LOC NR Thankful Cup

I am sneaking in another sneak peek before the Layers of Color Tea Party Blog Hop- we are counting down now - I hope you are able to join us in a few hours!  You can find all of the details  further down the post or at the Layers of Color Blog - Party Central!

I am showing you the gorgeous new set Teacup Blessings art stamp set - who doesn't love a china teacup or mug - tea just tastes so good!!

This divine cup has been coloured with SU Chalks - there are a variety of sentiments that fit on the inside of the cup and the saucer - giving such a fabulous variety - for most occasions.  The teacup is cut out and popped up onto some Webster's Pages

I have added some shimmer to the rose - you can just see it in the photo above

along with the embossing and dimension here!  This is one of the cards I am teaching next week in my Card Design Class at my LSS, along with one of my other LOC New Release cards - believe me I have a few to choose from - I made over 30 of them, with more almost finished - yes, I am obsessed, but it all helps when I sell my cards as well - I have sold over 2000 cards and need to keep my supplies happening - well, that helps justify it anyway!!  LOL!
This card is for the following challenges:
Crafty Pad - Lots of Texture
Gingerloft - Make It Sparkle
One Stitch at a Time - Anything Goes
Pile It On - Your Favourite Technique
Glitter Geeks - Tea Party
Auds SentimentsChallenge - Must Have at Least 2 Words in the Sentiment
Meljens Designs - No More than Three Layers
