Tea For Two



Another Saturday brings another wonderful Sketch for You To Try. I don't know how Jen does it, but she keeps designing fantastic sketch after fantastic sketch, week after week after week. This month's line-up is one of the best ever! To see this week's sketch, meet May's superstar guest designer, and see Jen's and the GD's samples, head over to i{heart}2stamp. You'll also want to check out the rest of this week's SFYTT samples:

To play along, add yourself to the Mr. Linky form on Jen's post. If you upload to SCS, remember to use keyword SFYTT!

I've used Papertrey's new Tea for Two set and a color combo pulled from one of the inspiration photos (Heather's) in Papertrey's current Spring Fling Challenge. The teapot is stamped in Ocean Tides, trimmed out and mounted on a shape cut with Spellbinders' Mega Curved Rectangle Nestabilities. The sentiment is stamped in SU Certainly Celery. The punched border is done with the Fiskars lace punch. I also used Papertrey's Background Basics: Spots & Dots to add the little white circle pattern to the Spring Moss card stock. The button and ribbon are also by PTI.

Are you a tea drinker? If so, what are some of your favorite teas? I'm always looking for new blends to try. My all-time favorite tea is Jasmine, but I also love a really good Earl Grey and most spiced flavors.

Have a fun weekend!

Look at us, using the same stamp set today, and we share the same first name...I think we are "sistahs" through and through!

I love the way you placed your sketch layers and the decorative punch and piercing looks so good together! Bravo, sister!

Chriss Blagrave said...

Beautiful card Amy! Love how you created your own bg paper with the PTI set and your stitching always adds such beautiful detail.I purchased this tfor2 set also AND made a card for this challenge using the same sketch. Yours is much more elegant though!
I too love tea but here in TX I now almost always drink it chilled. One of my favourites is a blood orange/cranberry that is delicious as an iced tea.

Crystal said...

OMG - this is so incredibly PERFECT!! Love the colors, the layout, everything. You are so talented! Thanks for sharing your art and inspiring everyone.

Amy, this is just stunning and so elegant, one can nearly smell the aroma of the tea in the cup. My favourite tea is Rooibos Tea, which is traditional here in South Africa. Hugs from Desire
