And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Rise and Shine!

Hello friends and Happy Fall!  What a gorgeous day we had yesterday.  It's finally beginning to feel a little bit like fall…couldn't resist a long walk with DH and Kody!  It's almost time to break out the hot chocolate and tea, but these cards are for all of you coffee drinkers out there.  The stamps, dies, and papers for both of these cards from Our Daily Bread Designs.

Creative Nugget:  Watered down distress inks were used to make the coffee stains and splatters on a piece of mixed media paper.  The panel cut with Pierced Rectangles Dies was split in two…one for the coffee cup made with the Beverage Cup Dies and one for the sentiment from the Rise And Shine stamp set.  Papers from the Ephemera Essentials Paper Pad were used for all of the accents and the card front.  The design for the card was inspired by the MOJO Monday sketch for last week.
A precut and scored Diamond Fold Card was used for the base of this next coffee card.

Creative Nugget:  Each panel on the Diamond Fold Card was lined with fun papers from the Birthday Brights Paper Pad.  The band and the whipped cream from the Beverage Cup Dies can also be used to make a cute cupcake to have along with your coffee.  "HI" was cut three times with the Alphabet Dies, stacked for dimension, and colored with a Wink of Stella pen for some shimmer.

Organdy ribbon tied around the card keeps it closed, but when opened, a sentiment from the I Love Coffee stamp set is revealed.   Layered Lacey Squares and Pierced Squares Dies were used to cut a frame for the sentiment.  

These cards will be submitted for the following challenges:
MOJO Monday 466
Word Art Wednesday Challenge Week 249 - Anything Goes
Just Us Girls #362 - Photo Week (inspired by the colors)
Crafting From the Heart Challenge 128 - Anything Goes
Pile It On #117 - Autumn Colors/Theme
Try It on Tuesday: Coffee and Cream/2 Colors

Thanks so much for stopping by…have some coffee and enjoy the Lord's Day!

Folded cards are so much fun and you've made a beautiful one, Cathy. A lot of great patterned paper and die cuts. I'm so glad you shared this with us at Just Us Girls.
