Today, I'm going to share with you another one of my Beveled Tea Cups! I had another post planned BUT, DISCOVERED a blog I like to follow, The Shabby Tea Room http://theshabbytearoom.blogspot.com/ has a challenge going that would fit what I've done! I had this pretty Pink Rose English China Cup all ready for a friends birthday!( She'll be getting it early! I didn't want to post before she even got her little package; it would spoil the surprise! ) I had yet to make the card. So, I set about making the card & giving my Tea Cup a little addition! Here is the picture for the inspiration!
The requirements are to create a card or project inspired by the colors & include a flower.
Here's my take on this photo:
My Pink Rose English Tea Cup & Saucer from my own template. I used SU- Elements of Style, Prisma Watercolor Pencils with a blender pen. I also embossed the Tea Cup & the Saucer with the SU- Elegant Lines Folder. I used MS Crystal Fine glitter on the embossed lines, a Gold Krylon Pen, SU- Tiny Tags that I wrote "Happy Birthday" on & a SU- Cellophane bag. I made the Pink Rose from Satin Ribbon for the flower I was to add to my project! WHAT A LOVELY ADDITION! ( I'll have to remember to do this in the future!) Here is a better look at my card!
What do you think? I LOVE this SU set, Apothecary Art! I've had my eye on this set since it came out! I think it matches the set by SU- Elements of Style very well! I used Prisma Water Color Pencils & a blender pen on this too, a Cuttle bug folder- Swiss Dots, Inking the dots with White ink, 2- lace heart doily's, an EK Success Gold Calligraphy Pen- for those detailed areas, Gold Krylon Pen, Dimensionals- used on the wreath, the banner & the Labels Collection Framelits Die, which I edged with MS- Crystal Fine Glitter, the Becca Bow Maker, Jewelry Findings & Glass Crystal Beads. Here is the SURPRISE inside!
"We're so happy when surrounded by
cake I mean FRIENDS." I've been saving this sentiment for sometime, for just the right card! I like to add a sentiment inside that you wouldn't expect! The sentiment is by Eat Cake Graphics. The little cake is by SU- Birthday Bliss, I used the MS Crystal Fine Glitter on the cake, adding gold Stickles to the flame & I wrote in the Happy Birthday!
HOPE you like!
BE SURE to come back next week when I share an "Organization Recipe- for Stampers!"
Take some time to tell someone how much you love them this week!
