Just Because Card - Teacups


This adorable teacup stamp and doily embossing folder came with the Quick Cards Made Easy magazine back in the June issue and they go together so beautifully.


I inked the inside of the embossing folder with "Tattered Rose" Distress ink before embossing the cardstock.  That is how I got the effect of the light pink background with white doilies.  I will be sharing that technique in "Distress Ink Techniques Part 4"  later this month on my YouTube channel jjgz4ever and it will also be on Scrapbook Blessings Club .

 I had that corner piece that was a leftover scrap and it fit perfectly so I had to use it.  I stamped the teacups on glossy cardstock and colored them with Spectrum Noir markers and then cut them out and used foam tape to adhere them to the card.  For fun I added sequins to make it appear that tea is spilling out of the tilted teacup.  On the side I embossed a strip of white cardstock and attached ribbon and a bow to it and attached that to the card.  It all came together perfectly.

HAPPY CRAFTING!!!
