Mug O' Yummy Marshmallows

Hi Stampers!

Today is Inspiration Day at The Cutting Cafe! This week we were using the super fun, new file called Winter Bingo Cards. I loved this set because it comes with Bingo Cards in 3 different sizes and in both colored and non-colored versions. The colors in this set are really pretty too! I have to admit that my project is totally not what I had in mind originally when I was planning it. It kind of took on a life of it's own - LOL!

I wanted to use one of the Bingo Cards for a background panel so I ended up choosing the colored large version of the Brr Brr Brr titled card. This is a really pretty gray and blue colored so that is what I paired it with for my cardstock and paper choices. In order to make it work for my layer piece I trimmed the last two Bingo lines off. I sponged the edges and then used my paper piercer. My designer papers are from an Echo Park paper pack called Winter Wishes.

This mug of cocoa is one of my favorite images from Impression Obsession called Marshmallow Mug. My sentiment is from them too. I colored the mug using Spectrum Noir alcohol ink markers. I added dazzling diamonds to the snowman and liquid applique to the marshmallows and the snowman's fur trim. I did the liquid applique in two stages. First, I did the marshmallows because I wanted my applique to start to burn a little because it makes a nice toasty look :) I also accented the mug with white doodle dots and pearls.

Here is a close up so you can see the texture on the mug.

After I finished my basic card I thought it looked naked still so I decided to dress it up with doodle dots to give the layers some pop. Sometimes doodle dots make everything better :)

For my card layout I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch #271...

I was also inspired by this week's Can You Digi It Challenge Photo:

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to visit The Cutting Cafe Blog later this afternoon to see how all of the Design team used this awesome file :)

Happy Stampin!

This is so super cute, I find it's better to give into a design when it starts taking a life of it's own, lol. This is so great. Love the marshmellows and the little brown realistic toasty spots.


Really great winter card! Love this mug scene stamp, so cute! What you did with the marshmallows is really cool, I don't have any liquid applique but I will have to get some now! And your doodle dots are wonderful! Thank you for sharing!
