Tea Party Color Trends Challenge | Feel Better Blend

Hey there! I’m finally back today with a card to share for a new Embellish challenge. Somehow, I forgot to do my posting for the last challenge. So, instead of going backwards, I’m treading forward. The Tea Party Color Trends Challenge is so much fun and the colors are so soft and soothing. I made a get well card that can be giving some tea.

Stamp the background pattern on the top portion of the card in aqua mist ink. Next, use a floral image in the same background set and stamp it over the aqua mist ink in melon berry ink. The results of the “double background” stamping technique are amazing. It really makes it seem like it’s custom patterned paper.

 

Stamp the remaining portion of the card front with polka dots using melon berry ink. Mask off the top portion stamped in step 1.

 

Die cut the mat stack shape and stamp the coordinating wood grain mat image using sweet blush ink. The soft pink hue on the rustic-style pattern is so striking.

 

Die cut the tea kettle, stamp the coordinating image in aqua mist ink, and adhere a floral embellishment on top. Don’t forget to add a pearl.

 

After layering the die cuts together, adhere it to the card front with foam adhesive.

 

Die cut a double ended banner from sweet blush cardstock and stamp the sentiment in dark chocolate ink. Of course, it is also popped off the card front with foam adhesive.

 

A very easy card to create with such a special sentiment and purpose.

Thanks so much for visiting today. Please head on over to Embellish’s blog to see more details about the challenge. Also, don’t forget to see what the rest of the design team came up with for this challenge. Enjoy your weekend!

    Nice card! Like the colors and the two hand-stamped background. The teapot looks great on the woodgrain mat. I’ve been using my woodgrain stamp as a background a lot. Love the look, especially as a background for a non-specific tree focal point. :)
