The Stamps of Life has some great Cocoa/Hot Chocolate stamps and dies!! My cards features the HotChocolate2, Patterns4HotChocolate stamps and the die set Hot Chocolate!

For my first card I stamped the polka dot pattern in red, using the matching dies to cut and mat it. I also stamped a few of the marshmallows and then fussy cut them.

I paired the mug with some gold card stock and an ornament pattern. I added the mug with foam tape, along with some marshmallows in the cup and around the bottom of the mug.  Then I stamped my sentiments, cut them out and adhered them.

For my second card I used some Llama pattern paper and cut the mug and whipping from white card stock. I also cut the spoon from grey card stock, using a little ink around the edges.

I found some pattern paper with small snowflakes and added it to a white card base. I added my Llama cup and spoon to the card with foam tape.

Below the cup I stamped the Happiness Is... Hot Chocolate in brown ink. Last I added a few confetti dots around the mug to add a little sparkle.
