Tea Time card trio

What a great day it was today.  It began with some playtime in my craft room and just got better after that (including some much needed cleaning and organizing).

I used the Hello Gorgeous collection from My Mind's Eye to create a trio of tea themed cards.


All of which work well for the Curtain Call challenge - girly


First up, I trimmed one of the pattern papers to create a flowered border.  I then added a tag, a die cut tea cup (from Simon Says) and the tea bag is from Reverse Confetti.  I also added a stamped circle from Papertrey Ink (Tea for Two) and as a final touch stamped a repeated sentiment.


Next up, I used the Tea for Two stamp set along with the Wet Paint Cuts both from Papertrey Ink.  The spoon is a Simon Says die.


I played along with the sketch from Retro Sketches:

Finally, the last card that I created.  I used the She stamp set from Unity to stamp along the edge.  Once again, a spoon die from Simon Says.

Played along with the CAS(E) this sketch:

Beautiful cards! Not as many people use pattern paper anymore, but you sure use yours to perfection! Maybe you can singlehandedly bring the use of it back to the forefront with your pretty cards! :) So glad you got to play.
