12 Days of Christmas--Day 8--Scentsational Cocoa
Day number 8 of my '12 Days of Christmas' series! This cards is one that I saw demonstrated at the Stampin' Up! convention this past summer. It's actually the card that finally convinced me to buy the Festival of Prints DSP stack. :-) It's nice because you cut one sheet from the stack exactly in half--getting 2 layers/two cards. When we made these in a Stamp-A-Stack class, each person got 4 sheets of Designer Paper--all different--and they got to choose which side of the DSP they used on each card.
Really the only 'trick' to this card is stamping the mug. First ink up with Gumball Green, then take your Blender Pen to remove the green ink just from the 'drink' part of the image. Then use your Early Espresso marker to color in the drink. Breathe on the stamp to re moisten the ink, and stamp on your card stock.
Cute and simple! I thought this would make an adorable invitation for a holiday get-together, but particularly a caroling/hot cocoa party.
