Coffee & Books Stamped Gift Set

Hello homies! Today I've got a card gift set that I'm gonna show off.


I don't know about you but I L-O-V-E to give presents! And I also like to make friends. Which puts me (and my wallet) in a conundrum when it comes to Christmastime. This year, I've decided to make a card gift set tailored to each of my friends' personalities.

I have one particular friend who loves coffee and loves books, so I broke out the new Good Books & Coffee stamp set and the Literary Caffeine-ations stamp set and got to work. 



I used all different shades of Tim Holtz Distress Crayons to smudge and smear and create an artsy (but very easy) coloring technique. 



I just LOVE the sayings in the Coffee & Books set (I know I'm biased because I designed them) but they are perfect for anyone who loves coffee as much as I do. 

And now I have an easy peasy little giftie to give a friend. 

This set is going to go play along in:

  1. These are great and an inspiration. My brother's birthday is on the 27th and I am going to give him a gift card. I do have the sentiment stamp so will make a coffee card and use the sentiment "...discount on coffee." Cool - thanks for an idea.
