always time for coffee...

Hello!!  Lisa and I are continuing out little challenge revolving around CASology. This week the cue word is coffee.  While I'm not a coffee drinker I do have several coffee related stamp sets.  I pulled out an old one from Whimsy Stamps called Coffee Break.  This set also has matching dies that include a little to go cup, wrapper and lid.  I used the color combo from this week's Color Throwdown, as well as the layout from Freshly Made Sketches.  I die cut the main cup from the blue/green cardstock and the wrapper and lid from cream.  The sentiment was stamped in dark brown ink (looks almost black really!) on the wrapper and then everything was adhered to the cup. A panel of cream cardstock was die cut and then I used a strip of red houndstooth washi tape to bring in the red and  added a thin strip in a neutral color.   Finished by adhering the panel to a dark brown cardstock base. 





Hope you have a wonderful day!! Make sure you stop by Lisa's blog to check out what she made for the challenge.  I know it will not only be clean and simple but also super clever!!


Supplies:  Cardstock:  SU! Chocolate Chip, PTI Ocean Tides and Vintage Cream; Stamps:  Whimsy Stamps; Dies:  AJVD and Whimsy Stamps; Inks:  SU!; Washi tape:  SU!
