Celebrate Coffee with a Sampler!

Who loves coffee?  And donuts!  

The other day my girlfriend confessed to me that a piece on her Snowhaven sampler was lost.  "Want a snowflake to replace the missing snowflake?"  "How about a coffee cup instead?"  Done!

But I wasn't really done.  I've had a coffee themed sampler kicking around in the back of my mind for almost 2 years.  I decided to find my Cricut Design Space Files and give it another go.  
Now with the new Sugar Rush paper pack that's in the Jan - April Seasonal Expressions, I thought that coffee and donuts would be a sweet combo and it was!  

I used the January 2017 Stamp of the month "Adore You."  The heart and the phrase "you make me happy" were perfect for coffee.  Until I've had my coffee, I'm not ready to deal with the world with a happy mood.  

Some of the background squares are debossed with swirls.  Debossing is the same as embossing but you flip the piece over so most of the paper is raised and the design is lower in the paper.  I sanded it with our distressing kit to tone down the brightness and bring out the swirls.

Here's the words I've created for the sampler.  You can use any combination. 

To make this sampler on your own you need the following
3D Foam Tape
Clear Shimmer Brush (for steam and whipped cream)

This sampler uses the CTMH Artistry Cricut Bundle and Cricut Alphabet (free in Design Space).  My sampler shows a flower from Create A Critter but I've replaced it with one from Artistry in the file.
