Cup of Cocoa Template:

Want to have some more fun. Here is a free Bonue Template of a darling sleigh designed by Sue as well. Try it, you'll like it!


Here is my attmpt at this hot cocoa mug template created by Sue, you have to try this one out.
I love this fantastic stamp set. I filled my cup with a treat bag of cocoa, marshmallows and a Hersheys choc bar tied with some satin brown ribbon. I used the December Stamp of the Month Cup template created by Sue for this project. I created my cup base & handle from the medium brown cs, trimmed the top and bottom with a gold leafing pen bc that's how most of my decorative cups look. I used a strip of vanilla for the middle of the cup and randomly stamped the short sentiments and double marshmallow image in choc chip ink. The focal sentiment and framed image were stamped in close to cocoa on vanilla, matted on a darker brown both trimmed using the Nestability Labels 3. I made a coordinating 3x3 gift card using vanilla and medium brown cs. My focal image was stamped in espresso ink then colored with copics. I filled in the marshmallows with a white jel pen to make then stand out.

Here are some more views:
