Joyful Wishes

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I hope you're not too stressed getting ready for Thanksgiving.  I'm surprisingly calm considering the state of my house and the fact that I have 19 people coming to dinner on Thursday!  But I find it fun and wouldn't trade hosting Thanksgiving for anything.

Now on to this week's DT card for the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. 
The colors this week are:
I must admit that the colors challenged me a bit at first, but once I started on this card I almost couldn't stop coloring.  I tried making the mugs all three colors but liked it best with them all the same.  My Tranquil Tide is there - the sentiment is stamped in it and I used two layers of Tranquil Tide card stock under the stitched square.
To get the candy canes to fit in the mug I carefully used an Exacto knife right along the mug edge. 
This was a super fun card to make.  To get a little bit of sparkle, I used a Versamark pen, some Heat & Stick powder and glitter on the snowflakes.  Then I heat embossed the milk in the latte with white embossing powder.  It's little things like that which make cards fun.

This stamp and die set has so many possibilities!  It's one of my favorites.

Stamps and dies: Lawn Fawn Thanks a Latte
Dies: MFT Stitched Rectangles
Markers: Stampin' Up! Blends Cherry Cobbler Light and Dark, Mint Macaron Light and Dark, Copic markers G0000, R81, E23, E25, N0, N1

  4. Love those mugs full of yummyness! Your attention to detail is terrific, in the coloring of all the images, in the way you've inserted the candy canes in the mug, in the embossed froth, and in the way you've echoed the snowflakes on the two mugs with the embellishment snowflakes at the right side of the focal panel.
