Michael Strong COFFEE Blog Hop

Today I am part of the Michael Strong COFFEE Blog Hop.
Welcome to all of you who came over from
or those of you who start here. It doesn't matter were you
start for this is a circular blog hop.
Here is my card for you with the wonderful
coffe cups by Michael Strong.

and of course I have a tutorial for you.
How do you stack those cups as seen on the card?

Well, this is what you need:
your MS coffee cup stamp
masking tape
post-it notes
and this is what you do:
1. place masking tape over the top of the cup
2. Ink up your stamp with black ink.

3. Take of the masking tape and

4. stamp the image on your card.
5. Stamp the cup on a post-it note.
6. Cut it out and cut the top of and cover your stamped image.
7. Ink up your stamp again and stamp over the post it note.

8. It looks like this now. Take of the post-it note and
9. you have some perfect stacked coffee cups.

The cups are colered with pencils and
 the beans are glazed with glossy accent.
The sentiments on the card are digital designs by
 Create with TLC,
They have a perfect set of coffee sentiments for your coffee cards.

And this is the inside of the card:

Hope I have inspired you to take another look at your coffe cups.
Need some more inspiration?
