A nice ‘pup’ of tea!


At Craft Your Passion the challenges are Always Anything Goes!We have the fabulous Sami Stamps as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

Isn’t Cup Pup by Sami Stamps just adorable!The little pup himself has been coloured with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers.I don’t think the 3D Crystal Lacquer shows too well on his nose…but it is there,honest 😉 A touch of distressing using inks and a tool have taken place too.The cups have all been paper pieced with a little foam tape underneath to raise them up for dimension.These pretty papers are quite thick so they worked well for this 🙂 I thought a DL card would suit this image well so cut and scored one from kraft card.I added a layer of hessian/burlap before adhering the image to the card.A couple of hand cut banners,one with the computer generated sentiment printed on first, have been glued then some added hand stitching to make it look as if that’s how they’re attached to the card.I die cut a few tiny rolled roses and after dabbing the edges with ink chocolate pearls were placed in the centres.It took quite a bit of sourcing these dies in the U.K. especially at the right price but I’m really pleased with them.I usually find most flower dies a bit big and either there’s no room to add them to my cards or they cover too much of the lovely papers.I suppose this card is a fusion of cute,vintage and shabby chic!
