TE Sneak Release Day: Let’s Do Coffee

coffee shop box
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.
card 2 to Taylor
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. 

coffee shop card
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.
wake up coffee
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!?

Card kit contents: 10 Choice Cardstock A2 card bases
10 A2 envelopes
8 panels of Choice Cardstock sized 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" (for images and layering)
15 sheets of patterned paper sized for card making at 4" x 6" (3 sheets each of 5 double-sided patterns)
20 sheets of 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" cardstock (4 sheets each of 5 colors)

For some reason, the first two cards are red X's for me (I keep coming back, hoping they'll appear - so far, no luck). But the box and the third one are fantastic!
