Simply Cards & Papercrafts 159

Hi Everybody,

The gift this month with my favorite magazine  is really useful and can help you to make some really pretty cards.

The video to show this set is called  SC&P 159 - Time for tea  and I have had some fun working with this stamp and the teacup die.
There are so many ways that this can be used for you to change things up with every card that you make.

In the stamp set there is a bird, flowers, a macaroon and a little teabag that you can add tiny sentiments too There are lots of other sentiments that you can create your own greeting with

The flowers can be used in either the tea pot or ta cup and the little bird perched on either as well and the tea cups can be stacked together as you wish

The video will give you some ideas that you may like to try and I hope you enjoy the ideas and the video
This little card is very soft and gentle and I really liked the finished effect.

I stamped the flowers in Antique Linen Distress Inks and then used the palest pencils in peach and light browns, pale sage green and a really pale pink to get the look

I splattered the card with another pale colour and wrapped the peach ribbon around the layers

I cut a circle of parchment and stamped and heat embossed the sentiment

The sequins add that little extra to the card and I perched the bird onto the parchment circle with foam pads underneath the raise it up

So because of all the video releases  there is no Friday Freebie card give away for this week  ...  but it will be back soon 

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

    see more ideas for tea cups. The High Tea is an annual
    party so I'll be doing this again next year probably. I'll be watching for ideas. thanks for sharing.

  14. Hi, Christina,
    I love all the cards you've made. Sadly I've had to cancel my magazine subscriptions as I've started subscribing to Craft Box every month so watching your videos and reading your blog help me decide if I need to rush down to Smiths any month to pick up a mag😊
