Card #4 – How’ve you bean?

I started by assembling all my supplies.

StampsI was given this stamp set by a dear friend for my birthday.  I happen to love tea, coffee, stamps and puns so this was an AWESOME gift!

I used stone cardstock (5 1/2″ X 8 1/2″) for my base, rust cardstock (4″ X 5 1/2″), white card stock (1″ X 4″) and patterned paper for the coffee cups.

Inking with Distress InkI started by using the border punch on the white cardstock (1″ X 4″).  I then inked the piece with Distress Ink and a piece of foam to remove the bright white and inked the edges with a darker shade of Distress Ink.  I used my adhesive to attach the border piece to the rust cardstock about a third of the way down from the top of the card.  I inked the edges of the rust cardstock and I set that aside while I worked on the coffee cups.

Stamping on back of pattern paperInking the cup detailsFor each coffee cup, I stamped the cup image onto the back of each piece of patterned paper.  I then cut out the cup making sure to also cut the piece from inside the handle.  Then I used my Pitt pen to draw the border lines and details of the cup.  I did this 5 times.  Additionally using my hearts punch, I punched 3 large hearts out of scrap rust cardstock for the front of the cups.

I stamped the sentiment with Momento black ink just underneath the border piece.

Rounding the cornersTo finish off the card, I used my Wink of Stella Glitter Pen on the hearts and rounded the corners with my We Are Memory Keepers Corner Chomper.


Here is the finished card.

I love making cards that have a bit of whimsy and ‘punny’ humor.   It’s great to make cards for people, but to get them to laugh or at least smile really big is a complete bonus.

I love watching my mom work.  I also love watching my mom eat ’cause sometimes she gives me treats.
