Hello crafty friends!! Please join me for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week the challenge is

Humorous/Fun Card

We are showcasing Riley and Co. products this week.  If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge. 

As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $25 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.  You can enter 5 times which means you can make 5 different projects following this week’s prompt and have 5 chances to win a shopping spree!! Sounds like a win/win to me!! I’ve linked all of the supplies that I used at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.


I LOVE this company!! They have the absolute BEST sentiments!! I actually laughed out loud when I saw this one so I knew I had to use it. It’s conveniently called Boobs in My Coffee by Riley and Co. I paired this sentiment up with a stamp by The Rabbit Hole called Caffeinated Cat which I thought was a perfect match.

After I colored my caffeinated cat with my copic markers, I took a piece of Bristol Smooth Card stock and the Splatters stencil by Tim Holtz and stenciled the coffee rings up in the top left corner of my panel with Ground Espresso distress ink. Then I used a Stitched Rectangle die by Lawn Fawn and die cut it to give it a nice stitched border. I took some Walnut Stain distress ink and ink blended all around the edges of my stitched panel.

Using my mini Misti I stamped my sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used several foam squares, both large and small and popped my caffeinated kitty up a bit.

I then grabbed an A2 piece of Neenah Desert Storm card stock and stamped the coffee beans all around the edge using Sparrow ink by Simon Says Stamp.

I used a piece of craft foam to pop up my top layer and then attached it all to a top folding card base. I used the Neenah Desert Storm card stock for the card base as well.

I also made a 2nd card using the same sentiment. I did exactly the same thing, I just used a different image.

I used the Simon Says Stamp Coffee Cup wafer die for this card.

Which one do you like better?

So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!

  1. Riley and Co have great sentiments. I like the cat card best as she looks like she’s had a rough morning.
    We could all do with more laughs these days.
