Cup of Joy


Here I am posting yet another tea/coffee themed card! I honestly thought I'd be doing good to submit one a day, but as it turns out I keep finding inspiration and things I want to try. Besides that, I really wanted to submit at least one more card to Power Poppy's "Black and White with a pop of color" challenge. So here goes...



To create this card I:
  • Stamped the Script Background Stamp (Stampin' Up) on white card stock with Tuxedo Black ink (Memento) and matted it on black cards stock
  • Embossed a piece of white card stock with the Mosaic embossing folder (Cuttlebug), matted it on black card stock, and layered it on my first piece
  • Printed two sets of Easy Breezy Coneflowers (Power Poppy) on watercolor cardstock
    • colored the images with Prismacolor Pencils, adding highlights with watercolor markers
    • fussy cut both images, cutting out just the flowers from one and popping them up over the other with mouting tape
  • cut a teacup from an online template, added strip of paper lace (Eyelet Lace Border Punch - Martha Stewart) and a Baker's Twine Bow
  • Die cut the sentiment from the Hello Doily die set (Sizzix) 
  • Added two black sequins

This is GORGEOUS, Esther! I love the black and white with the sweet touches of light purple. It's so lovely against the white background. You are SO super creative, and I enjoy and appreciate your art SO very much.
Blessings,
