Happy Thursday! Well it’s basically a few hours to Friday, which means it pretty much the weekend! I missed the February Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge, but I really wanted to make sure that I sneak on into the March challenge, Green.

I stretched “green” to greenery” and added a lot of foliage to my coffee mugs! And since it’s winter on my card I added some whipped cream topping!

To create this card, I started by stamping the image from the Heartfelt Holidays stamp set twice and die cut it with the mug die cuts from the Mugs and Kisses die set. I colored in the images using copic markers and added the whipped cream die cuts that I covered with some glitter nuvo drops, and set aside to dry.

Next I created the background for the card by embossing Holiday Foliage Stencil onto some green cardstock. I also die cut a banner from the Banner Trio Die Set from and embossed a sentiment from the Heartfelt Holidays stamp set on to it. I also die cut a scalloped oval from vellum using the Oval Frames Die Set to add behind mug to help them pop. As always, I finished off with some jewels.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope that this card inspires you to create something and you get some crafty time this weekend! 
Happy Crafting!

I finally finished my card for #getcrackingonChristmas for Jenn Shurkus‘ monthly challenge, using Claire’s Card On Christmas Card Challenge monthly theme of “background stamp” as my starting point! I had the image colored in already so managed to put it together during nap time, and now racing against the clock to share this card before little R wakes up!

To create this card, I started by embossing the Falling Snow Background from Honey Bee Stamps using white embossing powder. Next I inked it up using distress oxide inks (in chipped sapphire, broken china and salty ocean), buffed it to let the white pop through again, added some gold paint splatters, and set it aside to dry.

Next I colored the wreath from Pretty Pink Posh’s Winter Wreath Stamp Set using copic makers, then embossed it using gold embossing powder and die cut it using the coordinating die. I die cut a banner from some blue card stock, and embossed a sentiment from the same stamp set and added it behind the wreath, and added the wreath to the inked background with foam tape. Lastly I added some jewels from the Holiday Jewels Mix.

If you made it this far, thank you! If you are inspired by any of my work please tag me on Instagram as I would love to see your recreation!
