Coffee Loving Cardmakers + CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Collaboration Hop






Hello and Welcome to the Collaboration Hop for CAS-ual Fridays and Coffee Loving Cardmakers!  You should have arrived here from the Coffee Loving Cardmaker's blog.  If not, you'll want to start at the beginning of the hop which is the CAS-ual Fridays blog.

I have two projects to share with you today so let's get started:


Let's start with my clean + crisp card!  I colored some modeling paste with a dark brown reinker and used a coffee bean stencil that I had in my stash.  I set it aside to dry while I worked on the other elements of my design.


I adore the Coffee Cup Fri-Dies!  Isn't it fun and perfect size to be able to fit a fun sentiment.    The beans sentiment is from the Hot Coffee stamp set.

My next card features the same Coffee Cup Fri-Dies.


I used my Rose Gold embossing powder for the sentiment from the Coffee Talk sentiment set.  I managed to also heat emboss a bit of a splash image from a set in my stash.  I made my own pattern paper by using strips of card stock. Do you see the bit of Rose Gold glitter cardstock?

My card was inspired by CFC210:




and the CAS18 Challenge:


Next up on the hop is Erin!  If you get lost along the way, here's the complete hop listing!

Remember to leave comments along the way to win one of three $25 Gift Certificates to CAS-ual Friday Stamps!  Commenting to close on Friday, October 26, 2018 at 11:55 pm pacific.  Winners to be posted on the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps + Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog on Saturday, October 27th.
