A Cup of Christmas Coacoa

I wanted to play with the sketch challenge over at the Retro Sketches site.  This is a great sketch to use some of your scraps of pretty patterned paper.

When I was trying to decide what to use for my focal image, I decided to combine the Retro Sketches challenge with this week’s challenge at the Paper Players, as I wanted to play along with this challenge too.  The Paper Players challenge is to feature a cup.

So I used the one “cup” image I have, which I happen to love, from the Scentsational Season set in the Holiday catalog. 

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Scentsational Season, Greeting of the Season
Ink:  Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip
Paper:  Crumb Cake, Lucky Limeade, Very Vanilla, Festival of Prints dsp stack
Embellishments:  Pearl Basic Jewels, Lucky Limeade Baker’s Twine, Naturals Designer Buttons, Holiday Collection framelits dies, 3/16″ Corner Rounder punch

  1. This is adorable! I love all the different paper patterns and the colors you chose! You are making me re-think getting this set! I didn’t think I needed it but you are changing my mind!

    • Isn’t that the way it always goes? You think you can do without something that you like until you see someone else make somthing great with it. It makes you throw that self-control right out the window. 🙂

  2. I want to come stamp with you….I love ALL your cards, but this one takes the cake…or cocoa, I should say! LOVE the sketch too! Thanks for playing with my Paper Players sketch this week!

  3. Amy, wonderful use of colors and I love the baker’s twine – the green is just the perfect shot of color for your focal image and really helps bring the greens from the background to the foreground. Fabulous card and I’m so glad you shared it with the Paper Players this week!

  4. Amy, this is awesome! I love everything you do. I’ve been an admirerer for a long time! I finally decided to just add you to my blog roll – hope you don’t mind. It was time to freshen it up a bit. Thanks for all of your wonderful inspiration!
