A Cup of Cheer …

Happy Monday Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  I am back today with my Alternative project from the 2015 July Paper Pumpkin kit … and I just love this card!

So …  How many of you guessed which was my favorite?? Yep … the “A Cup of Cheer”.  It’s just so cute, and I know I’ll will be using it a lot!


I used all the pre-cut supplies from the kit, then added just one piece of cardstock to mat the designer paper in the kit and pull out the color of my coffee cup! Stampin’ Up! has 4 extra coffee cups in our kit, that were not shown on the original card designs… so I used it!

I sponged the cup in Night of Navy … and if you think you see a bit of a pattern (you’ve got good eyes) because I originally sponged the ink over some lace ribbon to create a pattern, but it looked a little busy with the designer paper. The more solid color looks better.

I used the square punch to create little banners out of the designer pieces of “sticky” cardstock and placed them behind the cup.

So another quick and easy card done … and all from my Paper Pumpkin kit. TRY IT … It’s so much fun to get a box of creativity in your mail box each month. You can stop and start … anytime!

Tomorrow I’m off to the North America Stampin’ Up! Convention …
