Hug in a Mug! ...

Serious question: back in the days before coffee, did people just basically die? ~Keith Wynn, @ravenrhapsodies

Good morning!

Today is my Day 1 and I cannot tell you just how excited to participate this year as a Growing in Unity Gal! It’s tough to get spots and I seem to manage about every other year but that’s ok! I am so blessed to have the opportunity to share my cards made with Unity Stamps!

I made 4 cards today using a fun sentiment set called It’s a Mug Hug … so many great sentiments along with a fun mug image which is perfect for paper piecing!





I did leave the fluff on mine plain because I have still trying to decided it I want to enhance it with white flower soft or liquid diamonds ... 

Also, I did manage to get all 4 images from one 6 x 6 sheet of design paper. I just used my stamping platform and turned to cardstock for each image. Worked perfectly!

Supplies
Sentiment set: “It’s a Mug Hug” from Unity Stamp Company
  • Cardstock from Pen+Gear
  • Design paper from Unity Stamp Company
  • Memories India Ink
  • Red Manga Pen
  • Sequins from Close to My Heart (silver) and stash
Unity Stamp Company is a small family-owned business and although they ship world-wide, their high-quality rubber stamps are proudly made in the U.S.A. They even make custom stamps! So, check out their store. You’ll be hooked f you aren’t already!

These four cards are awesome! And you've reminded me that I have this stamp set and I *gasp* don't think I've inked it up yet! Must get on that! I love the idea of paper-piecing the mug!
