Care for a Cup?

I found this tea cup on my messy craft/dining room table.  It was stamped, fussy cut, and clear embossed.  When did I do that?  Why do I do that, and not use it?  Before it got buried again, I decided to give it a home.  The current sketch at Glitter N Sparkle helped provide just that.
I used a scalloped square punch for the corner pieces, a scalloped border punch for the one horizontal strip, to which I added some faux stitching, and spellbinder dies for the scalloped oval and sentiment die cut, which is distressed and has a touch of faux stitching also. The stamps I used and the bling are all CTMH. And I debossed the background.

  1. Awesome, Debi! You did a great job with the sketch! I am always in awe of how you use up your leftovers from other projects. Mine seem to get put away for "later" and then never used. Happy Friday to the great grandmother!!!!

  2. This is very pretty and I've done the same thing. Color something and put it aside, forget about it, find it and think "oh my, I better do something with this right now." I found a bunny I colored last April a couple of weeks ago and so my Easter card for this year is half made. hahahaha! Thanks so much for listing your products so I didn't have to guess if you had Punches AND Dies which is our challenge this week. You made my job easy. Thanks for joining us at The Paper Shelter Challenge this week and I hope to see more of your artwork in the future! Hugs, Gail
