ATC - Hug in a Mug

Hi, everyone! As promised, I'm back with another coffee-themed project for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

I made another ATC, or artist trading card, measuring 2.5" x 3.5". ATCs are great to include in happy mail, and I also enjoy putting together nine of them to make a pocket letter. If all goes well, then I should be able to share a completed coffee-themed pocket letter before the end of the hop! If you're curious about ATCs, you can read more about them here.


The kitty die is from Paper Smooches, and the tiny stitched tag die is from La-La Land.  The Hug in a Mug sentiment stamp is from Newton's Nook, and the coffee word and cup are stamps from Moodtape.  I used some leftover patterned paper snippets - ATC's are great for using up small bits of snippets!  In fact, the cat, coffee cup, and tag were also stamped on or die-cut from snippets!  I finished off my ATC with a punched bow and gem adhered to the tiny tag.  

I would also like to support the following challenges:  Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper May UE; Double Trouble Two or More Patterned Papers and Link up to Coffee Lovers Blog Hop 2/4; Happy Little Stampers AG with Dies UE; If You Give a Crafter a Cookie Pets Inspiration Photo 4/5; Incy Wincy ATC, Tag or Bookmark 4/5; Pixie's Snippet Playground 327 (all snippets here!) 1E;  Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Use more than one stamp 1/5; Stamped Blessings heARTful stamping AG plus Stamp 1/2; SUYP Cats Only Furrything Goes UE


Thank you for looking at my ATC! Wishing you a joyful day!

Wow, that was fast to see you again. You wouldn't think so much could go on a ATC card...I must make some. I love the Paper Smooches kitten die, I used it last year for the Coffee Hop and forgot to pull it out again. Adorable card and thanks again for sharing with us at DOUBLE TROUBLE.
