afternoon tea

These freebie stamps have been laid about on my table for some time now, not really "my cup of tea" I thought, however yesterday I was twiddling my thumbs not knowing what to do and started to play about with them, the little tea cup die came with the set and that's what I first started playing about with. The background paper is also from some free papers from another magazine. I think it might be the first time I have used the lovely Tim Holtz doily die, must remember to use it more often. i'm entering this into these challenges

Addicted to stamps - Anything goes

I also made this little 3x3 card from bits on my desk, image already stamped and coloured and a piece of wax resist for the background and a scrap of paper lace.  The pile of bits and pieces never seems to go down, probably because every time I make something there always seems to be something left over that gets added to the pile!


  1. Two very beautiful projects. The background paper on the first one adds so much to the card

    Thank you for joining us at Try it on Tuesday so good to have you there

    Love Chrissie xx

  2. Two gorgeous cards Joan, the doily die cut looks so pretty and the stamps are fantastic. Thank you for coming over and joining us at TioT's with our Tea theme.
