Clearly Besotted May Teasers – Spilling Tea

April 30, 2020 at 8:00 am 4 comments

Hello again …haven’t all these sets been wonderful! I’m so glad you’ve been enjoying them too.

Today is a lesson in masking. My project makes bad use of post-it notes, and I learned that masking top down rather than bottom up!

The set is called ‘Spilling Tea’ and I’ve just chosen two of the images. I wanted to stack the cups up, with the little kitty balancing precariously at the top. I began by stamping the cups and masking and keeping on stamping. Look at the stack more closely…

Yup. the cups aren’t fitting together inside each other. Once I’d done 3, I actually noticed, but call me lazy, I decided to just press on, incorrect cups and all! The kitten is exactly like our cat.. it will find the highest point in the room to settle on, even if it’s not very stable!

I added lots of doodled dots and some light blue around all the cups to add some depth. The corrugated card base seemed to fit the best and isn’t the sen’tea’ment just perfect! haha.

I know lots of people love tea/coffee stamp sets so I know this will be a real hit (and not just the caffeine type!).

Better go, before these puns get worse.

See you for Release Day tomorrow!

    Oh I love this, Keren! So cute and what a great idea with the stacking cups. Honestly, if you hadn’t of pointed it out, I probably wouldn’t have noticed and it reads as a fabulous card with lots of colour and I love those dots! Such a cute kitty on top too! xx

    I honestly didn’t notice the “free” teacup until you pointed it out. I was too distracted by your amazing coloring, those magical dots and the composition of your card. It is so adorable and I love that it is a taller card.
