I have been wanting to make this card as soon as I saw this fab new set! I started by brushing some acrylic paint on some kraft cardstock. After that was dry, I rubbed some black ink across the whole thing. Then I spritzed on some gray and brown ink.
For the focal image, I stamped three of the cups in the following Gina K colors: Blue Lagoon, Applemint, and for the third cup I mixed Bubblegum Pink and Tomato Soup to get just the right color of pink.
For my next card, I paired some pastel colors with a dark gray cardstock. I embossed two of the cups just using clear detail embossing powder. For the background, I stamped a couple of the images from the Flower Builders stamp set using White pigment ink.
For this card, I was going for more of a retro vibe. I adhered a piece of patterned paper at the bottom to ground the cups. I used Gina's Black Onyx ink and Cherry Red (my most favoritest red in the whole galaxy)! Before stamping the red cup, I sponged on just a little bit of darker ink, to give it that mottled vintage look. I actually have a cup like that! :-)
