Little Cup of Cocoa


Coffee Loving Cardmakers is currently hosting the 2020 Fall / Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! For my Fourth entry into this hop, I chose this loveable snowman in a hot tub of Cocoa called Snow Yummy – S182  by High Hopes Rubber Stamps. For the sentiments I used High Hopes Rubber Stamps, Cup of Cocoa – M009 and Holiday All Year – H200.

The image was stamped with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI to give me a nice clean image. The image was coloured with copic markers and then I fussy cut around it. I used a black marker to go around all of the edges where I had cut out the image.

I cut Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. paper to be 4.25″ x 11″. Then I scored the paper at 5.5″ and again at 8.25″. (2.75″ from the original score line). I cut another piece of the cardstock at 4.25″ x 5.5″ to be the front panel. I then cut Stampin’ Up – Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper to be 4.25″ x 5″ and used double-side tape to place it directly to the front panel piece. Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper was used to create the snow. I cut it 4.25″ wide and then just tore a piece across the width to create the shape. I used double-sided tape to adhere this directly to the bottom of the front panel.

The sentiments were then added with Versa Fine – Onyx Black and embossed with Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder. This was then heat set with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. To create the rectangles, I used  My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers  for the patterned paper and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies for the background rectangle using Hot Buy – Recollections – Jewel Tones. Next, I ran the small sentiment and the coloured image through my Xyron Creative Station to create stickers out of them. This made it easer to adhere the larger image to the background and the smaller sentiment to the larger rectangle.

The card was now ready to assemble. I applied double-sided tape to only the lower half of the scored card and then placed the finished scene panel onto it. I cut another piece of patterned paper at 4-1/8″ x 3″ and adhered it the lower half of the inside card. Then I popped up the sentiment using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I added some Wink of Stella – Clear  to the snowman to make him sparkle and Gelly Roll Stardust – Clear and the Wink of Stella – Clear to the large snowflake on the mug. Lastly, I added some Stickles – Diamond to add some texture to the snow.
