Chock Full 'o Love

Yes, I know it's a month past Valentine's Day but honestly that's about how back logged I am on my stamping work! :-) I've been working with the justjohanna design team, which is great fun, but it's been so busy that I've had little time to stamp or post, so my apologizes for having perhaps the most boring blog around! LOL!

Today's card was created using justjohanna's giant mug (she also has a handy, dandy tea cup), dotty border, and love is brewing stamps. One of the things I love about this mug image is how versatile it is; for my card I paper pieced the design inside the mug image but you could also simply color the image (it's an outline of the mug), stamp inside the mug image with other fun images...the possibilities are endless!

It's difficult to see in the photo but I used a stylus to indent all of the polka dots on the mug, which is a nice contrast to the raised bumps on the teal circle the mug is sitting on. Paper is from SU!...one of my favorite release of pattern paper, which was never added to the regular catalog...too bad, I love it! And for some "steam" from my mug...a wee bit of iridescent gift packaging stringy things (I have no idea if there's an official name for that stuff!)

Enjoy!

Cute card, Kim. I don't think it's too Valentine's-y. I think it would be a fun bridal shower or anniversary card.
