The cup in the set reminds me of my favorite guilty pleasure - Starbucks! The sentiment I used is fun, too - How Ya' Bean?
I wanted to try out some more of my new A Muse products, so I used a polka dot stamp to provide some unique inking to the front of the card. I also used a small piece of the A Muse Polka Dot designer paper to give some color to the card front. Isn't it cheerful?
The Washi tape is such a fun product. I was able in stamp the sentiment onto it, it did take quite a while for the ink to dry, though. And I just wanted a rugged/torn look so I just ripped the piece of Washi tape and adhered it to the front of the card.
I added some buttons that I had (although A Muse does sell buttons, I don't own any of them - YET!) to give some depth and a variety of color to my card.
Here's the inside of my card:
I wanted to try adding ink to the edges of my card, so I did - both inside and out with French Roast ink. I also sponged some Bubblegum ink onto the area where I then stamped the sentiment for some added color.
Speaking of sponging, let me show you my sponging kit that I'm making. So far, the only colors I have in it are Bubblegum and French Roast.
I purchased a package of 12 sponges for a dollar at a yard sale last summer. I am in the process of cutting them into 6 pieces each and I add a handle (white cardstock stapled onto the piece of sponge) so that I can easily hold onto the sponge while inking and sponging onto my projects. I write the ink color onto the handle for easy reference.
The plastic storage case is one that I had from my old system of storing my earrings. It is perfect for my sponge kit.
