SNS Always Time For You

SNS FLKR sz

Hello everyone! I made this card last month when I was a Guest Designer for Sweet 'N Sassy Stamps but have not posted it here on my blog yet. I made it using SNS Tea Time. I stamped the tea cup three times on scraps of designer paper from Prima Sparkling Springs and one piece of Crafty Secrets. I cut them out and with a craft blade cut along the front top lip of each cup, then I tucked each cup into the next to create my stacked pile of cups. The base is white (Flourishes) and the dp is Prima Sparkling Springs. I sewed lace onto my paper diagonal strips but it totally doesn't show up in the photo! I stamped half of one of the sentiments in the set in black on white and cut with a Spellbinders Fancy Tag set and every layer is popped up on dimensionals. The ribbon is Martha Stewart and I added four white pearls.

I scheduled this post for this week because I am off enjoying time with my grand kids and daughter. I am sorry I have almost no computer time so my commenting is down.... I promise to make it up to you after this week! :) This is my family vacation that I look forward to all year long! The kids are growing so quickly. This year our grandson who is 13 learned to wakeboard! Our granddaughter is loving tubing and swimming....we had a great day trip to a local gem mine, and a hike in the mountains is planned for tomorrow. We are all just enjoying being together!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you are enjoying a wonderful week!

Hugs,

Hello sweet lady. Sounds like you are making some wonderful memories grandma! I just dropped off DD at the airport today :( . It was wonderful to have her for 10 days.

This card is gorgeou! I love all the lace and frills. Just perfect for teacup images. Pink Persimmon has some tiny mini ones in one of their sets and I just designed an ATC in the same fashiion by stacking them, and I built a little bird nest in the top one! I'm so excited to share it, but have to wait til July.

Oh Grace,

This is stunning! You had to know I would love it! You are so creative in how you stacked these beautiful china cups! I really love each one...they look amazing! And, I love your table setting...the lace and trim is beautiful, I love that on the card behind the flowers. The pearls are a must have! And, that beautiful bow is just that...beautiful! I can see the lace! It is a very, very pretty addition to this amazing card! Made by an amazing person!

Enjoy your time...sounds like they have you running around...or is it vice-versa?

Hey Grace, another pretty card! What a ingenious way to use the pattern paper with the lace to create the borders, I love it and do you mind if I use your idea sometimes in my card? And I love the sentiment too!
