Tea Cup Cards

Welcome, and thank you for visiting again.  

I have not had much time to paper craft recently as I have been sewing a very special project, so looked up these two older projects to share tonight.

The main image is from the Layers of Color stamp set Tea Cup Blessings. It was stamped in black ink and coloured with chalks, and the sentiments added as I wanted them - there are several variations available.

The image was fussy cut and mounted over a half doily cut using The French Pastry doily die by Cheery Lynn.

This was mounted over the background, which was part of a sheet of dp from the Prima 6x6 stack Fairy Flora, over the green card stock, run through the textile texture embossing folder by Provo Craft.

The  final touches were the pink bow and two strips of pink ribbon across the base of the card.

The second card uses the same stamp set and doily die, and is mounted over some dp from 'way back' and some wallpaper that I have rubbed a pink ink pad over.

This time the image was embossed before colouring, and the card finished with some stitched pink ribbon and Kaiser craft pearls in Plum and hot pink.

I am linking this to:

Thanks for calling by - may your day be blessed.

What a crafty idea! These really do remind me of the gorgeous little tea cups...especially those my next door neighbor used to have stored in her china cabinet. Ahhh, the memories! Thanks for the flashback!
