Coffee, Coffee, Coffee!

If you are a fellow stamper, then you are probably like me in several ways. You like paper, and you have a lot of it. You like  ribbon, and you probably have a lot of it. You like embellishments, and you have a lot of them.  And you like (or love!) stamps, and you have a lot of them,  you follow blogs -- blogs of friends, blogs of folks you have never met and probably will not ever meet, you follow stamp company blogs, and you have a Pinterest account to get ideas for your cards.  I admit to all of the above.  And I do follow blogs - and there are quite a few,  I not only look through Pinterest for card ideas - I have a Pinterest account.

I get ideas for cards from many places - doctor's offices, bookstores, grocery stores, bill boards, magazines, clothing, Pinterest, Splitcoast Stampers, and from blogs of other people.  Some blogs are written by demonstrators for various companies, and some blogs are written by ordinary folks who just love to stamp.    While I own a lot of stamps, I do not own all of the stamps available on the market.  Therefore I seldom have the exact same  stamp(s) that a blog author will use.  But I get card ideas from the layouts or the design of the card.

Th card I will show you today is the result of  a card I saw on a blog.   I am not telling you the name of the blog author -- because I did not CASE the card -- I only was inspired by the lay out.


I used stamps from the Technique Junkie  Stamps Coffee Quotes set http://techniquejunkies.com/coffee-quotes/   to make my card. It is a Technique Stamp set. The coffee pot and the cups were all colored in Copic markers.

I know plenty of people who believe in drinking coffee -- and lots of it!

Have a great inky day!

So glad to see the use of coffee stamps other than the usual Starbucks paper coffee cup! I have several old-school stamps of perculators and coffee grinders. Guess they are all vintage now. Great card, Judy. xoxo

Love all the design papers and colors you used, the die-cut. The coffee pot reminds me of the first electric pot we had, and now our most current a k-cup coffee makers.
