Stampin’ Up! Tea Together and Beautifully Detailed Paper for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today we had a color challenge of Balmy Blue, Night of Navy and White.  The colors reminded me of some old china patterns from my childhood, maybe that why I was inspired to color rose buds on my tea cup today.

I used the Beautifully Detailed  Laser-Cut Paper for the very first time.  Can I say, WOW, this paper is so delicate and wonderful to work with. It really made my tea cup card just pop with an added dimension.

Here is the color challenge:

    Lovely card, Kristi! Perfectly layered and designed with that gorgeous laser-cut paper! 🙂

  2. Jaimie says:

    Ohhhh I love how you used the colors!!! The laser cut paper is perfect with a tea cup!!! Gorgeous

  3. Julie Johnston says:

    Oh, My, Kristi! This is wonderful. I agree, the colors make one think of Blue Willow, or Blue Delft china. Don’t know why I didn’t think to use the tea set for this. Maybe because I needed sympathy cards, and the tea set just didn’t fit that need. Great card. Can’t wait to see what your Alternate Monday brings,

  4. Sue Prather says:

    Such a pretty, pretty card, Kristi! I love all your details and feminine touches. And the frame! I will definitely be CASEing this for my display rack in my studio.
