Speedy's Challenge #24, Stripes!

Hello, it's Saturday you know what that means...time for another Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge...yep it's #24 and Joanne G (aka jojot) is challenging us to use stripes!

For today's challenge, I used the new Snowman Country set. The card is small, ony 4x4. I stamped the image onto white and coloured with copics. I've also added red stickles to the candy cane, and crystal effects to the berries and the buttons & eyes of the snowman. Then I cut the whole mug out. Circle/scallop nesties were used and the white center is embossed with snowflakes. I popped the mug up!

I found some cute mugs posted on SCS from Willsygirl, she had included a link to the tutorial, you can find it here. It's super easy, the mug only measures

I filled the mug with some treats, hot chocolate and mini marshmellows, I would have added a candy cane too, but I didn't have one! The sentiment on the mug is also from the Snowman Country set. Here's a great tip, I think I first learned from Faith, check out the mini ornament section of your stores, they can make great little embellishments. A great time to look is after christmas when everything is on sale...you can stock up for next year! The little candy cane is a mini ornament, I just took the little string off and used crystal effects to attach it!
