Friendship Cards, Fun Cards

good morning, gorgeous

Good morning and happy Sunday!

Today’s card is created for this week’s CAS Colours and Sketches challenge #295 and also for my entry for their second part of the DT call. This week’s is a sketch challenge. I used Hero Arts, My Monthly August Card Kit and Foam Animals Stamps Set for today’s card.


I stamped the coffee cup and saucer with a Copic friendly ink, Hero Arts, Intense Black on a piece of Neenah White card-stock and colored with Copic Markers (W1, 2 and 4 and E13 and 34). After it completely dried, I stamped the coffee art with VersaMark ink and heat-embossed it with Hero Arts’ white puffy embossing powder. I fussy cut the image out and put it aside.

I stamped the sentiment, “good morning, gorgeous”, with VersaFine Onyx Black ink onto a piece of pattern paper measured 2.50″ by 3.75″ and I also cut another piece of Neenah Kraft card-stock, measured 2.75″ by 3.75″, to have a layer look.

Next, I stamped the coffee beans from Simon Says Stamp’s Coffee Break stamp set with Gina K Designs’ Dark Chocolate ink onto my Bazzill, Butter Mints A2 card base. I stamped the coffee beans in three rows toward the bottom of the card base. To finish the card, I glued the coffee cup and the saucer onto the card panel and then adhered the card panel onto my A2 card base.


I hope you like the card. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!
