A Cup of Thanks

Welcome back to another Saturday challenge from Our Creative Corner. This week Sharon Wheet has challenged us to create something based on an "afternoon tea party" theme. I tend to stay away from food and drink stamps - well, unless they relate to cake or ice cream. LOL. So this adorable stamp by Lockhart was the only "teacup" image I had - hope that counts!

I wanted to use some of the Springtime Vintage paper for this challenge, so based on that I stamped my image with Not Quite Navy and colored it with Baja Breeze and River Rock markers. It was punched with the 2 1/2" circle, mounted on a square of River Rock, then on a NQN scalloped square. Just for fun I added pearls in the corners, and all the edges are sponged. For the DP I used a larger square - both the scalloped squares were made with SU Big Shot dies. I added a bow of crochet trim and retired River Rock ribbon, topped with a NQN button (also retired) tied with linen thread. The base is a 5 1/2" square card with an A2-size panel of River Rock, which I ran through the square lattice folder, layered on top. I used the Tasteful Trim die to cut another scalloped border but then covered most of it up, LOL. The sentiment is by Impression Obsession.

Please join us for tea - I hope you'll visit the OCC blog to check out all the team members' creations and then play along with us!

Love your color combination, Lori. River Rock is a favorite of mine. Beautiful layering and texture. That tea cup stamp is adorable and I can't think why it wouldn't count. Beautiful work on the tea challenge!

Have a great weekend.
