The Paper Players: Tea Party..

Hey,

Today I am playing along with the current Paper Players challenge.


As I am English and tea is like blood / oxygen to us it seemed like a theme for me. It also felt like a great opportunity to use a bit of shameful NBUS...I have that this pretty stamp set 'Warm Solutions' by Clearly Besotted for over a year and it has seen no ink..

I don't believe that they sell it in the format I have it in anymore, but they do have lots of other versions of it.

I didn't go with the vintage tea-cup colours for my card, I decided that my tea-cup collection would be shades of blue!

I stamped the sentiment first, then stamped the first cup and saucer and masked the cups as I went, so I could create a little stack of cups.

I decided to add the little 'steam' heart and I'm glad I did, it really finished off the card nicely.

  1. I agree - the steam heart finishes off this delightful stack of tea cups perfectly! Great masking too. The patterns are so pretty and the different blues you've used make them extra nice. It's a lovely card, Claire - and since there's a big British influence in New Zealand, a good cuppa is important to us too. Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players this week.
