Today I’m playing along with the Spring Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop but I hope you didn’t miss my entry and post as a Super Sponsor right here! It was a beautiful card (I can say that, right?!) and totally different from this creation…
What rubber stamping supplies do I need to make this card?
I was inspired by a card I saw a few weeks ago but I failed to pin it and can’t find it now. Rats. I used a waterbrush and some ink off the lid of my CTMH Pomengranate ink pad for the tea cup. This cup is from CTMH’s March Stamp of the Month called Tea-rrific and so you can only get it this week yet (or, win my Super Sponsor prize! tee hee). I used the rubber stamp set from their Here for You Cardmaking Kit to stamp the foliage around the border. This is one of my favorite quick and easy techniques…I call it “faux watercolor”. I inked up my stamp with CTMH ink and then spritzed it lightly with water before stamping on watercolor paper. You can always spritz the paper a little more or use a waterbrush (which I did here) to spread some areas out even more. I did fussy cut my tea cup before popping it up; but, lately CTMH is carrying more and more matching thin cut dies with their stamp sets. Yay!

I’m loving all the sentiments and tea cup images in this Tea-rrific stamp set. Don’t miss out on the extra prizes I’m offering on my first hop entry!
