Hello and Happy Friday, everyone! 


Today I have four cards to share with you featuring the Brew-Tea-Ful (31-063) and Overflowing (31-062) stamp sets from the All Smiles collection by Penny Black. These two sets can be used separately, but together they create pretty bouquets in the cup. 

There are four cups in a vintage style in the Brew-Tea-Ful (31-063) set, and I used all four to make my cards. In the Overflowing (31-062) set, there are two floral bouquet images: one is out of peonies and the other one is out of tulips. 

To begin, I stamped the floral images from the Overflowing (31-062) set. I stamped both images in Antique Linen Distress ink for a no line coloring look and stamped the tulip bouquet once more in Versafine Onyx Black. 

Next, I watercolored three bouquets: the peonies in pink with a hint of orange, the tulips in Antique Linen in yellow-orange, and the tulips in black in dark pink-red. After finishing the watercoloring I cut them using the Overflowing Cut Out (51-822) and set them aside. 

I stamped the four cups from the Brew-Tea-Ful (31-063) set in different inks : Vintage Photo distress ink, Potting Soil Archival ink, and Watering Can Archival ink. I watercolored the cups in colors matching each floral bouquet. The cups were die cut using the Brew-Tea-Ful Cut Out (51-823).

The first card shows the yellow tulips in no line coloring and the cup in Potting Soil ink, which I watercolored in light brown. 


To create the background for this card, I embossed a white panel using the Noted (65-005) embossing folder, ink blended the left side of it in yellow, and adhered it to a white cardbase. 

I cut two white frames using the Stitched Loops (51-573) die, stacked them together, and added them to the card. 

I stamped a postage stamp from the Overflowing (31-062) set in Potting Soil archival ink, colored it in yellow, and added it to the top right corder of the card using foam tape. 


The tulip bouquet and the cup were then placed on the card using foam tape. The sentiment from the Brew-Tea-Ful (31-063) set was stamped in Potting soil on a piece of white cardstock, cut into a fishtail banner and added to the card. I attached three yellow rhinestones, and the card was done. 


The second card features the red tulip bouquet and the gray cup. 


For this bouquet, I watercolored a mixed media paper panel in pink and cut it using the All-in- One Oval (51-815) die. I adhered the central oval piece flat on a white cardbase, the small oval frame using thick foam tape, and the rest of the panel using thin foam tape.  I stamped the sentiment from the Brew-Tea-Ful (31-063) directly on the background panel in black. 


Next, the tulip bouquet and the cup were added to the card using foam tape, and three red rhinestones were added to finish off the card. 


The third card for today showcases the peony bouquet from the Overflowing (31-062) set and the cup stamped in Vintage Photo Distress ink. I watercolored the cup in blue and purple. 


To create the background for this card, I first embossed the front of a white cardbase using the Dots & Dashes (65-020) embossing folder. To frame the peony bouquet, I cut white cardstock using the Frame it (51-814) die set, ink blended the bottom of the frame in pink in an ombré look, and added it to the card using foam tape. 

The peony bouquet in the vintage cup was then added using foam tape as well. 


The sentiment was cut with the Love & Miss You (51-494) die two times from some white cardstock, stacked together, and adhered to the frame. Three pink rhinestones were the finishing touch for this card. 


The last cup of the Brew-Tea-Ful (31-063) set was used for the die-cut flowers of the Refresh (51-817) die set. I die cut four flowers from some watercolor paper and colored them in pink, light blue, and light purple. 


I made a slimline card. First, I watercolored a slimline sized mixed media paper panel in the same colors as the flowers, cut it using a die with the distressed edge from the Slimline Medley (51-718) die set, and embossed it using the Dashed Design (65-001) embossing folder. To keep the pattern consistent throughout the slimline sized panel, I embossed the panel twice : once from the top and again from the bottom.


I foam mounted the background panel on a white slimline cardbase and added the flowers and the cup. The sentiment from the Without Limits (30-949) set was a perfect size to stamp inside the cup ! I secured the flowers using small pieces of foam tape to add dimension. For some bling, I added a few rhinestones in pastel colors. 


So that’s it! Thank you so much for staying with me through this long post 🙂 !
