java a great day...

Hello!!  Squeezed in some time today to make a card for this week's CASology challenge, as well as the current (and last... boo hoo!) Seize the Sketch challenge.   When I saw this week's cue word I just had to play along.  I'm not a coffee drink (my elixir of choice is a tall soy Chai from Starbucks), but I do happen to have some cute coffee inspired stamps (and dies) from Clearly Whimsy Stamps. 


I happen to still have out my BasicGrey Highline 6x6 pad and some I used some papers from that pad to make my little "to go" coffee cups.  After die cutting all the pieces I adhered them together.  Adding the heart to one cup and the sentiment to the other.  I stamped a little heart up in one corner and then adhered the cups to my cardstock piece that I die cut with my brand spanking new Dotted Dies set from Avery Elle.  I absolutely love the look of this perfectly cut panel!!  Since this is a pretty clean and simple design I'm going to also post this card to the current Addicted to Stamps and More challenge:  CAS.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps:  Clearly Whimsy Stamps Coffee Break; Dies:  Clearly Whimsy Stamps and Avery Elle; Ink:  Memento Rich Cocoa & Tangelo; Patterned Paper:  BG Highline
