warm wishes...

Hello!!!  Rosemary here on the blog today with a Christmas/winter inspired card.  As many of you know the Winter Coffee Lovers blog hop is in full swing and A Jillian Vance Design is a super sponsor... YAY!!  If you play along you have the chance of winning a gift certificate to the AJVD store!!!  In keeping with that my card today uses the beautiful Grandpa's Glass Cup of Love stamp and a sentiment from the Perk Up stamp set.

I started by stamping the entire image on some watercolor cardstock using VersaFine Smoky Gray ink.  I then colored the image using ZIG clean color markers in three shades of red for the cup, two shades of brown for the coffee or cocoa in the cup, yellow for the stained glass and then clean water to blend all the colors out.  Once the image was colored and completely dry I put it in my mini MISTI and stamped the image, again, using VersaMark ink, applied clear embossing powder and heat set.  The snowflake was stamped on the cup using VersaMark, white embossing powder applied and heat set.  I did the same thing for the sentiment (which is a bit hard to see so I have included a close up of the sentiment.  I die cut the piece with a Stitched Dot rectangle and then matted the image with red cardstock die cut with the largest Stitched Dot rectangle
