Heartwarming Hugs [The Spot #122]

Published by under cards | Aug 04 2020

Hi friends, Well it’s a busy day on the blog today – with the launch of the new Mini Catalogue and also the release of our monthly Tutorial bundle giveaway.

But I couldn’t miss also joining in with this week’s challenge over on The Spot.

With a theme that includes Coffee, Cocktails and Chocolates – seriously, how could I resist?!

For my contribution this week, I created a card and decorated mini coffee cup which doubles as a treat holder.

Both creations were made with some of the gorgeous products from the Heartwarming Hugs Suite. Check it out here.

On this card we used the Warm Hugs stamp set and coordinating Warm Wraps dies (also available as a bundle to save you 10%). Also the fabulous new Wrapped In Texture embossing folders.

The cute coffee cups are only just a little smaller than the regular cups that we have here in Australia, although having been to the US a few times I know they are considered ‘mini’ by their standards.

They would be fun to hold a gift card, some money, some yummy treats or even… coffee!

Here’s the link to this week’s challenge page so you can see what the other Design Team members created this week. Truly fabulous projects there.


Each week our Design Team of international creatives share projects based on a new challenge. It could be a sketch, a technique, a colour challenge or – as it is in this week – a theme challenge.

Each Tuesday at 9pm (Syd/Mel time) you’ll see a new challenge post on the challenge website (click to visit). You can play along, and if you want you can even enter your card in the weekly challenge by uploading your project (and you don’t even need a blog!).
A winner will be chosen each week.

Thanks for visiting today, and I hope you continue to have an awesome week.

Sending extra big hugs to my crafty friends here in Victoria, Australia, who are doing it tough at the moment with the new tighter Covid lockdowns. We’ll get through this… at least we have our craft!

Happy stamping,
