This ATC was made using Elemental Doodles' Coffee Cafe stamp set. I stamped the background and dark brown coffee cup with Marvy Matchables' inks on a piece of paper made from coffee. I bought a coffee paper notepad several years ago in Mexico, and it was perfect for the ATC. I punched three rectangles at the top of the paper and threaded sheer brown ribbon through it and tied it in a knot. Punched the corners and mounted it to a dark brown ATC blank. The corner embellishments which don't show up too well are stickers from Stampendous. The other coffee cup was stamped with Marvy Matchables' Brown ink on a piece of scrap cardstock. I then used a waterbrush over the design and colored in the flower using Copic markers. After cutting it out, I mounted it over the dark brown coffee cup and embellished the center of the flower with another tiny round gold sticker from Stampendous.
Tomorrow I will post another card I made using stamps from A Stamp in the Hand. With any luck at all, I'll be able to take a digital photo of the inside to show how the design was cut and folded.


  1. Oh I am so excited you have a blog and I am loving the coffee cards!!! Hugs to you!

  2. I love all the browns and especially how you softened the top image. I would never think to do that, but may have to give it a try. One day!!!
