Not Enough Coffee

Good morning! Just a quick post today to play along with a couple of challenges. I think this coffee themed card would be a cute way to give a coffee gift card. I know there are a lot of Starbucks fans out there, but I'm a Dunkin' Donuts girl myself, especially iced coffee this time of year. Yumm.


My inspiration is the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, and the Reverse Confetti Sketch for you to Try. Using my Reverse Confetti coffee themed stamps, it was a perfect match, I thought.

Just adding a quick pic of Ollie... he seems to know when I am ready to craft, as he parks himself on my paper bins. And won't move. Note the perfectly good kitty condo next door.

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Be a Barista, Caffeinated Cups (Reverse Confetti)
Card Stock: Early Espresso (Stampin' Up), Neutrals Textured (American Crafts), Cream (SSS)
Patterned Paper: Thankful (Authentique)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Cup O' Joe, Soft Brown, Pumpkin Pie (Hero Arts)
Tools: Big Shot, Caffeinated Cups Dies (Reverse Confetti), Circles Dies (Stampin' Up)
Accessories: Enamel Dots (My Minds Eye)

Thanks for paying me a visit today, and I'd love if you left a comment!

Inky hugs!


  1. Cute card...I like the stamps you used. I smiled too at your cat....it acts like mine do. ;)

  2. Oh my...I remember my working days, and I always dreaded Mondays. Nope, there could never be enough coffee to handle a Monday. I'm so grateful to be retired. Now I can just drink coffee and make cards. LOL What a fun card. Thanks for sharing!

  3. the condo is not a high enough view? hee hee, the card is absolute truth! yesterday was definitely a 2 cup day! Love the colors on your card!

  4. That Ollie is funny! I think all creatures like to be as high up as possible; I know my parrot is the same way. lol Your card is lovely; I love the earthy tones.

  14. Hi Sandy,

    great card, totally fits me today...
    I've had way more coffee than I should but it is still not enough by far...

    By the way, that could totally be one of my cats - if there's a cat label on it, it can't be for them...

    Hugs Ela
