Introducing Cuppa Love

Welcome to another day of the Papertrey Ink Countdown.  Today we have a fun new set and die to share.  I have 2 different cards to share so lets get started...


First, I stamped Background Basics: Super Stripes in Versamark ink, on a Aqua Mist card base.  I die the white cup and then stamped the images on the cup.   I used a sentiment from Keep it Simple: Get Well Soon on the cup as well.  I added a little steam image from Warm Wishes in Fresh Snow ink.  I attached the cup to the card base and then cut off the bottom of the cup.  For a little decoration, I added a black pearl to the center of the cup.  


I made a card using the cup die, but placing the card stock down from the top of the die, just a tad, so I could get a fold at the top.  


I stamped the same images and colors on the front of this cup card.  At the top of the card, I punched a little hole and threaded some twine through so I could staple a tea bag on the inside.  I added the little tag to the other end of the twine.  


I hope you like today's cards.  Stop back by tomorrow for the rest of this month's release!
