In my house, no one drinks out of a mug. Or a glass. If you sit down on the couch with anything wet in an open-top container your beverage container will be head-butted by the cat. Ask me how I know ... Therefore, all my coffee is consumed in travel mugs because they have tops and are quite discouraging to the average head-butter. I suppose they are still technically 'mugs', so I set the mug-o'the-day on my mostly-cleared crafting area to be inspired, and this is what came out:
Recipe: Stamps - none!; Paper - Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White, Basic Black, misc vellum; Ink - Tempting Turquoise; Other - Slit punch, Cuttlebug, misc bling, sponge dauber, White taffeta ribbon, misc brads, SU rub-on.
This is soooo outside my comfort zone, which I suppose is one of the purposes of a challenge, right? It started with just the Turquoise card base with the black strips, then I discovered this really cool vellum in my stash. Here is a close-up of the vellum and the rub-on:
Isn't that vellum very cool!? And this is the first SU rub-on I've used, and I love the look! The bling is just individual pieces of rhinestones I tore off of one of those cell-phone bling sheets.
By the way, this card totally counts as a Stash Dive challenge - the vellum, the brads, the bling - totally!
Off to go clean up so I have room for the eight ladies who plan to arrive here tomorrow morning for my annual Free-For-All. We just play with our stamps all day, and I am really looking forward to it. :-)
