Hi Stampers, today I am participating in my second Happy Stampers Blog Hop. This is when a group of us from Happy Stampers share our projects with you all at the same time. Visit my site and then hop over to the other sites by using the navigation arrows. This will guide you to each set of projects. Have fun and please leave comments as we have some fun blog candy waiting to be won. Happy Stamping.Stampin Stamping The theme for this blog hop is “Birthday Cards” Today I made my card using a black and white theme with just a touch a pink. I think the classic color combo suits most birthday occasions and was so fun to create. I also added a darling mini coffee cup to coordinate with my card. Add some sweets to the coffee cup and your gift is complete.
Stampin Up Tea Party Birthday Card and Coffee Cup
Here is my card recipe:
Card Base: Basic Black 4-1/4 by 11, scored at 5-1/2
Mat:Whisper White 4 by 5-1/4
Mat: Rose Red 3-7/8 by 5-1/8 Stamped
Mat: Whisper White, Memento black ink with Something Lacy Stamp 3-3/4 by 5
Art Piece: Tea Party Stamp cut with oval Framelits
Oval Mats: Rose Red and Pink Pirouette cut with the oval framelits.
Embellishments: Pink Pirouette flowers, sponged with rose red. Old Olive leaves punched with the bird builder punch. A large pearl was added to the center of the flowers.
Here is the Art Piece:
The Oval was Whisper White card stock stamped with Vera Mark and then embossed with Black Embossing powder. The center of the stamp has a tea theme so I used my Stampin marker and proceeded to color my image with the ink to rubber technique to color that part of the stamp. I then used a happy birthday sentiment in the blank space. After all the stamping, I hand cut the center image out and placed it on the embossed image with dimentionals. I cut out two ovals from the oval framelits in pink pirouette and rose red. Embellishments: Pink Pirouette flowers, sponged with rose red. Old Olive leaves punched with the bird builder punch. A large pearl was added to the center of the flowers. I added the rose red crochet ribbon from the artisan kit in the new spring catalog.
The Mini Coffee Cup:
I ordered the coffee cups from a Restaurant Supply house called www.webstaurantstore.com; it was the 4oz coffee cup and matching lid. I used a template to cover the cup from Deb Valder at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please visit her site for the template for the coffee cup.
Here is the recipe:
Cup Cover: Back to Black DSP
Banner: 1.5 x 3-1/4 stamped with Something Lacy with Memento black ink
Sentiment: Stampin Up, Remembering Your Birthday stamped in Memento black ink and punched with the Decorative label punch.
I added some pink pirouette flowers that I sponged in rose red with a large pearl for the center. Old Olive leaves punched with the bird builder punch added for foliage to the decorations. Again adding some rose red crochet ribbon finished off the cup.
