You Are Tea-riffic

Today I am playing along with the Paper Players Color Challenge.  These colors are so fresh and bright and exactly what I need this time of year.


I have been making a lot of cards featuring flowers lately and wanted to do something different.  I was also itching to break open a new stamp and die set…..Watermarked Photo 1 (2016-02-17-1626)

For sure, I am a tea drinker…about 5 cups a day!  So this set was destined to live at my house.

The stamp set, A Nice Cuppa is wonderful.  Especially if you are or know someone who is fond of tea.  Now couple this set with coordinating dies and it is simply awesome.  And factor in that it is available as a bundle for saving some $$$ and you really should buy it!

I love the little details in this set, like the lemon slice and the tea bags that I used on this card.  I think everything is pretty much evident on what I did to create the card.  The only thing that may need explaining is how I created the banner.  I cut a piece of DSP from the Subtles stack and trimmed it to 2 3/4″ x 4 1/2″.  Then I used the Lots of Labels Framelits and ran it through the Big Shot until just the bottom was cut…do not go all the way through or you won’t have the straight edge at the top.

For the inside embellishment, I used the heart die from the Treat Bag Thinlits and backed it with some DSP.  The size was not exactly the width of the card and you can see that it wasn’t exactly centered…but it still looks rather sweet.

I am going to send this to a fellow blogger, who I really enjoying reading and get so much inspiration from.  She is tea-riffic!

Thanks for looking in today and I hope you have a tea-riffic day!
