Today is the day you’ve been waiting for, huh? All 4 full size, 1 mini and 3 Cuppies A la Carte and 3 card kits are available to purchase at Taylored Expressions!
This is also the day we will preview my FAVORITE set in the release; Tena is back to share her love of java in Let’s Do Coffee! I adore this new set in the AppleDoodle Ink line of stamps! I also have the Let’s Do Coffee card kit to share with you! In the first picture, you see how I decorated the outside of my box with papers in the kit, Cosmo Cricket Early Bird.
Here is the first card I made to share with you using one of the fun cups in the set, with polka dots, I thought it would be fun to color it to mimic the cute polka dot paper in the kit. I added the use of the Blossom Nestability die for the circle frame.
My 2nd card showcases the set along with the Window Shopping set which was released a few months ago, now we have a window full of coffee cups! How fun is this to give to a friend who loves coffee? I just love the sentiment and wanted to to something fun with it to fill the empty space in the ‘window’ and balance out my card. I paper-pieced the window with the papers in the kit and water-colored the tiny coffee cups on this card.
My 3rd card uses the Wake Up Coffee blend atop a mound of coffee beans! I also paper-pieced the very familiar To Go coffee mug and water-colored the image. On the inside of the card it says “All the goodness of life in a cup” how perfect is that?! Well, for those of you who LOVE java like I do, you can appreciate that because once I get my cup of gourmet coffee in the morning at the office – I can’t help but say ‘yum’ because it tastes so wonderful to me!
Want to know what you get in the card kit? A TON of stuff for just $14.95, you can make at least 10 cards (that’s how many card bases you get) but I guarantee you will have leftover supplies and can add a few more from your stash and increase the amount of cards made! Don’t forget you will have access to a downloadable inspiration sheet when you purchase one of our three new card kits, with cards made by the design team. This makes a great gift too for the person who loves to give cards but may not make cards and you have a gift box all ready to go! How great is that!?
