We had a kitchen themed swap on StampersoftheUSA and I loved the chance to use this old stamp of mine... a super sized cup and saucer! Here's what I did with it and with a hang tag from my morning tea.
There are only a handful of rubber stamps used to create this card. Two different types of lemons, the words, the cup and saucer, a tea bag, the words "TEA packed in Sri Lanka" and then the definition of 'tea'.
The Tea Cup I colored in with a copic marker, while the lemons were inked up with Marvy pens. The rest of the card was stippled with a brush and Memento inks.
Another card mailed out this week went to my friend Gail to celebrate her birthday this month. I have fun creating this card as I used a game ticket from the Circus Circus hotel and casino in Reno, NV where I visited earlier in the summer.
Gail's a big circus fan and I thought she'd enjoy this card made with Tim Holtz's images and dies. I hope you do too! :)

In creating this card I found that thin metal dies do not cut out Mylar material. The first balloon is Mylar and has a great shine to it.. then the orange and green balloons I die cut from a light weight glitter stock. The strings are pink glitter and glued behind the little man.
Yes, alot of work went into creating this card, and I packed it up well in a box prior to shipping today... but I know my friend will love this card and cherish it for many years to come.
Thank you for looking and please feel free to leave a comment!
