Over at the STAMPlorations blog, we're doing a two-fer: we're joining the fun Spring Coffee Lovers hop, as well as officially releasing coffee and tea stamp sets designed by me and the awesome Becca Cruger.
In this post, I'm sharing the cards I made using the stamp set I illustrated, Always Tea Time. I'll be sharing cards I made using Becca's stamp set, Bunnies 'N Beans, next week.
CARD #1: Good Things Happen one layer card
I stamped the large tea cup, masked it, and stamped the daffodils (Daffodil Row Artsy Border) in gray ink. I sponged Distress inks (spiced marmalade and mustard seed) all over the card base and then stamped the sentiment. I colored the teacup with Zig Kuretake watercolor. I felt the card needed a little grunge in it so I stamped a grungy border (Mixed Media Elements) and the card is done.
CARD #2: There Is Always Time For Tea one layer card
This card was real easy and quick to make: I stamped the grungy frame (Floral Bliss) and sentiment in black. Then I masked the frame, stamped the two small tea cups in spring colors, and the card is done.
Check out the cards the STAMPlorations girls made featuring our new releases on the STAMPlorations blog.
