Happy Monday! It’s time for our Create with Connie and Mary Inspiration Monday challenge! This week’s inspiration is a fun marshmallow snowman relaxing in a cup of cocoa!
So I wanted to show you one of the big hits at my craft shows this season. A Stampin’ Up! Acetate Box filled with Starbucks Hot Cocoa and wrapped Hershey Nuggets! I love the snowman cup idea I saw online using the Let it Snow embellishments and decided to do my version of it. These make great little gifts and a gift certificate can be tucked inside if you want to give a little bit more!
- The belly band is 2 x 12 red print Let it Snow DSP.
- The Layering Circles are Coastal Cabana embossed with the Hammered Metal Embossing Folder and scallop circle cut from Early Espresso.
- The cup is cut with the Cup of Cheers dies from Whisper White cardstock.
- The face and arms are the Let it Snow Embellishments.
- The candy cane was cut with the Cup of Cheers Dies from Real Red and Whisper White and tied with White Baker’s Twine dyed Real Red.
- The tag is stamped with Enjoy in Memento Black and cut with the tag die in the Cup of Cheers Dies.
- The “cocoa” is just an oval cut and trimmed to fit the top of the mug and decorated with the little snowballs from the Let it Snow Embellishment Kit.
I think this treat worked with the Inspiration Photo perfectly, don’t you? OK…check out what Mary did with the Inspiration Monday Challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary!
