Hello again. I’m popping in to show you what we made in card class this fortnight, using the A Nice Cuppa stamp set, Have A Cuppa DSP Stack, and Cups & Kettles Framelits.

We made 3 cards. For the first card, we started with a card base of Early Espresso cardstock. A card front made from Crumb Cake, was stamped with the Timeless Textures stamp set, using Crumb Cake ink. When this was done, the edges of the card front were sponged with Crumb Cake ink.

The sentiment from Balloon Celebration was stamped in the lower right corner of the card with Crumb Cake ink; and the words ‘Hot Choclate’ were stamped with Early Espresso ink.

A mug was cut on the Big Shot, from Early Espresso cardstock, using the Cups & Kettles Framelits; and a spoon was cut using Silver Foil Sheet. The mug was sponged aroundd the edges with Early Espresso ink. We gently ran the tip of our bone folders around the spoon, to curl the edges of it up. A small heart was punched out of Watermelon Wonder cardstock, and sponged with Watermelon Wonder ink.

A heap of ‘froth’ for the top of the mug, was punched out of Very Vanilla cardstock using the Tree Builder punch, and sponged lightly around the edges with Sahara Sand.

Here is the finished card:

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock, the teacup from A Nice Cuppa was stamped with Wisteria Wonder ink. Once dry, the teacup was given a lick of Stella (yes, my Wink Of Stella is making an appearance again! I can’t stop using it!).

This was then matted onto some Melon Mambo cardstock, and stuck to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. A heart was cut from Melon Mambo cardstock, using the Cups & Kettles Framelits; and a banner of Bermuda Bay cardstock, was stamped with the ‘you are Tea-riffic’ stamp from A Nice Cuppa, using Versamark. This was then heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The banner was then stuck in place over the teacup image, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

A few sequins from the Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim, finished off the card nicely. Here it is:

For the last card, we used a card base of thick Whisper White cardstock. This was then layered with a card front of thin Whisper White cardstock. The card front was stamped with Timeless Textures using Smoky Slate ink.

A teapot was cut from Smoky Slate cardstock using the Cups & Kettles Framelits. A lemon wedge from A Nice Cuppa, was stamped onto Whisper White cardstock with Daffodil Delight, and punched out using a 1-1/4″ Circle punch. The circle was then trimmed across the straight edge with Paper Snips.

The ‘Get Well Soon’ sentiment from Thoughts & Prayers was stamped with Memento Black onto the bottom right corner of the card front; and the rest of the sentiment was stamped inside the card using Memento as well.

A few strands of Silver Metallic Thread were looped and held in place under the teapot and lemon wedge; which were adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A few Metallic Sequins and Basic Rhinestones finished off the card.

Here it is:
