The Friday Mashup and Clean and Simple Stamping

I am back for a second quick post for today. I decided to combine The Friday Mashup #44  and the Clean and Simple Stamping #176

I did manage to mash it up, I used the tea pot from the inspiration picture and came close to the colors of red, pink and white.

I used the sketch from the current Clean and Simple stamping challenge, although I did make it a little more complicated by cutting each of the tea cups out and paper piecing the hearts. Each cup with steam as well as the sentiment are popped up with foam tape.

Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Designer Paper - Echo Park, Fiskars-Latte Love, TPC-Coffee Cafe, misc punches and  embossing folders.

Hey Sis,

Your card is so wonderful its got me contemplating changing from my coffee to a tea! You make it look so inviting.

LOVE the wallpaper - really does look like wallpaper you would see in a cozy tea house and the perfect touch is added by it being reflected in the heart embellishments on your cups!

I really like your version of this layout! I'm a huge fan of cutting images out, and it sure made a difference in your card. Love it!

Such a perfect card! I really like it. I love how you can whip up any sort of card.....guess carding was your calling :)
Hope you had a good weekend and that the sun is shining in your neck of the woods today.
