Layers of Color Tea Party Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to Layers of Color

Tea Party Blog Hop!

This blog hop starts at Layers of Color blog. If you came from Diana Queen's Blog, you are in the right place, if not, please start at the beginning to get the most out of this fun blog hop!
Layers of Color design team is having this blog hop in celebration of the release of Spellbinders newest die templates, Decorative Dress Forms, (designed by Nina Brackett and Laura Campbell) and Nested Tea Cups, (designed by Laura Campbell)! Layers of Color will be offering both these new dies February 1, 2012, or you can purchase them now through Crafters Home participating stores.

Here is a card using the Nested Tea Cups dies:

Aren't they just fun?!  I used "Merci Bouquet" clear art stamp set to decorate these beauties.  I was trying to match the Paper Studio "Mirabelle"
 paper I used for the background!  :)

And an upclose shot of the cups.  Since my precious Grand Calibur is sitting in a box on a ship somewhere across the Atlantic, I stenciled the dies and cut the cups out.  :)  The sentiment came from "Teacup Blessings" clear art stamp set--I just love that set!

Come on in and join us for a spot of tea and enjoy these tasty treats for the eyes!...

Here I have a super fun card I made using this free teacup template created by our very own Melisa Waldorf!
The beautiful butterfly and the ones around it came straight from our latest release, "Fairy Wishes" clear art stamp set illustrated by Nina Brackett.  The "gratitude" sentiment is from a fabulous and appropriately named "Teacup Blessings" clear art stamp set!  :)

This beauty was colored with copic markers (of course!).  :)

Thank you for spending this lovely time together with us today! What a joy to be here with you!

 Please help yourself to these lovely tea-inspired FREE TEMPLATES exclusively from Layers of Color!...

Layers of Color has wonderful tea-inspired art stamps to go with your tea cup projects! You may need sweet sentiments and verses, a spoonful of honey with Teacup Blessings, and of course some flowers and lace doilies to decorate the table! We'd love to see what you do with these unique templates and art stamps! Please share your delicious creations on Layers of Color Facebookpage!

Oh, such a lovely card, Janice! Merci Bouquet is perfectly matched to your paper and to the tea cup theme. I love your ribbon and sentiment touches on both cards as well.
