Anyone for a little Tea?

Hi Everyone,

This gorgeous stamp set Tea Shoppe (125547- (c) )from Stampin Up first made its appearance in our last Mini Autumn/Winter catalogue, I was smitten with it straight away, so pretty and gorgeous and I'm happy to say it is one that is continuing on, which is delightful :-)

So let me share my little play with these stamps, some of my card designs are CASES and some a little play of creative adventure of my own.

I embossed these flowers with clear embossing powder and it gave them a nice glaze feel, I also embossed the tea cup in white embossing powder.

This card is a CASE from Cindy

This card above is a CASE from Natalie O'Shea

This card too is a CASE from Lana Harvey

I wanted to try this CASE from Monica Gale, because I love the criss-cross scoring and I actually stamped my cup first with colour and restamped over it with the help of the Stamp-Me-Jig tool with versamark and then embossed the tea cup with clear embossing powder. It sort of reminds me of my present kitchen tiles :-) I changed a few bits from the original case.

Anyone who has been doing some research for ideas with this stamp set is sure to have come across this gorgeous one. I tried it because it took me out of my comfort zone with stamping layers, I would have never thought to stamp each stamp in such places before this. I enjoyed the concept.
So its a CASE from here

The entire collection of play with Tea Shoppe so far :-)

Well that was a bit of fun just for starters, I'm sure to give it a good going over further as yet.

  Enjoy - Ruthy 


  1. Whether CASE's or your own, these samples are an excellent reason to buy this set Ruth! Thanks for sharing such fab ideas ♥

  2. Wow you have been busy! Love all the Teashoppe cards. (I think I have them all down in favourites to be cased too. haha.) I think the first one is my favouritest. Vx
