This set is not just for coffee lovers...it's got the chocolate and book lovers covered as well!  I can think of many ways to incorporate these stamps with a gift tag, gift bag and in this case...a bookmark!  Add a mug of coffee flavored chocolates and pair it with a book and you've got a great gift ensemble!

I started with some foil patterned paper by Recollections for the base. The cup image was popped up with foam tape for added dimension. Some Verve florals - white embossed on watercolor cardstock so I could color with Zig Clean Color brush markers - were added to the bottom.   A few gold sequins echo the gold foiling in the patterned paper.

 I couldn't stop here without creating a card as well...


A clean and simple design that allowed me to use some of my neglected washi tape!  I first splattered some gray ink (Smoky Slate) over the card base.  I die cut three of the happiness sentiment to give it the look of chipboard.  I separated the 'happiness is' sentiment stamp so I could pair 'is' with the happiness die.  The cups were stamped with Ripe Persimmon distress ink and Ocean Drive Pure Color dye ink by WPlus9.  The matching dies make it so easy to have perfectly cut images to 'pop' on a card.

You should have come to my blog after visiting Sheri.  If you need to start at the beginning, head on over to the Verve blog so Julee can get you started.  From here, you'll want to visit Charmaine and see what she has created!
