Blog hop!! Get well project #3

Hi blog hoppers!!!
Welcome to blog devoted to my peccadillo...stampin!  If you are following the hop from the beginning, you should have hopped to me from  I know you loved the wonders of Amanda's work.

This blog hop is featuring "anything but a card" and I have saved a special project from my last stampin class to share with you today. I hope it inspires you to do something nice for a sick friend!

 This hot cup is actually a get well treat.

Inside the cup are soup mix, tissues, and a chapstick - I intended to include a mini hand sanitizer but my soup mix was too puffy and I couldn't fit the hand sanitizer in there!
The flower design is stamped on a wrapper for the cup so you can stamp it flat on the table and then wrap it around the cup.  Easy peasy.  We used "Awash with Flowers" to stamp...a fabulous two step stamping set.  Inks are rich razzleberry and regal rose.
As you can see, we also used the Tasteful Trim die cut out of Bashful Blue cardstock using the big shot to make the trim around the top of the cup.   I added the die cut grass around the bottom in Always Artichoke cardstock, as well.

Here is another view of the flowers - these were done in daffodil delight ink with an outline in rich razzleberry ink.
The tag is done in rich razzleberry ink and used a retired SU set called Best Bar Codes (I have this set for sale if anyone is interested).  What about the flower on top?

The flower is another die cut...Bigz Island Floral Die - the leaves were cut once in always artichoke cardstock and the flower is one layer of regal rose cardstock and one layer of rich razzleberry cardstock. I punched a star shaped hole in the center of each layer and then stuffed one end of a wrapped cough drop through the hole for a total of five cough drops.  I had a bit of trouble finding a clear-wrapped lemon cough drop so I used a fat yellow lollipop in the center instead.

Thank you for stopping by my blog.  I will randomly select one visitor, from those who leave a comment here on my blog today, to receive a clear mount stamp set.  I'd be pleased to have you visit again soon.

The next stop on the hop is at .......  Check it out!

Oh wow! I love this. Such a thoughtful gift for a sick friend. Wish I had seen this a week ago, as I had a friend who was in her 3rd week of being sick - this would have been perfect. Think I will have to make some of these and keep them on hand for the future. Someone is always sick it seems. Thank you for a great idea. Also, checked out your other "Get Well" ideas below. TFS!

I actually like the sucker in the middle of the flower set. Suckers are still great for sore throats. :)

What a great idea. My daughter is in her third month of laryngitis. Not a good thing for a fifth grade teacher.
