Hello and Happy New Year! It’s been a while since I’ve stamped due to the hustle and bustle of the holidays. With the new year comes a fresh sense of calmness, everything throughout the holidays went off without a hitch, the house has been undecorated, and some normalcy has been restored!
Don’t you love the fresh look of the inspiration photo and sketch? And how about the suggested color palette? Ooh I love it all! The best part about the Mix It Up Challenge is that you can be inspired by the photo, the sketch, or both! Today I’ve used the photo as my inspiration:
I used the Caffeine Addict stamp set for my card. This set is perfect for so many people in my life, myself included!
I used Distress Oxide and Distress inks (Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, Gathered Twigs, Ground Espresso) to create the background paper, then cut it using the Birthday Journal Card and Card Front Element Builder SugarCuts. I added a piece of transparency behind the distressed card stock, then added some aqua colored sequins before adhering the card base. The Coffee To Go Cup SugarCuts were used to create the coffee cup.
I hope you’ll make some time to play along with us this month! We always love to see what you create, plus, there’s a $50 shopping spree for the SugarPea Designs online store to be won!
