CAS-ual Fridays and the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop-Day 5

Good morning! The Spring/Summer 2019 Coffee Lover's Blog Hop is still going strong and CAS-ual Fridays is a Super Sponsor once again!  Just create something new using a Coffee, Tea or Cocoa and Spring/Summer theme (i.e. no Santa, snowflakes, Fall leaves or Halloween...lol!) and link it up for your chance to win prizes!  You can create as many new projects as you like as long as they follow the themes!

We're celebrating over at CAS-ual Fridays and all week we're featuring some of the awesome Caffeinated Beverage themed images and dies in the CFS shop here!  And guess what!  You can get those items on sale right now!  No code needed... they're all 20% off!  At the end of this post I'll tell you how you can save even more!

Here's how I was inspired:


Remember last time I made two backgrounds using the Starlequin Stencil and only used one?  Well, this time around I decided it was time to get the other one on a card!  I've used it today since it has such a bright and springy feeling.


I have a lot of Coffee Cup dies in my crafty collection, but this Coffee Cup Fri-Die is by far one of my very favorites!  I just love the size of it and that so sweet heart shaped handle!!  I also love that the coffee cuts out separately so I can color it easily in a coffee (or tea or cocoa) color.

I stamped that awesome sentiment from the Cup of Coffee stamp set onto the cup in Versamark and heat embossed it in green.  Then I die cut the leaves from the Garden Fri-Dies from some previously watercolored paper and added them and some pre-made paper flowers around the cup.


I added the breathe die from the Just Breathe Fri-Dies in similar colors so that you'd see it, but it wouldn't be the focus... just a very quiet reminder to a friend that's going through a rough patch to take a few moments and just be... it's not quite an eclipse, but we'll touch on those the next time!


And there you have it!  A few sequins as steam and it's ready to pop in the mail.  When's the last time you actually mailed a card you made?  I'm a slow mailer and it's a struggle to get to a post office, but I love to send out my cards and will head there this week!  I'm challenging you to get a few out in the mail this week too!  And I'm challenging you to create something Coffee, Tea or Cocoa and link it up over at the Coffee Hop!

I'm also playing along with Double Trouble... their challenge is Spring and if you also create something with Coffee, Tea, or Cocoa, you can link up to the Coffee Hop as well AND also to Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenges where the theme is Food and/or Drink!  Link up to all three and at Double Trouble you get extra chances to win!

If I've inspired you today and you decide there is something you need to have, you can use this to get a discount on both sale and regular priced products.  Just use this code to get an extra 15% off!  And you don't have to use mine... all of the Girls Friday have one and you can use the code for who inspires you!


Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you'll take a moment to have a cup of whatever makes you happy and Just Breathe!

Another stunning background using the stencil. Your techniques amaze me. Can I come and learn from you? That would be awesome. Another stunner, Lisa.
TFS!

I love mailing cards! Even ones with a bit of dimension (costs more, but that's ok). I just add a piece of bubble wrap. So far so good.
I love this yummy card!! That BG is just beautiful. And I love that cup, too. I just bought it and just cut one out earlier to use ...
