On the CAS-ual Fridays Blog With Michele Ferguson

Happy Hump Day!! I cannot believe it is the LAST DAY OF FEBRUARY!!! Where has the month gone???

Today I am on the CAS-ual Friday's Blog using the same stamp sets as my friend, Michele Ferguson. I LOVE doing these type of challenges and asked her to join me. So PLEASE-hop on over to her BLOG and leave her some LOVE!!!

For my first card, I used the "Coffee Cup Fri-die" and elongated it to make a larger coffee cup. This was all Michele's brilliant idea!!! I then ran it through my die cut machine with an embossing folder and used some alcohol inks on top of it to make a cool pattern. It kind of reminds me of a pottery mug.

I layered it over a background that I created using Distress Stains. The "coffee stains" were made with Distress Ink and some containers on my desk!!!

I heat embossed a sentiment from the "Hot Coffee" stamp set in gold and used a pink heart that I die cut using my favorite "Fun-Fetti Fri-die" set. (I don't think I ever do a card without this set!!)

For my next card, I die cut the "Coffee Cup Fri-die" out of a background paper that I had created a couple weeks ago with a stencil and some glitter paste. I thought the way the glitter was situated that it would look good on the mug.

I then layered this over another background that I created using a combination of Distress Stain and Distress Ink.

I used a die cut heart that was sitting on my desk to embellish the middle of the mug. I covered with a glitter pen and then Glossy Accents.

The sentiment was stamped with a stamp from the "Hot Coffee" stamp set with some brown dye ink.

To finish off this card, I created a middle using the "Shenanigans" stamp set. I thought the sentiment on the front reminded me of a belated birthday so I made the inside of the card a birthday card.
