Hey everyone! My blog has been very quiet for the past few days but I can assure you I've been a busy little bee! Today is the first day of reveals for Ink to Paper's October release (available on the 15th) and we are introducing you to Festive Mugs Stamp Set and Dies + Corner It: Holly Stamp Set and Dies + Home Door Decor Stamp Set and Dies + Woodwork Dies + Inside Greetings: Season's Greetings Stamp Set.
I went with a paper piecing technique for this trio of mugs and it's quite busy with lots of holiday patterned papers. The edges of the music panel were roughed up with a distressing tool then sponged with Vintage Photo distress ink. The large flourish in the corner holly die set was cut in half so I could add it to two corners.
There are lots of fun little images to embellish your card (holly, evergreen sprigs, berries, flowers, etc.). The berries were highlighted with Glossy Accents.

Next on board is a fun holiday door design with so many possibilities!
While I initially thought to mimic my own front door which is red, the old brain ventured out instead to go with an aqua/teal color which recently caught my eye in a local home. I only used one "plank" of the wood die set here, but there will be an entire background of these wood pieces on my release day card. I dry embossed a brick background on white so the door color would pop out better.
