A cup of thanks...


Happy Memorial Day to you!!

It is a holiday here in the US and in the UK - whoop!

Today I am sharing a couple of cards I made a few weeks ago using Studio Katia 'A Cup of Thanks' stamps and dies.

This is a pretty new stamp set for me, I have only coloured it before now, I hadn't actually made anything using it.

I needed to make x2 cards - birthday and thinking of you. And I thought the flower-filled cup would suit both needs and suited the people that they are going to.

The thinking of you card, I die-cut the white panel first and then added splashes of yellow watercolour paint to create a fun background that coordinated with the colours in the stamp.

For the happy birthday card, I went with a spotty background paper, a touch busy, but I think it really makes the cup pop.

Both cups were coloured with Copics and Nuvo Aqua flow shimmer pens.

This stamp set ended up being way more versatile than I had expected, I'm looking forward to making more with it.
