Oh My Darjeeling



This sentiment cracks me up! Both the sentiment and teapot image are from a brand-new Taylored Expressions set called CreativiTEA. I love all things tea, so this set had no trouble at all charming its way right into my heart. Taylor and the Baker's Dozen have been showing the most gorgeous projects this week using this and the other sets that have just released. If you haven't followed along, Taylor has links to all the previews HERE, HERE, and HERE. Those girls are wildly talented, and I'm honored to be guest designing for TE again this month. Visit the TE store to see all the new stamp sets and products!

I'm super in love with this particular paper combo from Basic Grey's Kioshi collection. I stamped the teapot on one of the solid patterns in black, clear embossed, and trimmed it out. The focal point layers are cut with Spellbinders Circle and Peony Nestabilities. I embellished with some white satin ribbon, a black button with twine, light blue adhesive pearls, and a punched decorative border.

Thanks for visiting!

Amy,
When I grow up I want to make cards just like you! :) I don't know if that will ever be possible, but I so admire the craftsmanship (craftswomanship) of your work. I know I could take a number and get at the back of a very long line of crafters gawking at your cards, but I just wanted to tell you again how very much your work is admired. So much detail!...TFS

Stamp Talk with Tosh said...

Okay, I have to be honest. When I saw this card, I was on the phone talking to Michelle. I had told her I hadn't stopped by any blogs in like forever. So naturally, I had to check out what my stamping idol was doing!!! I so hated you the rest of the day.....and again today when I had to look again at this pure gorgeousness!! I'm in constant awe of your creativity, use of embellishments and borders, sketches and colors...oh, I could go on and on!! *sigh*....you're killing me with your skills!!! *grin* Stunning card my friend!! STUNNING!!
