It's Release Day @ Taylored Expressions!!

Hi everyone!! Happy Thursday! Today is release day at Taylored Expressions and I am SO excited!!!

The Baker's Dozen get to share peeks of yet ANOTHER amazing set (this one may be my favorite of the entire release!!!), Let's Do Coffee!!! Oh my word...I LOVE this set!!!

I created two different cards using this fab set, and I even decorated the inside of both, something that I rarely do!!!

For my first card, I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge, MTSC68 for my layout!!!

I stamped the bag of beans (how CUTE is that!!) from Let's Do Coffee in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and I cut out the image with Circle Nestabilities.

I sponged the edges with Memento Canteloupe & Memento Tangelo and colored the entire image with Copic Markers.

I added some Coffee Bean Sparkly Fluff to the pile of coffee beans surrounding the bag, and I have to say, I just LOVE how it looks!!!

The patterned paper is the DELISH Material Girl by Cosmo Cricket and Baja Breeze SU! Ribbon is quite a lovely match! I used my Bow Easy to create the bow!!

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment, "What's brewin'?" in Memento Tuxedo Black and then the darling to-go cup in Baja Breeze ink for a bit of interest. Some more Material Girl paper adorns the inside!!

For my second card, I wanted to a bit of a different look! I started with this week's Sketch Challenge on SCS, SC275 for my layout, and I went with a Kraft, Island Mist Medium & Choice Buttercream color combo and I will surely be using this combo again! LOVE them together!!

Once again, I used some Material Girl by Cosmo Cricket patterned paper...I am loving this paper lately!

I stamped the sentiment, "A cup of coffee shared with a friend is happiness tasted and time well spent", of course, from Let's Do Coffee, in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Kraft Cardstock and cut it out with Rectangle Nestabilities.

I sponged the edges with Memento Desert Sand and then stamped one of the coffee cups first in Whisper White Craft and then again in Memento Desert Sand.

I added a bow (once again, created with the Bow Easy) of Cream Twill (I LOVE this ribbon!) with a button from my stash. Tiny coffee colored pearls were added to the corners of each panel.

For the inside of my card, I added a strip of one of the Material Girl designs that I used on the front of my card. It is SUPER hard to see, but I stamped a row of coffee mugs (which are SO darling!!) in Memento Desert Sand along the width of the card. In real life, it's totally adorable (if I don't say so myself!!!)
