Tea For Two

Good morning, Friends! I hope your week is going super!! It does seem to be going awfully fast! I need these summer days to slow down a bit. Nick has a haircut this morning and then we need to get the car serviced and then he is having a friend over and then there is baseball practice! Whew!!! I am glad his friend is coming over because that will keep him busy and I can play with my new goodies that just came yesterday!! Yea!!! I got the box when I got home from my massage but I was soooo relaxed that all I wanted to do was 'veg'. So I am looking forward to playing today!

Today's card was inspired by an element that I saw in the new catalog. The Stampin' Up! catalog is a little different in that it doesn't always show a whole card. Their intent was to leave a little to our creative imagination. Most times you can figure out what the rest of the card looks like. But this time I just took the element I saw and made up the rest. I stamped the row of tea cups from Tea Shoppe in Primrose Petals along the bottom of the card base of Primrose Petals. I did have the help of my Stamp-a-ma-jig for this. Then I took a piece of Primrose Petals card stock and ran it through the Big Shot with the Designer Frames embossing folder. I stamped the sentiment image from Tea Shopped in Basic Gray, Summer Starfruit and Primrose Petals inks onto Whisper White. This is punched out with the extra large oval punch. Behind the oval I, I attached a strip of Summer Starfruit and a strip of Basic Gray. This is then popped up onto the Designer Frame, which is then popped up onto the card. I added a little rhinestone to finish it off. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
