Teariffic New Year

Howdy, folks!  I'm back with the first card of the new year, and we're starting off with one of my favorite things:  TEA!


There's a new stamp set called A Nice Cuppa PLUS matching Framelits in the new Occasions catalog, which starts today.  I used the Framelits to cut out my teacup, and the heart and sentiment stamps are from A Nice Cuppa.  The patterned paper is new too, it's a 6x6 stack called Love Blossoms, and it just happens to be the perfect match for this week's Global Design Project color challenge:


I also used a slightly altered version of the Create with Connie & Mary sketch:


I made mine a standard A2 size card, and I left off the thin element (which to me says ribbon) because I thought it would be just one thing too many with all the patterns I already had going.  Besides, Coco Chanel says you should take a look in the mirror before you leave the house, and take one thing off.  And Coco Chanel knows from elegance, which is this week's Cupcake Inspirations Challenge:


So there you have it!  I've got a busy day ahead, peeps; an old friend is coming for dinner so I have to do some cleaning and a lot of baking.  I'm making homemade rolls for dinner tonight plus something for dessert.  And dinner, obviously.  Cheers, peeps!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  A Nice Cuppa
Ink:  Garden Green, Rose Red
Paper:  Thick Whisper White, Garden Green, Love Blossoms DSP Stack
Accessories:  Cups & Kettle Framelits, Circles Framelits, Dimensionals

Very nice. LOVE the teacup framelet! And the paper just speaks "Old English" to me. Good job, Kik!

Is it your "little" from Baylor coming to visit? Have fun!
