Teaspoons and Teacups Birthday Card


Wow!  These Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop days are passing fast!  I've tried to come up with new ideas for my same old stamps.  It had been ages since I inked up my mom's Stampington teaspoons stamp.  I played around with a paper palette (vintage Basic Grey) and decided to stamp the spoon handles onto vellum.  I only inked the handles, not the labels and stamped twice.


I layered over a panel cut with my new Sizzix borders and doilies set my friend Madelyn gave me for Christmas - thanks Mad!  You're the best!  I thought this Tim Holtz chipboard sentiment was perfect and added some staples for a touch of grunge.  ;0  I used the doily from the same set to layer with my stamped teacup.  I've told you before, this stamp is by Prima and I cut the words off of the stamp and glued them to the side of my wood block to make the image more versatile.  I hope you like my design!

In other news, I am working on a new mini album and was going through some of the albums I have made and was delighted to flip through this album first blogged HERE.  The video can be found HERE, just in case it doesn't load for you.  The entire album is tea party themed and uses the same collection of stamps I've used in my card today.  I hope to upload some other flip through videos for you of my albums soon, so let me know if you'd like that.  Thanks!!!  <3

I love your card, Autumn and also that mini-album is so adorable!! The teacup on your card is one of my favorites, I think I've told you I had that set in my hand so many times at my local store but never got it...love your layers and colors. It's tough trying to come up with new ideas for the same coffee supplies, but you always manage to do an amazing job. Love this! Hugs :-)

Beautiful card and love the tea cup

Sara Barker said...

You know I'm not a girly girl, but this card has got to be one of my favorites of your coffee-lovers collection. But I have other favorites, too! Love the colors, the row of teaspoon handles on vellum (yes, I broke out the vellum yesterday, too, for the first time in ages, it seems). The teacup is so sweet and you're very clever to stamp on designer paper. I need to keep that in mind. Beautiful make! Hugs!
