Cup Of Tea

Stampin Up Cup Of Tea

I know people think I am crazy because I don’t drink coffee.  Actually, I have never had a cup of it in my life.  I never even tasted it.  I just can’t stand the smell.  My parents did not drink coffee at all either and neither do my sisters.  I guess it depends on how you were raised.  I drink a cup of tea every day, though, and I do get a little cranky if I don’t have one (unlike a certain person who shall go unnamed who gets violent with no coffee).  Ask me how I know! 🙂

The Tea Boutique Suite of products is in the Stampin’ Up! 2022-2023 Annual Catalog.  The suite includes the Cup of Tea stamp set, Teacup Dies, Tea Boutique Designer Series Paper and Tea Boutique Cards & Envelopes.  You can order the entire suite using one item number (158670) or you can order things separately.  If you order the stamp set and the dies using the bundle item number (158667) you can save 10%. The Suite order number includes the 10% discount too.

To make this card, I first cut a 3.75″ x 5″ piece of the Tea Boutique Designer Series Paper and layered it onto a 4″ x 5.25″ piece of Fresh Freesia card stock and a Basic White card base.  Next, I cut out the tag using the Tailor Made Tags and the same DSP.  I stamped the tea cup using Orchid Oasis ink on a piece of Fresh Freesia card stock and cut it out using the coordinating die.  I stamped the leaves in Garden Green ink and the flowers in Fresh Freesia and cut them out too.  I adhered the flowers using Mini Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Sending Smiles stamp set and cut it out using a die from the Sending Dies.  Lastly, I tied a quadruple bow using white Baker’s Twine and adhered it using a Glue Dot.

Let me know if your parents drank coffee when you were growing up and whether or not you do too.  I would be interested in knowing if my hypothesis is correct or not.

  1. This is beautiful, Susan! I love the soft, springy colors! And, btw, I don’t know ANYONE who gets violent without coffee, but I have seen someone get a little, um, feisty, if she can’t get her water bottle open!!! Gorgeous card. And tea is (almost) just as good as coffee. IFLY!
