Mug of Warm Winter Wishes 23

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, September 30, 2009 @ 2:28 PM | , , , ,

Hi Ladies! Thanks for all the encouragement especially with my Monster Madness forever growing set! You'll be seeing more of those lil' guys in the days to come :) Today, I am in the mood for some wintry creations. There is soooo many beautiful Christmas/Holiday papers hitting the shelves lately. On my last trip to the LSS, I came across this cute DP made by Imaginisce & the coordinating stamp which cost only 99 cents! I combined 2 challenges to make my Mug of Warm Winter Wishes set. This week Lauren's My Timeless Template Challenge 06, MTTC06, is to use ANY My Timeless Template & PACKAGE candy of some sort OR get inspired by the candy wrapper! I found inspiration in the wrapper of the lil' Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark squares & for sketch inspiration, I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch for Challenge #37, SSSC37. I probably sound like a broken record but I have to share with you again how EASY & VERSATILE Lauren's templates are to use! They make GREAT, inexpensive gifts that you can decorate any way you like for any occasion! If you are looking for inspiration, I recommend visiting both Lauren & Karen. They have beautiful creations displayed on their sites, as well as their DT's! I would love to know if you are in the wintry - Holiday season yet? Be Sweet!

Here's my Mug of Warm Winter Wishes set:
I wanted something a lil' more subtle to break up all that busy-i-ness going on in the Imaginisce DP so I inked up my brayer with SU Bashful Blue ink, rolled it on the Sizzix Christmas snowflake embossing folder, then ran it through the Sizzix Big Shot Express machine.
To break up all that white around the Imaginisce Hot Chocolate image, I inked up the appropriate size dotted label image from the PTI Vintage Labels set with SU Bashful Blue ink.

Not only is the Outer bag that Ghiradelli Peppermint Bark candy gorgeous but every single lil' square is wrapped in beautiful candy cane striped paper! How inspirational is that? :)

I packaged 6 Ghiradelli Peppermint Bark squares in a small cellophane bag & that fits EASILY into ONE of the PTI My Timeless Template Milk Carton Made templates.

REMEMBER: Mark your calendar for Saturday, October 3rd! It is World Card Making Day & I will be celebrating by kicking off the holiday card-making season here at Cupcake's Creations! Don't forget to stop by to see what I am up to :)
