I must agree with everyone else - this is a very pretty interpretation of the gift card. I especially like how you did the brayering. I haven't had mine out for a while so this gives me a good excuse to play with it! TFS!

Mike --Your hop post re-posted this morning. You may want to check out your scheduling. It is a nice card, even the second time around! B

Oh, Mike, your card is wonderful and is truly inspired! Love that you shared your inspiration with us, too! Terrific!

LOL. Hi Dana,
I had to laugh out loud when you mentioned the bakery case. Believe me my eyes are there too, but it is all gold and brown, so not much color inspiration there. I guess blueberries could have been the blue, but I dont even waht to think about the green! ;-)

Thanks for your kind words. I just had to try it as I really liked the effect. Never tried brayering before this project, so Im pretty pleased with the result!

Your stamps went out today. Please let me know as soon as you receive them!

Take care and thanks again for everything,

PS - The Holiday Mini Catalog is now available with great ideas for the upcoming holiday season. Dont miss out on some limited edition products.

This is just awesome! I love how the colors all work together! I am going to take a closer look on my future Starbucks runs. Thanks for the inspiration!

Martha Stewart

Love your take on the Starbucks gift card. You must always be on the look out for card designs!!

Dawn G.

Fabulous Funke! You are a true artist!!


Linda Callahan

Well I am grateful you are a Pal! Love the inspiration and the very cool result!


Wow! What an eye you have.... my eyes would have been on the goodies in the bakery case instead of the gift cards! LOL

Your card is a wonderful take on their graphics... Love the colors! Who needs the Color Coach when you can find such inspiration all around you? (Well, I guess I do........... LOL)


Your card is just exceptional! I love Starbucks but never thought to use their beautiful artwork as a card! What a wonderful idea! You are such an inspiration!

Hey Mike! Well, I've been all the way around the hop! I loved everything. You are all such talented people!
I'll be back for the brayer tutorial. I don't own one yet, but I've seen so many beautiful things, I may have to order one.


Very Pretty Mike! I love the background!


Very striking card -- you really did a great job on it. Brayering, hmmmmmmm, I gotta go back a take my brayer out!

Very nice. I am having a hard time posting comments. My internet is giving me a hard time. So if you end up with an extra comment or 2, you will know why. Very nice work. TFS and God Bless.


p.s....I hope my system works this time. Tried posting twice now.

TALKING ABOUT lucky commentor will get a cup on me. Remember to visit all the Hop Stops and leave a comment on them.

Very pretty, Mike! It so totally reminds me of your inspiration piece!


You are so on it Mike! Never thought of using Starbucks for inspiration but duh, what a great place to get it! And another reason to go to Starbucks.
