Cup of Kindness

Hello everyone!! After a small break, I made a few cards today. Many of you might know that 2015 Winter/Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is open now. And that today is National Cocoa day! I made a few cards to celebrate that!!


In lieu of this hop, Verve stamps has released a digi set, which is available completely free of cost, till December 25th. You can get it here. Both the cup and the sentiment in my card are from this digi set. I've always tried ti shy away from digi images in the past (though I've used them on rare occasions), now that we've bought a printer at home, I'm trying to make the most out of it. I have a lot of figuring out to do!!


I printed the sentiment and cup on white paper. I fuzzy cut and colored the cup with my marker. I used a single marker to color my cup and had to use 5 - 7 coats to get to this stage. But I'm happy with the result. I used silver glitter gel for the snowflake in the cup. I used the same glitter get to draw a thin strip on the top and bottom end of the sentiment panel.


I used grey card stock for card base. I stamped some snowflakes from Hero Arts Tree-Mendous stamp set with white and grey ink. I hope you can see the tone on tone look of the grey ink.

Thanks for stopping by. Please let me know your thoughts and suggestions.
