Coffee Gift Cards featuring Joy Clair Stamps (I Missed You Guys!)

Hello, friends!  Man does it feel good to be back with you all!  New year, fresh start!  Thank you so much for hanging with me during my long and unexpected absence.  I promise that a Curl E. Q&A video will be posted soon with a lot more details (probably more than you want) about what I've been up to and what exciting turns my life has taken and what it all means for my blog and YouTube channel but bottom line is that I am back and I don't plan on going anywhere anytime soon!  I'm thinking the videos might slow down a bit but my goal is at least one video a week, more when time allows, and I'm hoping that I will do more straight blog posts since they take less time to put together and that way I can stay in touch with you all!


So now that that is out of the way, let's dive into these fun coffee gift cards I created for my hubby to give to the choreographer and costumer on his musical that opens next week!  These amazing stamps were sent to me by Christy at Joy Clair Stamps and I gotta tell you guys, I am in love!  This Coffee Love stamp set is one of the best I've seen - the fonts are just so perfect and remind me of Central Perk on Friends!


I used a gift card die to cut the grooves on the inside of the card to hold a gift card and cut some beautiful patterned papers from My Mind's Eye using the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Hexagon dies to create a fun layout.  VersaMark ink allowed me to stamp that snazzy coffee sentiment all over the card base and get a tone-on-tone look.  Love using VersaMark for watermarking!


I love the finished product and hope you all enjoy the video!  I got a brand new Yeti microphone from the hubs for Christmas and I am super impressed with the audio quality!  I had no idea what I was missing!  Again, thank you so much for sticking with me and I hope you all had an amazing holiday season if you celebrate and a great couple of months if you don't!  See you again soon!

  2. Glad to see you back Tara!!! This card is awesome - I totally need to get this stamp set. I always give Tim Horton's cards to our coaches and teachers and this set is perfect for that.
