PPA 284 – A Nice Cuppa Tea

Hi Stampers.  Today I’m back with another Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge.  This sketch was designed by my fellow design team member and friend Maggie Mata of Maggie Made Cards.


This card was made with the new stamp set bundle of A Nice Cuppa stamp set and the matching Cups & Kettle framelit dies.  The card stock is Tip Top Taupe and Very Vanilla cardstock, plus a scrap of Silver Foil Paper for the spoon. The Limited Time Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper is a FREE option from our 2016 Sale-a-bration catalog!  You can’t order this paper – but you can earn it for FREE by just placing a $50 order.


I used a few of the smaller stamps to stamp in the upper left and lower right corner of the inside layer of the card with Tip Top Taupe ink & the envelope was lined with the same Designer Series Paper as on the front of the card – making it coordinate with the outside of the card.


I used our linen thread as the string for my tea bag.  The thread is tucked into the tea kettle and attached to the tea bag tag that was then attached to the card with a dimensional, giving it a little lift.

I hope you jump on over to Pals Paper Arts and play along with us – I’d love to see what you create!

Happy Stamping,
