you’re tea-riffic!

Mornin’, peeps! Happy Monday to you! I’ve popped in this morning to share a card I created for The Outlawz Challenges! This will probably be the only card I’ll create for these challenges this month as I have a lot going on. But we’ll see… you just never know what may happen! I created this beauty for the Freebie/Progressive Challenge where The Paper Shelter is our sponsor this month! The lovely Veronica gifted us this amazing It’s Tea Time digital set to play with so I went with a birthday theme! Can’t have too many birthday cards in the arsenal, you know! ;)

I’m not really a steampunk fan but this image is rather ‘steampunky’ and I love it! I printed the full image once on the background paper and then printed just the girl and leaves/flourishes two more times which I fussy cut and layered one on top of the other. I ran a brown marker around the edges for a more finished look and then adhered them on top of the full image for some dimension. This technique adds a lot of interest. I layered the background on turquoise cardstock and then adhered it to a kraft card base. I stamped the sentiment on ivory cardstock in strips and then punched it with a circle punch. I punched a slightly larger circle from the kraft cardstock and layered them together.

I embellished the inside panel with leftover strips of the turquoise and kraft cardstock used on the front, and stamped a birthday sentiment from the same tea stamp set in turquoise ink. I colored the two little tea cups with alcohol markers.

And one more look… totally loving how this turned out! I love The Paper Shelter images!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
