Hello, everyone!

Welcome to the Coffee Loving Cardmakers and CAS-ual Fridays Collaboration Blog Hop! If you lost your way, please check out full blog hop list at the bottom of this post.

For today, I have two cards to share with you. I featured CAS-ual Fridays Cup of Coffee Stamp set and Coffee Cup Fri-Dies and here are what I came up with.

To begin, I die cut small mugs from white card stock CAS-ual Fridays Coffee Cup Die set several times. I colored them with Copic markers.

I layered patterned red, metallic silver and woodgrain papers from bottom to top. Then, I foam mounted mugs like Christmas tree.

I pulled out a small wooden star and rubbed it with watermark ink. I heat embossed it using Silver Sparkle embossing powder.

I silver heat embossed sentiment onto a piece of brown card stock as shown.

I finished off this card by adding clear drops here and there.

For my next card, I die cut background panel, big mug and coffee sentiment from cold pressed watercolor paper.

Check out their current challenge! I inspired by this color palette.

I watercolored background using distress inks. While it was drying, I colored my mug with Copic markers. (R81, R83) I colored coffee part with Copic E35 as well. I then scribbled it in Embossing Pen and sprinkled White Puff embossing powder and heat set it.

I stamped sentiment in black and foam mounted watercolor panel using craft foam onto grey card stock and white card base. As a final touch, I adhered some crystals as shown in the picture.

Hope you enjoyed today's cards. Happy hopping!
