  • Loopy Bloom Die-namics Die


I knew when I saw this set, that I wanted to create something mug related, I remembered this mug shaped card that I made years ago so started creating that … then I remembered the other mug that you see in my first pic … and couldn’t decide which one I wanted to do so as you can see I ended up creating both of them.

To make the mug shaped card I folded a piece of blue card so it was 10.5cm wide x 12 cm high when folded. I used circle & oval nestabilities to create the shape at the top and the handles. I then lined the inside so it looked like cocoa.

For the WTG image I paper pieced her jumper, scarf & gloves … I love this designer paper I used for this … doesn’t that look like it could have been a real knitted jumper Smile. I layered the image using the Die-namics Dainty Doily Duo and also used the Die-namics Dainty Lace Border along the bottom border of the card.


Here is the inside of my mug shaped card. I used the Die-namics Sweet Stack Labels for my sentiment. I also added the mug of cocoa which is included in the stamp set.


Next I created this 3D mug using my scor-pal, I found the directions on how to make this on the Scor-pal site but I changed the measurements to suit this image … my score lines around the coffee mug are all 1 1/4 inches apart while the one in the directions was only 1 inch. My mug stands 4 1/4 inches tall when finished … so I also changed the height details in the directions. It isn’t hard to change to suit your own needs.

The WTG image is the same as on my mug shaped card. I put some cocoa & marshmallows in two different clear bags and then tied them together using the new Die-namic Loopy Blooms die … I gotta say I LOVE LOVE LOVE this new flower Die-namics. It is so easy to create, I cut mine out using My Favorite Felt – Cherry on Top. Just cut, fold and roll it is that easy!!!!!!!!!!


Here is one more pic of my mug so you can see the loopy bloom flower a little better. There is also a packet of tiny marshmallows behind the cocoa … guess I should have turned the pack around a little so you could see both.

Here are the Die-namics I used for my projects today:
