Right!!  On to a project!  Here is another card made using the fabulous new A Nice Cuppa set ...
This is NOT my usual style of card but I kinda like it!  Of course the teach cups are/were my focus … I may tweak the twine … nonetheless …

I used Bermuda Bay card stock for the base and ran it through the Lacy something-or-other embossing folder (dunno the name but it is current … cause I checked before I used it … cause I'm awesome like that!).  I obviously added a doily to the card stock.  For the tea cups ….

I stamped the image on whisper white card stock with Versamark ink, added black embossing powder and heat set it.  To get the cool colours for the writing I simply grabbed my markers.  Whisteria Wonder, Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay.  I coloured over the words (which were white when I started) then I wiped off the entire cup ensemble with a dry baby wipe to remove any extra marker from the black embossed area.  Actually - I lie.  I DIDN" wipe it … but I should have!  BECAUSE I didn't wipe it I ended up with smudged ink on my white card stock that I hadn't embossed.  THAT meant I had to take my scissors and cut out the tea cups the old-school way!  Not what I intended to do but I like the result!

I added some Crushed Curry Bakers Twine and then my clear Wink of Stella glitter pen.  Ooooooo wait tip you get your hands on this stuff.  Deliciously sparkly!!!!  I just applied it to the raised parts of the embossed image.  It added a much needed POP to the final project.

Kinda love this set.  Just sayin'

Right!  I'm off to tidy up - new couch is being delivered shortly.

Pop in again soon.  Until then, have a stampy day!
