Stampin’ Up! Warm Hugs for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. Hope you are all doing well today.  If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by my blog. This week we have a Theme challenge. Be sure to take a moment to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects .
Here is our Theme for this week.

Here is my card using this Theme.

My design is from Try Stamping on Tuesday Challenge #477. Here is their sketch.

I also played along with “Just Us Girls” Word Week Challenge #556. Here is their word.

I started by adhering a panel of Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I embossed a panel of Shaded Spruce card stock using the Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folder and adhering it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I cut a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock using the largest square from the Layering Squares Dies. I cut a panel of Plaid Tidings DSP into a banner using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the Cherry Cobbler square using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted banner to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the outline mug image from the Stampin’ Up! Warm Hugs Photopolymer Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink. I stamped the mug fill image in Shaded Spruce Ink, stamped off once. I colored the inside of the mug in using my Crumb Cake Stampn’ Blends Markers. I stamped the decorative round border image from the Warm Hugs stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Warm Hugs stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink. I cut the images out using my Warm Wrapped Dies. I cut the other small panel of Whisper White cardstock using the 4th largest square from the Layering Square Dies and stamped the steam image from the Warm Hugs stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink. I adhered the die cut mug below the steam using Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals and the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the artwork to the banner using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I added a few Shaded Spruce Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Warm Hugs stamp set in Cherry Cobbler Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel. I stamped the outline mug image from the Warm Hugs stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the fill image in Shaded Spruce Ink, stamped off once, inside the outline. I stamped the steam image from the Warm Hugs stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink above the mugs. I colored the inside of the mugs in using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Cherry Cobbler mat using Stampin’ Seal and then to the inside of the Shaded Spruce card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope. I stamped the mug image from the Warm Hugs stamp set along the bottom of the envelope front the same as I did for the card.

I adhered a panel of Plaid Tidings DSP to the envelope flap.
