Tuesday Night



Hi everyone! Hope this finds everyone well. Had some time to play tonight since DH had band practice. woo hoo!!! So I made this card for two different challenges. One of the challenges is over at Celebrate the Occasion, and you know I just had to support my fellow DT members. The challenge this week was to make a circle card. The other challenge is the Cricut Cartridge Chaos Challenge #28 over at Tattered Time. Their challenge was to use the Birthday Cakes cartridge. So I used my Elegant Edges cartridge and my Gypsy to create the card base with Core'dinations cardstock. I used DCWV pattern paper from the Nana's Kitchen stack and the coffee cup was cut from the Birthday Cakes cartridge with scrap of Bazzil cardstock. I then ran the cup through my Cuttlebug using the Sizzix Wedding embossing folder. Then I inked the embossing with a Colorbox cat's eye chalk ink. I wanted to give it a "china" look so I then used my Versamark ink pad and some Utee and did some heat embossing on it. It doesn't show as well in the picture, but it looks very glassy in person. The sentiment stamp is from Pink By Design. Well, I should head off to bed, it'll be time to get up before I know it. Have a great rest of your evening, and as always, thanks for stopping by!
