Happy Friday, y'all!  I couldn't resist making one more tea-related project this week.

All the stamps I used are retired; the sentiment is from A Nice Cuppa and the teacups are from the Take a Sip wheel, which I unmounted and turned into I think eight individual stamps.  It coordinates with the Morning Cup stamp set and in my house the Take a Sip stamps live in the same stamp case as Morning Cup.

Let's start with a color challenge from Inkspire Me:

You know I am here for anything involving Tranquil Tide, and I thought this worked pretty well with my teacups.

Here is this week's Freshly Made Sketch:

And of course the irresistible theme challenge from the Paper Players:

At first when I was working on this card, I had planned to stamp the card base as well but I decided it was just too busy:

The tea rings and splats are from Timeless Textures, but again, it was just too busy for my card and took away the focus from the teacups.  Luckily I hadn't stuck down the main image panel when I made that decision, so I just had to redo my card base.

I'm off to go feed the kiddo his morning Cheerios.  Have a great day, peeps!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Take a Sip, A Nice Cuppa
Ink:  Soft Sky, Tranquil Tide, Soft Suede, Sahara Sand
Paper:  Soft Sky, Tranquil Tide, Thick Whisper White
Accessories:  Dimensionals, Tranquil Tide ribbon

Oh, this is VERY nice. I LOVE the colors. The greens are just so rich. And the way the 2nd layer is offset makes it look "casual". I like the wider ribbon, too. LOVE it. That tea rings (or coffee rings) stamp is so cute. HOW did they come up with that idea? It's greatness, although I am in agreement with you that it just wasn't good for this card. The simple, clean one is best. LOVE YOU!

What a great way to combine two tea-themed stamps Christy - I love the ring-mark base layer and the offset layers, perfect for this week's challenge. Thanks for joining us over at The Paper Players this week!
