A Hug In A Mug Card Using Unity Stamps and Faber Castell Watercolor Pencils

What’s better then a cup of coffee? How about a hug in a mug? Or, hugs that come with a gift card to your favorite coffee shop? The card I’m sharing today it’s just the perfect card to add that coffee shop gift card too.

Today today I’m going to keep this post fairly short, and just list all the supplies below. Before I get to that list I would like to talk a little bit about the Angie girl stamp. Angie Blom draws some of the most lovely girls, then Unity Stamp Co turns them into red rubber stamps. I love these girls stamps as do many other Crafters, but they do not have faces. I don’t mind them not having faces, but I do prefer then to have a face. While some Crafters love these faceless girls, others do not. If you love The designs of these girls and are not a fan of them being faceless there is a way for you to add those faces. Peachy Keen Stamps makes a handful of different face stamps that are perfect for Angie girl stamps. There’s just one downfall to the Peachy Keen face stamps, the facial features are not spaced to work with the Angie girls, so you will have to be willing to do a little stamp surgery. This means to cut the face stamps apart and down, then to place them where you would want the facial features on your Angie girl. To do the placing of your cut down facial features you need a stamping tool like the MISTI or the Tim Holtz stamp positioner

Supplies Used:

  • Angie Girl and sentiment are from the May 2017 Unity Stamp Co KOM “Free Your Dreams”
  • Peachy Keen Stamp “Laffy Taffy Face Assortment” set
  • Faber Castell watercolor pencils
  • Versafine black onyx ink
  • Canson XL watercolor paper
  • Misti stamping tool
  • Stitched rectangle die
  • Atg tape gun
  • Recollections cardstock
  • Pretty pretty patterned paper for my craft stash

I will be I will be entering this into the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Spring/Summer Blog Hop and the Unity Stamp Co Angie Girl Challenge.

Thank you for coming by today


Happy Crafting
