Coffee?...Addicted to Stamps and More #199~CAS, Summer Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop

Hello,

Ready for some CAS fun? Hope so, because that's what my fabulous DT and I are offering for you over at Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #199...



I have a trio of cards that, after I figured out what I wanted to make (all inspired in some fashion by various DT members at STAMPLorations) took about 15 minutes each.  Simply simple...

A rainbow-y two cups o' java....

A rainbow jumble of retro-coffee pots (which is rather like the one my husband and I use. We don't have a coffee maker, so our must-have beverage is made using a a glass carafe, Melitta filters, coffee grounds, boiling water. Pretty old school, actually, but I love my coffee hot!)....(Oh yes: I don't consider this one to be CAS...not enough white space...)


A rainbow-inked (are you detecting a theme here *grin*) stencil...


Of course, I'm heading off the amazing Summer Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop
and, because I've used entirely STAMPlorations products, I'm also off to STAMPLorations~Anything Goes Challenge.


and STAMPlorations June 2016 CAS Challenge


Your turn!  What CAS-ilicious creations will you dazzle us with this week?

Looking forward to finding out!  See you in the gallery!

I'm so glad you spent part of your day with me; you visit brings me immense joy!

Got my mouth open here, Carol. You made WAAAYY too BEAUTIFUL coffee cards! I can't even decide which one's my favorite because they each have *something* that I love after I thought I've decided on a favorite -- those awesome grunge splatters in rainbow colors on the first; the black splatters on the retro coffee pot covered panel; and that impressive sponging through the stencil. I'm in coffee heaven :o) I so appreciate your support and regular use of STAMPlorations products -- if your DT commitments ever lighten up and there happens to be an opening in the STAMPlorations design team, I would love to have you over there for a term at least :o)

Oh boy, Carol! Look at this trio of beauty. One doesn't have to necessarily like coffee to appreciate the beauty of cards celebrating the beverage, correct? Because you've got some fabulous cards here all in a gorgeous rainbow theme. I adore each one, but the blending on your stenciled one just about took my breath away. Wowie!! You are mega talented my friend. Hugs!!
