Orchid Garden Friendship - Stampin' Up! Cup of Tea *Sneak Peek*

   Happy Easter to all those who celebrate! I hope you have a lovely day celebrating with friends and family.  For those who don't celebrate Easter I hope you have a restful and restorative weekend filled with things you love.

  I love stamping which is clearly no secret since you're here!  And I've been having a lot of fun creating with some new sets that will be available to all on May 3.  I ordered the Cup of Tea bundle during the demo pre-order and am just starting to play around with all the pieces.  You get 20 stamps and 17 different dies in the bundle so there are a lot of mixing and matching possibilities.  And it's always nice to be able to use some of the stamps that aren't necessarily the main images.  

  I used the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge to use one of the leaf sprigs and one of the flowers from the Cup of Tea set to create this friendship themed card using 2 new In Colors.

  I started with an Orchid Oasis card base and then topped that with a layer of Basic White embossed with the Subtle embossing folder.  I rounded the bottom corners before adhering.

  I cut 2 narrow strips of the new In Color Glimmer paper to layer along the bottom according to the sketch; one in Orchid Oasis and one in Starry Sky.

  The leaves are stamped in Garden Green and die cut and the flowers are stamped in Orchid Oasis and layered following the sketch.

  The itty bitty sentiment is stamped in Starry Sky and popped with trimmed down dimensionals.  I really liked how these 2 new In Colors paired with the classic Garden Green.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
