You're My Cup Of Tea!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!!

Here is my card for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge, MTSC99!!! felt SO good to stamp! My little Avery hasn't really let me stamp for the past few days!!

Mercy has created yet another AWESOME sketch, and like all of her sketches, I had a blast with this!!

For my card, I used the newly released From The Heart and From The Heart Funnies from Taylored Expressions! From The Heart has SO many cute images, it was hard to choose which one I wanted to use! I finally decided on this darling tea kettle, and the sentiment, "You're My Cup Of Tea", from From The Heart Funnies, was a no brainer!!

I cut out a piece of Classic Red using the newly released (and SUPER fun) From The Heart Frame Die, also from Taylored Expressions. I then, using Circle Nestabilities, cut out the next layers. I stamped the sentiment ring that states "a special brew just for you" onto Herbal Garden Light in Memento Tuxedo Black and added two red Taylor's Tiny Twinkles, and of course, I attached them with the help of the Embellie Gellie!

The tea kettle was stamped onto Choice Buttercream and cut out with Circle Nestabilities. I colored it with Copic Markers and sponged the edges lightly with Memento Cantaloupe.

The patterned paper is all from Seaside by October Afternoon (YUM!) and I sewed all the layers using my sewing machine. I added a border of Classic Red using my much beloved Scalloped Eyelet Border Die to one edge.

I created a little flag for my sentiment and attached it to my card, anchoring it with a piece of Classic Red cardstock cut with the tea kettle die from the Kitchen Accessories Dies from Taylored Expressions (these are so adorable!).

I layered a Cream Jenni Bowlin Vintage Button on top and of course, I added a bow of Baker's Twine (just LOVE this stuff!). Another two red Twinkles in the top right corner finish this one off!! All of the elements on my card are popped up using Foam Tape.

Please head on over and check out what Mercy and her Muses have created with this rockin' sketch right here:
