Hug in a Mug ~ Christmas Quilt ~ A Colorful Life Designs

 Hello there crafty friend!
I had started another card for my guest designing gig with A Colorful Life Designs last month, but time got away from me and I didn't get it completed until now. So today I'm sharing a fun Winter card featuring a lovely stencil from A Colorful Life Designs. Have you checked out the selection of stencils over at A Colorful Life Designs yet? All so AMAZING! AND they just released a crazy amount of new holiday stencils! OMG!! You have to go take a look! 

I had a fun idea while playing with the Christmas Quilt Stencil from A Colorful Life Designs. I wondered how it would look if I shifted it using two different colors. I did it originally on a scrap of white card stock and I really liked it. So I decided for this card, I wanted to give it a go on Kraft card stock. I blended Lumberjack Plaid Distress Oxide ink over the stencil. I shifted the stencil so the design would overlap and I blended Rustic Wilderness over top. I love it! 

These fun ladies are from an exclusive STAMPtember stamp set, a collaboration from Art Impressions and Simon Says Stamp called Hug in a Mug. This exclusive set from 2021 is no longer available, unfortunately. But I'm super happy that I finally inked it up! Here's a quick list of the Copic markers I used to color up these ladies:

I heat embossed the sentiment using Sugar Cube Pigment ink, Alabaster White embossing powder and my heat tool on Kraft card stock from Papertrey Ink that I had die cut using the Land Border Die Set from Newton's Nook Designs. I trimmed the stenciled panel and adhered the sentiment. Trimmed off the excess and adhered the whole panel onto a white A2 top fold card base.
