Java Minute?

Anyone who knows me at all, knows I love coffee, and I love stamping.  So it stands to reason that I love coffee themed stamps.  I also like puns. 

So these stamps are very ME!  They are by KK Originals at Rubbernecker Stamp Company.

I also like the retro feel of the cup and the scalloped paper. It reminded me of a 1930's era kitchen.  So I added the buttons and the bias tape (reminds me of one of my grandma's aprons).  I wish I remembered the name of the manufacturer of the scalloped paper (if you know--please share).

I stamped the cup and the sentiment with Fluid Chalk Ink by Clearsnap.  It works GREAT with colored pencils (and watercolors, too) and gives a nice matte finish to the image.  These are some of my favorite inks to use.  They stamp great on non-porous surfaces, cloth, as well as on paper--and, hey, they are on sale, too at Rubbernecker.

Thanks for stopping by--I hope you are having a great holiday weekend!
