Summertime Tea

Hi y'all!  Happy Saturday!  I hadn't planned on posting today but last night I got a little stamping time in before Mark got home from work and I love how my card turned out.  It's VSN over at Splitcoaststampers, which means there's lots of fun challenges going on this weekend.



The AUG10VSNA challenge was to make a clean & simple (CAS) card inspired by food that reminds you of summer.  I just love sitting out on the patio in the cool morning sun drinking tea, so I pulled out A Cup of Life and got inky!  The teapot is a little retro, so I knew I wanted a vintage look to my card.  I stamped the teapot and cup in black, embossed in clear and then colored and shaded with Copic markers.  The steam is stamped in pumice stone and embossed in clear, then I added the two sentiments in cherry cobbler and black and sponged around the edges of my Labels 12 die with Pumice Stone distress ink.  I added a black mat with some little white gel pen dotted accents, then cut into some of my new favorite paper from the gorgeous Lost & Found line by My Mind's Eye.  For a little flair, I ruffled a bit of ribbon I thought matched the teapot and tied it together on one end with some linen thread and a button.  I finished off with a curled corner up top and three little red rhinestones to highlight the sentiment. And I was done in just over 35 minutes, which means it's totally CAS for me!  LOL 

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have a fabulous day!

  5. oh, a cup of tea sounds delicious as we're having a cold snap here...it feels like October instead of a hot August. Love the pops of cherry cobbler (which would go great with tea!! LOL) and how the ribbon matches the stamps :)
