A Cup of Good Cheer

Hey Stampers,

Well, it is December !! I can now OFFICIALLY sing Christmas carols and talk about Christmas without some people giving me weird looks. LOL So, only 24 more sleeps !! So excited !! So, if you haven't got your Christmas cards finished (or even started) maybe my card today will give you some inspiration to break out some rubber, ink and paper !! My card today uses the awesome Scentsational Season stamp set, I just LOVE the sweet mug image ... take a look !!


Cute, right ?? I love that mug !! I also love having the beautiful verse on the OUTSIDE of the card. I seem to always just place a small sentiment on the front, and the nice verse on the inside ... but I'm glad I mixed it up on this card. This sweet verse is from the More Merry Messages stamp set, and I think it goes really well with the mug. I stamped the sentiment in Chocolate Chip ink and stamped it onto Whisper White cardstock. I then trimmed the banner around the sentiment, and added a Chocolate Chip layer behind it to make it really stand out. The DSP is from the Festival of Prints DSP Stack, love the soft Bashful Blue color with the Chocolate Chip !!

My mug focal point was inked up with Bashful Blue ink and then I used my Chocolate Chip marker to color in the Hot Cocoa. I stamped it onto Whisper White and then added the steam image with Chocolate Chip ink as well. I punched the whole thing out with the 2-1/2" Circle Punch and then layered that onto the scallop image from the Perfect Pennants Bigz Die. Some 1/2" Chocolate Chip Scalloped Dots Ribbon across the top really added some nice texture to the card, and also gave me something to "hang" by banner from. Love that yummy ribbon!!

Well, thats it for my simple card today !! Hope you enjoyed it, thanks a lot for coming by today and Happy Stamping !!
