Time for tea, Mambo style!

Standard
Time for tea, Mambo style!

I must admit that Melon Mambo is one of my all time favourite colours. I love any excuse to use it. When I made my Time for Tea card, I spotted a sheet of DSP similar style in my fav colour…what could go wrong?

Well!!

I need some white embossing powder to start with, but I’m too impatient to wait the weeks it will take to get to me (I’m waiting for an order and can’t order until I have the one I’m waiting for!). So I decided to go ahead with White Craft ink and clear embossing powder. Looks dreadful, so I’ll have to remake it later! Next drama was the spritzing. It just didn’t look right, so I asked fellow demos for some help and they were brilliant! Thanks ESAD and Elite! 

Like how it turned out? I used a touch of Wink of Stella on the doily, and then on the ribbon (I think I have a Wink of Stella addiction !)

Thanks AmyK for the inspiration. What have you created today? 

 

Tea time!!

Standard
Tea time!!

After three weeks I finally got my new stamps and papers and boy what fun! I love all things “tea” so when I saw this one I knew I had to have it!

So I trawled Pinterest and found a lovely simple card by AmyK, and gave it my own twist. The little lace doilies work really well with this stamp set. I will say this for the lace doilies, they are very thin, so double check when you seperate them to make sure you only have a single one! I taped my doily on then lifted up the piece I had just assembled and the doily fell off!! But then I realised I still had the piece I’d taped on firmly in place…oops!
