Julie Ebersole's 'How Ya Bean' card inspired me to break out some of the huge number of coffee stamps I've been amassing. The first card is almost a direct CASE of her card in the March/April 2009 edition of Paper Crafts:
Stamps: GinaK's 'My Cuppa Joe'. Cardstock: GP110 white, kraft, Chocolate Chip, DPfrom unknown source. Ink: Memento black, Chocolate Chip, Copic Warm Grey 03, SU Bashful Blue. Accessories: Crimper, Stardust glitter pen, black gingham ribbon.
The second card is a little more my own version, using the coffee pot and a larger sentiment:
Stamps: GinaK's 'My Cuppa Joe', Impression Obsession 'What's Brewing'. Cardstock: GP110 white, kraft, Chocolate Chip, DP from unknown source. Ink: Memento black, Chocolate Chip, Copics. Accessories: Crimper, Crystal Effects, black gingham ribbon.
Didn't that coffee pot turn out fun? I used Crystal Effects to give it a more glass-like appearance.
These cards were quick and easy to make, so I ended up creating two of each design. I figure I can tie them together with a big chocolate satin bow, add a bag of chocolate-covered coffee beans for a fellow-coffee lover's gift. It might even help us forget about our missing coffee shop for a while!
