Coffee Hop.. Star Date 6... three days left???!!!!


So Regina Easter, the oh so wonderful owner of The Cutting Cafe' and The Cutting Cafe Shop has a plan.  And this plan involves sometime, in the fairly near future, offering custom made stamps.  So she asked each of us on the Stamp Design Team to make a request.  With the Coffee Hop right around the corner... my mind was on coffee... oh heck.. that's nothing new.  So this is what I requested!  I had seen versions of this saying around on Pinterest but since it was for me... custom... I tweaked it a bit.

Before I go further... I will tell you that the paper is from the Echo Park Spring 6x6 paper pad.. yes!  I know this is the summer hop!!  But the colors are right and really Spring here in the southwest AZ area is much like Summer anyway... so... I used it.  Don't you judge me!


So here it is closer up... what I love about my set is that the I Love You More Than and the But Not Before are separate... so I can just use the first and be Sweet or use them together and be Sassy!  Usually I choose Sassy... but really you never know.  And then I chose three words that I could insert, one of them being Coffee and ... well... you'll just have to wait to see the other two.  I love that coffee is in the block lettering that I can color however I want... it's just the outline... so many possibilities.  And then I can either use the words in both spots or like here I can substitute with a little image. 


For the background on my label I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks and I have to say thank you to SonjaK for the great video and you can watch it here if you'd like on how to make this background.  She was my inspiration for this.  I didn't do all of the distressing she did and I'm no expert for sure, but she did clear a couple things up for me and I think I'll get better at it.  I sponged on the colors and then sprayed with some gold color shine.  I sponged off the excess and it helped because there was no curling of the paper and less wait time to dry.

See .. the above is Sweet!  But with the below... Sassy!


  I stamped this little cup and colored it pink and then added some hand drawn flowers with gold wink of stella... I thought it might give it china cup kind of feel... but don't mistake this for tea.. it's definitely coffee in there.


And did you see this adorable little kitty badge button??  I got this from Lori at ChouxChoux Paper Art's Etsy shop... these are the most adorable little kitties and I chose the colors of this card so I could use one of these on it...lol... so sweet!  And she makes these!!!  Made in the USA people!!! They are awesome!
