Hugs in a Mug | Mama Elephant

Happy Thursday Y’all! I hope that you’ve been enjoying the last of summer as we transition into FALL! Yes in CAPITOL letters as I love all things fall, especially all the cozy rainy crafty sessions, with a cup of hot chocolate on the side! I love my hot drinks in the fall and winter, so of course this cute Hot Cocoa stamp set from Mama Elephant jumped into my cart as soon as it was released!

To create this card, I started by stamping all of the images from the Hot Cocoa stamp set onto some heavy weight card stock and coloring them using copic markers. The I cut them out using the coordinating dies.

Copic Combos : BG 13, 32, 34; YG01, 03, 21; R01, 08, 11, 14, 24, 32, 43; C1; N4, 6; YR00, 01; E11, 13, 15, 27, 31, 55, 57

To create the shaker background, I die cut the Six Window Cover die from some white card stock and inked it up using shabby shutters and worn lipstick distress oxide inks, leaving a bit of white space in the middle, I backed the die cut with acetate, and layered on the foam tape and filled it with some seed beads.

I finished off the card using a sentiment from the same stamp set, embossed in white on to black card stock and trimmed down into a strip. I adhered it to the center/white area of the card, and arranged the colored images around it, adding one of the little accents to each one.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope that you were inspired to create something! Make sure to tag me @everydayengineered on Instagram so I can see what you have created! 

Happy Crafting!
