Warm Winter Wishes ....

..... Hello! It's really wintery here today - we had our first proper snowfall this morning with about an inch falling and more expected tonight, so it's the perfect excuse to stay in and play!! I made a card for the Winter Coffee Lovers Challenge - WCLC17:

Stamps: Pink & Main Christmas Mugs; Uniko - Simply Said Christmas; Hero Arts - Holiday Florals Bold Prints
Inks: Gina K - Sweet Mango; Stampin' Up! - Cajun Craze; Versafine - Onyx Black
Dies: Pink & Main - Christmas Mugs; Die-namics - Zig Zag Stitched Oval Stax #2
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Peekaboo Peach; Copics; Wink of Stella - Clear; Gems; Clear Embossing Powder

I was watching a video by Jennifer McGuire recently that showed cute Christmas mugs - and this morning I stamped and coloured all of them. I made the card above using the fun orange mug - it's not at all traditional!!! 😊

I based the card layout on the sketch part of the current Fusion Challenge - FUSION#88. I stamped the mug in my MISTI, coloured it with Copics, put it back in the MISTI, restamped in Versafine and heat embossed with clear powder. Then I cut it out with the coordinating die. I stamped the background image in a soft peach and added a couple of strips of peach card. I coloured some scrap card with Copics to make the oval mat. I finished the front of the card by adding a simple Christmas greeting, some gems and lots of sparkle to the mug. On the inside, I cut a mat layer of peach card and added a greeting and another mug to the white panel.

I took a close-up photo of the mug to show all the pretty sparkle:

I posted all my overseas Christmas cards on Thursday but ran out of cards for my American friends, so I'm going to be busy this weekend making some more cards! I think there might be a few that feature these lovely Christmas mugs!!

That's all for now - I'm off back to my craft room to play. If you have to be out and about in all the snow (here and in the UK) be safe! See you soon.
