee, Tea, or Me and I styled it specifically so that it could be used for Valentine’s Day. As with other vignettes, you can make a 3D item or use it flat on a card.
Inspiration for the Pop Up 3-D Vignette – Coffee, Tea, or Me
I have a major love affair with Coffee and Tea. It’s my self-care and I savor the moments I can sit down with a friend over coffee and while away the hours. Who am I kidding though – I absolutely savor the time when I can sit down with a cup of coffee and just think. I’m not the only one, I know there are cardmaking groups that make cards and posts only about coffee! I think it goes hand in hand with our craft!
What’s Inside the Pop Up 3-D Vignette – Coffee, Tea, or Me
This month’s set comes with 21 dies. A cup that can be cut as a solid or filigree along with mirrored cup handles that look good from both sides (yes, I’m left-handed but the cups can be right-handed cups too!) The cups also come with a rounded top that lets you see the back dimension and even a die that when cut from a different color makes it look like your cup is full of liquid. For embellishments – you can go for regular flowers are heart flowers with stems. Lastly, there are a host of words, and words can be made from the individual letter dropouts.
Check out the video to see how easy it is to create a cup of love for your coffee or tea-loving friend:

Could anything be sweeter? This die template is simply begging for sweet little flowers. Here I used Floral Potpourri for a quick one-minute embellishment. Ultimately, the little bow at the bottom makes this arrangement so that I can use the tea bag die and it won’t fall out of the bottom. Be sure to see the video where I show you how.
Some folks like it simpler and only want to make a card!! This die works out marvelously on a card base. Don’t forget – the handle is reversible!
Lastly, I wanted to make it up with an elegant flare! For this cup I wanted you to envision the steam wafting up! For the steam, I cut up pieces of the handle and glued them together.
Did you see that I just released a new video on my Garden Shutters Interactive Card? I haven’t made a Youtube video for my channel in a while and it felt great to jump back into the drivers seat – you can see that video at this link: https://youtu.be/8DtPstDCCWE

Happy New Year! I hope this year brings you many joys and fulfillment as you journey through the days!
Happy New Year! May 2020 be filled with joy!
I am so happy I am a member of this group. Absolutely love this card. They will be “just because” cards for all my girls (8 current count!!) Happy New Year!!
Oh boy! This one is going to be one of your biggest hits! It is absolutely gorgeous and I love how clever you were to use the handle as steam. I wish you a very happy and creative New Year!!!
Once again you have made the fist day of the month my happy day!!! I can not wait to get this one so many dear ladies in our church are going to LOVE this card so much it can not get here fast enough
Beautiful as always. You could put individual tea packs into the cup, just love it.
I love the first of the month release day and what a delightful die set. The amount of detail included is amazing, I don’t think you missed a thing. This is going to be fun to work with. Your creativeness and your ingenuity are truly “amazing.” What a way to start a new year!
[…] you’d like to see what Becca made with this Club Kit, check out her blog HERE. Everything she does is super elegant, so it will be fun for you to see the design […]
This teacup / coffee cup set is absolutely adorable!!!! I love it and can hardly wait to get mine. I belong to a club who is hosting a tea party in April. I would love to make one for everyone, but since I work it would be too much to make 88 of them! I might make one for each table for a drawing. And maybe one for each lady in my club….eventually. As usual you have such an eye for detail….even down to the brilliant use of the handle to make steam. Thank you for making me smile!
So excited about this die set, as I love anything tea related, and elated that I joined your club from the beginning! Every one of the dies I have received have given me and the receiver of card(s) made with these die sets joy. Becca, I cannot thank you enough for that. I know you and your team will come up great inspiring makes using this month’s die set. I hope there will be some masculine examples in the hop!
Soy de Perú y en año pasado empecé a seguir la página y me fascinan sus troqueles y trabajos que presentan es una maravilla. Aún tengo muy pocos troqueles; porque recién los empecé a comprar.
[…] you some thoughts on how you might use this set. You can see my initial inspiration at this post HERE. Psst…stay with me until the end of the post, I have a winner […]
I really love this! So beautiful ?
