Missing You

When I saw the new Have a Cuppa bundle in the Occasions catalog, it took me straight back to time spent with my sweet friend who moved to Texas several years ago. She loves a good “cuppa tea”, and this set made me miss her more than usual. You know what that means–send her a card!

Cuppa

 

Tips & Tricks

Miss You: The missing tea cup was cut out from the back side of a piece of Designer Series Paper the size of a standard card front (5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″) so that the handles of the two cups would point in opposite directions. The sentiment was stamped on the front of the Whisper White card base, and then the Designer Series Paper was mounted with dimensionals to cover the entire card front.

Doilies: I admit, I purchased these Tea Lace Paper Doilies long ago, and I have struggled to use them on projects. But they are SO perfect for the Have A Cuppa bundle that even though I cut most of the 24 doilies in half, I’ve already had to order a second pack! To adhere doilies to a card, I put a small amount of the Multi-Purpose Glue on a spot behind an embellishment (in this case, the Melon Mambo tea cup) and then, without squeezing the bottle, I brush the tip of the glue bottle over other edges that might be prone to “fly away” so that any residual glue on the tip will help those edges stay in place without any sign of the adhesive.

 

Cups & Kettles Framelits: These framelits are some of the cutest ever. Have you SEEN the teapot framelit? ‘Nuff said.
