Grab a Cup – November Release Challenge!

Good morning all, hope you all are having a great week!!  Can't believe we only have a little over 2 weeks until Thanksgiving, where has the year gone??  We are celebrating my oldest grandson's birthday this weekend, he will be 11!

It is Release Week at Flourishes and to kick things off  they are inviting you to “Grab A Cup and be inspired by this fantastic photo as you create something equally warm and inviting.

While enjoying a hot cup of coffee, I was thinking about a beautiful snowy afternoon watching ice skaters on a frozen pond!  My first thought Vintage Postcard Stamp Set from Flourishes!  I love this set it is just beautiful. I decided to cut my card to make it look as though you are looking out the window while enjoying that hot cup of coffee.

I stamped my image with black ink and colored with copic markers.  I stamped a second image and embossed with Sprinkle N Sprinkle Green Marble Christmas embossing powder.  This is a beautiful embossing powder with all that pretty gold sparkle. Cut your window into 1" squares and layer onto black cardstock.  I then cut out around the frame area and used it as the window frame.  Using foam adhesive dots on the frame place on top of the colored image.  I glittered the image with Sparkling Snow.                                                                                                         

I would love to be enjoying a nice cup of coffee looking at this beautiful scenery, make you feel all warm inside!

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by and remember....Keep Stamping!!
