Day 5 of Getting Cricky Fun - "You're Just Tea-riffic!"

It's hard to believe that today is the last day of Pre-Hop fun.  I've had so much fun working with my chosen set this week and the ideas are still coming!  It's always fun to reach outside of the box and see what you can make with just a few stamps.  Be sure and check out the Blog Candy at the bottom of the post to see how you can win a set of these great stamps.  I changed #5 for today.

For today's project, I decided to make a Valentine card for my Grandma.  I know it will be safe to show now because she doesn't have the internet and doesn't like computers -lol.  My Grandma collects teapots and likes the color red.  Grandma doesn't really want anymore teapots and has so many trinkets and decorations that she really doesn't want anything like that either.  She's always kind of difficult to get get a gift for.  I think I will just give her this little card.


Let's Get Started
Tools:
K. Andrew Design Stamps - "Coffee & Tea for You & Me" and "Coffee & Tea for You & Me" Image set
Cricut and the "Love You a Latte" Cricut cartridge
ATG Adhesive

Supplies:
Paper from my stash (every bit of the paper for this card came from my scraps - even the base)
Tim Holtz "Vintage Photo" Distress ink
Versamark Ink
3 Girl Jam ribbon - "Merlot"

Instructions:
Cut the teapot and it's layers at 2 3/4" using the "Love Ya a Latte" Cricut cartridge.  Cut a piece of red cardstock to 11" X 4 1/4".  Score and fold at 5 1/2".  Cut a piece of tan cardstock to 4 1/8" X 5 3/8" for the outside of the card and one 3 1/2 X 4 3/4" for the inside.  I used Vintage Photo distress ink to ink around the teapot and mats as well as to stamp my sentiments and images.  The ribbon was tied around the mat before it was adhered to the front of the card.


To finish off the inside of the card, I took a Versamark ink pad and repeated the sentiment from the front of the card all over the inside, creating my own background.  I then adhered the new mat over the background paper.  I think my Grandma will like it.

 A portion of the proceeds from each of Kristal's stamp sets is donated to charity.  The stamps are also manufactured in the US and that's really important to Kristal.  I think they are fabulous stamps and I love the versatility they provide.  You can click on each image below to purchase these stamps.
