Friendly Tea - Stampin' Up! Cup of Tea

   The team at Just Add Ink has a fun 'choose two' challenge.  The choices are coffee, tea and friend.  I have zero coffee stamps so it was an easy choice to go with tea and friend!

  I paired the Cup of Tea stamp set with the floral paper from Heart & Home DSP.  I have used up almost this entire pack of DSP which is very rare for me; usually there are a few full sheets left at the end of a sales period but with this pack I just blew through it the last 6 months!  All that's left are a few scraps and that's a satisfying feeling!

  I made this one into a book binding fold which is really easy, just score your 4 1/4" x 11 card base at 5 1/2" and 6 3/4" and adhere the "spine" part so you have a nice square panel as your card flap.

  Everything is pretty simple for this one except for adding the Shaded Spruce bits into the leafy overlay on the tea cup.  I just cut a second overlay in Shaded Spruce and added the piece back into the Basic White one.  It was a bit fussy but not hard to do and I like the contrast on the end result.

  The sentiment is from Through it Together and pulls in the "friend" element of the challenge.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
