Supplies Used




Other Supplies Used
Big Shot (Sizzix)
Ultra Smooth Premium Cardstock (Crafter's Companion)
Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers- AB1, AB3, PP1, PP6, EB2, EB7, FS9 (Crafter's Companion)
Momento Tuxedo Black Ink (Tsukineko/ Imagine Crafts)
VersaMark (Tsukineko/ Imagine Crafts)
White Embossing Powder (Tsukineko/ Imagine Crafts)
Self Adhesive Flatback Pearls
Mega Runner (Xyron)

I started by stamping my images from Pink and Main's Christmas Mugs stamp set onto ultra smooth cardstock with Momento ink. I always stamp more images than I need "just in case".

Tip: can use any brand ink as long as it is dye based ink. It needs to be dye based so that the ink doesn't smear or bleed when coloring with the alcohol based markers.

I colored my images using my Illustrator Markers.

Cup on the LEFT I used:
AB1, AB3, PP1, PP6, & FS9

Cup on the RIGHT I used:
PP1, PP6, EB2, EB7, & FS9

Once my images were colored, I cut them out using the matching Christmas Mugs Dies.

Then I die cut Rinea's Star Struck Mocha Brown foil paper from the Autumn Variety Pack using Pink and Main's Scalloped Circle and Large Bow Dies.

These are just too cute and so much fun to make. And when cutting them with Rinea's foil paper you can curve and mold them for added dimension and the will stay!How cool is that?!!

Then, to make the background to my card I used Pink and Main's Layered Stripes Dies and cut each layer to the background in different colors. The thick lines in aqua, the medium in pink, and the thin lines in a chocolate brown.

I adhere them together using my Xyron mega runner starting with the thickest stripe at the bottom and working my way to the thinnest stripe on top. Then mounted my background stripes onto an A2 sized card made from white cardstock.

I stamped my sentiment onto more chocolate brown cardstock using a Versamark ink pad and covered it with white embossing powder. Then heat set it, cut it into a flag, and mounted it over the top of the card.

Then lastly, I attached the scallop circle and bow onto the front of my card. I used foam adhesive dots to adhere my little mug and attached little flatback pearls in the center of each scallop.

And here is my finished card...

I hope you enjoyed my card for today!
