Happy Rainbow Teacup Stack

Hi! I’m happy to be here today with a happy rainbow teacup stack  to share with you. 🙂


I made this panel by heat embossing the STAMPlorations clear stamp Framed Tea Cups in white embossing powder.



Next I created the rainbow background panel using a variety of Brusho Crystal Color powders. I used the Brushos and spray starch technique that I learned from Kylie of Happy Little Stampers with a piece of watercolor paper.

Then I used a CUTplorations Die from Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies.

I stamped the sentiment with the STAMPlorations Always Tea Time.


After that did some partial die cutting with the smallest of the stitched rectangle dies to make a sentiment panel.img_1759edited

I attached the large panel with the hole in it to a card base and added the tiny sentiment rectangle with adhesive. img_1762edited Then I added the smaller stamped and embossed Tea Cup stack panel to the card base.

img_1761editedI scooted the small panel up a bit from the original position to give room for the sentiment panel and also to achieve a more pleasing design.img_1761-copy

I hope that you have a beautiful day. Thanks for stopping by!

Grace and Peace,
