a cup of tea...

Hello... popping in with a card for a couple of challenges:  AAA - CASing Angela and Colour Me...! 


I used the Clearly Whimsy Stamp set Time for Tea Additions, as well as Whimsy Stamps Time for Tea Additions die set.  I admit that my CASE of Angela's card is a pretty loose one, but I did try to keep to the overall design of her card and even got some of the colors too.  Patterned papers are from Stampin Up! (Sunshine & Sprinkles).  I got my gold in by using some gold mirror paper which you can see peeking out underneath the black cardstock.  I did do some partial embossing of the black cardstock to break up the starkness of all that black. 

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white & black; Patterned Paper:  Stampin Up!; Stamps & Dies:  Clearly Whimsy Stamps; Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black; Embossing folder:  SU! Decorative Dots
