Build A Blosson

I have had the Build A Blossom stamp set and Blossom Petals Builder Punch for a long time and sadly had only used them once!  Now how does that happen - easy - I have too many things to choose from.  Shame on me - there is no such thing as too much stuff, is there?

Up, Up & Away

I haven't done a male card for awhile so last week I thought it was time.  The Up, Up & Away set is a great one for male cards and teamed up with the Well Worn DSP it looks quite masculine. All of the layers were sponged with Early Espresso ink to give the card an antiqued look.

Two for Tea - Tea Shoppe

When I first saw Tea Shoppe in the Autumn/Winter Mini I fell in love with it.  I loved the little tea cups and the phrases in the set.  The large tea cup however really challenged me.  I loved the image and had seen some gorgeous things done with it but I just couldn't get it together to make something I was happy with.  For the last week of class last term I had a request to do something with the tea cup.  Now I love a challenge but this I have to admit was a biggy!    There were several failed attempts until finally these two projects came together.  I thought whilst challenging myself, why not double the challenge and create two cards.
