My apologies to you, Marianne M, for CASEing a card you sent me. Mine isn't as elaborate as yours and is not a true CASE, but I loved the idea!
The stamps I used were from the Elemental Doodles Coffee Cafe set. The instructions for this card are:
Terra Cotta CS base
Ivory CS cut a bit smaller than base and corner punched inked with Marvy Matchables Terra Cotta
Stamp on background was inked with Adirondak's Hazelnut
Layers on coffee cup are patterned paper, ivory CS and burgundy CS
Stamps on coffee cup were inked with Dark Brown Marvy Matchables
Different colors of CS were cut into triangles, mounted on beige CS to resemble steam, and then mounted on burgundy CS.
Multicolored eyelash fibers were used as an embellishment.
And now a word from the sponsor!
If you would like to see a sneak preview of the new Elemental Doodles' stamps which will be available in June, go to: These stamps can be pre-ordered after June 1st and should be available for shipping by June 15th. If you go to their web site and sign up for the newletter at:, you will receive a larger discount than the one that will be offered to the general public.
I'm excited to be receiving new stamps to play with, and I like the design of the sets. Having sayings associated with stamp sets is always nice, and I also like the fact that there are solid and outline stamps. If one doesn't work ... the other one will!
Have a great day, and thank you for reading my shameless commercial.
