Christmas Cup of Cheer

Hi Crafty Friends,
I used the Newton's Nook PSL Stamp set for  Christmas card. I was inspired by the Newton's Nook Sketch Challenge #201 and Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge #17 Stars with Newton's Nook Tumbling Stars Stencil and Newton's Nook Canine Christmas Paper Pad for my background.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Do you like the "Christmas" flavored coffees?
A: Me? Not really...

  1. Love the starry background and the papers! Sweet card!
    I'm not much of a coffee drinker, but I'll probably enjoy a peppermint mocha sometime during the holiday season!

  2. You did a great job mixing patterned paper- love this card! I don't like any kind of coffee. lol

  3. Love your coffee themed holiday card, Meghan! So perfect for this sketch! Thanks for playing along with the Inky Paws Challenge! Inky hugs, Crystal

  4. Just love a pretty coffee-theme holiday card! This is such a fun, creative interpretation of the sketch! Always a pleasure to see your work at Inky Paws!

  5. Love the stenciled star background and great interpretation of the sketch challenge. Beautiful coloring on the little girl. Adorable card. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble and Jingle Belles.

  6. This is so adorable and festivet!! I love all your patterned paper. I like plain coffee the flavors leave an aftertaste.
    Thank you for joining the DL.ART July 2023 LINKY CHALLENGE.
    Have a blessed day

  7. I love the classic Christmas colors for this cute coffee card! Thanks for joining the Inky Paws Challenge!

  8. Meghan, yet another example of your wonderful colorist talents! Great choice to use holiday patterns as you backgrounds, too!! The die cut ovals are just perfect to focus our attention when the patterns could have distracted us... but didn't. I don't drink coffee at all, but I'll take a hot chocolate drink laced with run and/or kalua during those cold winter days anytime. Thank you so much for sharing your card and creativity with us at Double Trouble for our "Christmas in July" challenge!!! -Donna

  9. That girl holding her cup is such a cute image! I love all the details and layers you used on this card! I don't drink coffee so I don't know about Christmas flavors! But they sure are popular! Thanks for sharing your Christmas in July card with us at Double Trouble! :)

  10. Fabulous mix of patterned paper and colors, Meghan! great coloring, too, and I am looking forward to that cup of cheer. Thank you for playing along with us at Double Trouble Challenge #142. -- Melanie R. (We are coffee drinkers and enjoy trying flavored coffee from time to time. Our current favorite is Barney's "Santa's White Christmas" because it has a rich coffee flavor, is not too sweet and has no bitter taste.)

  11. Cute n sassy. Tea drinker, but do like vanilla or cinnamon in coffee to cut the bitterness.

  12. That star background is fab! Adorable card! Thanks for joining us over at Caffeinated Christmas!
