Ah, Tea Time!  I'm a huge fan of Tea Cups and have a small collection of Tea Cups that I've collected or have given to me by a very good friend and mentor.  As a young girl, I loved to hang out with our neighbor, Ellie.  Over the years, she has passed on little gifts and family heirlooms to me that she knows I appreciates.  My mom also loves to collect Tea Cups.  Truthfully, I'm not a "big" tea drinker although I do know how to make a proper cup of British Tea as taught to me by my "cousin" Heather who is originally from the Coventry area of England.  These are just a few of the reasons why I just love the Stampin' Up! Tea Shoppe Stamp Set.

Card Sketch #27


Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch 27 featuring the Tea Shoppe Stamp Set and Tea Time Trinkets from the Spring CatalogTea Time and the Tea Shoppe come together to feature some wonderful Stampin' Up! products.[/caption]OK… I will admit that I did struggle a bit with this card.  IN my mind I had a mental picture of how I wanted the card to look based on the card sketch.  The large tea cup in the Tea Shoppe stamp set is the key focus of this card.  I stamped the tea cup on Very Vanilla with versamark then used the Wild Wasabi embossing powder to heat emboss the tea cup.  My next steps were to select my remaining elements.  I really like the basic gray card stock as base for this card which is layered with Very Vanilla then Designer Series Paper ("DSP") called Fan Fair featuring Pink Pirouette as another primary color.  The flower is created using the Blossom Punch to punch out three flowers from the Pink Pirouette card stock then they were crumpled and bound together with an Antique Brad.  I then tied a Tea Time trinket around the brad.  The "White Peony" was stamped with Basic Gray ink then punched out with the large oval punch and scallop oval punch. 

So, I hope you enjoy some "Tea Time" on me!
