Paper Sweeties Inspiration Challenge - October 2016

Hello Friends!

 Happy World Cardmaking Day!
Since it is Saturday and an OFFICIAL card making day I hope you will all get to spend some time in your crafty place making some fun cards to celebrate!
And since it is also October 1st and a brand new month it is also time for a brand new Paper Sweeties Inspiration Challenge!  So welcome to the October Inspiration Challenge with Paper Sweeties!

I had so much fun with these lovely Autumn colors.  Here is the "Cocoa" themed card that I created:

 I used several stamp and die sets to create my card.  The lovely mason jar was created with the Mason Jar stamps and dies.  I used the banner die and stamps from this set to make my "yummy treats" labels to tie around the lid.  The word "cocoa" is from the "But First Coffee" stamp set and was used to create my label for my mason jar full of cocoa. 
The cups of hot cocoa were created with the teacup stamp and die from the "Eat Cake" sets. I used some small square foam pieces to create marshmallows inside the cups.

The "Warm Winter Wishes" sentiment is from the stamp set of the same name.  A wonderful card to send for a variety of occasions during the cooler months....when they finally arrive.  We are still having sunny weather in the 70's here in Seattle though we have had two nice rain showers over the past month that were much needed!  I cannot wait for some cooler weather!  I am soooo ready this year!
