I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Life Is Like A Cup Of Tea

Hi all,

A  fitting sentiment for our lives right now.

I thought I'd play along with the CASology TEA challenge today. I so struggle with CAS cards, but I'm pushing myself to make them periodically. Having a sketch that leads you there really helps too, so for this card I used the current CAS(E) this Sketch! layout. The stamp set is an older Lawn Fawn, but the inks are brand new Rina K Design inks called Electro-pop and, boy-o-boy, are they BRIGHT.

This is a one layer side folding note card. Using the Misti I stamped the tea cup 5 times in a row using various shades of the Rina K inks. The little tea bag was a perfect fit at the end of the row. I added the little smiley face and steam to the 2nd cup, per the sketch and the sentiment, from SSS, underneath. I taped off part of the sentiment and inked up just the top line because that was all I wanted on the front of the card. The rest is here on the inside.

I'm pretty pleased with the CASness inside and out this time.

Have a good Friday and be safe!
