Coffee Time

In case some of you didn't know, I LOVE coffee. I love the taste, the smell, the caffeine- it's all good. I thought I would share a few of my favorite coffee themed projects in honor of a special sale going on at stampingscrapping.com. I wanted this card to resemble a coffee mug with the sleeve on it. I used core'diantions cardstock for the base and embossed it with one of the new
quickutz embossing folders. They work just like the Cuttlebug folders do. For the sleeve, I took some more core'dinations and embossed it with the distressed stripes Cuttlebug folder. I then sanded both pieces of cardstock to bring the embossing out a little more. I stamped the sentiment from the new justrite a little caffeine set, colored the mug with a copic marker, and cut it out with a label 2 nestabilitie. To finish off this coffee card, I added the coffee card scent which is on sale this week at stampingscrapping.com for only $2.75. This scent is a must for a any coffee project and goes perfectly with this just rite set. This next card also uses the just rite

caffeine set for the sentiment. This set is really cool because if you use it with the border like I did in the first card, it uses the 2 inch block, but if you take the border off and just use the center like I did above, it will fit perfectly on the 1 5/8 inch circle block you probably already have. I used lattebella for this card and colored her with copics to match the paper (Bo Bunny). The saying from just rite fit perfectly in my circle nestabilitie. When it was all assembled, I added some scent put it in a clear envelope and it was ready to go! If you love coffee as much as I do, I hope I've inspired you to try the new a little caffeine set by just rite and don't forget to grab your coffee scent my cards while it's on sale this week!

AWESOME!! I'm a coffee freak as well and tend to make lots of coffee themed cards. If only I could give them to myself! LOL. Not all my friends are as addicted as I am. I LOVE the 'sleeve' technique, you totally nailed it.
