Celebrating National Cocoa day today I created my cocoa shaker card using the Christmas Cocoa stamp set from Joy Clair, one of the Winter Blog Hop Super Sponsors Perfect stamp set to celebrate this special Cocoa Day, don’t you think? 🙂

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set directly on the card with Memento Rich Cocoa Ink Pad.

I create the shaker frame using 2 sizes of Rectangle Dies from Our Daily Bread Designs, also one of the Blog Hop Super Sponsors. I cut out a watercolor paper that I already added some watercolor paints splatters on it. I added the acetate plastic with ScorPal Double Sided Tape.

For the filler, I mixed some of the Christmas shaped sequins from WOW! American Crafts and some clear jumbo glitter that I have in stash.

I added the shaker window frame on the card with some fun foam and double sided tape.

Next, I stamped the 2 cups from Christmas Cocoa stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad. I heat embossed the snowflakes on them with mixture of white embossing powder and holographic glitter embossing powder. After that I colored the cups with Arteza Real Brush Pens and Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Brush Pen. Don’t you love the sparkle and glitter on them? 🙂

Once they dried, I fussy cut them with micro-tip scissors. And I used craft knife to cut the inside of the cup handles.

For the marshmallow and foam, I added some DecoArt Snow Writer paste on them for extra texture and puffy look. I added the cups on the card, the smaller cup with liquid adhesive and the taller one with fun foam tape.

I stamped the candy canes with Red Rhubbarb Memento DewDrop ink and color it with Arteza Real Brush Pen, fussy cut them, and then tucked them under the cups.

That’s all my card today… I hope you all can enjoy your hot cocoa and making some pretty things today!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today. Have a wonderful day!

This passage describes the greatness of God compare to the idols. Non of the idols can compare to the power of the Living God. He is the one who creates the world and his glory displayed in this world. We all can see it plainly with our eyes. We only need to aware of His presence in our lives.

God himself always will reveal Himself and His glory through his creations, including us!

Winter 2017 Coffee Loving Blog Hop Day 4: Java Merry Christmas

My card today I created using the adorable Christmas Mugs stamp set from Pink and Main, one of the Super Sponsors for this blog hop.

I stamped the candies directly on the card with the London Fog – Memento DewDrop ink to create the background.

Winter 2017 Coffee Loving Blog Hop Day 4: Java Merry Christmas

With this stamp set, you cannot resist to not color them 🙂 So, I pull out my Arteza Real Brush Pens and Spectrum Noir Sparkle Brush Pen to color those mugs.

First I stamped them on 2 watercolor paper panels with Versafine Onyx Black using Mini MISTI to get bold line. Then I colored them with the real brush pens and used the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Brush Pen to get the watercolor look and glitter at the same time.

I fussy cut out the little mug with micro tip scissors. And the other one with the taller mug, I die cut it using one of the Fancy Frames from Craftin Dessert Divas, which is also one of the Super Sponsors.

I die cut it again to create one more layer of mat for the card. I added the first mat on the card with adhesive, then the second I added some fun foam behind it and then I added it on the card with adhesive.

I added the second cup with 3D foam tape, bit overlapping it with the taller mug.

For the sentiment, I stamped it on a white cardstock with Rhubarb Stalk Memento DewDrop, and cut it into paper strips. I added it on the card with adhesive.

That’s I how I created this card for this Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Day 3. You still have time until this Friday, December 15th to link up your projects here and by linking up, you have chances to win the giveaway prizes!

Winter 2017 Coffee Loving Blog Hop Day 2: Christmas Is

My card for this day 2 I created using the Coffeecionado stamp setWarm Hands, Warm Hearts stamp set and Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies from STAMPlorations, one of the Super Sponsors for this blog hop.

Winter 2017 Coffee Loving Blog Hop Day 2: Christmas Is

I stamped the cup with Versamark ink pad on a white cardstock and heat embossed it with mix of gold embossing powder and holographic glitter embossing. I did it twice to get the bold and thicker effect on the embossed image 🙂 Using Mini MISTI stamping tool is the best way of doing this technique. I cut out the panel using Rectangles Dies from Our Daily Bread Designs, they are one of the Super Sponsors, too.

I colored the cup with Arteza Real Brush Pens and Spectrum Noir Sparkle Brush Pen. They are great to use for coloring and getting extra sparkle on the image at the same time! 🙂 I set it aside to dry while I was working on the card background.

First, I cut out one of the green plaid patterned papers from my stash into a strip and added it on the side of card base. Next is I cut out a green cardstock with the smallest size of the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies and added it in the center of the card. And then, I added the watercolored cup panel on top of the green panel.

For the sentiment, I stamped the phrase from Warm Hands, Warm Hearts stamp set with Rhubarb Stalk – Memento Dew Drop Ink on a white cardstock and trimmed it into sentiment strip. I added 3D foam tape just in the middle of the strip cardstock for dimensional effect to it when I glued both sides on the card.

I added some of the snow flakes sentiments to finish this card.

Winter 2017 Coffee Loving Blog Hop Day 1: Warmest Christmas Cocoa

Winter and Hot Cocoa are perfect match, don’t you agree with me? 🙂 On this card today, I am featuring the Christmas Cocoa stamp set from Joy Clair, one of the Super Sponsors.

I found a green/creme plaid paper in my stash that I used for the background. Then I created a wash of watercolored background using the Real Brush pen and die-cut it with the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies from STAMPlorations, also a Super Sponsor for this blog hop. I used 2 sizes of dies to create the frame.

I added the plaid paper on the white card base and then added the frame on top of it.

I stamped the sentiment on a white cardstock with Memento Rich Cocoa ink, die-cut it using one of the Rectangles Dies from Our Daily Bread Designs, who is also a Super Sponsor. I added some ink around the edges with sponge and then added it on the card with adhesive.

CLC Joy Clair Winter Blog Hop Day 1

I stamped and heat embossed the images with glitter embossing powder. I did it twice to get the thicker look on the embossing images. And then watercolor them with Arteza Real Brush Pens. Because I heat embossed all the images, the watercolor paint is resist. I fussy cut them with micro-tip scissors.

I added the cup with adhesive and then added the cookie on top of it with 3D foam tape. And that’s my card for today! I hope you all like it and inspired to play along with the Winter Coffee Lovers blog hop and link up party this week!
