The gift of friendship – I LOVE Tea

I’m back again today with another card just for fun!

Here’s my card using Uniko Studio’s I LOVE Tea and Background Builders: Squared Clear Stamps.

    Some simple stamping of the cup and sentiment + a smidge of masking and fussy cutting + a touch of silver gel pen + a splash of watercoloring + a pinch of stenciling + lots of lovely white space = a CAS Cup O’ Tea card.I LOVE this cup and the SWEET sentiment!

I love it so much that I made 4!

It’s a good thing too because look at what is happening at my house!

CAS Coffee & Friends

Hi! I’m here with a quick post. I have a CAS coffee themed card to share with you.  

I used this Uniko Stamp set that I won during the Winter CLBH.

I also have the I Love Tea set, but my household goods just got packed up and crated. So, I won’t have access to that for 3-5 months. It’s a super cute set, though. Check it out!

slide007I continued to piece together the mugs (and then pieced in the snowflake and “thanks’ into the popped up mug) and dry embossed the group on the card front.

slide006  slide002I had a lot of fun using this technique. I love paper piecing and bold, bright, graphic designs.

Thank you, Amy and all of you coffee-lovers, I’ve been so glad to be with you as the Guest Designer for January at Coffee Loving Cardmakers.

Thanks for stopping by!
Grace & Peace,
Melissa

Coffee Loving Cardmakers: January Guest Designer – January 20, 2017

 

https://i0.wp.com/coffeelovingcardmakers.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/GuestDesignerSlider.jpgHi! I’m very happy to be with you today with a third post as the January Guest Designer for Coffee Loving Cardmakers! I have an unusual sort of card to share with you today.

I combined 4 of my favorite products, from different companies, and also altered the stamped image of one of my favorite stamps.

Here’s my card, using, at least in part, one of my favorite rubber stamps.

This stamp set is one of my first, and favorite, rubber stamp sets. It is Stampin’ Up’s (discontinued) Tea Shoppe.

You can see that I used only the outline of the large cup.

slide009I stamped the design on the cup with this stamp set from Papertrey Ink.

Fair Isle Borders Stamp Set

I also used these lovely snowflake dies.

I used the CUTplorations “hugs” word die for the sentiment.
