Tea Together | Mother's Day Card

I am excited to share that the Tea Together Stamp Set (from the 2019 Occasions Catalogue) and the co-ordinating Tea Time Framelits (originally available as a 2019 Sale-A-Bration free item) will be carrying over to the 2019-20 Annual Catalogue.......which I am really happy about as the card I am going to share with you today was the first time I've used this pretty stamp set and matching dies.

My card was totally inspired by a combination of creative challenges and I'm really happy with the outcome.

The layout was inspired from this weeks Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #385, my colour palette comes from the latest Just Add Ink Colour Challenge #454 and it was all started with this weeks What Will You Stamp Challenge #216  to use the Tea Together Stamp Set.

So apart from being happy about using a stamp set and dies that I haven't had a chance to play with yet, I was also able to #loveitchopit by using some DSP and #loveituseit by using some ribbon from my rather large stash :)

The DSP used comes from the retiring 2018-2020 In Color 6x6 pack and I chose the Blueberry Bushel and Whisper White dot pattern.

My tea cup was stamped in Memento Black ink on some Whisper White cardstock and cut out with the co-ordinating tea cup die. I also stamped the flower in Memento and using some scraps to mask off parts of the tea cup,  I was able to partially stamp the image. The flower was coloured in using a blender pen and my Blueberry Bushel and Pineapple Punch inks... as I don't have the Stampin' Write markers in these colours. I did use my Coastal Cabana Stampin' Write marker for the leaves (but you could again use the blender pen and ink pad if you didn't have the marker).

I stamped the Mother's Day sentiment on a piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock in Coastal Cabana ink, and then ran it through my Big Shot using the Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder. I cut a small strip of the Pineapple Punch Grosgrain Ribbon and adhered it to my card base using a thin strip of double sided tape.

The final touch was adhering my tea cup using some Mini Dimensionals.
