Paper Players 116

DSCF8773-001

Happy Sunday everyone!  Brrrr….we certainly went from warm to wild weather in a hurry this weekend!  I know some of my blogging friends had snow this week!  Oh my!  Well, I am the hostess this week at the Paper Players, and I have a nice warm challenge for you:  Cup of Joy!

We want to see a cup of some sort on your card….and you won’t want to miss what the designers at the Paper Players came up with this week…you’ll love them!  Personally, I cannot start my day  without a cup of coffee!!!  Or two or three!   In the winter, I love chai tea in the afternoon with a splash of French vanilla creamer—yum!  How about you?  What’s your favorite cup? For my card,  I started my creation with the sketch from the PaperCraft Crew this week:

Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch

and pulled out my Scentsational Season set:

PP116-LeAnne

There were a couple of very cute cards in the Paper Players gallery last week using this paper, so I whipped mine out too!  The mug is stamped in Riding Hood Red, with the “steam” heat embossed with Iridescent Ice on vellum.  It’s really hard to see but looks cool IRL!

I added some punched stars from the Merry Minis punch pack, and tacked on a couple of tags fastened with a glimmer brad and some baker’s twine!  The whole shebang is atop a Labels Framelit that was embossed with the oval Designer Frame EF….I love how it fits so nicely in that framelit!  I added a pretty sentiment from More Merry Messages on the inside, along with a few more stars!

  2. LeAnne - I love this! I need to break that paper out and use it too. And, I've been checking out your vellum steam - which I'm swooning over - how did you attach it? Simply by sticking it into your cup? I don't see any glue spots, which is one reason I don't use vellum very often!

  3. Hi LeAnne, oh so it got cold there? Sorry to hear that. I have my party this afternoon and it is windy and cold. I love your card. Very cute and it looks like Cassie is saying ouch these rocks hurt my butt! LOL!
    Have a great day. Hugs, Bev

  7. Well this cup of "hot chocolate for me" would warm anyone who's chilly this weekend. I love how you did the steam on vellum. Very creative layer for your cup to rest on too. I love this warm creation of yours. We're off to our family Thanksgiving gathering and then another tomorrow. Have a blessed weekend.

  8. Firstly, thanks for such a fun challenge theme this week LeAnne!
    Secondly, LOVE your card. The red/blue/vanilla palette is awesome & the sparkly steam off your cup is so clever. The cup sits so nicely within the frame, surrounded by the cluster of stars & sentiments - it just makes me feel all warm & cosy. Then, to top it off, you have layered it all on that fab print! :)

  9. This is so adorable. We are at the cabin freezing. It was snowing when we got here. It is quite cozy right by the fire.
    Your card is adorable and makes me want a nice hot cup of coco right now. To bad I didn't bring any. This is our last visit this year. The water will get turned off on Tuesday.
    So Cassidy moved on from water to rock. LOL She is so sweet.
