No One Stacks Up to You

Hello friends,

A clean and simple card to share today. My card features a clear stamp set from Brutus Monroe “Tea Time” . I coloured the cups with watercolor pencils in earthy colors to match the kraft base card . I added dimension to the card by lifting the panel off the card base with mirror tape. I finished off with red heart gemstones, a wax cord bow and a stamped sentiment.

I entered my card in the following challenges:


The teacups


The sentiment and little heart


A peep at the inside


Project details

Kraft and cream cardstock — Brutus Monroe stamp set ” Tea Time” (BRU4646) — Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils — gemstone hearts — Wax cord for bow — Tim Holtz distress ink “Vintage Photo”

Thanks for stopping by. I love reading your thoughts in the comments below. Have a wonderful day!

Kind regards,

    Hi, Amelia, It has been a while since I last visited your blog! And, of course, I find that your work is as beautiful as ever. One of the pleasures of returning to health and returning to crafting is seeing projects like yours. I love kraft card creations and this one is full of crafty goodness. I think you have inspired me to get a stamp and die set I’ve been eyeing. I never knew how I would use the set but your CAS design has given me an idea. Thanks for supporting my new challenge, A Place To Start!
