Hugs - Love & Hearts Collection - Tea-Thee - Easel Cup Of Tea

Yogi Here today and  I've been meaning to make a tea cup type of easel card for a while now... So here it is.

I'm using an A Way With Words dies  "Sending Hugs Kisses" 3pce set from Elizabeth Craft Designs, also available on Quietfire Design HERE

And I'm using one of the newest sentiment  stamps from Quietfire Design ("Tea - Thee" 7pce set)

Also using a clear stamp set and a stencil from Suzanne "Love & Hearts Collection" 10 pce set and "Butterfly Kaleidoscope" stencil also available on Elizabeth Craft Designs HERE  and HERE

Open the "Easel Cup Diagram", resize so it's 7"w x 5"h approx, print and cut from some copy paper. This is your template to create the card configuration. Transfer to cardstock by outlining using a pencil, cut and score as per the template below. Transfer the cup design onto another piece of white cardstock and cut out. Trim if they don't match perfectly...

I outlined my design with a black marker. I created some masks from copy paper where needed - for the liquid in the cup, and the left edge of the cup/saucer.

Stamped the heart/hearts using Versafine "Habanero" and clear embossing. Inked the outline heart stamp with the Habanero and clear embossed.

Sponged some Distress "Tea Dye" for the liquid.

Used the side edge of colored pencils to color the cup and saucer.

Sponged Distress "Crushed Olive" around the cup background.

Lay the stencil on the background and sponged with some "Mustard Seed" and "Fossilized Amber".

Stamped the "Tea" with the Habanero, clear embossed on white cardstock. Added a shadow line with an HB pencil. Dye cut with Tim's "Stacked Baroque" die set and then cut off the bottom edge, sponged with the tea dye.  Punched a hole and added the ribbon. Made a slit in the cup liquid and adhered the ribbon to the back.
Die cut the "Hugs from a blue textured cardstock and adhered.

Stamped the "Mine, you're..." on white with the Habanero, trimmed down adding a picot edge, sponged around the edges and adhered to front.

Created the lemon by cutting a half circle. Used an orange/yellow colored pencil for the rind edge. Left a white rim and colored the rest of the lemon with another yellow pencil. Added white veins with a white gel pen. Cut of part of the lemon slice to make it appear it was sitting on the cup rim. Adhered to cup.( I only like lemon in my tea... dislike milk UGH)

On the floor: Direct to paper with the Crushed Olive pad.

Stamped the quote on white cardstock using the Habanero and clear embossing. Die cut with Tim's Stacked Baroque set, cut off the top area, sponged around edges and adhered to floor with 3D foam tape to act as my stopper.
