coffee cup and buttons card


I love the blog talk about WCMD hangovers, chuckle chuckle.  While I didn't spend my entire day making cards, I did get inspired by a few extra challenges (you know me, total junkie over here).  A Muse is having a challenge to use one of their stamps and buttons.  My A Muse stamp collection is limited to this vintage coffee cup stamp (I've probably had the stamp for 7 years?), so hopefully they didn't need a new A Muse stamp :)  And while trying to figure out what to do with some buttons I cute out a few buttons with Core'dinations (who are also have a WCMD weekend challenge) and then I added some of the rest of the Cheerio box I was using on this project to make the buttons a bit thicker, using the Make It Monday tip.  And since Simon Says Stamps is trying to reach 1000 entries for their current challenge, here's one more to the total.  

Materials: A Muse Coffee Cup, PTI Limitless Layers die, PTI button die, EK Success 1 3/4th inch circle punch, Smooch Red Spritzer, white gel pen, Core'dinations card stock, PTI kraft card stock, white and black card stock, misc. buttons, Versafine black ink
