Well here it is Day 2 and I love what Shari Carroll shared about creating your own stamp out of a die. I knew what I wanted to do but wasn't sure how to lay it out till I saw this MUG
Then I knew. This card kit from Oct of 2014 is really getting a work out which is good because it means I am getting my monies worth. So many endless possibilities .. all you need is a little imagination and techniques from online card class. :D

 So the middle cup is my foam stamp I made out of my die.

and the brown and green cups are the stamped images with memento ink bamboo and rich cocoa from the foam stamp. I made little tags and tied them on after I used lawn fawn Milo ABC stamps... these are great for creating your own sentiments or words.. and everything is all matchy matchy ... :D 

 here is the inside of my card which pretty much sums me up every morning... but I thought it would be a cute card to send to a friend who needs my ear. 

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enJOYed.


  1. Saw that mug on Pinterest and thought, "That is SO me!" Great card idea!!

  2. Great "Good-morning-mug"-card. Who wanna take a cup of coffee? :-)

    I have just one little note: The peeking green cup in the opening of the red cup is irritating me... and destroys the dimensional look a little bit. Do you have a cut-piece of the cup to put it in there as "inside"? Or can you remove a little bit of the red edge (then the green stamp is "in front" of the red edge) to imitate the dimension?

    The last 12 days (time of class) I didn't find enough time to visit all the amazing OCC-participant-blogs - but now I will catch up. Better late than never! :-)
