Coffee Lover Thank You Cards

Hey Divas!  Long time no see!  I have missed you all and it is good to be back on my blog.  During my absence from the blog, I have been crafting.  I just haven't posted my projects.  But I am back now so here is the first of many to come!

All my friends know that I love coffee!  Many of them do as well.  So having the Love You A Latte cart for my Cricut was a must!  My favorite brand is - you guessed it- Starbucks.  I made these cards with them in mind!

Here is what I used
  • Love You A Latte Cartridge - coffee cup
  • Jaded Blossom Stamps "Java Time" set - sentiments and coffee beans
  • Stampin' Up Inks
  • Fiskars paper crinkler

Jaded Blossom makes some really cute stamps for cards, treats and favors.  As a matter of fact, that is their specialty! Check them out by clicking here.  But please know that you can use their stamps for so much more.  For those of you that have a Silhouette or the new Cricut Explore machines, they also make SVG cuts to go along with some of their stamps. Isn't that awesome!  I used 2 of their sentiment stamps from the Java Time set on these cards.  Here is one up close.

I think the crinkled paper is reminiscent of the sleeves that Starbucks puts on our coffee cups.

I stamped the beans in 2 different colors of brown ink and then the green.  Looks like the different stages coffee beans go through before they make the good stuff that is in your cup. (yeah, I know too much about coffee beans! )

These will probably get a gift card added to them and given to someone sweet.  If you like my cards, be sure to leave me some blog love below in the comments.  Until next time...
