CSS Release Replay: Life's Nicest Perks

Release replay week continues today at Clear and Simple Stamps with another look at the Morning Brew series. I used the A Little Java stamp set and coordinating Coffee Pot dies to put together this gift set that’s perfect for a coffee drinking friend.

Here’s a look at the card. I used one of the coffee pot images, stamped on a matching die cut piece. It’s set off from the cream panel with a brown chevron striped strip and a kraft circle. I stamped the friendship sentiment next to the chevron strip, then added a few mossy green enamel dots around the image as accents.

And, here’s the to-go cup I customized using stamps from the A Little Java set. The cup’s bottom comes off so that you can make your own insert to personalize the cup. I used cream cardstock and randomly stamped the coffee pot images all over the cardstock. Once the cardstock was filled, I put the insert back into the cup and wrapped it with a kraft sleeve made with CSS’s new Beverage Cozy die.

Don’t miss what the rest of the CSS team has created with the the Morning Brew series. Here’s where to find them:
