You Warm My Heart

***Click HERE for my Season's Givings Blog Hop post/giveaway!***

It sounds like it's going to be pretty chilly around here for the next few days, so I thought I'd put together a warm feeling card to share,  This one uses stamps from the Hot Hot Hot set from Fresh Squeezed Stamps

You Warm My Heart-designed by Lori Tecler-Inking Aloud-stamps from Fresh Squeezed Stamps
The mug image is colored with Copic markers and cut out.  I stamped the set's heart-shaped steam image in gray ink on a round panel, then set the colored mug on the panel using dimensional dots, positioning the mug so the steam extends out from the top. 

I used papers in the same brown and blue shades as I used on the mug for the panels behind the image.  I covered most of a light blue card base with a brown dotted patterned paper, then added a trio of fishtail flag banners over it.  The banners are topped with a piece of white doily.  I wrapped the doily with some white twine, securing it with abow.  After setting the image panel in place overlapping one of the banner strips, I stamped the "you warm my heart" sentiment at the bottom of the card in Memento Luxe Tuxedo Black ink.  I know I've said it before, but I'll say it again--these inks are quickly becoming my go-to inks for just about everything.  If you're looking for them, you can find the full size ink pads and refills, too, at i {heart} papers.

Materials Used:
