Cup of Thanks

Inspiration

The teacup from the Tea With Bella stamp set (part of the new Bella Rose Collection at Heartfelt Creations) is so fun - it can fit lots of occasions! And the swirly leaves from the Bella Rose Leaves set can be used with the new matching dies, that really make it a snap to cut out their intricate design! There are lots of creative examples for using all the new sets of stamps on the Heartfelt Creations blog - be sure to visit to see all the beautiful work from the design team.

I made this card for the woman at work that is officially an "admin", but in reality does anything and everything to help things run smoothly. She just finished up two weeks of playing hostess to customers visiting in our office, making sure all were kept comfortable and well fed, and is now headed on a well-deserved vacation!

Instructions

Images

Stamp the teacup image on white paper, and stamp the bottom of the cup with the rose again. Stamp the leaf swirl in brown on white paper, and cut it out using the matching "Leafy Spray" die.

Trim the cup and rose image closely, then cut out just the roses from the bottom of the partial image. Color all with COPIC markers:

  • Cup: C00, C1, 0
  • Flowers on cup: RV66, YG05
  • Leaves: YG21, YG23
  • Roses: RV63, RV69
  • Stems: E87, YG21, YG23

Sentiment

Stamp the sentiment in purple ink on white, and punch out the image with the oval punch. Cut and emboss the tag with the die cut machine, and mount the white sentiment on the tag.

Assembly

Punch the pattern around the purple square, and mount it on the front of the card. Then add the patterned paper on the punched square.

Glue the leafy spray image onto the card, then mount the sentiment tag at the bottom of the square.

Mount the teacup to the card using foam dots, and the rose cut out on top of the roses at the bottom of the cup, also using foam dots.

Thanks for stopping by!
