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. 


The sketch is from:
