I love coffee!

I am a coffee freak! I love to drink it, smell it, and I love to collect coffee stamp sets. I even have a rubber stamp of the Starbuck's logo.

Well, when I first saw the inspiration picture for Becky's challenge (see this post), it made me feel warm and fuzzy because the apron reminded me of a mother's comforting arms. That made me think of what makes me feel warm and fuzzy and gives me comfort every day...COFFEE!

So, I made another card for Becky's challenge using the Warm Happiness set. The white strip was stamped with the BB: Retro. I love those circles! Don't they look like the Target emblem? The sentiment is from the Verve stamp set Delightful and Delicious. That sentiment so applies to me!

Here's a close-up of the coffee steam. I wanted it to look like it was actually floating on air so I stamped the steam image on a piece of acrylic sheet with black Staz-On and cut it out. Then, I stamped the coffee cup on white cardstock, cut it out, and taped the acrylic piece to the back of it. I used dimensional tape to prop it up. I picked these buttons because they looked like the Target circles.
I thought I'd try taking pictures from a different view just for fun.

I had cut out an extra image of the cup, so I decided to use it for the inside.  

Thanks for visiting. Happy stamping!
