Mama Elephant Stamp Highlight ~ Cup of Wishes

Hi everyone!  Today is the last day of highlights before the November Mama Elephant release goes up on the website!  The set for today is called Cup of Wishes!  As the name implies, this set is full of tea (or coffee:) cup images plus a bunch of other little detail stamps.  You will love it!  If you saw the sneak peeks of this set, you've already seen this sentiment:)  It is meant to go with the teacups in the set, but I thought I'd pair it up with a die cut cozy cabin!  


I used my Silhouette for this one, but you could use any die cut house with a chimney:)  Behind the window I put a little piece of cardstock blended with orange and yellow.  Can't you just picture the cozy fire inside?


If you'd like to try this card out yourself, you can pick up this Silhouette file here.  



Before I go, I want to share a little teacup tag!  For this tag, I stamped the teacup onto patterned paper (can you believe it?) and fussy cut it out.  The wafts of steam behind the cup are from the same sentiment stamp I used above only masked this time.  The sentiment is from a set we highlighted earlier this week, No Peeking.  As a final touch, I die cut a spoon in gold foil paper and debossed it with a flourishy impression plate to give it a engraved look.  The handle of the spoon is slipped through a little cut in the top of the cup as if it was in the tea itself.  


I hope you've found some inspiration this week!  THANK YOU so much for stopping by!  Tomorrow we will be highlighting the last of the November release!  Go check out the rest of the Mama Elephant gals to see their wonderful On Target projects!


Don't forget to leave comments on the ME blog and the DT's blogs to enter your name into the drawing for a free set!  One winner will be randomly chosen from all the blogs:)  {All the new sets will be available for purchase on November 15th}  

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj
