For my three cards today, I used one of my favorite holiday mug stamp sets from Purple Onion Designs called Cups of Joy. I LOVE this stamp! In each case, I paired the cups with a Hero Arts sentiment...I think they go perfectly together.
For my first card, I stamped the cups onto several different pieces of coordinating patterned paper and paper-pieced the cups. A bit tedious, but I love the result!
For my second card, I made a one-layer card and colored the cups with Copics. Some Glossy Accents finish the heart and candy canes, and the red metallic gems make perfect berries.
Here they are together!
One additional card to add...I used the same stamp but didn't bother paper-piecing it, I just let the patterned paper do the work. I have to say, I like it!
To add to the fun, many participants are offering up some blog candy...and so am I! I'm offering up a package of assorted embellishments including enamel dots, gems, pearls, sequins and ribbons. I may throw in some other goodies, too! Be sure to leave me a comment (and include your contact info if necessary) so you can be included in the drawing; the winner will be announced on December 20th.
Be sure to check out the blog hop line-up for lots of holiday coffee inspiration! The holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop runs through Sunday, December 14th.
