You Warm My Heart ~ November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

After that it's gone, gone, gone!

Our stamp set for November is called You Warm My Heart. It has SO MANY cute images and great sentiments, too. The pretty cup really caught my eye so that's what I decided to create with today. Now I have a cup of cocoa on my mind. 

The pattern for my card came from our How-To Book called Make It from Your Heart, Vol. 4, Pat. 9. Starting with a pattern makes creating so easy! All that design thinking is done for you and with the cutting guide all you have to do it get busy cutting!

I used paper from our new pack called Jingly Joy. That's the plaid you see in the middle of the card. The flower borders you see at the top and bottom were made by stamping the flower on Scarlet cardstock. I love how that flower stamp mimics the flowers on the cup.

When I stamped the cup I did a little stamp rolling. First I inked in Scarlet then rolled the edges in Black ink. The touch of darker ink around the edges helps give some dimension to the cup. After stamping I fussy cut it out and used some foam tape when placing it on the hexagon. 

The black you see is all glitter paper which gives some nice sparkle to the design. I used a Black Shimmer Brush to spatter the  plaid paper then added some Stickles dots to bring it all together.

Only available during November!
