Caffinated Christmas Challenge July: STARS


Hello Caffinated Crafty Friends!

It is a very hot day in The Netherlands today, so to keep cool I sit in my craftroom with the airconditioner on making Christmas cards! The challenge this month is to add stars. You find the original post HERE.

For my card I used Tim Holtz stamps:

I used thecoffee mug from the  mini bluepint 9 CMS235.
I stamped it for the background and wmbossed it in white.
Colored the background next with Distress Oxide Ink Mowed Lawn.
The embossing powder resists the ink. I stamped one seprately and 
colored it with distress ink and a water pen. The star is from the 
mini blueprints 2 CMS146 and the square and sentiment is
from the new Note Quotes CMS463.
The Season Greetings is from Great Outdoors CMS321.
Small star punch for the stars on the cups.

I liked making this background so much,
that I was inspired to make my4th of July card likewise.
On the stars I added some Nuvo glitter drops.

Thank you very much for looking
and hope you have a wonderful Caffinated Summer!
