If you are not a coffee lover, I'm betting that you know someone who is! If you aren't though, you can just pretend this is hot chocolate and EVERYBODY loves hot chocolate, right?! :) I hadn't used the coffee/hot chocolate image from Sprinkled with Love, so I made it a goal to stamp a sweet impression...that hasn't seen ink yet! You get soooo many wonderful images in a Taylored Expressions stamp set, so make sure you use them all!! This was a pretty cool challenge I set for myself, actually. There was also a sentiment from Discover Your Wings, that I found hadn't been inked up either. I paired the two, sad, uninked stamps together and found they made magic! Lookee!
What do you think?! Magic folks? I know happiness can be found in a cup of coffee on a daily basis, so these paired perfectly! I'm still patting myself on the back over here for coming up with this, LOL! Well, you know I just can't make a card by itself. How about a little gift card holder to go with??
Everyone has a huge stash of glassine bags, right? So all I did was cut up a piece of element cards from the Early Bird (Cosmo Cricket) crafting kit and stamped another image of my coffee/chocolate milk and popped it up right on top! This is perfect for sliding in a gift card to...Starbuck's yes?? That store must make a killing on gift cards!
If you look closely, you can see little coffee remnants inside my glassine bag. I poured a bit of coffee in there and then dumped it back in my container. My glassine bag now has a coffee scent to it. Ta Da!!! So easy and I just loooove the smell of coffee!
One thing I did want to point out was that I used a Clear Spica glitter pen on my coffee, and it looks soooo cool in person! Click on the pic for a better image. Also, I just noticed that the glitter pens are on sale in the TE Store HERE for only $2.49! Big bang for your buck, I'm tellin' ya folks!
I hope you got a little inspiration today...or a little dose of e-coffee to bring happiness to your day? :) Thanks so much for stopping by and I challenge you to Stamp a Sweet *uninked* Impression today!
