Tea cu 05739
Today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC482) is a Pinterest Board full of Tea images. I didn’t have to go far to pick my inspiration…I chose THIS set. Tea sets usually make me think of lavenders & purples so it really appealed to me.
Tea 05738
The tea set was stamped & colored very sparingly with Copics, then die cut & I used a pale lavender Copic around the edge. I used a scallop die twice to cut the lower edge of the larger white panel & also edge the top scallop w/ the same marker. On the top of this panel, I lined up the alphabet dies, die cut them, then trimmed the top down. I used the actual die cut letters, cut in half, for the top part & added a little aqua Copic to them. The tea border was stamped across the bottom of the die cut lavender panel & I added a die cut bow & tea rose on the side. The edge of the large lavender panel was also shaded a bit w/ the lavender marker.The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.

The two challenges today on Splitcoast, the CAS281 (a color challenge) and the TLC490 (stamp, punch) seemed doable as a combination, so that was the direction I went.  My card isn’t quite as clean & simple as I originally intended, but it’s close enough for me, since most everything is punched or die cut. 

The fun greeting was stamped on a large die cut tag and again a few times on scrap pieces. I used a multi tag punch to punch out parts of the greeting, then added a some color w/ my Copics and popped them up on top of the original greeting. The teapot & cup were die cut and I added a scrap behind the roses parts that I also added color. The peach doily was die cut as well as the white & coral layers. 

The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.

Today’s sketch challenge (SC369), was for me,  a real challenge! It looks great on Taylor’s Abracadabra card, but it gave me fits. It just felt awkward to me to add that strip across the bottom so in the end I just tacked on some little butterflies. Oh well.

I used a couple of new sets from Our Daily Bread designs. I stamped the teacup full of flowers then stamped the greeting on vellum and placed it on top. IRL, the teacup is a little more obvious. The frame was stamped and the inside cut out and placed on top of the vellum. I stamped another frame in yellow and a third was white embossed on cobalt. I had to cut these two apart to fit them around the original frame.

For my diagonal strip, I punched two strips of the cobalt and put a piece of ribbon down the middle. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.
