Day 3 Sneak Peek for CAS-ual Fridays Stamps-"Time for Coffee" and "Hot Coffee" Stamp Sets

Hello everyone!! I hope you all are recovered from the holidays. I am back to work, wondering how my vacation went by so fast.

Today I am giving you another sneak peek to the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps release. Today I made a card using the new stamp sets "Time for Coffee" and "Hot Coffee."

For my first card I used the new stamp set "Time for Coffee" and "Coffee Cup Fri-dies," along with two of my favorite Fri-die sets "Tag Buddies" and "Fun-Fetti." (I seem to use the Fun-Fetti dies on EVERYTHING lately.)

I started off by inking a piece of 4" by 5 1/4" piece of white cardstock with blue ink. I then used red ink to randomly stamp the clock from "Time for Coffee" across the inked paper. To finish off the background, I flicked white, brown and red mist across the cardstock.

When the mist dried I adhered it over a blue, A2, top folding card base. I die cut a white tag using the middle die from "Tag Buddies" and made a bow at the top with some brown twine. I then adhered the tag to the front of the card using foam adhesive.

Next I stamped a second sentiment from "Time for Coffee" in brown at the bottom of the tag. I added a die cut coffee cup and a few die cut hearts above the cup.

To complete the card I used a clear glitter pen over the hearts and covered them with glossy accents.

My next card I primarily used die cuts on my card paired with the "Hot Coffee" stamp set. I am making a concerted effort in 2018 to use not only my paper scraps but more patterned paper!!

I started off by stamping the sentiment in brown across a white card stock strip using the "Hot Coffee" stamp set. I then added three stamped coffee beans from "Peace, Love and Coffee." I cut an angle at the end and adhered it to a card base that was covered in a scrap of teal paper.

Next I layered a mix of die cuts from "Cup of Coffee" and "Fun-Fetti" over the front of some small circles that I had punched out of scraps of patterned paper.

To finish everything off, I used glossy accents over some of the coffee beans and over the hearts.

These stamp sets, along with the dies are available now at CAS-ual Fridays Stamps under new. To get an extra 15% off your total order, use the promo code NORASENTME.
