Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Helloooo!

I am back today to join the fun this month, for the Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop
Aside from coffee, I do love a giant, hot cup of liquid awesome, er..hot CHOCOLATE! I am only slightly obsessed with chocolate, so to put its beauty in liquid form, I could not refuse!


I used the fun Hug In A Mug set from My Favorite Things, and did a lot of ink blending! I started with a panel of watercolor card stock, which I find blends Distress Inks really well, and added Evergreen Bough to the bottom portion using a foam applicator. I then spritzed on water, and ink for interest. I allowed it to dry, and then stamped my sentiment at the top, using a dark brown ink.


I die cut the fun mug die, and colored it up with various pink Distress Inks. I also white heat embossed a snowflake from the set, onto the front of the mug.


When it was done, I adhered it to my panel with foam tape, and adhered a few "marshmallows" that I die cut from white card stock.

Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope you enjoy the hop!
