Hello there Stamping Friends!
Today I'm joining the BILLIONS ;) of stampers worldwide as we hop, hop, hop on the Holiday Coffee Lovers Hop. It's such a fun and inspirational hop and I look forward to visiting each and every blog (It takes a DAYS, but it's worth it!) to be inspired and filled with cafe love...and maybe a few teas here and there too.
I decided to play along a few times and this is my first group of cards. This is a new Kit of the Month set called Cozy Wishes by Fun Stampers Journey. I like the little knitted cozy around the mug and it was easy to add a bit of Copic coloring to the knit pattern. The mug was attached to a background I created with one of my new FSJ stencils and some modeling paste. I just received these supplies in the mail the other day and was ITCHING to play this weekend! WOO! A little distressing over the background after it was dry and it made the stencil pattern come to life. Added a few strips of FSJ washi tape, a jingle bell, a red sparkly star from Walmart and a little stamped tag finish it off!
Isn't it yummy?!?!
I turned this mug into a gift card holder. Although the first card doesn't show a gift card, it too will hold a gift card and will be sent to someone special this Christmas. On this second card, I changed the color of the background distressing and added a little Rudolph image from another FSJ set I love.
And there you have it! My first contribution to the hop. I'll be back again tomorrow (or Tuesday) to add one more project. I know you'll love it. And....to one lucky blog READER, there will be a sneaky coffee themed prize...Let's see who will read and not just preview/scan/picture walk and comment (I'm an elementary school teacher and I have quite a bit of experience with "picture walks") ha ha ha.
Want to join the hop? You have until Dec. 18 to participate. Just create a card with the coffee/tea theme and link-up your post with the blog HERE
All items used (except the tiny jingle bell, seam binding, Walmart Sparkly snowflake, and the Red Stickles on Rudolph's nose) on these cards are Fun Stampers Journey products and can be purchased through a coach (I'm a coach!) via my webstore. If you're interested in purchasing this exclusive Kit of the Month, feel free to contact me, I'd be happy to help you.
