SSS October Card Kit Blog Hop!

http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/blog/october-2014-card-kit-blog-hop/

Hello and welcome to my stop in the Simon Says Stamp October card kit blog hop! The October card kit is called "Friendship Has Its Perks" and it is full of dark, rich colours and an awesome coffee themed stamp set and die from SSS.

For my card, I wanted to use the large mug stamp and the wood icon glasses from Prima. They fit perfectly on the mug to create a silly, fun card!

I coloured the glasses black and added glossy accents to them to make them look just like black rimmed glasses. I love how the playful face on the mug goes so well with the fun sentiment. I love it! 


To see how I created my card, you can watch the video below:
