My Cup of Tea

Hi there! Today is a Serendipity Stamps DT challenge day, and today we were challenged to create a tea-themed card.

I used the Heart Cup and coordinating You're Just My Cup of Tea sentiment for my card. I also used the Postcard stamp.

I started by stamped the postcard border and sentiment onto a piece of cream cardstock, then punched the edges with the SU! ticket punch. I stamped the tea cup onto a square of cardstock and then colored it with Copic markers. I matted this with a bit of pink cardstock die cut using one of the postage stamp nestabilities. Some coordinating pink patterned paper, a bit of stitching and some Distress Ink and I was pleased!

Thanks for stopping by today. Please be sure to visit the other Design Team members playing along today to see their take on this challenge!

Have a great day!
