Thank You To-Go

August was a crazy, crazy month.  Not only was it crazy but it flew by--I cannot believe it has been over a full month since I last posted.  I'm sure many of you share this crazy time at August.  I created a lot but it was mainly developing my own curriculum for my son's pre-K that I am attempting to homeschool.  With that behind me, I can finally sit down and share the cards I did manage to squeeze in here and there.

This to-go coffee cup die/stamp set has been sitting, waiting for me to use it for a couple months.  I bought them specifically for whom I made this card.  It is a fun set to use.

The sentiment is stamped inside the negative cut out of the polka dot paper on the card base and edges of the polka dot paper got inked with chai ink.  
After die cutting the to-go cups, I use Tim Holtz Distress Ink on the white card stock and then rubbed chamomile ink on top of that to achieve this look.  After all that was dry, I stamped the images. I used a green and a pink Copic markers to fill color on the cups.  The loopy lines got traced with RV25 after the green was stamped, YG13 filled in the checkers on the the middle cup, and RV25 filled the hearts in on the last one. They were then mounted with foam dimensionals on top of the kraft colored ribbon that I tried to make look like steam coming up off hot cups.  I know it is a bit of a stretch but a cute stretch.  ;)

Thanks for looking!
