Thanks to our sponsors!

   Happy Friday!!!  Today is a special event over on the Cut It Up Challenge Blog.  This week, we are taking time to celebrate and thank our fabulous sponsors.  They've been so generous with prizes for all of our challenges.

The two sponsors I am highlighting today are:

Lawn Fawn
CAS-ual Fridays

Here are my cards for your inspiration:
First up is Lawn Fawn
I created this adorable "Thanks a Latte" themed card for them using the "Thanks a Latte" stamp set and a fun background frame.  I die cut the frame out of craft card stock and then cut scraps of fall themed patterned paper to sit behind the openings.  I stamped, colored, and fussy cut the mug images and stamped their little scarves on coordinating patterned paper before cutting them out and adhering them to the mugs.  I added whipped cream to the top of the female mug--I think she is a pumpkin spice latte, and a little bit of steam stamped on vellum to the male mug--he's definitely a no-nonsense plain latte kind of guy.  I added the sentiment to a die cut banner and adhered it across the center of the card.  Then I stamp a bunch of leaves (that also come with the stamp set), colored them and fussy cut them out before adhering them to the card is if they were falling into a pile at the bottom.
Second, CAS-ual Fridays:
Unfortunately, they have had to close down the store, but we still want to give them a great big "Thank You" for their past sponsorship.  I actually started this card on a white card base, but when I was trying to add the band of patterned paper, it was just too stark white and I didn't like it.  So, I started over on a piece of kraft card stock cut with a stitched rectangle die and like it sooooo much better now.  I stamped the sentiment and then masked over it so I could stamp the tree trunks on top of it, but not overlapping.  Then I used the "leaves" image two times each with red and orange inks to give it a fall feel.  I added the strip of patterned paper with a scalloped border mat and finished everything off with a die cut paper "button" and twine.  Then I adhered the panel to the original white card base and nothing was wasted!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you will hop over to the Cut It Up blog for the full details of this event and to see what the rest of the Design Team has created.
