I have already made my card:
And here is the sketch they gave us.
I found this sketch easy to use when I paired it with the DCWV cardstock and this stamp set from Hero Arts:
Now no one will probably recognize this set as I have had it for years in fact I think it is one of the first stamps I bought. The date on the stamp says 1995. I bought this stamp set to make my daughters birthday invites. I remember we had a tea party for her birthday that year and I had so much fun putting it on for her. I even made a tea pot cake.
I have been wanting to use older stamps that I haven't used in ages and make them new again and I thought this was a great set to start with.
I chose the stamp with the tea pot and sentiment and stamped it on white cardstock with black ink then I die cut and embossed it with a spellbinder die and my cuttlebug. I used a light brown cardstock with another die then ran it through the Swiss Dot embossing folder.
Next I lightly sanded the raised dots which left them white since the DCWV paper has a white core. I used a blue marker to color each white dot.
I used pattern paper and a small strip of blue paper to make the border.
I used a scarp of blue cardstock to stamp the "tea for two" sentiment and inked the edges with Frayed Burlap distress ink. The sentiment is from Paper Trey Ink.
I added pearls to random flowers on the cards background.
Let me know if you have any old stamps that you have used lately and given them new life. I would love to see what you have created with them.
