are a stamp that came as a freebie
with a stamp magazine. 
First I stamped the steam on the background.
The cups are stamped on the kraft paper and 
embossed with brown embossing powder.

holds them together and tapes them to

the inside pages. The papers I used are from
a Tim Holtz paper block.
When the enveloppes were finished I colored
them with walnut stain ink.

All sides were colored with the ink.

The 4 x 4 inch hardboard covers are decorated
with torn strips of the same paper I used for
the enveloppes.

When the ouside was finished with the torn paper
I covered the inside with a square piece of
3,5x 3,5 inch of Tim Holtz paper.

Front and back and 3 enveloppes.

The book is put together with the zutter
and a metal ring.
Her you see it from above holding the enveloppes.

The rings are in black and it has a vintage look.

This is the front of the book. I found some vintage pictures
on my computer and printed these to make some atc's with.
Besides the picture I used the Michael Strong mini coffee
cup, sentiment by Your Next Stamp, tea bag die by
Stampin'Up! and rectange wave die from my stash.

Card Captain day 5: Coffee

Welcome to the last day of me being the card captain
on the Enjoy Michael Strong Stamp group.
Did you think when is the coffee card coming?
Well, I waited until the last day!

You find Michael Strong's coffee stamp here.

I enter my card for the color and sketch challenge

So I started this card bij stamping the coffee steam
with versamark ink and embossed this with white
embossing powder.

You can see the steam white on white.
With salty ocean distress oxide ink and a blending
tool i colored all of the background. When finished
I took a paper towel to rub of the ink of the steam.

Then with blueprint sketch I stamped the steam again
on top of the lighter blue background.

The sentiment  by Your Next Stamp (from a set that is 
not available anymore, but with wonderful sentiments) 
is stamped with versifine ink. YNS has many other 
wonderful coffee stamps that you can find HERE.

With washi tape I marked the lines as in the sketch.

And here are the mini coffee cups. Stamped on blue 
paper and embossed in white.

After cutting them out, I added them to the card,
each with a little pearl on top.
I also want to let you know that soon there is another
coffee blog hop again with lots of wonderful prizes.
