Gina K Coffee Liquid Applique Foam

BOY is it hard to get back into the swing of things after having vacation time off for the holiday! I went back to work today and slugged down coffee all day! I've been just dragging! Good thing I failed to post cards from my crank-em-out weekend in St Cloud, so I have some blog posts I can do until I get back into stamping mode!

So I think these coffee cards that I did with the new Gina K "My Cuppa Joe" coffee set are SO appropriate for my day today. I needed all-occasion cards in the worst way, and these cute little office-y cards will do the trick. I can stamp any sentiment I want on the inside, because the front just says "You're cool beans"! Some of these are Thank-you cards, with the sentiment "Thanks a Latte" on the inside.

I used up a bunch of old Shabby Princess polka dot paper that I had from last year's Christmas cards, so I was glad to be able to use stuff up! And this houndstooth brown paper is from AGES ago, I can't even identify it! The stripe and red coffee bag patterned paper is by Scenic Route, and the mug paper is an old Daisy D's plaid.

I used white liquid applique to puff up the whipped cream in the coffee. It adds a cool 3-d element to the cards!

Happy MONDAY, y'all!
