I decided to make a package of hot chocolate. I filled a pastry bag with hot chocolate and attached a tag with some orange and red polka dot ribbon. I started the tag off by coloring a prestamped image of Coffee Riley by Hanna stamps. I colored him in with my copics, markers and pencils. I then adhered him to some pink DP and green card stock. For the tag itself, I cut out two tag shapes using my Cricut machine out of two different kinds of DP (some of the flowers are red, but it is hard to tell in the picture!). I then threaded through my ribbon and added three blue brads. Quick and simple! Just what I need for the holidays.
My final project for today is a good old fashioned card!!! And, drum roll please, it is a boy card! This card was made using the sketch for Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge.
I cannot wait to give this card to my nephew Patrick for Christmas. I just love the little belly on this stamp!! So cute! Okay so I started this card off by stamping Sugarplums Pajama Christopher and the tree and presents from Sugarplums Christmas Scene both by All That Scraps on white card stock and colored them in with my markers and copics. I cut out Christopher and the presents and used my nesties to cut out the tree. I then layered all four images on top of each other, popping Christopher off the background. I then cut out green and blue card stock with my nesties and adhered them to my image. Following the sketch I layered brown, blue and green card stock as well as two different kinds of DP. I added a piece of brown ribbon and some brown brads. I really hope that Patrick likes it!
Before I sign off today I wanted to answer a question I received in my comments section. One of my wonderful blog visitors asked me "when you say that you colored your image in with your markers and copics did you mean that you used different ones for different parts or are you using them in conjunction with one another." This is such a great question and I am sorry for the confusion. I actually use my stampin' up markers and my copics in conjunction with one another. I find that if I don't have the right copic color, one of my stampin' up markers will fit the bill so I use it to create shadows with and my copics to blend. I hope that answers your question.
Have a wonderful rest of the weekend and thanks for stopping by!!
