LOC NR Celebration Cuppa

How are you enjoying the new release sets from Layers fo Color - aren't they divine!  Teacup Blessings art stamp set is so lovely and such a pleasure to create with!

I have embossed the DP with the Jamara Enbossing Folder - I love the texture embossing adds to papers and cardstock

The Teacup is stamped onto white cardstock, coloured with SU Chalks, using a Blender Pen and then cut out.  This is layered onto a Doily from the Spellbinders Floral Doily Motifs, using foam tape for dimension. The Doily has been cut with the Spellbinders Grand Calibur.

Kindy Glitz has been added to the flower on the Teacup, only lightly to give a light shimmer.

You can see the depth of the embossing on the DP - gorgeous!

I have added some hand dyed Seam Binding - I love this product, you can dye it to match all of your ink pads - I have used Glimmer Mist and Reinkers for this card.

This card is for the following challenges:
Die Cuttin' Divas - Shaped Die-Cut Cards
