There's a lot of coffee lovers out there, but I am NOT one of them! (tastes like HOT DIRT as Laura Bassen would say!!) However, I am a hot tea lover and hot chocolate too, so it makes sense that one of my favorite dies is PTI's Fancy Tea Cup die! Here's what I came up with using the same die for different cards:
I'd say a Thinking of You and Christmas are definitely 2 different types of cards!
For my 1st card I used some Hibiscus Burst DSP and gold mirror cardstock for the Fancy Tea Cup die, and then filled it with flowers that I stamped and fussy cut using PTI's Farmer's Market Florals. I attached them to a Scalloped Tags Die (PTI) that I stamped repeatedly on a diagonal with the sentiment from Tea For Two Additions (also PTI). I used the same set to stamp a bunch of tea cups with versamark ink on the Hibiscus Burst panel.
For my 2nd card I chose to make a Christmas card with the Fancy Tea Cup die and the adorable little mice from PTI's Christmas Critters.
I kept this card pretty simple as I wanted the focus to be on the antics of the 2 sweet mice decked out in their Christmas finery and the tea cups! I used PTI's Bitty Big DSP in Pure Poppy and Green Parakeet for the tea cups and the little strip on the side of the card base, and then inked up the scarf and sweater in the same colors.
A little hard to see in my pictures, but I double pop dotted the tea cups in the centers so I could curve the tea cups to add some dimension and make them look a little more realistic with the mice under and in them. I finished with a simple sentiment from PTI's Christmas Critters Sentiments.
Darnell and the DT have some FABULOUS cards to inspire you and the challenge is open till the 24th, so get out those coffee cups and mugs, or glasses, or tea cups, and have some FUN playing along! You can check it all out right HERE.
I would also like to add my cards to the Double D challenge, where they are asking for Coffee and/or Tea, and I think my little tea cups fit perfectly for this challenge too!
