SNSS: Colorful Cocoa

Good morning!

Today, finishes up the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps' December release blog hop event.  And, we finish with a fun stamp set - sweet little Cocoa Mouse is back and he's getting crafty with crayons and paint!   He's such a fun little critter to play with on cards!

My first card uses Cocoa and the crayon box along with some color swatches from yesterday's featured Grunge Basics - a perfect pairing, if you ask me!  Love this sentiment too!  To help the crayons and swatches take center stage, I went very neutral with the rest of the card, even with my natural solid baker's twine.

My next card was made with lots of turquoise again - I tell you I can't get enough of that color lately!  I stamped, colored with Copics, and fussy cut the Cocoa paint image and layered him on the circle die cut as is he was painting all the papers and patterns with his turquoise paint... fun!

Here's more from Korin on today's featured stamp set:


  • Includes 2 images and 5 sentiments
  • Paint can image measures approximately 2.5" x 2"
  • Designed by Korin Sutherland
