A Great Cup of Coffee

Bev (beestamper) from my Doubledog Dare Challenge (DDC) group challenged us to make a non-challenge card.  I never was very good at math but wouldn't this challenge make this a challenge card thereby cancelling the non-challenge?  LOL!  I'm just pickin' on ya, Bev! 


Anywhooo, I've been anxious to ink up my coffee-themed stamps by Rubbernecker. Isn't that coffee bean background stamp a cool idea for us coffee lovers? I used the polished stone technique on the background and then stamped the coffee beans over that. I used Copic markers to color my coffee pot and mug.



I like to finish off the inside of my cards as much as possible.  For this one, I kept it simple.  I black embossed the coffee pot inchie and also tag punched the corners to coordinate with the outside of the card.

If you'd like to play along with us, just be sure to use keyword DDC when uploading to Splitcoaststampers!

Oh goodness - we used to have a coffee pot just like that, only red. Come to think of it, maybe we still do! I love the look of the coffee bean background. If I weren't saving for a fast camera lens I'd be off faster than you could grind the beans for a cup of coffee to check it out. The colours and angles make this a good guy card, too.

I was thinking that same exact thing Charlene - that once you took it on as a challenge it couldn't be not for a challenge - but then I got lost -------

Love this coffee card - great colors and DP!!

the 2nd half of the challenge was to send it annonymously to someone in the mail... did you miss that part?!?!? LOL!@!!!
