Inspired By... China Blue

When I came across these beautiful plates I knew exactly which papers I wanted to play with.  Aren't these such pretty plates?  I would love to have these as my everyday dishes.  Click on photo for source.


How does the photo inspire you?  colors? sketch?  flowers?  patterns?  circles?.... I would love to see and remember... any paper crafting project works for me ;)

I, of course had to use the Floral Boutique by Stampin' Up!  I created a few items and honestly I think I could have kept going!


First up, I used a Silhouette cut to create the little tea cup box.  I will fill it with some leaf tea just as a little pick me up for a friend :)



I then created a simple card to go with it.  I went with the sketch from the layout of the plates and kept it simple just like the photo.  I then stamped a Stamplorations sentiment.  You know me and my stitching ;) 


Then of course I had to go a little more patterned, well because that's me too.... LOL .  Once again some fussy cutting and the stamps are from Stamplorations.  I mounted the cup on foam squares.

Sweet as can be

I have another sweet themed card for you today.  I used the Fruit Stand and Tasty Treat papers from Stampin' UP!
After fussy cutting the peaches from the pattern paper, I stitched them then adhered then to the card.  The top one is mounted on foam squares.  I then die cut the sentiment and stapled it on.  The stamped sentiment has been trimmed then adhered. 
Playing along with a couple of challenges:

Hello Lovely...

Happy Tuesday!  I still love using this paper pack, the white roses just make my heart happy :)  It is the Hello Lovely collection by CTMH.


Once again I fussy cut the flowers and to create the tags, I just trimmed the end of a rectangle.

I can't seem to get enough of the Crate Paper Bloom collection :)

I fussy cut the cup and the tags from the pattern paper.  the rest of the bits were scraps from previous cards.  I mounted the cup and tags on foam squares.  Of course some messy stitching and staples for the finishing touch. 


I played along with a few challenges.  First one is Crazy 4 Challenges.... tea
