I have had the new Tea Shoppe set on my desk waiting for inspiration, and these colors did it!
Here are a few highlights from the card:
- I stamped the teacup on Whisper White and cut it out by hand; the tag is not just tucked in, but taped down...lol
- I wanted to soften the DSP from Everyday Enchantment so I stamped the Netting background stamp in BLushing Bride on Vellum and adhered.
- Since I am never sure how to hide the adhesive for vellum, I covered two edges with ribbon, and two other edges with buttons from the Twitterpatted button set.
I also wanted to try a technique I saw on the Clean and SImple online class last week. These colors seemed to work well with it too so...
It is a fun tone on tone dimension technique. For each of the flowers, I punched several layers. Each flower is actually four layers; the top one is Calyso Coral, and the bottom three layers are Blushing Bride. This is so fun! Here is a close-up....
I love dimension; instead of seeing the dimensionals you see whatever color of cardstock you have chosen for the layers! LOTS of possibililties with this technique!
Holiday from work today! yay! I am thinkinh about my service goals for this year; I am organizing a Linus Make a Blanket event at work, and also going to pursue some work at the Ronald McDonald house in New Haven (Stampin Up is a huge supporter!)
