Let’s Sit and Have Tea

It’s Friday…even though is rainy, cold and dreary here today…it’s still Friday!!

My card share today is the result of entering two challenges.  The Global Design Project #33 has a color challenge and the Pals Paper Arts #298, a sketch challenge this week.  I really enjoy combining challenges when I can.  I actually consider it to be more of a challenge.

Since the new catalog will soon be out and some really great sets will  be going away, I am trying to use them more.  The Cups & Kettle framelits are one of those sets, along with A Nice Cuppa.

Although I only used the framelits on this card, I absolutely LOVE this bundle and will keep it here for a long time.  I am a bona fide tea drinker…have been since I was very young.  So anything having to do with tea, teacups, teapots, teabags…is my cup of tea!  I used to collect teapots until my collection outgrew my kitchen and dining room.  Whenever people know you collect a particular item, that’s what you get for every occasion.  I had to put an end to it!  So now I collect tea themed stamps.  They are so much easier to store.

The card base is Sahara Sand with a mat of Calypso Coral and an embossed layer, using the Elegant Dots embossing folder of Night of Navy.  I cut the tea cup using a pattern from the Pretty Petals DSP stack and another from Calypso Coral cardstock, layering the two so that a little of the cardstock would peek out from the cut design in the patterened cup.  After I cut the little heart from the framelit, I added a bit of Wink of Stella to give it a little sparkle.

The tag is cut from the Tags &b Labels framelits and stamped with a sentiment from the Balloon Celebration stamp set.  I added a cute little flower, punched twice and layered, from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, then added a pearl.

I left the inside blank to write a personal note and to invite someone for tea.  Today would have been the perfect day to chat and have a nice hot cup of tea with a friend.

I hope you enjoyed this card and that you will have sometime to have a cuppa…and stamp too!  Thanks for stopping by.  If you have any stamping needs and do not already have a demonstrator, I would love to help you out.  My online store is just a click away and I am just an email away.

Take care and until next time,
