Morning Cup and the New Love of My Life

Now, don't panic. I'm not about to change the name of my blog to "Life with a Tassimo." However, if Frank could make me coffee in the morning, he would be perfect. He will stand beside me while my machine does the work, though, so I think he's doing the best he can and deserves credit for his efforts.

Meet my Tassimo. I love it. My Tassimo is a genius. It knows what I want it to fix me in the morning. You see, I put in fresh water and a little coffee pod. My machine reads the pod so it knows if I'm going to want cappuccino, espresso, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, or other drinks! I'm not a huge coffee drinker, but I love cappuccinos and lattes. So, in the picture above, my coffee maker is fixing me an espresso (which is how all lattes and cappuccinos start out.)

Then, it reads the milk pod and steams milk for my drink. Normally, I'd do it in a mug, but for your viewing pleasure, I did it in a glass one.

And there is my rich, frothy cappuccino. I have a wide variety of sugar free coffee syrups so I can make flavored drinks. My favorites have to be Almond Hot Chocolate (soooo goood!) and Almond Cinnamon Cappuccino.
So, in honor of my Tassimo, I have made this card. Although I don't make a lot of tea in it, it is definitely "tea"riffic.
Happy Stamping!

I used the following Stampin' Up products to make this card:
Morning Cup Stamp Set and Sanded Background Stamp
Cherry Cobbler, Baja Breeze, Night of Navy, and Basic Black Classic Inks
Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Baja Breeze, and Not Quite Navy Card Stock
Victoria 5/8" Crochet Trim
(I don't know why it switched to double spacing all of a sudden. Maybe it needs a cappuccino to get going.)

OK, I read your heading and thought "now here is a stamping technique I don't know." Ha. It sounds wonderful except for one thing. I don't like the taste of coffee. I love the smell but can't stand the taste. People have said- try a latte or a frappucino or blah blah. It doesn't change- there is still coffee in it. I do love ice tea but it seems pretty silly for me to buy an expensive thing just to make this. The card is great and definitely celebrates your new love. Hey Frank

I can't drink coffee at all (makes me ill) but love my tea, and have to say from experience, these things make great tea, though the selection of teas is better from keurig than tassimo. Have been thinking of getting one though, for me and for the kids. They like a cup of coffee in the AM but can't be bothered to wait for it. Love the card BTW, makes me want to go make a cup of tea haha!
