Let’s gather all your coffee/tea/cocoa supplies and get crafty for this fun blog hop and link up party. It will be so much fun, lots of inspirations, and also… TONS OF PRIZES to win!
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!
