Stamp Off Tea Together with Celebrate You

Happy March, and welcome to another Stamp Off
Challenge with Susan, Buffy and I.
This week, the theme of our challenge is 
"Time to Start Drinking"!

I think that the Occasions Tea Together set, with coordinating
SAB Tea Time framelits dies, is a lovely combination.  
Those tea cups are just screaming to be colored with 
Stampin' Blends and hung on a shelf.
So that was the inspiration for this card!  

To dress this card up, I added a thinlit sentiment from Celebrate
You Thinlits on page 216.  The Blackberry Bliss layer
was run through the Big Shot Lace Dynamic Textured
Impressions Embossing Folder (Occasions page 11), 
because this worked back wonderfully to the tea cups.
As usual, I had to add a layer of Wood Textures DSP,
found on page 191, because it looks a bit like a shelf.

Now that you've seen what I'm drinking, please click
on over to check out Buffy and Susan's cards!!

Butterfly Gala with Sunshine Sayings

Again, with the butterflies!  But then I just love the
Butterfly Gala set, with coordinating Butterfly Duet Punch
(page 35) and coordinating SAB Botanical Butterfly DSP (p 9).
The butterflies were colored with the Stampin' Blends!

In this example, I used Sunshine Sayings, on page 112 of
the annual catalog, for the sentiment.

Recessed Let It Ride

I'm so happy that I purchased the Let It Ride set,
on page 45 of the Occasions catalog.  It is fun to color,
and enables me to make cards for my family horse lovers.
For this card, I wanted to recess the horse, so that it
would look a bit like it is in a stall.  I colored it with
Stampin' Blends, which work so well with this set!

I had a little mishap, and am stamping upstairs, because
I cannot use steps right now.  That means NO BIG SHOT!
I have a few punches, but texture is dependent upon
DSP and crumpling paper.  Both techniques 
were used in this sample!
