You're Cool Beans!

Hello friends! I've got a little project using one of my most favorite LOTV stamps to share today. I needed a little gift set for a good friend who loves coffee almost as much as I do, so I decided to make up this cute little K-cup gift box with a matching card. 

I went with a monochromatic color scheme using many different shades of browns and creams, just like a creamy hot cup of good coffee! I colored the little cuties from 'Coffee Break' with my Copics and a little colored pencil for additional shading and detail. 

I stamped my own background papers so I could coordinate everything the way I wanted. The little K-cup gift caddy is from a tutorial I found on The Cat's Pajamas web site. 

I added little circle seals to the tops of each K-cup that says 'You're cool beans!' How cute is that! I think my friend will get a chuckle out of it, and enjoy my favorite coffee as well. 

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
