Warm Cup of Cheer

Who doesn’t love a warm frothy cup of cocoa.  Ok, probably some people don’t but I don’t know any of those people.  Want a great way to send some frothy cocoa to a friend, use the Cup of Cheer stamp set by Stampin Up.

How cute is this?  The cups fro cup of cheer are so fun to create and because the stamps are reversable you can have cups with handles on either the right or the left.  The coordinating die set has so many cute elements, including cup cut-outs for both directions.

Using Puff Paint

I used the new Puff Paint to make the whipped cream for the top.  Some things I learned about using this product.

  • A little goes a long way.  I put way to much on the paper before heating it and it went kind of everywhere.  When I used it again with my stamp club I instructed them to put small dots of paint, heat them, then add more.  It took longer but they had more control over what the final look was.
  • The paint comes out really really fast, so don’t squeeze.
  • It takes longer than you think it will to heat and puff up.  Keep heating after it begins to puff as it will puff more.
  • The Puff Paint will pick up ink color.  I had used a sponge dauber on the old olive cardstock after I had embossed it with Winter Knit.  I wanted the detail of the embossing to show a bit more and it did, but when I used the puff paint it picked up some of that old olive ink.
  • Some other uses for Puff paint my club members came up with are of course Snow, but also Beer Foam, marshmallows, shaving cream, and if you colored it you could make flowers or cotton candy, ice cream, inside of a snow globe. Lots and lots of ideas.
  • Puff Paint is very economical.  One bottle will last a very long time and is only $4.50.

Thanks for visiting today.  I’ll be back on Friday with another project.  Until then…

Happy Stamping
