National Cocoa Day with The Stamps of Life

Thursday, December 13, 2018


Happy National Cocoa Day!!  To celebrate, the Coffee Loving Cardmakers are collaborating with The Stamps of Life with a super fun blog hop! You've just come from the amazing Dana Warren's blog...


Be sure to stop by each Designer's blog (full list on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog) by December 20th and leave a comment to win a $25 gift certificate!  Winner will be announced on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog at 9:00 am Eastern on December 22nd.


 For my first project, I created a tiered card.  I first layered woodgrain pattern paper onto the base.  Using the Hot Chocolate dies, I cut different Christmas-y pattern papers and for the whipped cream cut glittery cardstock.  The spoons were cut from shiny gold cardstock and tied with gingham ribbon.  You can't have cocoa without marshmallows!  These images plus and sentiment are from the hotchocolate2stamp set!


For my next project, I created a fun, shaker card!


 Inside the shaker, I first stamped the sentiment from the hotchocolate2stamp then placed the marshmallow images from the
same set and added clear sequins.


 I love the Hot Chocolate dies!  There are 'outline' dies included for some of the shapes - including the cup - which I used here and I really like the look.  Again, I cut the whipped cream from white glitter cardstock, the 'steam' was cut from vellum and the spoons from shiny silver cardstock.


Hope you enjoy the hop and get lots of inspiration!  Remember to leave a comment along the way -- good luck!!  Next on the hop is the remarkably talented Lisa Bzibziak...
