TE-coffee makes us awesome

I had this card featured over on the Taylored Expressions Blog this past week. I have been having a blast creating with all of her beautiful products. 

I love coffee. I love the how it tastes, I love how it smells, and recently I discovered iced coffee. It is so easy to make at home. Thanks to The Pioneer Woman, I have been keeping this in my fridge this summer. Try it; you'll love it! To celebrate the joy of coffee, I decided to combine coffee and rainbows -- what's not to love?

I used the striped pattern from the Rainbow Brights 6x6 Paper Pack. I cut out a large circle from the center and cut another smaller circle from white cardstock to nest inside and be the centerpiece of my card. I used foam tape to pop up the whole Rainbow paper panel.

I stamped the large sentiment from Hug in a Mug. I love that there are a few options to place in that empty space. I used the "makes us awesome" and used my MISTI to ensure perfect placement.

I stamped one of the mugs and used my Copics to color it up. I did some easy fussy cutting and then popped it up above my sentiment. I used a circle punch to add a hole to the handle and tied on a yellow twine bow. Some enamel dots finished off the embellishments.

Head on over to the TE Blog for more inspiration. The new release is right around the corner!



  1. Totally cute! Love the brightly striped paper - but with the colors you've chosen and the way you have laid it out - the coffee mug still stands out!


Thanks so much for your kind and supportive words. I appreciate each of you taking the time to leave some love. Have a great day!
