Screaming Marshmallows!!!

Bet the title REALLY made you want to look, huh? My brother-in-law's 18th birthday party was tonight, and since I needed to make a card for that, I also decided to put it in the challenge over at Scrapbookaholic By Abby - anything goes, but use a stamp somewhere on the project! I thought of the card because the birthday guy had shown us some Youtube videos a while ago of these little marshmallows with faces, screaming as they found out they were going to be roasted over a campfire. He also loves coffee, tea, cocoa, and anything like that - so I decided to kind of combine the two ideas!!! I LOVE how it came out! So much fun!

Anyway, used Unity Stamps for the sentiment on the mug, and the corners, and a Pink by Design sentiment in the left hand corner. The mug is cut from Gypsy Wanderings, by hiding the extra contours on it, and the steam is cut from Joys of the Season and covered with Glossy Accents. The marshmallows are just rounded off rectangles that I got off of the Preserves cartridge, but I know you can find that on several different cartridges as well. Added some cute Peachy Keen faces, by mixing together the eyes from a couple different sets, and the mouths from a face part set that I had. Inked the edges of the marshmallows, and drew the little half circle to make them actually look like marshmallows! Pop dotted everything, and finished off with a little faux stitching! SOOOO much fun!
