How ya' bean?

"How ya' bean?" hee hee! I love that phrase - reminds me of Joey on Friends - "how you doin'?" (did you do the accent in your mind? I did! lol!)
This is another card that I did with my class this month. We got to play with a couple of the papers - polka dot and plain! I am so in love with these papers already! And, we used The Perfect Blend and Swanky Backgrounds stamp sets.
This is the inside of the card. The coffee beans are carried into the inside of the card - still in the four corners. The a*muse studio ink is so wonderful that even though it's a pigment pad, you still get the detail in the teeny bean image. AWESOME!!!
Here's a close-up of the center cup/flower/paper element. The a*muse studio flower actually started out plain. No really, it did! See the picture below. But,with a little touch of the very tip of the copic markers, a polka dot flower was created to match the papers and copic colored coffee to go cup. Super fun way to create fabulous flowers to match whatever project you're working on.
This paper flower is the cosmos and can be purchased on its own (100 for $6.95) or you get 16 or so in the Meadow Mix pack which is a variety of 100 flowers for $6.95. (look under embellishments). I got these little beauties in my starter kit and let me tell you, it's sure been fun to play with them!

Ok - I've got to get back to my custom order of 100 favor boxes and then will work on some custom card orders and swaps. Fun stuff! Have a wonderfully creative day!

*GASP* oh my gawsh Seleise, seriously, I have this box of white flowers very similar, BIG box I bought in the cake decorating section at Wal-Mart and I don't think I've ever used em. I think I just needed inspiration on what to do with them and these polka-dots are the CUTEST!! Oh, I'm sooo trying this soon. Teeheee... THANK YOU for sharing!! You card is cute too, and YES, I actually said it like a New Yorker friend of mine in college used to say it... heavily accented! ;) Funny.
