Coffee Break

This is a project made with a clear rubber stamp set called 'Coffee Break' made by Gel-a-tin's Co. It is a decorated mini brick of Millstone Raspberries n cream ground coffee (just enough for one pot). The sentiment around the solid blue circles says "You're the mocha latte in a world full of cheap machine coffee". The paper was purchased at a local craft store. The inks used are Stampin' Up positively pink and brocade blue. The gift bag was a great garage sale find... I bought about 30 of these in all different colors for a dollar. Perfect match! Great gift idea for anyone.

Not only do I like coffee but so do some pretty good friends of mine. The mug is one of those Color a Mug that you can get at a local craft store for a dollar. I took out the coloring pages and let my imagination go. The inks used for this set are Stampin'Up Close to Cocoa, More Mustard and Chocolate Chip.The project to the right hand side is decorated with the same clear rubber stamp set by Gel-a-tin's. I used Millstone French Vanilla ground coffee for this one. This set really sparked some creativity for me because not The coffee cup on the tag was embossed with Gel-a-tin's Extra Foam Latte scented embossing powder and the coffee beans were embossed with Gel-a-tin's Cuppa Joe Black Coffee scented embossing powder. The aroma made me feel like I was sitting
in a coffee shop. These smell great!!!!
The picture on the bottom right is a shot of the bottom of the mug. I love this idea, inexpensive too.

The project to the left hand side is just about the same as the one on the right only different design. This Coffee Break set is great because you get so many different little stamps which make the project ideas limitless. The picture on the inner left didn't come out that great but this mug did. I used the same Gel-a-tins scented embossing powder on the tag. (Mmmm, smells wonderful). The sentiment says 'Take a break...' Very nice pick me up for a coworker or friend who is having a bad day. I think the Millstone Caramel Truffle ground coffee should do the trick. These mugs are great too because you can decorate the whole thing, even the bottom.
