Coffee With Friends
Hello and happy Saturday,
For some reason I was awake really early this morning and just could not get back to sleep so I got up around 5:15 am, I think it was. By 8:00 I had two loads of laundry done and also had gone to the grocery store. I guess it's all good because now I have all day to craft, LOL.
I made a couple of cards last night after dinner. Knowing it was day one of Kathy Rac's 30 Day Coloring Challenge, I wanted to make something to play along. Because of work and work travel, I rarely am able to do the entire 30 days. Day one this time is stencils. I have some Concord & 9th Turnabout Stencils that are super fun to use, so I pulled them out and made my cards.
This first one also uses Jen M's sketch from the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge, although I elected to go with a standard card rather than square. This is pretty simple. Using the stencil with four different shades of SU green ink pads, I made the background. The focal image is from the new coffee themed turnabout set also by Concord & 9th because I wanted to make a card for the Fall Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop.
For the inside of the card, I used the turnabout stamp from the coffee set along with some of the other set images.
I'll post the second stencil card in another post. I always forget how fun it is to use stencils and how easy now that I have a set of blending brushes.
Have a super great weekend and thanks for looking in,
