Happy Easter!


It's no secret I have a love affair with coffee.  I used to drink so many lattes, I named my blog after that obsession.

Over the last year or so, I've gotten back into stamping since I've been making my Christmas cards and keeping project life album.  Stamps are a quick way to add a little bit extra on a filler card, but not so much that it becomes overwhelming.

I'm also a huge fan of Tim Holtz's work - he does some really incredible things with ink and paper, and his mixed media creations are absolutely out of this world.  When you get the chance, check out the stuff he makes. Seriously.  It's incredible.

Tim has a line of stamps with Stampers Anonymous (and also designs and teaches for Ranger Ink), and my favorites of all of them are the holiday themed ones (the stamp I used on my Christmas cards this year was from one of his sets).  

Until this year, when a set from the blueprint line came out dedicated to coffee.

Yes.  You heard me correctly.  


Naturally, I needed to get my hands on a set.  I mean, hello.  Coffee stamps.  It's an obvious need.

I had a gift card that I somehow never used and found when I was unpacking, which clearly was destiny.  This gift card was meant to be used for these stamps I so desperately needed.  And yesterday, they came in the mail.

I ripped open the package, and ran to my craft table to try them out.  I grabbed PL cards that were relatively plain and could use a little somethin' somethin' and went to work.

You better believe I'm going to be using these stamps on EVERYTHING.
