More SB Mug inspired cards

Hello there!  

Leave it to me when I post that I'm feeling in a stamping rut, to start stamping!!  :D  I made these 2 cards today, both inspired by more Starbucks mugs!  Thank you so much Jennie for the great tip to use SB mugs as inspiration.  I think that should be a new monthly stamping ritual:  go to SB, get some coffee, snap some pics of new mugs on the shelf and make some cards!!  I could definitely get used to this!



I kept these super simple!  I didn't even add glitter, I can always go back and do that if needed.  (Who am I kidding, glitter is always needed!!)  I know you can't see it in the pic, but on the bottom card, I used Shimmery White cardstock to give it a little extra umph.  I shoulda used my Stamp-a-ma-jig on that card, but I was having a tough time lining the hearts up even with that, couldn't coordinate it well, so I just eye-balled it.  All stamps used are by A Muse (some are retired though).  Thanks for stopping by!

AMAZING! Thank you so much for showing the inspiration mugs! Your cards are incredible! WOW!!!

Nancy said...

WOW...there is A LOT of inspiration to be had at SB!! I'm so glad you've included pictures of the mugs that inspired these cards. It's fun to look at both of the pics. I really like how you added the "stainless" look to the bottom of the first card, & what a fun way to use that heart balloon stamp. You're getting some ideas stirring in my head ;). The hearts look perfectly lined up to me on the second card & I like how you added the "love you" sentiment. Such a sweet little card! I love that shimmery white cardstock....it's so hard to photograph shimmer & sparkles isn't it??

You can shop thru the drive thru. I've done it before. Now I want to go to Starbucks and get a new Valentine mug. I was thinking about going there today and I said no...brew your own Starbucks coffee at home. Darn.

thanks for the great cards.
