Mug Card

Hello Everybody,
I have seen these mug cards quite a bit on the internet and decided to try my hand at it. I thought it would make a great project for my technique club. So I downloaded this template and was off and running. I had seen this card on splitcoast and knew that I had to case it, so I married the two ideas and love how it turned out. I also realized I have another entry for the Paper Players colour challenge this week! Gotta love that.

Happy Stamping,

Stamps: Christmas Punch
Ink: Real Red
Paper: Real Red, Basic Black, Whisper WHite
Accessories: Cropadile, scallop edge punch, mug template, scallop square punch

Christmas is coming...

I know it is still a ways away, but it is never too early to start stamping Christmas cards. This year I am really trying to keep my cards simple and easy to produce. I cased this card by Teneale Williams - I just loved the soft vintage look of it. Lovely as a  Tree is probably my favourite stamp set. Each year SU! comes out with a new cattie, I am worried Lovely as a Tree will retire - it is the one set, retired or not - I will never part with. My other card, I cased from somewhere, but I can't remember where. I tried to look for it in the blogosphere, but to no avail. The original had used a different sentiment and a different bird image, but the basic layout is the same. Very easy to make. TFL.

Hi Everyone,
The school is off to a very busy start, and as a result I have been a little negligent with posting! So, I am back in action with an entry for this week's Paper Players challenge. I made this card a while ago, but never posted it here. I used this colour combo in an attempt to belnd a non-traditional Christmas colour with a traditional one. I love the way it turned out. TFL.
