CCC #28... a cup of thanks

Hello friends!!  Tuesday has rolled around once, again, and that means time for a brand new CASology challenge!!  Love, love, love seeing all the fabulous entries each week!   This week the cue word is "drink"!   So many fun directions you can go in with that cue word for sure.   Our guest designer this week is the amazingly talented Heather Telford!!



A few weeks ago the Less is More challenge had "drink" as it's challenge theme and I seriously struggled trying to come up with an idea.  I'm telling you this because I had the same struggle with this word, again!!   I was ready to use the same stamp set that I had used for my LIM card when I decided to rummage through my stamps and see if I could come up with something else.  Found a little stamp in a SU! set I have that features three little hot drinks, but after trying a couple of things using that stamp it just wasn't working for me.  Then I remembered my newly acquired MFT ALM "Your My Cup of Tea".   I decided to use that and do some spotlight paper piecing.   The papers I used are from the BasicGrey Serendipity 6x6 pad.  I matted the image with some kraft cardstock.  I wanted to show that you can take a rather large image and keep it CAS by spotlighting a portion of the image.

Thanks for stopping by.... make sure you check out the cards from the rest of the design team: Melissa, Tracey, Jen, Ardyth, Judy, Maureen, Meghan and this week's guest designer, May. Can't wait to see what you come up with using this week's cue word!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white & kraft; Stamps:  My Favorite Things ALM; Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black & SU! Pear Pizzazz; PP:  BasicGrey

Love this!

Your spotlight paper piecing is genius! I would normally shy away from an image like that because I wouldn't know how to colour it but this is the perfect solution! Love the paper you used for it too!

Meghan said...

I love those stamps by MFT! This one is perfect for the cue card and your paper pieced mug is perfect. I do believe I see Red Velvet Cake tea in that cup!
