Tea Party for Mom

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you are having a great weekend. Today marks the start of a new sketch challenge over at Sunday Stamps...check it out:

And here is my take on it...

Mother's Day card featuring the A Nice Cuppa stamp set and Cups and Kettles Framelits
Now, I'll admit I took a few liberties with the sketch, but the basic shapes are definitely there :)
The banner element is die-cut from It's My Party DSP using the Banners Collection Framelits. I layered it on a Smoky Slate background, embossed using the Happy Heart TIEF, and a Tea Lace Doily. I added a tea pot that I die-cut from Birthday Bouquet DSP using the Cups and Kettles Framelits. I added a little bit of scalloped detail in Blushing Bride. The "steam" is also die-cut using the Cups and Kettles Framelits.

The sentiment, from the A Nice Cuppa stamp set, is stamped in Smoky Slate ink on Whisper White card stock and then punched using the 1-3/4" circle punch. I layered it on a 2" Mint Macaron circle and a 2-3/8" Scalloped Circle in Blushing Bride. For a little sparkle, I added a few sequins from the Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit.

Inside view with sentiment from the Crazy About You stamp set.
On the inside I added a Whisper White panel on which I stamped the sentiment from the Crazy About You stamp set in Smoky Slate ink. I added the stamped heart from the A Nice Cuppa set in Blushing Bride.

This card reminds me of a "real china" tea set I had as a little girl...the colours match it perfectly! Now, it's your turn to give this sketch a whirl. Be sure to share it with us at Sunday Stamps...we'd love to see what you come up with!
