Coffee Cup Thank You Notes


Being in an artsy-fartsy mood lately and having a need for some thank you cards, I spent the afternoon in my studio creating some coffee-themed cards.  I really didn't have a design in mind when I started, but one came together quickly once I got several sheets of plain and patterned scrapbooking paper pulled from my stash.

Several years before there was even a daydream of a vintage trailer, I was making an altered book with a coffee theme. Because of that, I had all the right colors of paper, lots of rubber stamps, and even a bunch of stamps I designed and carved myself. 

PUNCHED PAPER, MESSAGES & ACCENT STRIPS READY

FOUR NEAT RUBBER COFFEE STAMPS
ANOTHER TRIO OF RUBBER STAMPS 
COFFEE-THEMED STAMPS IN MY COLLECTION
2002 STAMPIN' UP SET

Rubber stamps can be pricy, so I decided at some point to make my own and it wasn't as difficult as you might imagine.  I made a dozen or so and they turned out quite well I think.

COFFEE AND TWO MUGS

After about an hour of stamping messages, punching out shapes, cutting paper stock, and taping everything together, I now have a supply of thank you notes ready to pop in the mail!

Thanks a latte for dropping by again today to share a bit of my Java Journey and remember . . .
