Java Time

This is a fabulous stamp set for your favorite coffee-teer.  But in my case, I used it for our church cafe!

As a funraiser, we are selling homemade cards with the proceeds to go to the cafe, so we can con't to provide free coffee and treats before service.

The easel card and pringles can are perfect for setting on the counter. And the cafe colors are purple plum, black, white and silver.

To get the stamps to show up nicely on the black cardstock, I went ahead and used white embossing powder and embossed all the images. 

See you tomorrow for our next featured stamp set!
