Richly Blessed

Isn't this Minty Coffee mug just adorable? I saw it at Stamping Bella and just had to have it. I stamped it with Tuxedo Black (Memento) onto Prism Irridescent cryogen white, and colored it with copics and added Christmas Red Stickles to the berries.

The Irridescent paper has a beautiful subtle sparkle to it, and the copics work wonderfully on it. It's perfect for a hint of bling. LOVE it!!

Now, of course I had to use my new Label II Nestabilities too. It's such a fun shape. To add a bit of depth, I sponged Brushed Corduroy (Ranger Distress Ink) around the edges a bit while the diecut was still in the template.

The leaves and punched border are Martha Stewart Punches, the sentiment is by Verve (They have the most awesome sentiments, and use the most gorgeous fonts!!)

The ribbon is SU and was a gift from my dear friend Laurie. And finally, the berry in the leaves is an icon rhinestone, and the black pearls are Kaisercraft.

I really appreciate your stopping by today! I hope you are enjoying your weekend!
Happy Stamping!
Tosh

Just gorgeous, Tosh! I love this image...how perfect is it with that sentiment! Love it!

Gigi said...

Tosh, thank goodness there are some stampers who actually will sponge ink on paper while it's still in the die...ha ha!! I was getting worried that my sponging wasn't as nice as the air brushing work done by some very talented stampers. This card is gorgeous, but which one of yours isn't?

Juliana said...
