Thanks a Latte!

One of my all-time favorite Eyelet Outlet brad sets has to be the Coffee Brads, which come with white cups, red cups AND coffee beans. So of course I was pretty psyched when I saw the new Coffee Stamps which are quite literally made to go with the brads!

One of the reasons I love coffee themed products is that I love to join my friend Amy Tsuruta and the Coffee Loving Cardmakers in their seasonal blog hops and the summer one is going on right now!

I love that all the EO Clear Stamp sets are a mix of images and really great sentiments, sized exactly right to be used with the brads. For my first card, I stamped the "Cool Beans" sentiment  over and over (...and over and over...) on a panel of plain white cardstock, using lots of gorgeous bright shades of archival ink. 

Then I added the (literal!) cool beans by making some of the Coffee Bean Brads the centers of three different sizes of Paper Flowers. My mat is fabulous Splatter Tape and there's a little strip of beautiful watercolory Wide Flower Tape to add extra interest!

My second card features Butterfly Washi, which I used to make my background squares that hold the sentiment, "Thanks a Latte" stamped on a heart shape. I added Flower Tape, some fussycut butterflies, and a pair of Coffee Cups nested on top of Plain White Flowers for a summery look!

Need more ideas? There's daily inspiration on the EO blog not to mention more content on Facebook,  Instagram and Pinterest... and we add new projects nearly every single day! 


  1. How awesome are bean flowers = yes, please!

  3. I love the flowers. This is gorgeous!

  4. both of your cards are great. What caught my eye the most was the butterflies. Love how your washi baackground looks.

  5. WOW WOW... these are fantastic! Love that cool beans rainbow background... those beautiful flowers with the coffee bean centers... and the butterfly card is beautiful!

  6. Great designs and I love the coffee beans on the flowers. I would never have thought of that.
