Step Aside, Coffee

It's time for a new challenge at Addicted To CAS. Our Code Word for ATCAS Challenge #187 is ONE LAYER. Barb is our wonderful hostess. 
Please note: After this challenge, Addicted To CAS, along with all of the challenge blogs run by Kylie Purtell, will be suspended for 6 months while Kylie takes a much needed break.

Now, on to my card. I love making one layer cards. They used to terrify me, but now I often opt to make them even if not required. The Step Aside, Coffee stamp and sentiment from Unity Stamp Company has been laying on my desk crying out to be used. When I saw it on a card a while ago, I just had to have it, but it came, and then it sat. I decided that the time had finally come to break it out and ink it up!

I stamped the image in Memento Rich Cocoa ink on a Neenah Solar White 110# card base and colored the mug with Copics. I then decided to complete my card by framing the image and sentiment by embossing with a Spellbinders Hemstitch Rectangles die. I just really love the look of it.   

Please head on over to the ATCAS Challenge Blog, take a look at the wonderful creations that the Design Team has created for your inspiration, and make something to share in the gallery. Happy crafting!

Please remember that this is a CAS challenge. Here is a definition to remind you:

Did you just use a hemstitch die to deboss?? OH how fabulous is that?! and the sentiment almost made me spew my coffee!
Incredibly fun, and adorable to boot - my kinda card!

What a fun card, Stephanie. I would never have thought to emboss with the hemstitch die but it looks great and frames the images perfectly.
