Stampin’ Up! Cup of Tea Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, today for our hop we have a sketch challenge and I could not wait to ink up one of the new stamp sets from the annual catalog that is coming soon.  I am using the Cup of Tea Suite which includes a stamp set, dies and the cutest DSP ever.    Enjoy the hop and please stop by our other creative team members blogs to see what they are sharing today.

The Sketch:

Stampin’ Up! Cup of Tea:

The Recipe:

Card base: Basic White 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 scored at 4-1/4

DSP panel: Tea Boutique 5-1/2 x 4-1/4

Mat: Basic Black 4-3/8 x 3-1/8

White panel: 4-1/4 x 3 embossed with the Subtle EF

The Details:

  • Die cut two tea cups using the Tea Boutique DSP
  • On a piece of Basic White card stock stamp the following images:
  • Leaf images: Garden Green
  • Flowers: Daffodill Delight
  • Tea tag sentiment: Tuxedo Black Ink
  • Die cut the images using the Tea Cup Dies

The Sentiment:

  • Stamp the sentiment using the saying from the Cup of Tea stamp set with Tuxedo Memento Black ink onto Basic White card stock
  • Die cut the sentiment out with the Stitched Rectangle Die

Putting the Card Together:

  • Attach the DSP to the card front
  • Attach the White embossed panel to the black mat
  • Attach this to the front of the card with Dimensionals
  • Adhere the Sweet Sorbet teacup to the right side of the embossed panel
  • Tuck the pink teacup inside the Sweet Sorbet cup and attach with Liquid Glue
  • Attach the die cut leaf image inside the pink tea cup with liquid glue
  • Adhere the sentiment to the left side of the art piece with liquid glue, tucking the right side under the tea cup just a bit

Finishing Touches:

  • Make a double Sweet Sorbet Bakers Twine bow and attach it to the tea cup handle with a Glue Dot
  • Attach the flower and small leaves with liquid glue to the left of the sentiment
  • adhere the other flowers to the greenery in the tea cup with using liquid glue
  • Place a tiny pearl on the center of each flower and you are done
