National Hot Cocoa Day

HAPPY NATIONAL HOT COCOA DAY EVERYONE!!! We are celebrating this fun day with a collaboration blog hop.

We’re collaborating with Super Sponsor The Stamps of Life! This blog hop starts at The Stamps of Life blog!

And for this blog hop… I made 2 projects to share with you that I created using the hotchocolate2stamp set and Hot Chocolate Dies.

My first project is a hot cocoa hello card. I cut out the patterned paper with the mug die from the Hot Chocolate Dies. Then, I also cut the foam out of watercolor paper, colored it with Arteza Real Brush Pen and watercolor brush, then I added the glitter on it with glue adhesive.

I added the snowflake patterned paper on the card, and added some metallic silver watercolor paint on it and dried it. Then I cut out the frame with Double Stitched Rectangles Dies and added it on the card with permanent glue on top of the card.

I added the mug and foam on the card with 3D foam tape. I cut out the sentiment strip with Double Stitched Banner Dies, and I stamped the sentiment from the hotchocolate2stamp set with VersaFine Clair Pinecone ink pad.

My second project is the hot cocoa mug tag. I used the same stamp set and die set. I did the stamping, watercoloring, and die cutting the mug and spoon. I stamped the marshmallow on white cardstock and fussy cut them, I put them in a clear bag and tied it up with twine ribbon.
