All You Need Is Love and Coffee!

Hi friends! Happy Valentines Day! I really think that sentiment sums it up ;) One of my fav things my hubby does is the awesome lattes he makes on the weekends. I don't think I could live without coffee some days! So here is the Valentines card I created for him. These Coffee Faces and Coffee Sentiments clear stamps from Pretty Cute Stamps are a couple of my favourites, and I love how many different sentiments for so many occasions are included!

I started off with a piece of resist kraft printed background paper from a Tim Holtz paper pad. I used my pinks, reds and tea dye Distress Stains to colour the paper that I first had sponged with Picket Fence Distress Ink (to give it a lighter base). I love how the resist pops through!

Then, I layered on a square journaling card and added some CMTH coffee stain stamps. I used the coordinating SVG files from Pretty Cute Stamps to first cut out the images with one of my favourite tools - my Cricut Explore, and then I was able to easily stamp the images before colouring with Prismacolor and Hobby Colour Markers. I added the sweet faces on after, heat embossing the white one.

I added a couple diecut hearts and sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps and popped up the coffee press. These neat beans on the bottom of the card are included in the PCS coffee set.

Inside, I added some extra coffee stain stamps and the I Love You A Latte sentiment from the PCS Coffee Sentiments set. The Happy Valentines Day stamp is from the Tim Holtz Crazy Talk set, and I decorated the envelope to match.

Mike was very happy to get open his card this morning, and of course he got some chocolate to go along with it! We always do a little something special with the girls and they loved opening some handmade cards, chocolate and little stuffed animals. I was very lucky to get beautiful white roses, a lovely card and some yummy candy! I think making someone feel special, whether its for Valentines or any day, is something they will carry with them for a long time.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a day filled with love, and of course a little craftiness!
