Tea Shoppe for Freshly Made Sketches

Greetings, Stampers! Today's project features a stamp set I am inking up for the first time, Tea Shoppe. It's not a new set, but I just loved the way it works with the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper. So into my shopping cart it went! The color scheme was inspired by the designer paper: So Saffron, Island Indigo and Lucky Limeade.

The layout was provided by Allisa over at Freshly Made Sketches. I reversed it because of the direction the tea cup handle was pointing. My Tea Lace Paper Doily serves as "any shape".

The tea cup was stamped in Island Indigo Ink and cut out by hand. I cut one flower from the 5/8" Flower Trim and adhered it with some liquid Tombo. A couple of pearls adorn the sentiment.

Stampin' Up Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Tea Shoppe
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, So Saffron
Designer Series Paper: Tea for Two
Ink Pads: Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade
Accessories: Tea Lace Paper Doilies, Island Indigo Satin Ribbon (from Sale-A-Bration bundle), Pearls, 5/8" Flower Trim
