CTMH Quotable Words, Beautiful Friendship and Splash of Color | tea stamp set | CAS card design

You may know that I spent two weeks with my folks up to and through my mom’s open heart surgery. Thankfully she is doing well – the doctor said her heart looks great! She does have some secondary complications, perhaps because of her age, and I’m heading back for another week before school starts up. I had a rough idea of this card in my head and this sentiment from Close To My Hearts new set called Quotable Words jumped out at me. I randomly stamped the teapot from CTMH’s Beautiful Friendship (cardmaking) stamp set in Mink and then used one of the “splats” from Splashes of Color to lay down a base for the sentiment. I stamped this in Sweet Leaf ink – I wanted a color dark enough to form a mat but not to overshadow the teapots. Next I stamped and die cut the teacup on a scrap of Basic Grey paper that I came across today – the colors went together perfectly. I also love that Close To My Heart offers so many thin cut dies that match their stamp sets!

I’ll be posting sporadically again for the next week but don’t forget about my two week heARTful stamping challenge where I’ve teamed up with Double Trouble! Hopefully you’ve received my newsletter by now and if you aren’t signed up – you can still get a copy sent to you by signing up in my left sidebar…or check out all of the specials in my right sidebar! I think i’m up to date on everything!
