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!

Hello, friends! Happy Friday! Well, only about 44 more sleeps before the jolly man in the red suit makes his appearance! Such a wonderful time of year! I mentioned last week that I am guesting for Crafty Catz this month and I’m happy to share my GD inspiration project for our challenge this week – Anything Goes with a twist of No Patterned Paper! Our sponsor is Time for Tea Designs so come on over and play for a chance to win some images!

I thought ‘outside the box” with a tea-themed CAS card and no patterned paper! I didn’t use a sponsor image but rather a rubber stamp and coordinating die. I stamped the stacked teacups in black ink on thick white cardstock, colored them with Spectrum Noir markers and cut them with the die. I then cut four more from the thick white cardstock and layered them all together.


I stamped the sentiment on a thick white cardstock card base, adhered the teacups and added some Nuvo Crystal Drops. I’m really loving my CAS these days!


I stamped the inside sentiment on thick white cardstock and cut it with a stitched mini scallop die, and adhered it to a panel layered on purple cardstock.


Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: Stampin’ Up Thick Whisper White and Wisteria Wonder cardstock
Stams & Die Set: Taylored Expressions Tea-riffic stamp set and die
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Spectrum Noir- TB3, TB4, BT4, PP2, HB3
