Hello! I hope everyone had a fun Halloween weekend! Today's post features a cute CAS thank you card I made for the latest SSS Wednesday Challenge. It's anything goes so be sure to swing by their blog before Wednesday!

To begin the card, I used the 4 1/2 x 3 1/4" stitched rectangle die by Lawn Fawn to die cut my focal panel. I used the mug stamp from the SSS "What's Brewing" set and the little heart stamp from the "Snow Day" set by Lawn Fawn. I colored the mug using Copic Markers and to add a little depth, I outlined the image with my B0000 Copic Marker. 

Mug: R37, R39 RV99, E18, W6
Ground: W0, W2, W4

I stamped the steam using the new Mama Elephant "Brown Sugar" pigment ink. I absolutely LOVE this new color. It's such a pretty warm gray and so versatile. I added some clear Wink of Stella to the steam to add some shine. It's hard to tell in the photo, but in person the steam has such a pretty sparkle to it. For the sentiment, I used the banner die from the new Mama Elephant "Tags a Lot" set. I used the sentiment from the "What's Brewing" set and simply curved the sentiment to fit onto the curved banner. I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder and mounted the banner onto the focal panel using foam tape.
To finish my focal panel, I distressed the edges with Antique Linen distress ink. I then matted the focal panel onto a piece of pattern paper from the Fancy Pants "Happy-Go-Lucky!" 6x6 paper pack. To finish the card, I applied a thick layer of Glossy Accents to the mug. This took quite a while to dry, however the finishing result was so worth it! 
Thanks again for stopping by and until next time! ♥
