Precious Friend

Today I made a set of CAS Teacup cards. I used my Stampin’ Up Tea Shoppe large tea cup stamp. I really love playing with this imageIMG_9560editedIMG_9480edited

 Sorry, these photos aren’t too great. It was about 100 F here today, we have had the Rolladens all closed up to keep the house cool. When I went outside the sun was blazing and I couldn’t wait to get into the relative coolness (no air conditioning) of the house. So it was a quick photo session!

I can’t decide which card I like the most. I really do like the pink version, but I’m going to play the black one over at CASology’s Week 158:Precious.

Wouldn’t you love to have a nice cup of tea and one of these?

scones and jam

I would! My family and I are going to be vacationing in Kent, England this Fall and I can’t wait to have a lovely scone with clotted cream and jam. Yum!

I’m going to play this at Virginia’s View Challenge #16: 100% Stamping, and SSS Monday’s Challenge: coffee or tea?

The design for this card was inspired by Leigh’s great sketch:

I was going to play this card at CTS, but I missed the link-up by about 1 minute!

I’m also going to share this at HLS’ CAS Challenge: Stamping.

2 Cups of Tea

Today I have another tea-cup card to share with you.

IMG_7630editedI used a SU! stamp from the Tea Shoppe stamp set.

IMG_7631editedAfter I stamped them, I heat embossed the cups.

IMG_7632edited

I used an inked up embossing folder to stamp the background.

I added small heart stamps from a PTI stamp set.

IMG_7640edited

I put a lot of stamping into this mixed media card.

IMG_7641edited

It’s quite pink and girly, don’t you think?

Repeat Tea, 2

Today I have a tea-cup card to share with you.

IMG_7523editedI used a SU! stamp from the Tea Shoppe stamp set. I stamped the background repeatedly with SU! Wisteria Wonder. Then I colored on the large stamp and fussy cut it out. The sentiment is from PTI’s Southwestern Style stamp set.IMG_7649edited_edited-2
