Match The Sketch 194

September 18, 2017

The challenge at Match the Sketch this week gave me the opportunity to try out another new stamp set from the Holiday Catalogue – Hug in a Mug.  I am not usually drawn to the “coffee” style stamp set but I liked the idea of this one.  I think it will be great for decorating tags for lots of different presents, not necessarily just at Christmastime.  However, my card today does have a Christmas theme.  I embossed Whisper White card using the Cable Knit Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Cherry Cobbler card.  I cut two different designs from the Be Merry Designer Series Paper using the two largest circles from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  I attached the largest Circle to the card front.  I stamped the greeting from the Hug in a Mug stamp set onto Whisper White card using Cherry Cobbler ink and punched one end using the Triple Banner PunchI attached the greeting to the card front on top of the designer series paper circle.  I attached the second designer series paper circle so that it partially covered the end of the greeting.  I stamped the coffee mug outline using Early Espresso ink and added the “fill” using Chocolate Chip.  I also added the “steam” image using Early Espresso ink.  The coffee mug is cut out using the second smallest of the circles in the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and attached over the circles and the end of the greeting banner.

To decorate the inside of my card I stamped the greeting which is from the Hearts Come Home stamp set using Cherry Cobbler ink.

I love the play on words in the greeting on this card, don’t you?

Bye for now,
