How've You Bean?

I wanted to share with you today the other Fiskars stamp set that I purchased.  This set is called Latte Love and again the images were just too cute to pass up. 
I created two cards using this set.  One of my favorite treats is a Starbucks latte so it was only natural for me to adore that image.  I used all "coffee" colored paper, added some stitches and finished it off with some fun polka dot ribbon.  I thought it would be a fun card to send to a friend with an enclosed gift card to their favorite coffee house. 
I love the little coffee bean border stamp!!
For some added dimension, I stamped the steam on a little piece of cardstock, cut it out, and used pop-dots to raise it off of the card. 
For my next card I used one of my favorite color pallets---red, blue, and cream. 
I don't usually decorate the inside of my cards, but I loved this sentiment and wanted it to look extra special
Well all this talk of coffee has made me want a cup.  We forgot to tell our puppies, Mabel and Sassy about the time change this weekend and they were up earlier than ever.  A nice cup of warm coffee is just what I need about now.........

You're right-this is a cute set! Love the crads you made...the steam really "makes" it. You've certainly been busy in your studio...we need some sun to be outside!

Oh, I love coffee and, oh, I love these cards. Both of them. The colors on the second one are fabulous and the way you finished the inside looks great!

Your cards make me want to have a cup of coffee which I can't because it is time I really should be in bed, but I had to check and see what my friends were doing. Take care.
