A Cup of Tea

     Today I made  one card for two challenges at My Favorite Things, the Sketch Challenge and the Color Challenge.  Using the cute Tea Party die-namics  and coordinating stamp set I created this card.  I  love this stamp and die set because I am a big tea drinker and tea almost always helps  me feel better  when I am feeling under the weather. Here is the card with the tea bag inside the cup.




And here is the card with the tea bag outside of the cup.




To start the card I used kraft cardstock and the Lined Up Dots Background stamp with brown ink.  The flowers and greenery are from the Pretty Posies stamp set.  I made a saucer for the cup from the Oval Shadows die set.  For the sentiments I used the Cup of Tea stamp set.  A few colored dots finished off the card.



 
 
 
Thanks so much for looking and have a great day!

Mix It Up Challenge

      This months Mix It Up Challenge at Ellen Hutson is to use a Pink Fresh Studio product along with an Essentials by Ellen product. 



For my card I decided to try an ombre  effect using Altenew inks along with the Felicity stamp set from Pink Fresh Studio.  I created a striped background using the same colored ink I used to stamp the birds.   I also used the Fancy Thanks stamp set from Essentials by Ellen.  I don't know why, but I really like the bird stamp in this stamp set.  I combined it with the graphic background stamp that is also from the Felicity stamp set.  A few black pearls on the tag finished off the card.

Thanks for visiting and have a great day!
