Four Squares of Tiny Teacups


Today I decided to try a couple challenges. I made this card for the Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge and the Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge. I liked it that the sketch and the colors were all chosen, so I just just added a few things and put it together! Sure, just that easy!?! Well, kinda :)


I used the Tiny Teacup stamp, which is a single stamp for $5.95 - what a bargain! The stamp has the teacup and hello below it, but it's easy to stamp each part separately (it has a little space between them).


I added a bitty button with a Pacific Point punch behind it, and of course some linen thread.


For the bow, I knew the tails would be too much, so I made the 'tuck around the back' tails.


Thanks for stopping by,


Julie

How did you cut those teacups out so perfect? If I didn't know better I'd swear it was done with a punch!.
