Coffee Loving Cardmakers – You’re Just My Cup of Tea

Hi everyone! It’s time for another Tuesday Tea over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today. I had some fun playing with the secondary images in a new-to-me set from Hero Arts called Mouse Tea Party. There are some adorably cute mice in this set ready for a tea party, along with great sentiments and other fun images too.

I stamped and colored images from the set with my copic markers, keeping to pinks and oranges because I knew I wanted a blue/teal background so they would pop and not get lost. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and moved on to getting inky.

I blended chipped sapphire, peacock feathers and speckled egg distress oxide inks on a while panel, then splattered it with water and pearl watercolor. Then I trimmed the panel down to 4.5×4.25 inches and added a strip of white glitter paper to the bottom. I added foam tape to the back and popped it on a white card base. Then I stuck that in my MISTI and stamped a sentiment on the bottom right side.

Next, I added foam squares to the back of my images and popped them in place. Moving on to finishing touches, I added glossy accents to the mushroom dots, and parts of the teacup and teapot. Then I went ahead with a little more sparkle by adding stardust Stickles to the steam, butterflies and flower centers.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. I hope you’ve found some inspiration to create something wonderful and share it with someone too!

Have a fabulous day!
