cup of thanks...

Today's card reminds me of my room after a stampin' party - cups and mugs everywhere! Well who can craft without a cup of tea?! Anyway, on to today's card.

Cup of Thanks

Stamp Set: Tea Shoppe
Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Marina Mist, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Peach Parfait, Perfect Plum, Basic Black
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Marina Mist, Peach Parfait
Punch: Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border

A really colourful card for you today - thought the teacups needed a bit of spicing up! I think they look like the odd 'vintage' tea cups you see around these days! Each cup was cut out and then they were stacked. I added some of the flowers to one of the cups...yes they make cute flower pots too! I used some of the ribbon border punch for a ledge and finished off with a cup of thanks sentiment. 

So did you like this sweet tea cup of a card? 

Thanks for stopping by, 

Happy Stampin',

  1. Love your stacked cups and choice of colours. x

    1. Thank you! They remind me of the the old tea cups stacked in my Granny's cupboard! :) xx

  2. This is lovely! I love the added details to the teacups!

    Because our home is so small right now, I'm using the coffee mugs for my tea :( But I have grand plans of shopping in the antique and vintage stores for REAL teacups when we build! Tea always tastes better out of pretty cups!

    1. Wow that sounds awesome! I think I could probably spend a fortune collecting old tea cups - I just love all the different patterns, colours and designs. Down side is they hold a disappointingly small amount of tea! But you're right, it always tastes better! xx
