Hug in a Mug Hot Chocolate Card

I have a super quick card to share today using the Hug in a Mug stamp set. If you don’t have this set then this design can be very easily changed to suit any image or sentiment that you want to use.

I took a Thick Whisper White card blank made from card measuring 14.5 x 21cm, scored and folded at 10.5cm. I then took a piece of the Quilted Christmas DSP Stack in Real Red and cut a piece 14.5cm x 4.5cm and adhered this to the front of the card using Fast Fuse Adhesive. To finish the basic card I added a strip of Real Red cardstock across the top of the patterned paper.

Next stamp the hot chocolate mug from the Hug in a Mug set onto Whisper White. Use Real Red and Early Expresso ink to add the details. Cut out the image using the Layering Circles Framelits and mount onto a Real Red scalloped circle cut from the same set.

Stamp the sentiment onto the front of the card using Memento Tuxedo black ink. Next take the Versamark ink and the chocolate drop stamp and randomly stamp across the white section of the card, this adds a very subtle detail which I’m not sure is clear in the photos.

To finish the card take the scalloped circle topper and stick to the card using Stampin’ Dimensional’s. Add a little Clear Wink of Stella to add a little sparkle.

Hope you have enjoyed me cards for Cups and Coffee week. Join me tomorrow for another Stampin’ Up! project.

Pastel “Thanks a Latte” Card

Today I’m back with another card using the Hug in a Mug stamp set making a very girly pastel card using Powder Pink, Sweet Sugarplum, and Pool Party, if we still had Mint Macaron then I would have used that too!

First take a piece of Powder Pink cardstock measuring 14.5cm x 21cm and fold and score at 10.5cm to create a card base. Take the Powder Pink ink and randomly stamp the small twinkling star all over the front of the card base.  Continue reading “Pastel “Thanks a Latte” Card”

Sending Warm Thoughts Card

This card is very appropriate for today because warm thoughts and cosy drinks are just what we need in this house. We have one poorly mama and one poorly boy and one little monkey bouncing with energy, so I would love someone to come over and make me a lovely soothing drink.

So if you need a quick card to send to when someone is ill or just to let them know you’re thinking of them then this card and the Hug in a Mug stamp set is perfect.

First take some Whisper white cardstock measuring 14cm x 10cm and run through the Bigshot with the Cable Knit Dynamic Embossing Folder. Take some of the Quilted Christmas 1/4″ Ribbon and fasten across the card in a cross pattern as shown above. Mount this layer onto a card base measuring 14.5cm x 10.5cm using Fast Fuse Adhesive.

Next take the largest Stitched Shaped Oval Framelit and cut it out of Whisper White, then take the corresponding scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits and cut that out of Real Red.

Use Memento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the greeting and cup outline and some steam. Take the inner cup stamp and ink with garden green, stamp off once onto scrap paper and then stamp in the cup outline. Finish the stamping by stamping a Real Red heart into the middle of the cup. To add a little sparkle I coloured the cup with the Clear wink of Stella brush.

For the inside of the card I just stamped the cup image again onto Whisper White cardstock measuring 14cm x 10cm. I love how versatile the Hug in a Mug stamp set is, the comforting sentiments and cute little mugs make it a great set to pick up for all year round.

Thanks for popping by today, I’m now off to hibernate in my duvet until tomorrow.
