Hot Sip ~ Hot Cocoa Style

Hello everyone!

I'm back today sharing my last card in my Hot Sip series. 



This time I envisioned a fun Christmas shaker card.  With some sequins, no-hole beads, mini jingle bells and a sparkly gingerbread man, this card comes to life!  I really wanted this to look like a hardy cup of cocoa so I embossed it using JudiKins Rustique Patina Bronze Embossing Powder to make it look like a stone mug and adding chocolate shavings on top of the whipped cream make this hot cocoa extra yummy!

Here is a list of goodies used to make this card:

Hot Sip from DoveArt Studios, My Minds Eye Lost & Found: Union Square, JudiKins Rustique Patina Bronze Embossing Powder, JudiKins Espresso Speckles, Creme Crepe Paper Streamer, Frayed Burlap Distress Ink, Antique Linen Distress Marker, AMuse Studio Latte Ink, Clear Embossing Powder, Stampendous Silver Crushed Glass Glitter, Creative Impression's Cream Crepe Ribbon, AMuse Pearls: Latte, EK Success Zizag Chain Edger Punch, Recollections Glitter Gingerbread Man, Make It Christmas Jingle Bells, Doodlebug Design Lily White Sequins, Silver & Clear No-holed beads, Tulip Snow Cap White Dimensional Fabric Paint, Spellbinder's Classic Rectangles {Lg.} ~

Happy Stamping!

Hot {Brew} Sip

Hi everyone!

As promised, I wanted to share with you the second card in my Hot Sip series.




Just by changing a few decorative elements I was able to create a vintage style halloween card.  Once again I used Spellbinders Labels 17 die set but turned the card vertically, which I think gives the card a different feel.  This time I added vintage glass glitter to the edges and to the whipped cream.  The spider adds a little extra spookiness to the brew.  Of course, you need some drippy goo, webbing and some bling to finish off the card.  This card makes me very happy!  I hope you love my card as much as I loved making it!

Here is a list of products used on Hot Brew Sip:

Hot Sip from DoveArt Studios, Martha Stewart Drippy Goo Border Punch, Black Crepe Streamer, Black Eyelash Yarn, Art Glitter Vintage Glass Glitter: Floragold, Black Soot Distress Ink, Frayed Burlap Distress Ink, AMuse Studio Latte Ink, Clear Embossing Powder, Creative Impressions Black Web Ribbon, Antique Linen Distress Marker, We R Memory Keepers Black Widow 6 x 6 Paper Pad, Spellbinders Labels 17 Die Set, Tulip Snow Cap White Dimensional Fabric Paint, EK Success Black Gems, The Rubber Cafe Jellie Dots, Making Memories Spooky Alley Spider Brad ~

Happy Stamping!

Using the new Hot Sip stamp from DoveArt Studios I have created this beautiful card! 



  I have totally fallen in love with the new Hot Sip stamp; so much so that I ended up making three different cards.  The other two cards I will show later.  When I first saw the Hot Sip stamp, my mind went crazy with ideas.  The stamp is extremely versatile and can be used for so many different occasions.  I knew it would look great stamped on this paper from My Minds Eye and when I paired it with the Spellbinders Labels Seventeen Die I instantly fell in love with this shabby chic inspired design.  I also used the thank you stamp from DoveArt Studios Simply Sweet Sentiments.  I really like the delicate font of this stamp.  To make the ruffle match the paper I sprayed a white crepe paper streamer using an airbrush machine and a Copic BG32 marker.  I wanted to add some whipped cream to my delicious latte so  I added some Snow Cap White Dimensional Fabric Paint from Tulip and jazzed it up with a sprinkling of glitter.  I hope you love this card as much as I do!!!

Here is a list of other products I used to make this card:

MFT Die-Namics Fishtail  Flag Stax dies, Memory Box's Meridian Border Die, Donna Salizar's Pralines & Cream Fairy Dust Glitter, Versamark Ink, White Embossing Powder, Stamp-a-ma-jig, A-Muse Studio Latte Ink, Clear Embossing Powder, Antique Linen Distress Marker, Hero Arts 3mm Pearls, Zig Squeeze & Roll Glue Pen, 3M Foam Tape & Martha Stewart Rose Quartz Glitter Eyelash Yarn ~

My fun question to you, for your chance to win one of the wonderful prizes of a NEW release stamp, a random stencil and die is: Where is your favorite place to drink your "Hot Sip" of choice? Mine is Paris ~ Ooh La La!

Winter Chickadee

Happy Friday!

This Winter Chickadee stamp from DoveArt Studios is the perfect stamp if you are in need of a quick and easy card to make and is perfect for any occasion.


The Winter Chickadee fits perfectly into the opening that I created.  I popped up the card front on top of the image which gives the card dimension without a lot of bulk.  I added a sentiment from C.C. Designs Thanks a Bunch Sentiments and some rhinestones and there you have it; a quick and easy card that looks elegant.
