Mistletoe Coffee

You know the rare times (for me at least) that you create something and its exactly the way you saw it in your mind? Well this one layer card is EXACTLY how I pictured it and you can’t imagine how pleased I am with myself!😊 Doesn’t mean that I don’t like everything I do, they often come out differently than what I intended that’s all, sometimes not at all the look I had in mind, but luckily most of the time, they’re still quite nice!😅

I just ordered some stamps from Create A Smile, a German stamp company. I love that there is a German company that makes stamps and dies as good as the Americans as 1) I can buy local and 2) I can save TONS on shipping costs! I got these just for the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop which ends today, so I was relieved when it finally arrived yesterday! I thought it would be funny to have this cute hedgehog offer a cup of coffee under the mistletoe, cause let’s be honest, sometimes you just need a good steaming cup of coffee before a kiss!

The hedgehog actually comes from their “Doctor’s Helpers” set which features “get well” stamps and I know I will be using these stamps often as Germans stay home a week, under doctor’s orders, when they are sick, even if its just a cold!! They are obsessed really careful about not wanting to pass on germs. In France, unless they have a fever, you leave your child in school and you go to work even if you are sick. I have to say I much prefer the German way!!

The mistletoe comes from their “Festive Foliage” set which I will definitely be using to create a Christmas wreath soon.  I stamped both stamps with clear Versamark ink and heat embossed with a clear Wow Embossing powder. I then coloured the whole thing with my Zig clean color real brushes as I was too lazy to fill my water jar to use my “real” watercolour paints! The sentiment from Pinka nd main was stamped with Versafine black ink. I sprinkled some white acrylic paint on it and it was done! I tried adding a red ribbon to the top but I much prefer it without it, which do you prefer?
