A Cup of Tea for Mom

This month the Stamp of the Month features 6 great teacup and coordinating images along with 5 sentiments which you can order for just $5US with a qualifying purchase.  That sounds Tea-riffic to me!

I decided to take some inspiration from the photo in the Seasonal Expressions and instead of a scrapbook I changed it to a 3.5 X 8 card.

I softly water colored my teacup to not smudge the pomegranate ink.  The sugar rush papers gave a fun texture to the base of the card.  I added a small piece of Sea Glass glitter paper on the inside edge to show under the scallops.

Remember the stamp of the month is only available during the month of March so order yours today by visiting my webpage http://www.papercraftingprincess.ctmh.com.

I’d appreciate it if you took a moment and let me know what types of cards you like to make by leaving me a comment.




Sweet Tea

Welcome back…I trust you all had a good weekend?  Today is my hubby’s birthday and in honor of his Texas roots I wanted to bring you a little Sweet Tea!

Seriously, I never drank sweet tea until  his baby sister introduced me – it’s so much better when she makes it, so I always task her with the chore when she comes to my house!  I digress, you’re really here to see my card, right?

This little gem of a card was inspired by a couple of the cards I received in my Stamp of the Month Swap – I had wanted to find a use for that little tea tag, but it wasn’t coming to me right away (I guess that’s why I should participate in swaps more often).  Using the papers from the Sugar Rush Paper Packet led to using my watercolors on the tea cup and tea bag tag.  I’m still getting the hang of my watercolors, but I’m starting to like the natural blending that happens.  I then poked a little hole in the top of the tea bag and the top of the cup and just let it dangle. I loved the interaction it added to the card, but it wasn’t hanging just how I wanted so I eventually added a piece of 3D foam tape and popped it up.  See that banner of words – it’s one of the zip-strips from the paper packet.  NEVER overlook these…they are perfect to add as an embellishment to a card or scrapbook page and don’t cost you anything extra!

Make sure you get your March Stamp of the Month before it’s gone…it’s a Tea-riffic deal at just $5 with a qualifying purchase!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you’ll take a minute and leave me a comment telling me if you like sweet tea?



Tea with Friends

It’s like a virtual tea party here on my blog this morning…

Each month my upline hosts  a Stamp of the Month swap sometimes I participate, sometimes I just kick myself for not.  This month I received four amazing cards and picked up an idea for a card of my own that will appear here next week!

Each of these cards is so different and that’s the really great thing about this stamp set, it goes with just about everything.

Make sure you get your Tea-riffic stamp set before the end of March – you can order it here.  Thanks for stopping by – see you soon!


A Cup of Tea-riffic

Happy Friday!  I’m back with another card from the March Stamp of the Month set Tea-riffic.  Have you added this set to your shopping cart?  This set of 11 stamps is one your going to turn to time and time again…it’s the perfect blend of friendship and Mother’s Day.


Today’s card was made using the plain cup colored with the Shin Han Touch Twin markers and then I stamped the sentiment you are tea-rrific in Memento Ink.  The pretty floral background paper is from the Dreamin’ Big paper packet and the XO ribbon is from the Uptown Ribbon Pack.

Here’s the entire set of 11 stamps – make sure that you get yours before March leaves.


I’ll be back next week with some more fun artwork made using this stamp set.  Thanks for stopping by and sharing a bit of your Friday with me.  If you haven’t had a chance to visit the Stamp of the Month blog hop – grab a cup of tea and visit my blog where you can hop around for some more ideas.
