How Have You Bean?

Here's my card for the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  I used the new coffee themed stamps and dies from Right at Home for my simple thinking of you card.

How Have You Bean? card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Right at Home
I stamped the "how have you bean?" sentiment from the set with the same name on a piece of textured blue cardstock (that's why the stamping isn't so great on the word "bean"--it's not due to either the stamp quality or user error!).  To go with the sentiment, I stamped up a to go cup using the coordinating Cup of Joy stamps and dies. I shaded the cup a bit with warm gray markers to give the white a little depth before using foam tape to adhere the cup to the sentiment panel.  After edging the panel with kraft cardstock, I adhered it to a piece of patterned paper from my stash.  The finished panel was adhered to a kraft card base.

Materials Used:
Cup of Joy and How Have You Bean? stamp sets, Cup of Joy dies (Right at Home); Memento Tuxedo Black ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); markers (Copic); Baja Breeze textured cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Kraft cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Aspen Frost-Strudel  designer paper (Basic Grey); foam tape
