1 stamp, 3 ways - christmas coffee

The new Essentials by Ellen Holiday release makes me so happy! Julie and Brandi have designed such amazing stuff, I want to make SO many cards that I almost don't know where to start! So this week I'm getting started with 3 cards using the Tree Farm set.
I love so many things about this set but I decided to start with the cute little cup...
To create this card, start with the sentiment. I combined two sentiment stamps by coloring just the part I wanted with a Memento marker.


Next stamp a smattering of cups (I just wanted to use the word smattering.)

Watercolor the cups in a ombre-rainbowy fashion. I used Distress inks, because they are easy to blend and I love my multi-tasking supplies.

Apply "whipped cream" Nuvo drops to the tops of each cup, and some "snowflake" dots.
Sprinkle with glitter while wet.

And ta-da!

Hope you're having a great Tuesday!
