A Full Mug - GIU Day 4

The June 2014 Kit of the Month is called -- "In Love with Love"-- and I am definitely in love with all 18 stamps !! It's no secret that I also love coffee so I chose the Full Mug sentiment and image for today's card.

I stamped the mug's image twice then colored some of the mugs and cut them out to layer on top of the image that I had stamped on patterned paper. I used some Faber-Castell Whipped Spackle and a Tim Holtz Doily stencil on the right side of the patterned cardstock by Momenta. I sprinkled some Donna Salazar "Sugar Shimmer" Fairy Dust Glitter  over the wet spackle. The border at the top of the card and the red and yellow flowers were cut out from an old calendar. I used some Tim Holtz washi at the top of the border. I then stamped the saying on the left side of the card. Maya Road Twine Cording in Sweet Candy complete the card. 

A Full Mug Makes Everything Better

Whipped Spackle with Glitter, Paper-pieced Mugs

I have been loving playing with embossing pastes and the whipped spackle that I used on this card.Textures and layers always seem to add so much to a project. I have many stencils that I can't wait to play with. Once again, thank you for visiting Meticulosity. I always welcome your comments and it inspires me to try new techniques and perfect others.
