Clean and Simple Latte

This is my 2nd Clean and Simple card this week. I was very intrigued with this week’s CAS Challenge at SCS. It called for distressing on a CAS card. Now to me, distressing does NOT go with CAS — it’s just something I would not naturally do — however, I LOVE IT!!! So I stayed with my same coffee theme and did another distressed CAS card:


Just a simple card — not a lot of explaining needed. Distressed again with my SU Distressing Tool, used May Arts 3/8″ gingham (available here), and stapled it onto my little sentiment tag. Image is Copic colored. That’s about it!

Stamps: Smell the Coffee by Impression Obsession from Stampers Dream

Paper: Neenah Classic White, SU Bashful Blue Prints DP

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: SU Distressing Tool, Circle Nestabilities by Spellbinders, Glue Glider, Mounting Squares


Stampers Dream carries Smell the Coffee, Neenah paper and Memento Ink.

Joans Garden carries Spellbinders, Mounting Squares and Glue Glider

Stamp Simply Ribbon Store carries this gingham and other May Arts Ribbons.

Thank you for checking in today! I’ve had such a busy week — just when you think it can’t get any busier, it does — such is life!!! But being busy is good for the soul!!! I’m grateful I’m able to be busy!!! And tomorrow I’ll be busy doing a Stamp Simply Challenge card to post. You’ll like this one — again, it’s a simple challenge without a lot of rules, usually only ONE requirement — that ANYONE can play!!! Hope to see you tomorrow!!! Thanks so much!!!
