Potted Mugs – Thinking of You

I am ready for tonight’s class and had a little time to play…

Working with the Fusion Challenge (Pumpkin Mugs).

I was inspired by the colors and the mugs…however, I decided that the mugs would be used as little plant pots for Succulents.

Here is the result:


  • I chose to color the Planted Cups images from the retired Just Add Color Specialty Designer Series Paper pack that I still have.  The images were colored with a variety of Light Stampin’ Blends.  The colors chosen were: Soft Succulent. Just Jade, Petal Pink, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze, Balmy Blue and retired Seaside Spray.  Once colored, the images were Fussy Cut with Paper Snips.
  • Accent Panel: (4⅞” x 2”) Basic White cardstock dry-embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.
  • Strip One: (5½” x 1”) Mint Macaron cardstock die-cut with the scalloped Basic Borders Die.  The sentiment, Thinking of You, from the retired In the Pines stamp set was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
  • Strip Two: (5½” x ¾”) Pumpkin Pie cardstock dry-embossed with the retired Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.
  • Strip Three: (5½” x ¼”) exposed card base – Balmy Blue
  • All of the elements were arranged as per the sketch on to a Balmy Blue card base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”).

Coloring with Stampin’ Blends is a great way to add color to any image, stamped or printed.  I am very happy with how the Potted Cups turned out.

Thanks for spending some of your time with me today.   Cheers, Jolanda!
