A Nice Cuppa

Pin It
Yesterday I made a card using some more new product that arrived in the BBB yesterday.
I'm loving the Occasions Catalogue, I think it might be the best one that Stampin' Up has put out.
My wish list was/is still long.
Today the Stamp Set is A Nice Cuppa.
 The colours I have used are Soft Sky, Lost Lagoon and Whisper White.
There are 11 photopolymer stamps in the set.
 I have used this weeks sketch  CYCI#104 from Can You Case It Challenge site.
The lace stamp is from Grateful Bunch Stamp Set also in the Occasions Catty.
I love that it looks like the tea cup is sitting on a shelf or table with lacy table cloth on it.
I cased this idea from Lyssa from Song of my heart blog, she is a US demo.
 I used a Tea Lace Doily for the circle shape on the sketch.
Grateful Bunch is set of 8 Photopolymer Stamps and there is a matching punch to match to the flowers in the set.

 I stamped the tea cup first in Softy Sky, them stamped the words in Lost Lagoon on top.
The I used the matching Cups and Kettle Framelits Die, with you can buy in a bundle and save 15%.
I untwisted some retired bakers twine to separate the fibres and tied a bow with it.
In the inside I stamped the lace border and a sentiment.
Go and look at the CYCI site, there is still plenty of time to play along.
