A Little Latte for Try a Sketch on Tuesday #643

It seems like forever since I’ve created a card for the TSOT #643 challenge, but I’ve always enjoyed playing with the sketches from the challenge. Therefore, I’m happy to share my A Little Latte card with you. This is the first time I’ve played with this suite of products, and it will definitely not be the last!

First, here’s a look at the sketch:

Here’s the card I created for this challenge:

What do I love about this suite? Let me count the ways – I love iced coffee, the color combinations and DSP are fabulous, the stamps are each wonderful (especially the coffee ring stamp), and the dies fit images on the DSP.

Here’s a close-up look at the suite:


  • The Early Espresso bae measures 8-1/2 by 5-1/2 inches, scored at 4-1/4 inches.
  • After embossing a piece of Lost Lagoon cardstock using the distressed brick 3D embossing folder, trim it to 4-1/8 by 5-3/8 inches.
  • HINT: Make sure you use the embossing folder before you trim the cardstock. If you don’t, your measurements will be off because of the deep embossing.
  • The Very Vanilla for the inside measures 4 by 5-1/4 inches.
  • Trim a piece of the DSP (designer series paper) to 6 by 2-1/2 inches for the envelope flap.
  • Punch a 1-inch circle of the DSP for the envelope seal, and run it through the XYRON create-a-sticker using the back side of the DSP.


  • Unless otherwise noted, I used multipurpose liquid glue to adhere the pieces of the card together.
  • Using the coordinating die, crop three of the bird’s eye view coffee cups from the DSP.
  • Outline the cups using an Early Espresso Stamping Write marker.
  • Add dimensionals to the back of the coffee cups.
  • Wrap a piece of the Pecan Pie center stripe ribbon around the embossed cardstock and tie it in a knot.
  • Adhere the embossed cardstock to the base.
  • Stamp the sentiment in Early Espresso ink and crop it using a Nested Essentials die.
  • Adhere the coffee cups and sentiment to the cardstock.
  • Add three adhesiive backed swirled dots in the corner of the cardstock.
  • Stamp the inside sentiment in Lost Lagoon.
  • Stamp the coffee rings, double stamping as needed.
  • Adhere the Very Vanilla cardstock to the inside of the card.
  • With that, I’d finished this coordinated card, envelope, and envelope seal set.

I’ve already ordered some of these products and have more on the way. I can’t wait to start playing with them! Take a look at just some of the new products available!

I love the script used for these sentiments. I’ve used the birthday one, and it fits so well on a landscape 5-1/2 by 4-1/4 inch card!  You can see that card here.

The Drizzling Droplets stamp needs to be used ASAP! Isn’t it gorgeous?

 This suite would be suitable for masculine or feminine cards, and I can’t wait to get my creative mojo flowing with the whole suite.
