Pinks and Purples for SUO 92

Today for the Pinks and Purples Challenge at SUO, I have made a Tea Cup Easel Card using a combination of MDS and traditional stamps, punches, inks and dies.

A Tea Cup Easel Card for SUO 92

Here's a 'guide' to how I made my Teapot Easel Card.  It doesn't go into great detail but I hope you can work it out from the series of photos.
The tea cup base of the card was designed in My Digital Studio using the floral tea cup brush stamp and label, printed out and then fussy cut (see below for 'hybrid' pieces).

Sticky Strip was added to the front section of the card so the single tea cup could be attached to form a pocket.


The 'saucer' was cut out from Wisteria Wonder card stock using the largest circle die. I should have made the rim of the saucer first before inserting the 'label' through a slit on the base.

Tea Cup Easel Base

A rim was made from the two largest circle dies and sponged with WW ink. The scalloped circle was cut from Whisper White and paper pierced to form the doily. The sentiment is from Chalk Talk and heat embossed with Whisper White embossing powder.

A medium sized circle was cut to form a base for the punched flowers and then inserted into the front pocket of the tea cup.

Ta Dah!
