When I decided to make this week’s challenge “coffee or tea” I knew I’d be using this Tim Holtz teacup die. I love how this card turned out – it will be holding a gift card inside for a very special person!
I used distress inks to stamp with, then gently painted with water to do a very controlled watercolor look – loving the results! lots of other stamping including pearl flourish on the cup (dabber paint), my cool new Simon Says Stamp letters, and more! This teacup has been featured on my projects quite a few times – love it!
I took our challenge this week and used “coffee or tea” as my sentiment. I really like how this one turned out too.

This is such a fabulous card! I love that you went with a pastel direction for your coffee/tea theme. It reminds me of those beautiful floral patterns that were on my grandma’s teacups that I always loved. It is soft and elegant and perfect in every way!
