another cup o' Joe?


I've written many times about my passion for coffee. And I've even admitted I am a coffee snob. So when I got the chance to play with Ken Brown's Morning Coffee, I simply couldn't resist! Check out the American Art Stamp Blog when you get a chance...there's angelic to zany to be found!

I stamped my Joe on to GP white cs with Memento Rich Cocoa (how about that!) and embossed just Joe with clear ep. The mongo cup is paper pieced with Paper Trey Ink's spring rain. The challenge on the 365 Card Blog is to paper PIERCE. I chose the aroma swirls to pierce. There is a touch of Flair coffee DP, a bit of Basic Grey Periphery, Brazzill linen texture brown. I ran the small PTI spring rain panel through the argyle Cuttlebug ef and used VersaMagic Chalk inks to color. The wonderful epoxied Cup o' Joe is from Creative Imaginations.

I'd love to hear where your coffee loyalties lie! I am on my third home espresso machine. A small price to pay for such JOY in a cuppa....

What a terrific card!

I'm definitely a decaf person (sorry, did I swear????) but LOVE coffee (hate tea) and have a Senseo Machine to give a crema layer on top (have I just redeemed myself????)

I absolutely LOVE that image! Your card is magnificent! I too am a decaf person (Dr. orders) however when I 'buy' coffee I go to the local gas station (that's right!) and mix half decaf w/fv cappuccino, don't laugh it's good and it's cheap. At home I have a Cuisinart coffee maker which I highly recommend--it cost more than Mr. C but it is well worth it.
