We are Crazy4Cocoa ~

Welcome to the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Crazy 4 Cocoa blog hop!  We all adore Cocoa and thought it would be fun to showcase him all month long. Today, as part of the fun, the Sweet 'n Sassy Design Divas have joined together with a few of the talented Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge ladies to bring a great Cocoa Mouse blog hop to you!  Make sure you've got your warm drink and some chocolate...let's get ready to hop!

Stamps: Cocoa's Mittens
Inks: Copics, Memento
papers: MME, SU cs
Accessories: ribbon, SU Punches, Spellbinder

If you have come from Kim's paperie petals you are where you need to be. If you happened here, join us and be sure to begin at Sweetn'Sassy stamps...

For my first card, I chose Cocoa's Mittens and paper pieced the image using MME paper pad. I cut out the image using the Eyelet Squares die and layered dp onto the snowflake embossed base. I tied it all together using American Crafts ribbon. 

Stamps: Cup of Cocoa
Inks: Copics, Memento
Papers: MME, Kraft CS
Accessories: Baker's Twine, button, Spellbinder dies, SU punch
For my second card, I used the adorable Cup of Cocoa set. I coloured the whole cup and then added the white snowflakes using my Inkssentials opaque white pen. I cut Cocoa out using another spellbinder die. To bring the colours together, I pulled out my baker's twine, they are so much fun to use.
