Java Great Day!



Hi everyone.  Time for the latest challenge at Addicted to CAS.  This challenge is being hosted by the very creative Deepti (Dee's Art Utopia) ... and she choose this fun word ...





Prize:  7 free digis
(please follow the rules to be eligible to win)

____________________


I have to say that Bugaboo has an incredible selection of fun digital images.  It is one of my favorite places to look for digital stamps and I have several that I have used over the past few years.  I have three of their "coffee" stamps.  This one is call Java Great Day ... don't you love it??!! :)  I used the image of the coffee cup, but didn't use their sentiment, instead I used the same words, but printed it in a fun font that I downloaded called Celebration Time.  Having fun experimenting with the different fonts that are available for free on the internet :)

I used a layout that I have seen several times over the past few months ... a partial die-cut circle surrounding the focal image - it's a great way to highlight your image.  I added a line of stitching to give it even more impact.  Simple paper pieced image ... I had so much fun making this Clean and Simple card.  FYI, I printed off the "foam" onto white card stock, smeared it with dazzling diamonds glitter and once dry cut it out.  I gave it a little shape using my stylus and mat so that it has a bit of dimension - not sure if that comes across in the photo, but it was a small effort to give it a bit more oomph!

Just a reminder that the ATCAS challenge (#32 - code word:  Coffee) runs for a full two weeks, so there's lots of time to enter.  Come join in the fun ... and check out the inspiring cards from the rest of the Design Team!







Stamps:  Coffee Time - Java Great Day (Bugaboo)
Paper:  White, Snap Life (Simple Stories)
Ink:  Real Red
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Circle Nestability (Spellbinders), dazzling diamonds

Love this "off the edge" look Loll - I've been seeing it around quite a bit as well. Your paper piecing is magnificent as usual and I love the glittery foam.

Your cards are just so simple but always so amazing. I don't know how you come up with so many ideas with so few things.
