Gourmet Rubber Stamps and a Gourmet Gift!

For this project, I used the October Diner's Club set, "Tart & Spice" from Lizzie Anne Designs. I just love the little cider mug image! I filled a clean and empty "coffee drink" bottle with mulled cider mix (recipe HERE), created a computer generated label printed on kraft cardstock with directions on the ratio of apple cider or juice to the mix inside. I stamped the cider mug once on the label using Rhubarb Memento ink, as well as the MME paper that wraps the bottle, and one more on a scrap of kraft cardstock. This last one was colored with Copic markers, cut out, and attached to the Hemptique Twine tie on the lid with a jumpring. The lid was also wrapped with a circle of homey fabric, and a cinnamon stick was added for the finishing touch. Such a cute little gift for the autumn easy, so inexpensive, and with these great fun! If you'd like me to email you the JPEG I created for the labels for free, just leave me your email addy in the comment section. Meanwhile, head over to the Gourmet Rubber Stamps site, and get shopping!
