Coffee or Tea?

 So excited to share my first post with you with the new Stamp Simply Clear "Coffee or Tea?" stamp set and 

Take a look at the new set and dies:

The back ground is layered decorator paper: Kaisercraft's "High Tea." Perfect, old fashioned and lovely prints, perfect for tea cups!

I die cut the tea cups and tea bag with the Stamp Simply dies, then mounted them with Thermoweb 3D Foam Strips onto the background. The tea bag is tied on with May Art's Burlap String. 

The sentiment from the stamp set is stamped with Versafine Sepia Ink and a Tonic Tim Holtz Stamp Platform, then die cut with a Spellbinder Scalloped Rectangle die (similar HERE).

Venise Lucia white lace acts as a border and a bit of frill.

Take a look at the inside sentiment:

I paper pieced the inside border, then layered the sentiment over it.

All linked supplies are from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you are all enjoying 
the holiday season!

Deb this is one of my all time favorite cards! That paper is perfect for a tea party! Probably my favorite paper ever! Love the tea cups! This card is so me! I had a tea party for my bridal shower and hot tea is one of my top 2 dtinks. This card reminds me of good times at my Grammy's table. Drinking tea with her in the morning and afternoons on the weekend! Thanks for reminding me of her today. Love those tea cups!

Praying you all have a blessed Christmas!
