It's National Cocoa Day! For at least... another 55 minutes. Hehe I do love to procrastinate!
I was scurrying just as quick as I could to link up a card, and I have to say
I LOVE what I was able to pump out!
The Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is in full swing, but today we are paying homage to our friends who may think java boasts a little too much bitterness and like something a little sweeter - hot cocoa!
I adoooooore hot cocoa! Right now I have a stash of salted caramel hot chocolate K-cups just waiting to be savored on holiday mornings.
For my card, I used a freebie digital image by STAMPlorations, which you can nab HERE.
I colored it up with my Spectrum Noir Markers (DS1, DS4, DS6, DS7, TN2, TN3) and decided to make some "whipped cream" with my Claudine Helmuth Blank Canvas acrylic paint. It creates such great texture
I used the current color scheme from Cupcake Inspirations challenge.
I love the blue and red color pairing - it's so merry and wintry without being traditionally
red and green
Isn't it adorable?! The sentiment is from a set that I actually designed all by myself for STAMPlorations - It's called Caffeinated Christmas.
Coffee, tea, hot cocoa - this stamp set covers all the bases!
I added a bunch of embellies to my card, and included some sequins because JUGS challenge told me to do it. I always forget about my sequin stash, so THANK YOU Just Us Girls for making me pull them out.
So that's my card! I started going through and doing some commenting and want to thank everyone who has left me a comment thus far.
**GIVEAWAY ALERT**In honor of National Cocoa Day, I have a cocoa-themed gift basket that is going to go to one lucky person.
