  • Stampin up punch tea cup shoppe catalog card ideas SNEAK PEEK ALERT!  I used the Tea Shoppe rubber stamp set for my "thank you" card.  The stamps will be available January 4, 2012 in the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog.
  • The big tea cup was heat embossed in white for a "fancy china" finish!
  • The Holly Berry Bouquet Designer Buttons (Wild Wasabi) are a delightful stand-in for steam rising from the cup.  A touch of Baker's Twine makes them look stitched.
  • I layered the sentiment with three punches and added the sophisticated touch of pearls!
