National Coffee Day!

Yesterday was National Coffee Day!!! I didn't even know that such a day existed because for me, every day is coffee day!!! Yes, it's true. My name is Kathi and I'm a coffeeholic.

Anyway, I was chatting with Shannon, the lovely lady behind Bombshell Stamps. She said she needed some coffee and I remarked that I always needed a cup. Then I had a brilliant idea! Shannon should take the Party Pin-up from the Man's Ruin set, stick it into a coffee cup, and make it into a stamp for the caffeine junkies out there.

So, I decided to act on that idea and this is what I created!

I stamped the Party Pin-up from the Man's Ruin set, colored her with Copic markers, and cut her out.

I went through my stamp drawers and found this wonderful, if underused, Mocha stamp from Ann-ticipations. I masked the whipped cream and cinnamon stick from the top of the stamp with removable Scotch Tape (could not stamp without stuff), stamped the coffee cup, and colored it with Copic markers.

The Party Pin-up was positioned and I added a sentiment from a great coffee set by Rubbernecker Stamps.

The patterned cardstock is seriously old KMA that I layered. I added some not-quite-as-old Prima flowers and a bunch of Recollections blue pearls.

This card qualifies for the "Mostly Blue" challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers!

Thanks for visiting today!
