Shortly after the holidays, I passed by the little mini Starbuck's at Safeway over in town.  So far, I have resisted this darling Valentine mug, but that's what inspired this design.

Isn't it fun?!  I just punched out some pink and red hearts with my Martha Stewart Multi-Heart punch and glued them into place.  Then I traced around then with a white gel pen and drew stems with little leaves.  The sentiment is in my hand-writing (not a stamp).

Rounded the corners and promptly fell in love quite muchly when I finished.

Yes, quite muchly.


No rubbah involved, just a punch, corner rounder, and a white gel pen on a french roast note card by A Muse

    when i saw that you & laurie s. had also posted cards inspired by the same mug, i wanted to cry. because ~ let’s face it ~
    you guys are rubber ROYALTY!!!
    but your reaction ~ to laugh it off ~ is an infinitely better idea. it IS too funny.
    and i’m SO happy to have shared the moment you all-stars. ;)

    p.s. your card rocks.
    i wonder how many art stores have just had a run on white gel pens!!!

  6. I love this card, Julie! I think I need this heart punch. My poor pocketbook!

  7. Julie…How funny…I work at a Starbucks and actually bought that mug. As I was drinking tea the other day, I was also inspired to make a card similar to the one you did. I am giving it to my husband for our anniversary.
