A Couple of Cuppas

Happy March to you.  Even though this February is a short month even on a leap year, the month was a little too long around here.  I am happy that March has arrived and brought some warmer weather with it.

I am playing along with the Paper Players sketch challenge today….

I had fun with this sketch and here is what I came up with….

Being an avid tea drinker for most of my life, I was sold on the Nice Cuppa stamp set and the Cups & Kettles dies as soon as I saw them.  I think I would describe this card as “quaint”.  Whenever I think of tea that’s what always comes to mind.  I choose the background DSP for the same reason.

I die cut the cups and then embossed them with the Elegant Dots embossing folder for a little more texture.  The little flowers are die cut from Baby’s First Framelits and the Tree Builder Punch.  I really like that you can use framelits and punches on so many different projects.  They are so not limited to their coordinating stamp sets, that’s for sure.  Pearls are added to the center of the flowers.  The sentiment is from A Dozen Thoughts stamp set.

When I went to embellish the inside of the card, I intended to leave it blank to write a personal note.  But I still like to put some matching DSP on the inside.  Well that little piece of DSP is all I had left of this particular pattern….that’s it.  So I had to make due!  The little stamped heart is from A Nice Cuppa stamp set.

I’ve listed all the products I used on this card below.  If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you.  Thanks so much for stopping by today.
