Red & White Challenge

Tami posted a red and white challenge on her blog. I thought and thought and thought and here's what I came up with. All stamps here by justjohanna. I love the new mug. I love the old teacup, too, but this is just too fun. The paper I used in this project is called Flirt Collection from Memory Box.

I stamped the swirly background on the darker red paper and then stamped on the mug. I cut out the mug and then used my white pen to color in the design. Used my new scallop punch and punched out one in white and one in the dar red. My regular sized hole punch was used to punch the holes in each scallop section of the red punched paper. I adhered the red to the white punch and then stamped the sentiment in the center. Colored the word with my white pen.

I'm learning to ground my images, so I drew a simple line across the bottom of the cardstock and put my mug on the line, which is supposed to be a table. I adhered the scallop and the mug to the background cardstock and then use the swirly tail as steam for the mug. I stamped in white pigment ink and then sprinkled white glittery embossing powder on top of the image and then heat embossed it. Used my SU corner punch on the corners and then adhered it to my 4.25 x 5.5 card.
