Thank you Starbucks cup card

Hi crafty friends!

So if you have been following along with the 30 day coloring challenge over at The Daily Marker, you likely recall one of the initial challenges was to turn a Starbucks cup into a card. Well when I got my cup  to create my initial card, they double cupped it so I've had this pretty cup lying around so I decided to create another card with it. I couldn't help myself, the cup is so pretty!


So I dissembled my cup and colored in with my Zig real brush markers. I cut out a side border with some of the images and then three more images individually. I over lapped the 3 images and adhered together, I popped this piece up on some dimensional adhesive and added barkers twine behind it.
The striped background is pattern paper from Lawn Fawn.
I scattered some gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to finish off my card.

I loved the challenge of creating a card out of something different and I don't have a whole lot of fall stamp sets so this worked perfectly to create some more fall cards.

Thank you so much for dropping in today! Hope you enjoy your day!



  1. Fantastic use of the Starbucks cup! I absolutely love how you cut the cup up to use as a border & use some of the images as your focal point! Clever! I also love the loose twine behind your leaves! So pretty! Well done!

  4. Amazing colouring and design Shannon! You got a cup! When I was down in Ohio a couple weeks ago no luck and Starbucks is now not two minutes away like it was at my old house! Hope you are having a great weekend!

  5. Beautiful card! I love what everyone's been creating with these fun Starbucks cups. I can't believe I went to Starbucks and totally ended up with a plain cup even though they had the pretty Fall cups! Well maybe next time lol
