Cup of Cheer Card


There’s something about winter, especially these Canadian winters, that make me want hot chocolate with marshmallows! A while ago I picked up the ‘Mug Hugs’ stamps from Sunny Studios, it’s filled with images of warm winter drinks & treats. Take a look:

I stamped a few of the images and fussy cut them out. I used alcohol ink markers to colour them in very simply. I used a silver Wink of Stella shimmer marker to colour the coffee cup sleeve, and added some faux stitching.

For the green cup, I added some glossy accents on the marshmallows, and added a snowflake from a separate set on the front of the mug.


For the card front, I used Lawn Fawn’s ‘Stitched Borders’ to create a bit of interest behind the mugs.  I did not separate the border strips, I just used them as is, and ran them through my Sizzix on an angle.


Lastly, I heat embossed a sentiment from the set, and added some gold Nuvo Drops. I used foam tape behind the white card front, so have it pop a bit off of the base.

I definitely see myself using this set a lot!


Thanks for looking & click the above photo to share on Pinterest!
