Today is a Good (coffee) Day!

Just popping in with a quick post to share the coffee card I made a couple weeks ago with the Tim Holtz exclusive STAMPtember set.  I was thrilled with how this one turned out.


For this card I stamped the image on Bristol paper and colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens.  I also stamped it in Lawn Fawn Walnut ink onto a die cut kraft card stock rectangle.  I tried out my copic airbrush system for the first time and airbrushed a brown around the edges of the image.  I thought I would give this a method a try versus trying to achieve the look with distress inks.  I think the fade out to the kraft card stock worked much better this way.


I stamped some coffee beans in Doe ink using a stamp from Lawn Fawn's Love you a Latte set. I stamped them on the kraft panel as well as the Natural card stock base in such a way that they looked scattered around the image and not like pattern paper. I fussy cut out the cup with straw and label and popped it up with thin foam squares over the image stamped on the background panel.  I finished it off by matting the panel with dark brown burlap for some fun texture.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I'm getting my craft room finally set up so soon I will be able to share pictures!



  1. Gorgeous! Love the airbrush look and those fun coffee beans. Awesome always!!

  2. This is such a striking card, that airbrush system rocks! Love the way you spread the coffee beans over the panel and base of the card!


Thanks for taking the time to brighten my day and leave a comment! I hope your day is bright too :)
