I created two different cards using the Tea-rrific—March Stamp of the Month, one using only the flower and one of the sayings for one of the cards and the other card using a tea cup image.
For this Good Times card I stamped & fussy cut the flowers, I did stamp the flower a couple of times where I wanted it to sit on the card, but added the coloured in fussy cut flower on top. I used the grey woodgrain paper from the Dreamin’ Big Paper Packet and the lace ribbon from the Rustic Home Ribbon Pack and used Colonial White Cardstock as my base. I liked how the paper and the flowers at the top corner & the one little flow in the opposite bottom corner has made you focus in on one of the great sayings that is in the Tea-rrific-March Stamp of the Month set.
For my next card I wanted a to create a Tea Cup full of flowers, my Nan would often place the dandelion flowers that I picked in a tea cup, instead of vase often because they had such short stems & well she was being nice to display them. So this card reminds me when I was little picking flowers & filling a tea cup, though they never looked as pretty as this card.
The cup and the flowers ha ve been coloured in with ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ Markers, blending the blues together to create the ombré look for the cup and using different colours for the flowers.
I used one of the Z strips Dreamin’ Big Paper Packet and some Silver Foil Tape to go with the silver colour I added with the Silver Metallics Markers only because I could not find my Gold one at the time anywhere!
And the tea bag by the way a very last minute addition – you know the ones you add to hide the black mark you somehow got in a random spot after you put the card together! Anyway it now looks complete with it.
And I’d love for you to leave a comment before you head on over to the very talented Doris Taylor Creative Inspirations to get more wonderful ideas on how to use this stamp set.
Enjoy the hop & thanks so much for taking the time to check out these ideas with this month’s Stamp of the Month. I hope you enjoyed what I created, as much as I enjoyed creating it.
See you soon.
