Introducing Merry Mug, Say It Simply: You & Yours, and Sweet Stitching

Good morning, friends! Today begins my favorite time of the year; it's Christmas time! Well, it's Christmas time in the world of stamping anyway, and this year is going to be very merry indeed. Today, I'm sharing a card that uses three new products from the September release (available on the Papertrey Ink website at 10pm on 9/15). You're getting a peek at my Merry Mug set and Dawn's Say It Simply: You & Yours die and her Sweet Stitching collection. Let's get to it!


I began by impressing the Sweet Stitching plate into a piece of Classic Kraft cardstock using the embossing plate sandwich (for my Cuttlebug that is an A plate, a metal shim, a B plate, the Sweet Stitching Plate, my cardstock, the embossing pad mats, and finally another B plate). I added a few stamped details using the coordinating Sweet Stitching stamp set and adhered it to a white card base.


Next, I stamped and die cut the mug from Merry Mug using Aqua Mist sponged with Ocean Tides and Pure Poppy sponged with Scarlet Jewel to add depth. Then, I sponged the whipped topping image with Fine Linen ink and stamped it onto white cardstock. I only did the sponging around the edges to add a hint of definition before die cutting it. I added the sprinkles in Pure Poppy and embellished them with red glitter for some festive sparkle. I also stamped and die cut the holly before assembling the mug on the card front using a mix of flat and foam adhesives.


Then, I die cut the Say It Simply: You & Yours greeting from Pinefeather cardstock. I stacked a few die cuts to get dimension, but I cut away the areas that would overlap the mug. I absolutely love that big, bold sentiment die!

Thank you so much for joining me today! I'll be back tomorrow with even more of the September release. In the meantime, AmyBetsy, Dawn, Heather, Kelly, Laurie, Melissa B, Melissa P, Michelle, and Stephanie all have beautiful projects to share. See you soon!

Hi Lizzie! Your card is wonderful!! I love how you incorporated all of the newest products into one design, it's so festive! I looked VERY hard to see the darker inks you sponged with- on your mug, but you achieved great depth for sure. I'm going to try your color combo, because I'm so intrigued. Thank you for a beautiful post. Btw, I LOVE your forest floor designs, I'm still trying to purchase your AWESOME mushroom! Happy Monday to you! :)
