Free For All Friday ~ November Release Focus!

Today we bring you another round of inspiration created with our brand new November Release Stamp sets from the Senior Design Team. We had so much fun with them we just couldn’t stop making cards! It’s our chance to show them off at least one more time while you can still purchase the November Stamp Bundle at a discount! Today is the last day the discount is available and we don’t want you to miss out!

Howdy all!  In honour of all the chilly weather we're having around here in Alberta, I decided to go for that "winter sweater feel" for today's creation...
My card base is made from "Smoky" cardstock from the Cool Neutrals Color Made Easy collection.  Then I stitched some cool patterned papers together and matted them using "Thunder" cardstock from the same cardstock collection.

I stamped my coffee cup from the new "Grab a Cup" stamp set onto some diamond patterned paper and also some Classic White Cardstock amd fussy cut out all the coffee cup pieces.  I coloured in my lid and coffee wrap using the following Copic Collections:
On the wrap part of my cup image, I used some Memento "London Fog" ink and stamped some of the damask diamonds from the "So Distressed" stamp set.  I also stamped some chevrons using the same ink in the corner of the blue and white polka dot paper...

I finished off my card with a simple double bow using some beautiful "Delft Blue" seam binding ribbon and metal die snowflake charm.

For the inside of my card, I used a subtly coloured patterned paper and stamped my sentiment from the "Grab a Cup" stamp set in Memento "Tuxedo Black" ink and then some more chevrons from the "So Distressed" stamp set using Memento "London Fog" ink again.

For my card front design today, I used the latest sketch from the Mojo Monday blog, #320:

Thanks for stopping by everyone!  For everyone who has begun to experience those cold winter days, stay warm!

So hop on over to see what cozy and warm creations everyone has in store for you today:
Happy hopping!
