ATC - Love You a Latte

Hello, everybody! It's Day 2 of the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and I will have a few coffee-themed projects to share today!  I'll share them in separate blog posts.

The first is an ATC, or artist trading card, measuring 2.5" x 3.5". ATCs are great to include in happy mail, and I also enjoy putting together nine of them to make a pocket letter.  If all goes well, then I should be able to share a completed coffee-themed pocket letter before the hop is over!  If you're curious about ATCs, you can read more about them here.

The stamp I used is a wood-mounted rubber stamp from Craftsmart which I received in a prize (thank you, Christina!). The sentiment and coffee cup are both on the same stamp.  I stamped on different scraps of cardstock for a colour-blocking style.  I doodled some faux stitching around the sentiment and added some punched flowers, a tiny punched kitty, two die-cut leaves, and a tiny gem.

I would also like to support the following challenges:
A Gem of a Challenge Three of Something (3 coffee cups) UE
ATC Around the World AG 1/3
Crafter's Castle AG Optional Share a Technique (colour blocking) 2/3 C10
Creative Fingers AG 2/3

Thank you for looking at my ATC! Wishing you a joyful day!

Adorable ATc, I love making them too, just entered a challenge with a trio I made for fun. I never thought of making them to tuck in with happy mail, or making them for a pocket card. Awesome.

Oh, how cute!! Love the color blocking and that little tiny punched kitty!! It must be so tiny as ATC's are not very large. Thanks for playing with The House That Stamps Built.
