"Espressing My Thanks"


I seem to give Starbucks gift cards more than any other type of gift cards. I got this Starbucks stamp a couple years ago. I use it when I give the gift cards, I like to make a matching card. I don't know why but I have never taken a picture of the cards I have made with it. This time I thought I would. The stamp is made by Viva Las Vegastamps. It isn't the actual Starbucks image. It is a slight oval and not a perfect circle. But it is close enough that no one would know. It is a solid stamp so I have to stamp it in the green and take my markers and color the black. I don't think I did this one right but you get the idea. I think I should have left some green in the middle. I also used the retired coffee set, Espress Yourself as well. I really like this set and wish it never retired. I NEVER use Garden Green either. This is the only time. I just don't like that color. LOL But it is the Starbucks color so I use it when I make these cards.
