Like a Hug in a Mug

After an unusually warm fall here in New England, it's finally turning colder (I'm happy! some people aren't?!)  and our minds are turning to warm winter beverages!

I pulled out the wonderful Cozy Cup stamps and dies  as well as the Coaster die for my card today - all from the Greetery!

I stamped and die cut the images and die cut the coaster - then I sponged over all the edges with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.  I layered all the images over a panel of Wood Panel designer paper, stamped the sentiment from Hug in a Mug set from SU and added red acrylic hearts.  The saucer and foamed cocoa are up on foam dots.

I'm linking my card to:

Stamps:  Cozy Cup - The Greetery, Hug in a Mug - SU.

Paper:  Water color paper - Canson Cold Press, DP Wood Textures - Craft Consortium.

Ink:  Archival Distress Vintage Photo and Faded Jeans - Ranger, Ranger Distress Frayed Burlap, Versafine Clair Nocturne.

Accessories:  Cozy Cup and Coaster dies - The Greetery, finger dauber, acrylic red hearts - Honey Bee Stamps, foam dots.

Love this coaster and the design on the cup of hot chocolate! I'm always fascinated with the designs they can make in those hot drinks!
