SugarPea Designs ~ Mix It Up Challenge #51

Hi there! Have you played along with the Mix It Up Challenge at SugarPea Designs yet? This challenge is so much fun because you can play along with the sketch, the inspiration photo, or both! Plus, there’s a suggested color palette to work with too! Who wouldn’t be inspired by a photo of a cozy blanket and a warm cup of coffee? Anyone in the deep freeze happening right now surely would, myself included!! Check it out:

I chose to use the Caffeine Addict stamp set along with the Large Striped CoverPlate for my card. I began with a piece of watercolor paper and applied Distress Oxide Inks in Faded Jeans, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain. Then I spritzed on some water and dabbed it off with a paper towel. I colored the coffee cup with Copics (B91, B95, B97), then fussy cut it and applied it to the center of the circle. One of my favorite parts of this stamp set is the little heart that can be added to the center of the cup of coffee, just like in those fancy coffee shops! I added the sentiment in dark brown ink, and done!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you’ll make time to join us this month (plus, there’s a prize to be won!).
