Warm winter wishes

I have one more coffee-themed card to share. After stamping, copic colouring and fussy cutting my images (Coffee Collection kit, Create a Smile), I paired them with a previously die cut panel (from an older SOA collection) and layered everything onto my white card base. The sentiment is by Winnie and Walter.

To finish off, I added a little shimmer to the whipped cream, the heart and the berries on my patterned paper and added a layer of glossy accents onto the heart and the berries.

I'm linking up my card at:

Merriest wishes

I created another card using the same mug die that I used for my previous card. Since I had already coloured it (using Copics) and used a few items from my UFO box (the watercoloured background and the stamped and die cut candy cane (Candy cane lane, Catherine Pooler)), this card came together fairly quickly.

The sentiment is from Snow Globe Sentiments, a small but versatile set by MFT and the snowflake die is by CAS-ual Fridays (Funky Flakes, which was part of a Stamp of Approval collection). To finish up, I added some Nuvo crystal drops

Christmas mug

Hi there! I managed to create another card tonight for a couple of challenges out in blogland.

I pulled out the CAS-ual Fridays die that I purchased a while ago after winning a gift voucher to the CAS-ual Fridays store and decided to colour it in using my Copics for a bit of blending practice.
Next, I stamped the reindeer and snowflake from my NBUS stamp set by Simply Made Crafts/Helen Griffin (Traditional Christmas). To add more interest to my card base while at the same time keeping my card CAS, I used my score board to score a few lines and then swiped some warm grey ink cubes (Altenew) across to give the impression of a wood panel. To tie in the brown-grey colour of the wood panel, I used some brown baker's twine to add a bow to my cup, before popping up my cup using foam tape. I used my corner chomper to round the bottom corners of my card.
