Cups & Kettle Framelits

OK, I must admit it.  I purchased the Have A Cuppa Bundle, but I’ve really only used the Framelits!  There are a couple extra framelits that don’t have coordinating stamp images and I gravitated towards using them!  Here is one card where I used the small coffee cups and Going Places Designer paper, along with Suite Sayings stamp set to make a wedding card…notice the interlocking handles?


Cups and Kettle


Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Crumb Cake, folded in half.
  • The top third portion of the 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Lost Lagoon cardstock is embossed with the Delicate Dots Embossing Folder.
  • On the 2-1/4 x 4 piece of Very Vanilla, the “ground” image from Timeless Textures was stamped with Crumb Cake Ink.  Forever greeting from Suite Sayings was stamped with Tuxedo Black ink in the upper right corner.  This piece was adhered to the front.
  • At the bottom, a 3/8 x 5-1/4 strip of Going Places DSP was added.
  • Two coffee cups were cut with the Cups & Kettle Framelit from Going Places DSP.  The handle of one was sliced at the bottom so that they could be interlocked, then placed on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The heart framelit in Cups & Kettle was cut from Crumb Cake and adhered with the Fine Tip Glue Pen between the two cups.


Isn’t that a non-traditional wedding card?  Of course, change out the greeting and make it birthday, friendship or whatever you want…so appropriate for almost any day!

I even opted to skip the bundle and buy only the framelits. That’s a first for be, but I liked the framelits much better than the stamp images.
Nice touch of interlocking the cup handles. I would have never thought of that!

Oh, I thought that image was supposed to be the creamer. However, there is no little sugar bowl. Anyway, don’t you love those framelits? I am using them, even without the stamp set, too!! A winner for sure!!! Thank you for all the great ideas on your blog. 🙂
