Do you have fabric or ribbon in your papercrafting tool kit? Then you are ready to play this week's Pals Paper Arts Challenge (PPA69). It has a Clean and Simple twist–perfect for a repeating pattern like these tiny teacups. Check out what the PPA Design Team has drummed up along with this week's Stampin' Pretty Pal and Guest Stamper Joanna Munster. There's blog candy, too!
- The Stampin' Up! 1 1/4" Square Punch proved cooperative in popping out the teacups for a fun holiday pattern.
- You had me at "hello?" The Tiny Teacup single stamp also includes a "hello" sentiment. Some crafty stampers will slice a stamp in two to isolate the sentiment from the image. However, I'm a little squeamish about that type of "surgery" so prefer to use my markers and color only the cup.
- I loved the idea of the cups combined with the "Comfort & Joy" sentiment (Word Play stamp set). I stamped "o" a second time on Real Red and snipped it out. It was then layered on a 1/2" Circle in Textured Garden Green. Really adds "wow!"
- Inspiration is abundant with all the holiday catalogs arriving in the mail. The mug below (Crate & Barrel) got me thinking about the teacups.
When I heard that I could join Stampin? Up as a hobbyist and still enjoy all the benefits of a demonstrator PLUS be able to be a part of a very talented group virtually, I couldn?t pass it up.
