Coffee Talk


I love coffee…hot coffee, iced coffee, coffee ice cream, coffee in the morning, coffee after dinner…Coffee=leisure and relaxation. A “cuppa” coffee, a good book and curled up in my favorite chair? Ahhhhh!

My youngest son painted this when he was in junior high. I LOVE it and and it hangs in my kitchen!


His art inspired mine.

JFF Rubber Stamps Coffee Sign and Single Coffee Bean
CUTplorations ATC die.

I tried a “new to me” technique. I colored the the stamp with some of Faber Castell’s Big Brush Markers, huffed on it to remoisten and stamped on kraft card stock. I’ve tried this before with watercolor pencils and misting with water, but never markers. I wanted a clean stamped image and this effect was exactly what I wanted. I like how the distressed red paper soaked up the ink on the coffee bean image and blurred the edges!

The new JFF Rubber Stamps monthly challenge is to use a die cut.

  1. Hi Wendy,
    I’m with you on the love of coffee! I even have a mocha cheesecake recipe that I make for any occasion that warrants it – like a Tuesday. HAHA! I love your son’s picture as well, and your card with the coffee beans is great. ~smile~ Roseanne
