Drink Up, Grinches

I'm hopping along with Crackerbox Stamps (affiliate links used throughout) for the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop 2021.  I kept toying with different ideas and settled upon one of my most favorite holiday characters -- the Grinch.  This dude is a favorite and I couldn't resist pairing him with an iconic red coffee cup for this hop.

Supplies Used:
(affiliate links used when available; thank you!)
Card Kit #18 and Stamps - Nov
Bib Overlay Cards
Grinch Image
Grinch Face
Drink Up Grinches
Coffee Dies from Jaded Blossom
Snowflake Stencil like these (Amazon aff.)
Liquitex Basics Modeling Paste (Amazon aff.)
Shimmery Glitter
Gelly Roll Pen - White (Amazon aff.)

Those that follow me know that I don't hesitate chopping up sentiment stamps to allow the option to stamp them in different arrangements.  Luckily, the Drink Up Grinches sentiment was easy enough to ink just the portions I wanted to stamp without getting ink all over the rest.  So, I partially stamped "Drink Up" then "Grinches" on the top circular panel of the new Bib Overlay Cards.

I wanted to break up that beautiful red on the front panel so I stenciled snowflakes with modelling paste, sprinkling with shimmery glitter while it was still wet.  Then, I layered the red coffee cup and Mr. Grinch atop.  For the inside, I partially stamped the Drink Up Grinches sentiment again, this time only inking "It's Christmas!".  To bring the Grinch to the inside, I stamped Grinch Face just below the sentiment in grey ink, only coloring the yellow of his eyes.  I love it!

For those that use Spectrum Noir TriBlend alcohol markers like myself, you are welcome to save or Pin the above photo of the colors I used -- Ice Grey Blend, Dull Green Blend, Light Yellow Blend, Dark Red Blend, and a white Gelly Roll pen.
