Keesh's Inkspirations Inspiration Challenge # 6


When I was organising the link for the template used in my MDUC baby card I was also checking out the other templates on offer - and this one just jumped out at me and said KEESH'S CHALLENGE!!! So here I am, posting my second template card in one day. I admit that Jean's last card for the House Mouse Challenge helped me decide this was the way to go too - check her fabulous mug card here.


For my Mug of Soup I used the template here and enlarged it by 200%. The front has been run through my Floral Fantasy Cuttlebug folder. I used some Tangerine tango for the "soup", some white EP and the swirl from Priceless for the "cream" and the "nutmeg" are petals from the Season of Joy flower! The label on the front is from the retired SAB set Yummy and the Pumpkin is from the new hostess set Window Dressing. Boy did I have a lot of stamp sets flying around - LOL.

I used Mellow Moss Tafetta ribbon and sponged some mellow moss onto the mug handle too. I felt the handle was a little too flimsy so I strengthened it with some Crystal Effects - which unfortunately has changed the colour a bit and hasn't dried evenly - oh well, live and learn! The "nutmegs" also have some Crystal Effects on.

I wasn't sure how useful this card would be for anything but this challenge - but have decided to make some cheesy twist biscuits and wrap them up as a gift to go with this card - they are GREAT with Pumpkin Soup! Now who to give it to.....

Great job with this challenge Debbie - love the mug of soup!!
The embossed mug looks fantastic - just like the real thing.

Now I wouldn't say that you're a Cuttlebug fanatic - you just find lots of ways to advertise their products :-) LOL (Mind you, now that I have my collection handy in my new work area, I'm starting to use them a lot more often so might catch up to you soon!)

See you soon,
Ramona xx

Hey Debbie,
thanks for your lovely comment! I LOVE the mug, and the dry embossing rocks! Smart thinking using the pumpkin from the hostess set...I didn't think of that! Are you enjoying the cuttlebug? I am seriously contemplating if I should buy it!!!
