Tea Time

Hello, everybody!  Today is Day 4 of the Summer Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop. Why don't you join us! Just link up a newly created summer-themed coffee, tea, or cocoa project. The linky is open until 11:59 p.m. Pacific on Friday, June 12. Hope to see you there!


Today I'm sharing a collage-style card using some vintage images from Gecko Galz. I'm also joining the Gecko Galz in their "Tea for Two" challenge.  


I began with kraft cardstock and stamped it with Stampin' Up French Script using Simon Says Stamp khaki ink. The kitty was a freebie from Cajoline Scrap, and the butterfly prints are from Gecko Galz' Nature's Bliss collage sheet (I believe it was a newsletter freebie at one point, thank you!). The vintage "Let's Have Tea" word art is from Raspberry Road Designs, and I used a Dymo label maker for the "Tea Time" words. Along the left edge is some dotty washi tape and a scrap of patterned paper. To finish off the card I added a couple flowers from my stash and a number of sequins.

I would also like to support these fun challenges:  Artistic Inspirations AG Layers UE; Beccy's Place June AG UE; Buckwell's Crafty Things with Wings 2/3; Butterfly Challenge Butterflies and Sequins 2/3; Craft Your Passion AG 1/3; Crafting from the Heart 1/3; Cute Card Thursday Summer Colours UE; DL.ART June Linky AG 1/day; Get Creative Must Include Butterflies 2/3; Gecko Galz Tea for Two (RANDOM WINNER)Hiding in My Craftroom Summer Colours 2/3; Inspiration Destination AG UE; Little Scrap Pieces Show it Off Saturday 1E; Loves Rubberstamps AG UE; Not Just Cards AG UE; Papertake Weekly AG 5/5; Sentimental Sunday A Touch of Vintage/Shabby Chic 1/3; Sister Act (Cards Only) AG UE; The Corrosive Pile it On 1/3; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment 5/5

I really like your collage card. What a sweet kitten image. My Cindy helped me craft all weekend. Did you know that one little Siamese foot can soak up your whole puddle of watercolor red? Yep... and then you get pink paw prints on things.

Lori Kobular said...

Gorgeous card! I love the image of that sweet kitty peeking in the tea cup! Love the vintage feel to your card too!

Connie Mercer said...
