cup of cheer...

Hey... just popping in with a card for a couple of challenges.  Feels like ages since I last posted anything! I'm a little behind on the October Viva La Verve challenge.  My card today uses the week one sketch.  Hoping to have a little time this weekend to make something using the second sketch!  I'm also adding this to the current Merry Monday challenge - Java Time.   For my card I pulled out a couple of Verve sets (Unto Us and Holiday Treats) and my Teresa Collins Tinsel and Company 6x6 pad.  Still trying to use up all that patterned paper I have accumulated.   So to that end I'm giving my nieces some of my stash.  They just love getting crafting supplies and I love giving them crafting supplies!  Anywhoo... on to my card!  I recently got the Rectangle Backdrop dies from A Jillian Vance Design.  They coordinate with the Polka Dot Rectangle Backdrop dies and so I used the two largest dies from each set to die cut the two main panels.  The smaller panel was also die cut using the Polka Dot Rectangle Backdrop.  The center label was die cut using the Verve Classy Label die and then stamped with the corresponding image from Unto Us and the sentiment from Holiday Cheer.  The little coffee cups were die cutting using the Verve Cup of Cheer dies and then stamped with their corresponding image in kraft and red inks.  I used a Verve border die.  After I layered the panels and the banner I added some red and kraft twine.  The cups were adhered to the label and then added to the card.   Adding this to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge:  clean and simple.
