I know, I know….I already posted once to day. But all of a sudden I realized that the Dynamic Duos challenge ends today at noon PST. So, I am, once again, just slipping in under the wire. Here’s the color combo for this week’s challenge:
Can I just say, I am a huge fan of yellow with green? I had to play, right? So here’s my Life is a Cup of Tea card:
I embossed Pistachio Pudding cardstock and then hit it lightly with a little Picket Fence Distress Stain. The So Saffron panel was cut with a Spellbinder’s die. I used a cute acrylic stamp set from Darsie’s Heart and Home collection called (appropriately) Cup of Tea. I used the rose stamp with Versamark to create my background, and heat set it with Ancient Gold Embossing Powder. The edges were sponged with Scattered Straw Distress Ink.
The teacup was stamped onto So Saffron cardstock using Versamark ink and heat set with Super Fine White embossing powder from Ranger. I don’t know i f you can see it here, but in real life, it looks like old porcelain, which is very cool.
I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Whisper White and then put it onto the tea tag–which I saved from my morning cuppa! I used small dots of white glue to hold the string just the way I wanted it.
Thanks for letting me share my Life is Cup of Tea card. Those of you who know me are aware of my lifelong love for a good cup of tea! How about you? Are you a tea drinker? Coffee float your boat? Cocoa? Let me know….I love hearing from you because your comments make me happy right down to the tips of my crafty little fingers. Now, keep calm…and put the kettle on!
