Hug in a Mug!


Coffee Loving Cardmakers is currently hosting the 2020 Fall / Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! For my second entry into this hop, I chose the adorable stamp from (My Creative Time) called Cute Mugs – MCT326. 

To create this card, I first used my Cuttlebug and My Creative Time – Bunch of Fun Circle Dies to cut Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card paper. The image was stamped onto the die-cut with Memento – Tuxedo Black using my MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool to get a nice clean image. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then stamped the image again on the same paper that I used for the background and fussy cut around the tea-cup piece. I used a black marker to go around the edges and then paper-pieced it into place using some glue. I die cut the sign using Spellbinders – Shapeabilities S4-322 Grommet Tags and also the background circle using some scrap yellow paper. The sentiment was then stamped on using Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder was applied on top. Then, I used Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool to heat emboss the powder. I also die cut some red hearts with the die-cut that came with the stamp set.

I cut the background pattern from My Mind’s Eye – Lost and Found paper and then used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Antique Linen to go around the edges. I also used this ink to go around all of my other die cuts.

The card was now ready to assemble. I adhered the background to a base card of 6″ x 6″. Then using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape, I popped up the 2 circles and sign. I added a couple of brads to the sign before adding the tape. I ran the hearts through my Xyron Create a Sticker to make them into stickers and added them around the kitty to complete my card.

Hot Cocoa Hugs!


Coffee Loving Cardmakers is currently hosting the 2020 Fall / Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! For my first entry into this hop, I chose the adorable #YNS (Your Next Stamp) called Hot Cocoa Hugs – CYNS491 I couldn’t resist these adorable little mice. Winter is coming and who doesn’t love hot chocolate???

Stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card with Memento – Tuxedo Black using my MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool, cut at 5.5″ x 4.25″. The image was coloured with Copic Markers and then I created a mask and put it over top of the coloured image.

I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Evergreen Bough, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Cracked Pistachio and Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Peacock Feathers to create my background and then removed the mask. I used the Bookmark and Tags Die Set (Whimsy Stamps) to die cut the Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and then used the Tim Holtz inks to colour it and go around the edges. The sentiment was then stamped on using Versa Fine – Onyx Black ink and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder was applied on top. Then, I used Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool to heat emboss the powder.

To complete the assembly, I attached the finished image with double-sided tape to my base card of 5.5″ x 4.25″, which was made using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. paper. Lastly, I added a few mini round gems.
