Retro Sketches #90 and Be Inspired #41

Ok, yup I'm back. I am having some creative time today and enjoying it. I am also trying a new challenge today. I love the DT samples over at Retro Sketches.

I created a CAS card and even used... gasp... vellum.
I could not resist using The Alley Way Stamps - Be Inspired #41 inspiration again as I love the colours and all those Polka Dots.
I added some coffee stains to the background paper then heat embossed some beans in brown. I added another strip of DP that has the colours in the above inspiration photo and then covered it with some Vellum. I inked up paper edges then heat embossed the mug and fussy cut it out and popped it up with foam tape.
Supplies: Cream and brown card stock, Vellum, Designer Paper - Fancy Pants , The Alley Way Stamps - Breakfast Club.


  1. I never remember to use vellum and it always looks so cool. I love how you used all these different patterns and the chevrons peeking through the vellum is such a great contrast to the stripes and polka dots!

  2. Cute cards love that new stamp set you got. Thanks for sharing.


  3. Just love your take on the sketch! Your coffee cup is so inviting at that angle!

  4. Isn't this awesome! I love how pretty this's just perfect and so creative! The vellum is a wonderful touch. So happy you joined us at TAWS Be Inspired Challenge!
