Tea For Two?

My sample for Imagine That! Digis by Kris for the middle of February was specially made for a very good friend. I think I have mentioned my friend Melanie in a past post, she introduced me to the joy of stamping many, many moons ago. We do not often get together, sometimes not for years, but when we do it is as if we had never been apart. Somehow we always manage to pick up our friendship where we left off. Mel is convinced that she and I are twins separated at birth, the fact that she is 6 months older than me does not seem to have occured to her! This card is for her birthday.

Materials used:  SAM_2629(watermarked)
Imagine That! Digis by Kris – Floral Tea Set
Imagine That! Digis by Kris – Bella’s Beauties Satin Fabrics Papers
X-Press It card
printer card
white square card blank, folded to make an easel card
Copic pens
foam pads
Happy Birthday acrylic stamp
black archival ink pad

For this project I created a hybrid card using the coloured image for the tablecloth and adding the tea pot and cups which I then coloured by hand.

The image mat and the inside panal of the card are from the Satin Papers set – silver satin.

The sentiment is from the Floral Tea Set and the greeting is stamped on using black ink.

Having typed this up I realise just what a hybrid this card really is; digital image for the table top, digi stamps for the tea set and traditional stamping for the greeting!

Thanks for dropping in. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
