Time for Tea

Happy Halloween to all of my Dies R Us friends!

This week's inspirational DT card for Dies R Us is courtesy of the postman who delivered a pack of new dies from Dies R Us, just in time for me to sit and have a play! One of them was this gorgeous Poppystamps Teacup Stack. I also found along the way that I have a new favourite die too!...

Dies used include:

Eureka Stamps Tea Cup 9701

I used a Eureka Stamps classic tea cup digi to match with my beautiful designer paper. After colouring the image with Copics I fussy cut it and framed it with the Spellbinders Label 1. I dry embossed the frame and swiped it with some shimmer chalk. Here is a close up of the detailed stamp.

I cut out the Poppystamps Teacup Stack in two colours so that I could add the pink hearts and dots as highlights. I used the same blue cardstock for the Cheery Lyn Designs Zig Zag Ric Rac which is my new favourite die as it is quick, easy and visually very effective. I love that now I can easily match some ric-rac to my cards without the hassle of having to colour it in with Copics!

To finish it off I wrote a simple sentiment with the Cheery Lyn Designs Label 1 and added some twine, a cute little tea pot button and some Liquid Pearls.

There is a brand new challenge starting tomorrow over at the Challenge Blog. Challenge #13 is a 'Thankful' challenge. So think about Thanksgiving, Thankful, Give Thanks, Thank You. Be sure to check it out tomorrow as there is some exceptional DT creations from the talented Team A. To be in the running for the $10 voucher at the Dies R Us store simply use a die in your challenge entry.
