[9.29.2014] happy national coffee day!!!

Coffee and stamps…

Two of my favorite combinations.  Throw a doughnut in and you have totally made my day.  I’m excited to join in on a HUGE and fabulous blog hop today.  Some sweet crafty friends have engineered this event for the love of coffee and stamps.  All the details can be found at Chaitali’s blog.  I’m just one of many, so going to try to keep this short and sweet.

I’m using some Unity Stamp Company stamps this week.  The coffee stamp I’m using is the Coffee Side by Side itty bitty.

Plus a few others mixed in.


My favorite coffee place is a local shop called The Coffee Rush.  I would visit every day, but sadly it is so far, far away.  So, my second favorite spot is Starbucks.  As you are probably aware, Starbucks are on almost every corner.  I’ll usually visit mine before my early morning shifts for a Venti Iced coffee with sugar free caramel and cream (during the HOT AZ summer) or a Venti Blonde roast with sugar free caramel and cream (during the cooler months).  In honor of my SB addiction, I singled out that little “to go” cup of coffee from the stamp to use on my cards for today.

I liked the ombre effect of the patterned paper and mimicked it in the coloring of my cups.  Then, I just added the perfect birthday bubble with a heart, cuz I love coffee and the birthday girl.


I have a little treat, this cutie fox is sneak peek.  She is part of the Stamp of the Week program at Unity and will be arriving in subscriber’s mailboxes the week of October 5th.  If you want her to arrive in YOUR mailbox, you have plenty of time to sign up.

When, I stamped a bunch of coffee cups for my first card, I had one or two extra.  Not one to waste a single drop of coffee, I decided to pair one with my sweet fox .  It is the perfect color and combination for a birthday Starbucks gift.

That is all from me today.  Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by for a cup of coffee and some card inspiration.  There are some AMAZING sponsors for this event.  Check it out.

Head back to Chaitali’s blog to visit the next blog in line.

Thanks a LATTE for visiting and hope you enjoy the hop.  Wishing you the perfect cuppa day.
