a cup of tea...

Hey friends!!  Popping in with a card for the Spring Coffee Lover's blog hop.  I don't drink coffee (although today I had a mocha frap... but only because if I buy one and two other things I will get 8 bonus stars!), but since you can also enter projects using a tea or cocoa theme I decided to play along.  The color combo comes from this week's Color Throwdown and the layout is based on second Viva La Verve March sketch.  Still working on my huge collection of  6x6 patterned paper so I used up a few more sheets making this card.   The stamps I used are from Verve... the One Cup set.  I die cut the little cups from lavender polka dot paper and then stamped them with the corresponding images using lavender ink.   Panels were die cut from white cardstock and patterned paper using the largest A Jillian Vance Design Polka Dot Rectangle Backdrop die and then the about 1 1/2 inches of the patterned rectangle was trimmed off and adhered to the white panel.   The circles were also die cut with A Jillian Vance Design dies (plain and polka dot circle backdrop dies) from white and red cardstock.  Stamped the sentiment on red gingham paper and the white cardstock circle.  The cup was trimmed from the gingham paper and then adhered to the sentiment.  Adhered the circles to my doily, then to the panel and added the little polka dot cups.  Very simple, but kinda cute. 


Thanks for stopping by today...


Supplies:  Cardstock: white, Simon Says Stamp Fog, Stampin Up! Real Red; patterned paper; Stamps: Verve; Dies:  A Jillian Vance Design and Verve; Wilton doily; Inks:  Stampin Up! Wisteria Wonder, Memento Tuxedo Black

The cups are so cute done in pp, Rosemary! Sweet card! I actually bought one coffee themed stamp last year & still missed the last hop--haha! Hoping to ink it up for the Spring hop. Hope you're had beautiful weather, too, as the rain is coming back soon!
