It’s time for our Create with Connie and Mary Inspiration Monday challenge! We have a striking stack of black and white teacups as our inspiration today! My grandmother had a huge collection of teacups. She often entertained ladies who played the Bridge card game, and each would have their own unique cup! When she passed away, each of the grandchildren got to choose one of her teacups as a remembrance.
Of course, what else could I use besides Stampin’ Up!’s Cup of Tea Bundle for today’s card! The Brushed Metallic Cardstock really sets off the black and white Perfectly Penciled Designer Paper!
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Basic Black cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- The Deckled Rectangle was cut from a 4 x 5-1/4 piece of gold Brushed Metallic Cardstock with the DIe and added to a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Basic White cardstock, then to the front of the card.
- The teacups were cut with the Teacup Dies from the Perfectly Penciled Designer Paper patterns.
- Additional teacups were cut from the gold Brushed Metallic Cardstock and the handles and bases trimmed off and added to the DSP ones. Then they were stacked on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The lemon from Cup of Tea was stamped with Daffodil Delight Ink and the leaf with Parakeet Party Ink on Basic White cardstock, then cut with the Dies. They were added next to the bottom teacup with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Enjoy was stamped with Memento Black Ink on Basic White cardstock and cut with the small tag. It was added to the top teacup with some gold Simply Elegant Trim.
- A bow was tied with gold Simply Elegant Trim and added to the handle of the bottom teacup with a Mini Glue Dot.
- The heart was cut with the Die from Gold Metallic Paper and added to the center teacup.
