Stampin' Up! In the Moment Tea Cups for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

 


Welcome to the Happy Inkin' Thursday blog hop. You're in for a treat if you have never visited before. It's a weekly challenge and this week we have a sketch challenge. Links to the team hoppers are at the bottom of this post.

Here's our sketch...

I used the In the Moment Stamp Set for the outer sentiment, the inner sentiment and image. I also used the Teacup Dies, Stylish Shapes Dies and Deckled Rectangle Dies. Take a look see...

Here's another view of it standing up.

The bottom silver strip looks more white. Someday I'll become a professional photographer like my brother!


My colors are Balmy Blue, Starry Sky and Tahitian Tide. I also used the Silver & Gold 6 x 6 Specialty Designer Series Paper that I colored with my light Balmy Blue Stampin' Blends and also cut out the design on the first tea cup. One tea cup has Brushed Silver Foil on it and the trim on the front was done with that as well. I cut another piece of it with a die from the Stylish Shapes Dies and heat embossed the sentiment with VersaMark and White Embossing Powder. I adhered the sentiment with Stampin' Dimensionals because the heat bent the foil. The flowers are fussy cut from a pattern in the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper.

For the inside, I did a number of layers to mimic the front. I used the 2nd, 3rd and 4th largest Deckled Rectangles Dies.

I was inspired by Jolanda Johnson who is Guest Designer at Double Trouble for their 118th Challenge - Relaxation Celebration and I decided to throw my teacup into the ring! I'm playing with all three Things, thus I'm also entering my card at Crafter's Cafe Challenge #288 for National Relaxation Day.

If you have any questions about my card, just let me know in a comment.

  11. Hi Karen! Thanks so much for all of your comments on Splitcoast. I was so surprised and happy to hear from you since it seems e-mail just doesn’t work for us. I adore this teacup card and the beautiful colors and those flowers are amazing! I hope you are doing well and if you see a deal for me to come there in September let me know!
    Hugs!

    1. What a pleasant surprise for your visit and thank you for taking the time to comment on my card. I can't believe a place as big as Phoenix doesn't fly into Orlando or Punta Gorda via Allegiant!
