Never underestimate...


TGIF!

Hello and Happy Friday!

For those of you that have been following me, know that I love my coffee:


This may look like an ordinary tag but let me share some deets!

The kraft base is upcycled packaging!
The PTI fillable frame panel is upcycled from PTI paper packaging.

Here they are x5:


Each of the coffee cozies have been stamped with Fresh Ink Pumpkin on PTI Aqua Mist.  The sentiments are stamped in memento rich cocoa and Fresh Ink Island.

I'm a huge fan of non-traditional holiday colors.  I'm also a huge fan of gift cards, quite frankly giving and receiving.

These tags will accompany coffee gift cards this holiday season.

See the  Latte Love border of stacking cups?  I was originally going to only stamp it once but when I realized it needed to be stamped twice I went ahead and masked off the original image.  Why?   ...because the upcycled cardboard really only accommodated the 5 tags and with my luck, I would have a stamping oopsie  and be outta luck, chuck.


I super love the look of kraft and white ink...add the pop of the fresh orange and aqua color combo...it makes me a happy crafter.

The twine that I'm using with the tags is by Timeless Twine, called Aqua Blue.  All Spools of twine are on sale this week for only $6!

If you haven't guessed it yet, I'm linking up to this month's PTI Blog Hop:



I used the following PTI supplies:

Fillable Frames #1
Heart-2-Heart #1
Latte Love
Aqua Mist cardstock
Tag Sale #5

I'm also playing along with the Fusion Card Challenge #20:


One of my FAV color combos!

Looking forward to hopping around with those of you that link up over at PTI!

These are AWESOME! I used recycled boxes to cut most of my tag bases. I am playing around with some jar lids for tags this year too. So fun to use things on hand!
