Ugh, yesterday was NOT a good day, but I'm hoping that today will be better. I did manage to make a card yesterday though, and I inked up two more brand-new stamp sets!
The mug is from the set Nothing's Better Than and HOW did I make my first card with COFFEE CUPS and not the CHOCOLATE or the COOKIES?! I don't even DRINK coffee! But I thought they worked best with the color challenge I wanted to use. I got Ornate Thanks on my first big catalog order as well; I didn't get the dies for it because I didn't think I would use them, but I love the font styles on the sentiments in the stamp set.
So three challenges for today! Let's start with the Global Design Project sketch:
This was fun, I just stamped the mugs randomly on the card front until I liked it and thought I had enough of them. Next up is the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge:
It's hard to tell the difference between Pool Party and Mint Macaron on my card, but I promise I used both. The solid stamp on the mugs is Pool Party (with some Wink of Stella because I love it), and the steam is Pool Party stamped off once; the cardstock strip for the sentiment is Pool Party. The little star accents are Mint Macaron.
Finally, here's the Paper Players theme challenge:
This gave me the excuse to ink up Ornate Thanks for the sentiment, and I still had lots of white space to keep this card CAS. I do have lots of friends who drink coffee (and think that me and my hubs are weirdos because we don't) so I'm sure I'll have a use for this card soon.
Hope your day goes well, kids. Cheers!
