A Cup of Thanks

A quick post tonight so I can make the deadline for my card entering two challenges.

The first is this sketch over at

and the colours are from 

Here is my card

I have coloured a doily with my Write Marker and topped it with a Nestie label, onto which I have placed the tea cup (on 3D pads). I have added a sentiment Tea Bag with a pull tab on bakers twine saying, "A CUP OF THANKS". This was finished off with ribbons, a bow, and a heart gem

Supplies :
Card = Midnight Muse, Whisper White, Naturals White, and white base FMS
Stamps = Tea Shoppe
Inks = Midnight Muse, Gumball Green, and Raspberry Ripple
Tools = Big Shot, and Nestabilities
Extras = 3D pads, Bakers Twine, Ribbon, Paper Doily, and Gem 

Thanks for dropping by, and hopefully I'll get the time to visit your blogs soon.


  1. Bev, What a wonderful way to incorporate the colors. This is a wonderful card. Thanks for playing along with The Paper Players this week.

  2. Lovely card Bev. That Tea Shoppe set is one I haven't used nearly enough. Thanks for joining us at the Paper Craft Crew challenge. Carolyn x

  3. Never thought of colouring a doily with a marker. Looks good. I have been looking at my tea cup stamp lately and wanting to use it. Lovely card. Can't go wrong with a nice cuppa. Vx

  4. I love that stamp set! Love what you did with it too!

  5. Wow...what a stunning card, Bev! I love the colored doily. The tags are a neat touch. Thanks for playing with The Paper Players!

  6. Bev, I love this card. Your tea cup with the tag is perfect and placing it all on the doily was a genius idea. Love the ribbon and that perfect little bow, too. So glad you joined the Paper Players this week and thank you for rocking my challenge

  7. Very pretty, Deb! I love the little tag detail and the colored doily really pops. Thank you so much for joining us this week at the Paper Players! :)

  8. Beautiful card Bev! Love how you creatively made the tea bag and placed it in the tea cup. Thanks for playing with the Paper Craft Crew and congratulations on being a featured artisan for Sketch #41.
