Hello there!  Since January has five Tuesdays, that means it’s time for a double challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches!  This week we’re asking our challenge participants to combine the given colors with the given sketch.  Sounds like fun, right?  We’ve decided to put a little twist into it this year.  We’ve dubbed our double challenges “Timeless Tuesday”, which means we’re reaching back into the archives for some retired colors and a previous CC&S sketch.

One of my sweet design team members at CC&S sent me a stamp set for Christmas, and I’ve been remiss about thanking her properly for it, so I figured what better way to do that than to make a card with it.  :)  It seemed to play pretty well both into this week’s sketch and colors.  I stamped the coffee cup twice, once onto ivory cardstock and once onto a scrap of sage green designer paper.  I fussy cut them both to give the cup a green design.  The label/sleeve was created in the same manner and attached to the green cup.  I decided to use the lighter of the other two challenge colors for my card base.  I originally planned to stamp the sentiment on a narrow strip of the darker color.  I didn’t want that narrow strip to look too plain, so I stamped it with a subtle linen-look stamp, but it doesn’t really show in the photo.  Then I decided if I stamped the sentiment on the strip, the strip would seem too wide in proportion to the other elements of the card.  So I cut the strip to make it narrower, and stamped the sentiment below it.  The coffee cup is raised up from the background with some shims of scrap cardstock, so there’s a bit of dimension to the card.
