You're My Cup of Tea! / TCP Tuesday #120

This week I wanted to play along with the TCP Tuesday Challenge #120, where Toni from Moved to the Mountains blog, had an inspiration challenge for us. Love those! But yes, I'm always a bit too literal when it comes to those types of challenges so I took a few of the elements from the inspiration picture, like the pillowcase and white sheets, and ran with it.

Here is the inspiration picture, a quilted funky rectangular pattern set with rich red and burgundy colors toned down with light pink and white and nice fresh set of white sheet. I decided to take a few of those funky shapes on the pillowcase and use my Cricut to cut that frame for my image. Can you see it? It's a bird's eye view of the bed in the inspiration picture :) ... LOL!

And in honor of our fabulous talented hostess, Toni, I decided to use these newly release (and I believe named after her) TCP Toni's Tea Set stamps :). I have been really itching to ink this set, with this cute looking tea cup and FUN sentiment, I can see myself inking these for other occasions!

I used a combination of coordinating DCWV papers from different stacks, trying to imitate the bed set :). I had fun paper piecing my image. I used this EK edge punch with my interpretation of white sheets. I had also been itching to use this wool felt from a collection I got from the TCP website. They come in a variety of coordinating colors and I couldn't help myself to them! :) I used the TCP Flower Button die on the felt to make this flowery frame for my cute little tea bag. I then used a bit of red/white twine for some added fun and was done.

This card came together nicely and I like how the layout is a bit different than I normal go for. Thanks for stopping by!
