I am so honored to have my post sponsored by CAS-ual Fridays Stamps!  We're giving away a $25 gift code to the CAS-ual Fridays Shop here at my blog!

 
I've created a couple projects using some wonderful CAS-ual Fridays products for today!


I started by cutting a shaped card using the Bubble Box Fri Dies.  I simply folded my paper in half and then with the die just barely off the folded edge, ran it through my Big Shot and... instant shaped card!  Then I used the Bubble Box dies to create my background layers.


Next I cut my cup using one of my very favorite cup dies from some Copic friendly paper, the Coffee Cup Fri Dies ... that wonderful heart handle!  I stamped part of the beautiful fox from the Foxy stamp set onto the cup with Memento Ink and colored it in with my Copics.  I added some liquid glass to the Coffee.  Then I stamped the beautiful flowers and foliage stamps from the Foxy set, colored and fussy cut them.


And finally this perfect sentiment from the Peace, Love and Coffee stamp set on black.  The banner was cut using a die from CDD.  I normally don't attach anything right away so that I can move things around on my base until I'm happy with what I'm seeing and then using various thicknesses of foam tape and other adhesives to attach it all.  I finished it off with some sequins from Paper Sweeties.

With this one, I'm playing along with a challenge over at Double Trouble which is to use Three Colors and a Stamped or Digital Image as well as Brown Sugar Challenge to use Creatures Great and Small!  They're playing together for a couple days yet and you should check them out!!

And my second card:


I cut the base rectangle striped layer with a die from Kat Scrappiness.  Another one of my favorite cup dies is the To Go Cup Fri Die from CAS-ual Fridays!  It's a fantastic size when you want a cup to be the Star of the Show and I cut it and the wrap out strategically from my papers so just what I wanted would show.  You may see I used the Bubble Box Die again to tuck a layer underneath the cup where I'd place my sentiment.


Then I cut a few of the pretty flowers from the Garden Fri Dies... the swirly top layer was cut from some previously watercolored paper and Goldrush cardstock for the bottom part of the flower.  I had some of the pretty leaves that I printed, foiled and watercolored from Graciellie Designs left over on my table and they were just right to tuck in and around my card pieces along with the beautiful flowers.


And then I built my sentiment using the Coffee word die from the Coffee Cup Fri Dies set and that cute sentiment from the Coffee Talk Stamp Set.  Just a few sequins sprinkled around and it was done!  You really do need to check out the huge selection of Coffee and Tea items in the CAS-ual Fridays shop!


It was really hard to stop creating for today because I was so excited and I decided to make a couple more things for you today using items from a few more sponsors as well:


I've used the same papers for all of these projects because I've challenged myself to use up my pad of Prima Amber Moon papers... it's not hard to use it except for that little voice in my head that tells me when it's gone... it's gone!  And then I'll be fighting with myself to not order more...lol!  Here is a list of items I used for this one:

Kat Scrappiness Double Stitched Rectangles; Our Daily Bread Designs Layered Lacey Ovals, Cups & Mugs Dies, Violet Single Stamp, and leaves from the Pretty Posies Dies; Sentiment from Lil' Inker Designs Coffee Talk 2 Stamps and some beautiful leftover autumn leaves that I had cut and watercolored from an SVG file over at the Cutting Cafe.

And, I just had to get this idea out of my head and I have a special Blog Candy giveaway here too!  You may or may not know yet that CLC Super Sponsor Little Acres Creations is closing up shop.  There is a small inventory of some sets left for purchase and right now they are half off with the code Sale50!  Once they're gone... they're gone!  I needed to combine some of my favorite characters from Little Acres on this one:


SO... LOTS of giggling while I created this..lol!  I've used the Coffee Lovin' cow and sentiment from the Moo Brew Set, those cute little Piglets from the Pigments of Imagination (No Longer Available just since I created this!), the sweet mice from Cafe Dreamers, and that adorable Hound from the From The Pack set (Also No Longer Available).  I imagine that this is what my stamp sets do before I get up in the morning...lol!  Like Toy Story... 

I've also used the Kat Scrappiness Double Stitched Rectangles, a window from Memory Box, and those awesome trees from the Craftin Desert Divas Fall Border Dies.  Also, for the cups I used the Mini Cups and Mugs dies from ODBD and that teeny Tiny Cup from Memory Box.

I'll be linking this one up to Double Trouble and Brown Sugar as well through Instagram... and hey Tracey!  There's even a Punny Sentiment for you!

And now... the Blog Candy!  I have for you one Moo Brew stamp set that I will send to one commentor from this post!  That's your second chance to win something here!


So cute, right??  And love the punny sentiments and that awesome Coffee Shop sign!  I sure am going to miss Little Acres... I was so lucky to get to know Chelle and Miko when I stumbled upon that Coffee House Mouse set on Facebook... because that's what it's about right... the relationships we create while we're doing this crazy thing!  So leave me some love and have a chance to win this set.  I'll use the same schedule as Amy for commenting and announcing the winner and if you want me to contact you please be sure to leave me your email address!

EDITED TO ADDThe winner of the Moo Brew stamp set here on my blog is Lucy Evans!  Congrats to Lucy and thanks so much to everyone for stopping by and leaving love!  All of the winners from the CLC prizes have been announced on the CLC blog as well as a document in the Coffee Loving Papercrafter's Facebook Group.  Congrats to all!

Whew!!  Honestly.. it was hard to stop.... all of our CLC sponsors have so many cool and beautiful products, coffee related and not.  When I shop, I usually start at the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog from one of the hops and click from there...lol!

Thank you so much for stopping by today and sticking with me through to the end!  For chances to win all of the prizes offered, be sure to comment at the Coffee Loving Cardmaker's Blog, Sheri's Blog from Gina K Designs, all of the CLC DT stops AND the sponsor stops!  There are prizes everywhere!!

Your next stop along the way is the oh so talented Rubeena Ianigro ... Yes!  The illustrious Ruby is on the Brew Crew and forever a part of the heart of the Coffee Loving Cardmakers!  So head on over there and enjoy!

And again... a special thanks to Michele at CAS-ual Fridays for sponsoring my post!  And don't forget CAS-ual Fridays has a challenge that starts every other Friday.  This time around it's a sketch challenge and you should check it out here!

Karen Letchworth said...

So far on this hop, I've come across three things that I absolutely MUST HAVE, and this CAS-ual Fridays set is one of them. The whole "cup runneth over" thing.....I'm sure you understand. I think one of the best parts about these hops is being able to see what's new everywhere and being inspired to buy new things from these generous companies that support the hops. It's such a treat, and your art is always SO very inspiring to me, Lisa. Hugs to you from Las Vegas.
