Nice Cuppa: a Beautiful Way to Celebrate Mom

I'm getting an early start on Mother's Day with this card. I didn't actually plan to be done so early, but I was playing with the Cups and Kettles dies and the Nice Cuppa stamp set and the Timeless Textures Stamp Set (love those coffee ring stains!) and this card just sort of came together. 

This card has a lot on it - hey, its for Mom, right?! 
Nothing's too good for Mom on Mother's Day. 

Most of the background is stamped in Crumb Cake Ink, but a few of the splotches are gold embossed (gotta have sparkle!) and for added pretties I added a few random pearls.

Do you like how shiny the cup is?  And see how the letters are raised?
*First stamp the words in White Craft Ink and heat emboss with white embossing powder
*Then cover the whole cup with Versamark Ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder
Looks just like a ceramic mug right?

This is the  list of the papers and Inks I used  - keep reading to see info on the stamps

When I saw these two stamp sets in the Spring Occasions catalog I knew right away this was "must have". for me.  Just think what you can do with these dies. Invitations and Thank-You's.

And look how versatile the die set is: it has a coffee cup and a mug and even has silverware.

Here's another project I did with these dies - I helped run an event where we were ordering in lunch and people had to make their lunch choices.  We put this sign on the table to identify where people should be placing their lunch orders.

Thanks for Stopping by: Take a minute and browse previous posts. If you see anything you like I'm happy to help you get the product or just to consult and explain further how the project was made . . . its all about having fun with our hobby.
