Coffee Loving Cardmakers – National Tea Day

Hey everyone! It’s a super special day because, not only is it Tuesday Tea with Twiddler’s Nook, but it’s actually National Tea day and we’re going to celebrate with a whole lot of fun! I’ve got a card share for you and then Amy will pop in with some information about a guest designer opportunity and link up at the bottom. Let’s get started with today’s card share!

Today I decided to pull out a fantastic set by The Cat’s Pajamas called Make Tea. I absolutely LOVE the critters in this set and had so much fun coloring them up. For this card, I stamped and colored them with my copics, then used my scan-n-cut to cut them all out. Next, I pulled out some Lawn Fawn snow day remix paper and the reverse stitched scalloped circle window dies to set my mini scene. 

After die cutting and assembling my papers, I used my MISTI to stamp a sentiment over this very chill tea party that’s going on. Since I chose to make this a last minute Christmas card with the patterned paper used, I pulled out the Trinity Stamps Merry Christmas Senti-mini set and stamped a quick Merry Christmas banner which is popped up with foam squares.

For finishing touches on my card, I added some glossy accents to the critter eyes and noses and their mugs. Then I used Wink of Stella glitter brush pen on the steam coming from the cups. Last, I glued a scattering of Trinity Stamps Cinnamon Red Hots Jelly Drop Hearts across the design.

AND THEN, on a whim, I decided to stamp on the inside of my card today too. I never do this but I have a couple of crafty friends who do and I always think it’s super cute. So I grabbed a bunny that I didn’t use on the front and another sentiment from Make Tea and stamped it in red ink to coordinate with the colors on the front. 

Now, it’s your turn to play! Head over to the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog for information on a chance to become a guest designer with us!

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
