Merry Monday #174 - Christmas Coffee

Happy Monday Stampers:
Time for a new challenge at Merry Monday and Lori is our Hostess this week and she is challenging us to Make a Christmas card with a Coffee theme. I went with the colours in the picture and did a colour wash on Very Vanilla with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and then applied some Wendy Vecchi Gold embossing paste.  I printed out the mug on Very Vanilla and the DSP.  Fussy cut the images and backed them so I could add Dimensionals to the back of the mug.  I finished off with the punched out stars and the sentiment.

Stamps: S/U's Endless Wishes, Paper Smooches Christmas Sampler, Clear Stamps - Splatters
Card: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Kaisercraft Gingerbread DSP, Gold Foil Card
Ink: Early Espresso, Tim Holtz Antique Linen, Tea Dye, Vintage Photo
Finishing Touches: Wendy Vecchi Metallic Gold E/Paste
Cool Tools: Computer and Printer, Digital Coffee Cup from Green Stockings Craft and Design, Tim Holtz Splatters Stencil THS009, Spatula, Mini Spritzer, Plastic Mat, Large and Small Star Punches, Dble Sided Tape, Dimensionals, 2 Way Glue Pen
Lovely to see you drop by.
