Latte Love + Bubble Talk Day Four

Hello and welcome to the fourth day of the Papertrey Ink August countdown and the first Design Team group post. Today's group post is all about showcasing the new Latte Love stamp set and the coffee cozy die collection.  This combination comes just in time for the gift giving season!  Much like myself, I have a bunch of family members who enjoy a cup or two of coffee.  I'm pretty excited about the handmade coffee cozy gift sets I'll be wrapping and gifting this Christmas.
First up, the cozy and whole bean coffee gift set.
Here's a fun way to dress up a coffee bag... after filling and folding over the top, tuck in a few notched banner dies to form a sort of tag.  Either include a "to" and "from" or the name/description of the coffee beans inside.
Here's a shot of the reversible coffee cozy.  A pretty pattern fabric and aqua heart backed with...
aqua felt and embellished with a white felt heart.  The ends leftover from stitching the sides were simply tied into a a bow.  Here's how:  I used iron-on adhesive to attach the fabric to the felt.  The two layers together make assembly slightly more complicated, but the results are worth the effort.  :)
Using the Latte Love stamp set I created this simple yet fun card.
I love the whimsical look the stacked coffee cups add to this card.
Before I finish with today's post, I must share yet another card made using my new Bubble Talk stamp set and coordinating die collection.  This one includes a great color combo of raspberry fizz, orange zest and summer sunrise.
And also includes fun textures such as cork and gold glitter paper.

Well, that concludes my look at Latte Love, Coffee Cozy dies, Bubble Talk and it's coordinating diesJust remember... these stamp sets will be available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning August 15th
