Finally, My New Stamp Set

Well, here it is, my new stamp set, bought specifically for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  I think the stamp set is just new to me, and not NEW NEW.  It is a great one though from Skipping Stones Design.  I got another stamp set from them at the same time………..cause hey that is how I roll………………….always trying to make the shipping per item less $$.  It is a great one too, and I already have a certain person’s Birthday card in mind for that one.  But I digress……..

What attracted me to this coffee stamp set is the fact that it had exactly me and my Craft uniform as the main image.  Really…………………hair askew, one of 3 ratty blue bathrobes on and my bunny slippers.  This is the uniform I wear when I craft.  The challenge I tell myself is to get dressed before the mailman arrives at 1:00 pm.  This is a challenge I have failed at, .. many times.  The mailman rings my doorbell every time I get a little stamp parcel.  I think he likes to see me dance around (dressed , of course), when I get Happy Mail, but he could do without the ratty housecoat.

I decided to watercolour this card as that seemed to evoke the same disheveled look as the coffee loving crafter on the front of the card.  I think it turned out well.


Supplies:  Skipping Stones Design Coffee set,  Peerless Watercolors, Distress Watercolor Paper, Creatology fun foam, Simon Says Stamp card base ,  Pico Embellisher in Black, Mama Elephant creative cuts die, and Scor tape.
