set of tea

I LOVE my coffee. That obsession doesn’t stop with my delicious caffeinated drink, it goes into my love for coffee/tea themed stamps as well. Like butterfly stamps if its coffee I need it too! These stamps are from Lizzie Anne Designs, and they are from the Simply Singles line. This is the Latte cup, and Latte Sentiment.

So, for this post I did a card, with a matching altered coffee bag. My friend Laura sent the bag to me! Thank you!!!!! Love it.

So I was thinking of a pretty shelf for my “tea cups” to sit on. I used my Martha Stewart border punch, and made the bottom. I then scored/folded the “shelf” part.

I stamped my cups on the patterned paper by Crate paper (Birdie collection), and cut them out. On one I stamped it on the opposite side, cut and moved the handle! That way I get a reverse image. make sense???? I used So Swirly (also Lizzie Anne) for the steam on the cups.

I stamped a verse from Sketched Sentiments (a must have from LA as well) and popped out with the large oval punch by SU! I then free handed the scalloped border around it. That was NOT fun! Im not good at stuff like that.

Anyway-some Martha Stewart ribbon and cardstock base and I was good to go! I felt the Paisley pattern looked like wall paper!

I also used my same border punch to make place mats under the cups or doilies as many would say.

Cute huh?

Bag of beans 


Well this speaks for itself. The coffee cup is 3D. I used the scalloped oval, cut in 1/2 as my “tablecloth” for the cup to sit on. Primas make everything perfectly pretty!

Thanks for looking!

Hope you enjoy YOUR coffee.
