Warm Wishes - Altenew and Papertrey Ink

Happy Saturday!
It's looking a whole lot like winter here, and snow is all around us! Naturally, cozy cards are on my mind, so today I'm sharing a quick little number that  just might warm even the coldest of days :)

I started this card with a patterned paper journal card, complete with polka dots, and a striped heart. I love pulling colors from paper patterns, and I thought the combination of burnt orange and red was perfect for a comforting vibe. I added some mustard to the mix and a wee bit of yellow as well.

I framed my sweet cup with these beautiful stamped branches using Altenew's Floral Frame stamp set. 
I colored some leaves selectively, and also added a few berries using PTI's Holiday Hugs stamp and die set. I used colors of Smokey Shadow, Pure Poppy, Terracotta Tile, and Saffron Spice to match the cozy hues. 

For the striped mug, I used an older stamp set from The Craft's Meow (no longer available), but I did find this sweet stamp that would work perfectly! I embossed the image, and then added the stripes with a Copic marker. The snowflake is also from PTI's Holiday Hugs MIM kit. 

At the bottom, I used the kit stamp for the sentiment, and to add a few stenciled snowflakes. 

I hope you're all staying warm in your craftrooms! 

Thanks for your visits :)
