I used the Stampin’ Up! A Nice Cuppa stamp set to create my card for the Happy Stampers blog hop. We’ve got a color challenge to play along with this week and this is what I created for it:
Here are the colors that we’re using this week:
I started by adhering a panel from the Have A Cuppa DSP Stack to the front of a Wisteria Wonder card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Using liquid glue gives you a little wiggle time before it’s set permanently so that you can make sure that everything is lined up perfectly. 🙂
I cut the teapot out with the Cups & Kettle Framelits die from a panel of Have a Cuppa DSP and adhered the pieces with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to a panel of Whisper White card stock. Then I stamped the sentiment from the A Nice Cuppa photopolymer stamp set in Wisteria Wonder ink on the Whisper White panel. I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Wisteria Wonder card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue, then to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I punched four branches from Wild Wasabi card stock with the Bird Builder Punch, snipped the long ends off them and adhered them over the teapot with Glue Dots. I punched several flowers with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack punch and adhered them with Glue Dots over the leaves, then added a Pearl Basic Jewel (on sale this week!) to the center of each flower.
I tied a loose bow with Bermuda Bay 1/8″ Stitched Ribbon, then slid a piece of Whisper White Baker’s Twine through the back of the bow. I tightened up the bow, then tied one of the Have a Cuppa Embellishments to the bow with the Whisper White Baker’s Twine. I trimmed the twine very close to the bow and adhered the bow to the panel with a Glue Dot.
I adhered a strip of the Have a Cuppa DSP to a Whisper White panel inside the card.

Wow! Love the patterns on your flowers, I thought you might have done it with a gel pen. You really gave them so much dimension and they look like real flowers in a pretty teapot 🙂 Nicely done Amy!
Thanks Jill! It was way easier than a Gel Pen…just punched them out of DSP. 🙂
Such a gorgeous card – I love everything you have done! There’s a link on my blog to the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.
