Serendipi-tea

Hello CAS-ual Fridays fans!  I wanted to create a cheerful card for those of my crafty peeps out there still covered in snow!  For my project today, I am showcasing the Serendipi-tea stamp set and the Tea Pot Fri-Dies.  Here’s what they look like:

I started out by inking up my Bristol smooth white card stock using distress oxide inks (Squeezed Lemonade and Fossilized Amber), with a sun stencil.  I cut a gingham patterned paper with some black card stock and adhered it onto my colored background.  I run this piece through my die-cutting machine with a stitched rectangle die.

On a piece of Neenah solar white card stock, I die-cut the tea pot and the cup using the Tea Pot Fri-Dies.  I used the negative piece and aligned it on my stamping tool so I can stamp my images from the Serendipi-tea stamp set.  I colored the images in with Copic markers, and adhered these on my card.

I adhered some cloud silhouette die-cuts and stamped the sentiment on my card.  To finish my design, I added the Sparkling Clear Jewels.  Here’s a closer look:

I think this card is so cheerful and can definitely brighten someone’s day!  The sparkling clear jewels looked so pretty against the background.

I hope you like my card and got inspired to create something beautiful today!  Please don’t forget to use my coupon code “MARIASENTME” for 15% off your order.  I hope you have an amazing day, and happy crafting!
