Use a beverage

Our sketch this week at Try Stampin on Tuesday with it's added challenge of beverages couldn't be more apt for me as I've been playing with my new stamp set from Sunny Studio called Mug Hugs.

I started off with an SU embossing folder and used Crumb Cake card stock sponged around the edges with Early Espresso.  I used a stitched circle framelit for the mug and coloured it in with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Peacock Feathers.  I used an SU blender pen in Light Gray for the marshmallows and added some Dazzling Diamonds to them.  The candy cane was coloured in with SU Cherry Cobbler and the heart added to the mug was coloured in with TH Picked Raspberry. 

 I was lucky enough to find a few bits of old SU DSP which had coffee stains on them to add as the papers.  The sentiment is from the Sunny Studio set.  I added some linen thread from my stash and mounted it all on to Early Espresso card stock.

I'm also adding this into the following challenges:

Just us Girls - Latte
Color my Heart Color Dare - Tic Tac Toe - Espresso, Ruby, Ivy

Lovely card. I love your hot cocoa mug and that embossed background makes it look nice and cozy. Nicely done and thanks so much for playing along with Just Us Girls.

How comforting, the embossed sweater background and sitting by the fire with your hot chocolate... couldn't be any better...fun and pretty card. Thanks for sharing with us at Color Dare.
