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

Warm Wishes

Happy Monday to you all,

While waiting for a 62 page set of instructions to print out for a work project for tomorrow, I'm multitasking to post this card that I made last night after dinner.

While looking for some challenges I ran across Leslie's Inspired By All the Little Things challenge. This week there is a cute table-scape inspiration. I also came across the CAS on Sunday challenge, which is to make a "one layer card."

Here's what I came up with to combine these two challenges:

The card base is SU Naturals card stock. I scored it at 5.5 inches and ran it through the Big Shot using the Mama Elephant Sew Fancy die set to add a bit of interest around the outside of the card front. Using the Lawn Fawn set called Love You a Latte, I stamped the cup, masked it and stamped the saucer, then the spoon. They are watercolored with Zig Real Brush markers and an aqua painter. After the paint was dry, I masked all images and stamped over the whole card front with the SU Hardwood stamp using SU Sahara Sand ink. Using my Mini Misti, I stamped the sentiment, re-stamping a few times to get it nice and dark over the Sahara Sand. A few little blue enamel hearts added for embellishment.

For the inside, I wanted a larger cup, and used Reverse Confetti's Be A Barista set. This cup is colored with Copics. I used the little stitched die from the same Mama Elephant die set.

A simple and quick card to make.

I hope your work week is a good one. As always, thanks for looking,
