Tea Shoppe

Tea Shoppe is a very sweet stamp set, featured in the Occasions Mini Catalog.  This was made using the soft color scheme of Bashful Blue and Perfect Plum on a background of Pale Plum (retired).

The big cup image was colored with markers, then stamped on Whisper White, "fussy-cut" by hand, then adhered with Dimensionals onto one of the larger Label Collection die cuts in Perfect Plum.  The sweet and intricate doily was die cut using the Big Shot and the Paper Doily Large Die was nestled under the Perfect Plum Label.

Not able to be seen in the photo, the Perfect Plum flowers on the cup were embellished with Crystal Effects to make them "pop."  The sentiment is also from the Tea Shoppe set and punched out with the Scallop Square Punch. Very simple, yet elegant.

Here's a completely different card from the same Tea Shoppe set, using the trio of cups stamp image and a couple of different patterns from the Twitterpated Designer Series Paper.  Lots of punches used here:  The striped paper was edged in the Scallop Border Punch. The Lace Ribbon Border Punch was used for a Pear Pizzazz strip under the focal image and a Baja Breeze strip was edged with the Scallop Trim Border Punch on the bottom.  The White Peony Tea Shoppe logo sign near the top was stamped on Whisper White and punched with the Large Oval Punch and matted on a piece of Riding Hood Red punched with the Large Oval Scallop Punch.
