STAMPlorations Inspiration #51

Hi Everyone,
its inspiration time at STAMPlorations!

I hope you have it warm and cozy, where ever you are.

My materials: 
preview-CaffeinatedChristmas   preview-web-stencil-017-CoffeeCup copy.jpeg  stmp1073.jpeg

I colored white embossing paste with distress inks and smeared it onto the stencil. While it was still wet I sprinkled glitter onto the steam. Made a little see-through baggie for my tea bag (from some left over stamp wrapping) and adorned it with the snowflakes. Sponged in some distress ink and added the sentiment and some splatters.


Linking up with:
Make my Monday - White Christmas
Snippets Playground - use a snippet - tea bag
The Holiday Coffee Lovers blog hop - there are lots of awesome prizes to win (keeping my fingers crossed...)

Truly, Irish Breakfast with a dash of sugar and a little milk.:

Happy Stamping!
