A Cup of Kindness Card

Welcome back to another card for the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

This card was inspired by the Mojo Monday #427 sketch:

and by the Verve December inspiration challenge: A Cup of Kindness:

This will make a nice card to give a package of each of the hot beverages we’re highlighting and a mug… (had it not be nearing deadline, I would have put one together, but I’ll have to do that later.)

This was my first time playing with Amplify… WoW! It really puffs up when you heat it! Cool stuff!! Once again I made my own word Cocoa from the Chocolate die and Tea from a set that had the words “Thank” and “friend” in it and just cut out the letters needed.

Sending Hugs Card With Vintage Flowers

Hello, again, crafty friends!

Today I got to play with a new layered flower stamp set from Altenew that came yesterday – just in time for today’s class on layering! I’m sure glad to have a MISTI stamping tool to use with these! Once you take the time to line them up, you can crank out several cards and save time!

I took Altenew’s inspiration photo for the September challenge: From Places Abroad – Windsor Castle, and used the royal reds and golds.

I also used Winnie & Walter’s World Cardmaking Day Sketch by Gayatri:

Putting them together, I came up with this Royal card:

I didn’t have any gold paper handy, so I just ran Versamark ink over the word ‘hugs’ after it was cut out in the metallic red cardstock and heat embossed it. I love those elegant layers of golds and reds – take a closer look:
