Brand Ambassador Inspiration - Warm Christmas Wishes

Bonjour !

It's Izzy here. I echo Bev's post (see HERE) with 3 hot drink inspiration cards. Coffee being also the theme of the last challenge at The Day of the Month Card Club, I had to make a card for my reminder post. So I pulled out Uniko's I LOVE COFFEE stamp and made this card. 

For the background, I used the gorgeous Framed-Holly stamp. I first stamped it with a no-line colouring ink and I coloured it with colour pencils. Once finished, I stamped on top with black ink.
I used the I LOVE coffee stamp set to make the cup. I stamped it in red, the sticker in black and I masked the edges to stamp some holly leaves from the Framed-Holly stamp set. I fussy cut it and I foam mounted it on the holly background. 

As this card was originally intended for my reminder message for DotMCC, I added a holly leaf and changed the berries to coffee beans. And to finish, on a black strip, I stamped and I white heat embossed the sentiment coming from Christmas Sentiments set.

While making this first card, another idea came to me and I couldn't help but put it into action by making this second card.

To be honest, this is the first cup I made, but I didn't like it with the holly background. I still found it pretty so it would have been a shame not to use it. To decorate this card, I used the Quilted stencil with a red mechanical pencil. 

This pattern is reminiscent of Nordic Christmas decorations, so I used the set Background Blocks : Scandinavian Christmas to make the background. I simply stamped and white heat embossed it on a die cut red card stock. To remain in the Scandinavian style, I used a double kraft card. The sentiment comes from the Simply Said Blocks Christmas set.

To tell you the truth, the irony is that I never drink coffee. So I also wanted to highlight the very pretty I LOVE TEA stamp set with this last card.

On a slimline white card and using masks, I stamped the cup several times in rainbow colours. Still with masks, I decorated each cup using the Scandinavian Christmas stencil. And I used the Christmas Sentiments set to finish this card.

Having used Uniko's wonderful products for these three cards, I then decided to share them with you in this inspiration post and I finally made another card for the DotMCC reminder post. 


  1. What a winning combination of Christmas stamps and stencils with the coffee and tea sets! These are really great Izzy. Although I’m imagining it’s hot chocolate not coffee!! 😆 x

  2. Wonderful cards Izzy - especially your stacked cups - they are so joyful in the colours you have used
