Coffee and Friends.....

Since I am a bit of a coffee addict, I couldn't resist this new embossing folder from Tim Holtz - I actually really like the Sissix texture fades, they leave a really crisp impression - anyway, here it is....... 


I die cut a tag with a mug from Gypsy Wanderings cartridge with my Explore - in kraft with a backing of white.......



I made the mug look a bit more interesting by writing the word smile, and dotting some tiny dots of orange, then covered the lot in glossy accents. The seam binding was inked as well. Sentiment is by MFT. The twine is chocolate brown in real life.......


Then of course, I was left with the tiny mug shape from the tag, so this time I inked the inside of the embossing folder with Gathered Twigs distress ink, which left a nice smudgy coffee cup background for the little kraft mug. Sentiment dies are by Clearly Besotted, tiny hearts and stitched tag MFT


To tell you the truth, I don't know where my coffee addiction came from, for years and years I was strictly a cup of tea type of person - I think it was discovering the joys of large iced coffees in the Florida sunshine that did it for me, and now, here I am even making cards about the stuff!

See you tomorrow x

  1. Well another inch of snow to wake up to this morning with already 8 inches on the ground still. It did melt some today. Next week is to bring warmer temps and rain. I hope all this stuff goes away. I am so a coffee person and I love these cards. Want to sell them? About time for another sale of all those lovely cards. I have some to post and my laptop died. I am going to see about ordering another one tomorrow... I am lost with out it because I used it in the family room and posted to the blog while watching TV. Hope all is well with you. Great job sweet friend....

  2. I love your cards and every time I see coffee cards I think of you and miss the Dunkin' Donuts stories. I was looking at yesterdays project and have recently gotten some Spellbinders Die D-lites. The package says to use with the Grand Caliber (which I don't have). Do you know how to use these with the Cuttlebug? You seem to know everything about everything.

  3. If I don't get my coffee in the morning, I am a VERY unhappy person with a headache. I really love iced coffee in the summertime and creamy lattes when it's cold outside. Love your cards. Thanks for sharing the mug from Gypsy Wanderings. I didn't know there was one on that cartridge.

  9. I used to have a pot of coffee on all day long. I had friends drop in often, because they knew they could get a cup, no matter the time. Now...two cups and I'm done! Lol, funny how we change. Cute cards. I like the second one best, I think. But would enjoy receiving either. TFS, hugs Jess

  10. I don't like coffee either, but, I love your cards!!!! I am addicted to tea, hot or cold. I collect teapots and teacups. I had to stop collecting once my son was born, now they are packed away for safe keeping.

  14. I think both cards are darling but I like the second one the best. I'm a iced tea person. Hot tea for breakfast and iced tea the rest of the day. When I was little my Mother wouldn't let me drink coffee because she said it would shrink my height. Well, guess what? I'm only 4' 10"! What happened!
