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.
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.
