Tea Cup Wishes

Hello dear blog friends,

Hope you are all well and enjoy watching the Olympic games on TV as much as I do. I put an hour or two aside to make this card yesterday which I like to share with you. The challenge at the Shabby Tea Room is the inspiration behind this card. I used one of my neglected Spellbinders dies, Nested Tea Cups, to create pockets for the sentiments. I love the way it turned out and I think in future I will definitely use this technique again.

Challenges:

The sentiment tags hidden in the tea cups

A peep at the inside decorated with fishtail banners

A close-up of the tea cups and flowers

Project details:

  • White and pink cardstock
  • Upikit Designer Paper
  • Prima Designer Paper “Flights of Fancy Collection”
  • K and Company Designer Paper
  • Spellbinders Shapeabilities die “Nested Tea Cups”
  • Tim Holtz Alterations die “Vintage Lace”
  • Sizzix Framelits die “Tags, Rounded”
  • Marianne Design Creatables “LR0116”
  • Lili of the Valley sentiment stamps
  • Prima flower “Lilliput Roses Teaberry”
  • Fabric Rose buds
  • Pearls
  • Lace and ribbon
  • Tim Holtz Distress Ink “Tea Dye”

Thanks for visiting today, it is much appreciated. Enjoy your week and happy crafting.

Regards from South Africa,

Amelia
