MFT Blog Hop-Cuppa Love

Hi everyone! Hope you are enjoying the My Favorite Things blog hop so far. If you didn't start at the beginning and want to see all the MFTeasers of the new sets...head on over to Kim's blog to make sure you don't miss a post.

Today I am showing you the new set called Tea for Two. This darling set has two tea cup images with mice. I knew lots would be showing this set in its original form, so I thought I would show you how you can combine the teacups with other images. Wouldn't it be cute to have a flopsey sitting in one? So, when you purchase this set---you will be able to find lots of different ways to use the cups.

Here is my Cuppa Love---I combined the new Tea for Two with Boho Blossoms and Behind the Scenes sets. The result is a funky and fun Valentine:
Materials used: Stamps-Tea for Two, Boho Blossoms, Behind the Scenes (My Favorite Things); Memento black ink; red embossing powder (Ranger); Versamark; classic red and black su markers; ribbon (My Favorite Things); square punch (Creative Memories); white cardstock-Gina K Pure Luxury; designer paper-Cosmo Cricket (Dutch Girl); paper piercing tool and mat pack; Cuttlebug and tag die; gemstones (Hero Arts); silver cord (SU!); dimensionals (SU!).

I embossed the heart from Boho Blossoms in red and cut it out and added the bling. I stamped the tea cup on dp...(I carefully inked only the tea cup part and used a q-tip to remove any ink that got on places I didn't want to be stamped). I used a fine tipped marker to add in the line or two that I couldn't use because I wasn't using the mouse image.

I stamped the background thanks and punched them out with a square punch. Finally, I assembled the pieces and added the faux stitching.

Hope you can see many different ways these teacups can be used. I am sure you will see the mice in them somewhere along the hop too!

To continue the blog hop, please visit the talented Candice's blog!
