Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers Challenge 67 - C is for Caffeine

It's time for the new challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers  and today Edna is buzzing, because the topic she has chosen for us is C is for Caffeine.

Being more of a tea drinker myself, I don't have much in the way of coffee related stash, in fact until the recent craft day in Frimley I had none at all, but luckily the goody bag we were given on the day included a coffee-bean stencil. I stamped the words using individual letters from the stamps I am "looking after" for my daughter, scribbled round them with a coffee coloured pencil and cut them out.

If you are in the UK, the colour scheme is probably self explanatory, but for those who live elsewhere here's why I chose it. There is a chain of coffee shops called Costa which has a branch on practically every high street, and their crimson cardboard cups are an important part of many people's day. So this card is a tribute to all of my friends whose journeys are planned around where they can find the next branch of Costa.


  1. Awesome stencil-and you got the Costa color perfectly! Great card.

  2. Love that coffee bean stencil!!
    Fab project for the challenge sistah!

  3. A brilliant card Jane, great design.

  4. Fabulous card, Jane, and love that cool stencil!

  5. Fabulous great use of the stencil and and the explanation of Costa coffee and I even know what High street means lol.

  6. Costa sounds like the Canadian equivalent of Tim Hortons! The colours are even similar. For a lack of coffee supplies, you did an awesome job with this card, so fun! (Tea drinkers unite!)

  7. love the sentiment.. suits a lot of people i know.
