Coffee & Nuts Go Together Like Thelma & Louise

Welcome June! It's Jack's last day of First Grade today. I can't really have a Second Grader already can I? He is excited for summer to start, as am I. And it's also the launch of our new catalog! Woo Hoo! So many fun, new and exciting things to play with! When I saw the inspiration for this week's challenge I was over the moon excited! Not only was I inspired with the colors, I loosely based by creation on the layout as well. It's a "two-fer"!

When I saw the coffee themed card, I immediately thought of nuts. And what better ones than the acorns from our Acorny Thank You set that we had to say goodbye to today. It and it's coordinating punch will remain in my personal aresenal and thought it paired nicely with some new things out of the catalog that is live today. What better way to present a group of nuts than in a crate from the Wood Crate Framelits. It's just the cutest thing ever! I LOVE this new set of framelits! The tag was also die cut from this set as well, but the words are from the new set, Tabs For Everything. I like the small size of all the words and how you can create different sayings. I stamped the "Nuts About You" acorns to mimic the coffee beans from the inspiration card. Garden Green is typically one of my least used colors, but I absolutely LOVE it paired with the Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky, Whisper White and Crumb Cake. It's takes on a whole new personality! Happy Stamping!

  1. Love how you used both the color combination and the sketch! I am going to miss this stamp set and punch and thinking about keeping it too. Piling the acorns in the new crate is just genius and so cute too!
