The Paper Players 392 - Design Team Card

Welcome to a new challenge at The Paper Players. This week, it's a theme challenge from Nance and she's chosen....

Tea party. You wouldn't think that would be a problem, would you? But somehow, I'd managed to never buy a tea or coffee themed stamp and I'd given away my only tea party DSP. Then, while browsing around Spotlight in an attempt to find something tea-partyish,  I found a piece of American Craft scrapbooking paper. It had, among many images, this lovely tea cup. My mind went into Stampin' Up overdrive and I began translating it into SU colours. This is where that train of thought ended up...

I turned to Floral Phrases. While the stamp is still current, the DSP and washi tape are now retired but naturally, I still have a stash of them. The image worked well, surrounded by SU colours and devices.

I used my Stampin' Blends to colour some rhinestones Night of Navy to add them in to this card. I'm always kind of amazed when the colour stays on!
