Tea Time

>> Saturday, May 6, 2017

Good morning!

Mother's Day is approaching so it's time to get the tea sets out!
Well, that would be how it was for my mom anyway.  She loved pretty tea cups and had quite the collection!

DRS Designs stamps: Violet Teacup, Dogwood Branch and 
 Inside
I did an Oxide Distress and cling wrap background for the teacup background.  I used some complimentary colors to let the teacup stand out.  I have a drawer full of pretty lace so I used a bit on the front of my card (it has little flowers on it so it seemed perfect).
The inside I just did a simple Dogwood Branch with purple and the only color I added was some yellow stamen.  I also used a sentiment die band from Taylored Expressions and stamped my Happy Mother's Day on it.

My second card is an easel card...I know, I do a lot of those but it is my favorite simple fold.  It is a basket of flowers in thanks for sympathy shown.
DRS Designs stamps: Sincere Sympathy Thanks and Daisy Basket

My dies are from Spellbinders and the embossing folder is from Cuttlebug.
I did just a bit of out of the box cutting toward the bottom of my basket so that I would not have to use a bigger square.  When you turn squares on the diamond they become quite large and sometimes are too big for the overall card size.

Thanks for visiting today and I hope you get crafty this weekend!  Have some fun!!  Remember Mother's Day doesn't have to be just for your mom, if your mom is already gone like mine you can make one for someone else who may be a bit lonely or who has been an influence in your life.

These are beautiful Robin! What an incredible oxide distress background - I may need to search up how to do that one!! Love the sweetness of the 2nd card - yellow, blue and white are one of my favorite color combos!
