A Cup of Winter Cheer




Brrrr!  In my part of the world winter is upon us.  Cold temperatures, getting dark before 5 pm, frost on my windshield all make me want to stay inside and hibernate until spring.  The things I like about winter are cooking meals in my crock pot, wearing fuzzy warm socks, and avoiding the cold by staying inside to play in my craft room.  On this cold and frosty day I made this card for the 2016 Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop
Winter 2016 Blog Hop
The quarterly Coffee Lovers Bloghop represent two of my favorite things:  coffee and card making!  For this card I used the Coffee Helps stamp set from Verve.  I used one of the sentiments stamped in white pigment ink to make the background on Crumbcake paper.  The sentiment on the front was embossed with gold embossing powder then outlined with a sparkly gold gel pen.  Wink of Stella was used on both the cup and mug for shimmer, and I used Dazzling Diamonds glitter on the whipped cream.

Recipe:
Stamps:  Coffee Helps - Verve
Paper:  WW, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
Ink:  WW Craft, Baked Brown Sugar, Versamark
Accessories:  Gold Embossing Powder, Gold Gel Pen, Heat Tool, Ribbon, Gem, Chameleon and Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers, Wink of Stella, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Verve Dies, Framelits
