Hello! I don't find myself with much time to create "just for me" or participate in challenges like I used to. I LOVE challenges. They were how I really got started with DT's and getting to know the stamping community. There are TONS of online challenges that make it FUN to design!
I've had this Hug in a Mug stamp and die set by Laina Lamb Design from My Favorite Things on my desk for literally 2 months. I've been following all the wonderful challenges MFT has on their challenge blog for quite some time and never have played along. Until now.
When I saw this week's Color Challenge, I could not resist pairing it with this awesome stamp and die set from Laina Lamb Design called Hug in a Mug. The details in this die set are amazing! There are mini marshmallows, whipped cream, stitched heart, and many more!
I used a stitched die from Blueprints 13 to trim a piece of pattern paper from the Painted Prints: Smitten collection and added that to a top folding notecard. Using Wild Cherry cardstock, I die cut the largest heart from the Stitched Heart STAX. From Cotton Candy and Summer Splash cardstock, I die cut the mugs. I added die cut hearts from the die set using Wild Cherry cardstock. A few mini marshmallows and steam were added with white and light grey cardstock. My banner was die cut from Blueprints 16 and my sentiment was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black. A few Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh were added to embellish the mugs.
Thanks for sharing a part of your day with me!
