Clean and Simple Class #2 Day #10

Hello dear friends,

I am throughly enjoying the CAS class. Will be sad when it ends (cry!) I am catching up on day 10 homework. Missed day #9 and one more day in between. But I will catch up on them over the week.

Day #10 homework was to grab a stamp and use it in three different ways. Ok first here is my stamp set I chose to use. I chose the entire set instead of a stamp.

This is the Lil Inker Designs-Coffee Cozies Stamp Set. This is one set which I bought long time ago but didn't use it at all.

Here is my sketch book once again. The sketches are very rough. But I do know what I want to do by just looking at them:)

Here are my three cards

This one is based on the middle sketch. Although I drew a landscape orientation on my sketch, I prefered portrait orientation. And I can use one card stock to make two cards. I have added some colour to the cozies to represent different characters of friends:)

This next card is using the third sketch. I have used purple neon ink from Hero Arts for the background and the sentiment and subtle stamping of the cup on the front panel.

The final card is the interactive card using the first sketch. 

Here is a picture of how the lid of the coffee cup comes out to reveal the sentiment. I went with the valentine's theme on this card. The arrow is from Mama Elephant's Trifecta 

So using the same stamp set three different cards. Love this idea and it is so easy to make a gift set this way.

Hope you like it. I have to keep going now. Today is my Wedding Anniversary and we are going out for dinner:)
In the mean time, check out CAS-ual Fridays Stamp Blog where my tags are featured today:)

See you later!

Awesome cards Gayatri! Love the the fun colours of the first, and the last one is just plain clever! Middle one made me smile, that sentiment is so perfect. :-)

Fantastic Gayatri! Love them all, but my fave is that hidden sentiment, it's so clever. Congrats on your anniversary too, hope you had a great night out!
