Did you know that certain stamp sets in the Idea Book and Catalog are included in Sale-a-bration?! They are! And I am featuring one of the them - the individual stamp, Tiny Teacup.
One of the things I love about this stamp is the positioning of the sentiment. When I mounted the stamp, I cut apart the "hello" and mounted it on the side of the wooden block. That way I can stamp just the teacup, just the sentiment, or both! This card is a sample of what I mean. I tilted the cup and then stamped hello to look like it was being poured out of the cup.

Soup's on! A packet of crackers and some chicken noodle soup all packaged up in a paper "mug" is a special way to cheer up a friend or loved one with a cold or the flu.
I left out the sentiment completely on this one, and instead used the Tiny Teacup, paired with the Lovely Letters Alphabet set, to create the word "soup"! And, I layered it on some cheery Poppy Parade checked designer paper to give it a bright, cheery look.

And last, but not least, another little package. This time it is time for tea and cookies! I am loving the Baskets and Blooms die. It makes the cutest little baskets! Once I made the basket with Springtime Vintage designer paper, I added a special tag made from the same die.
This tag was so much fun to make. First I stamped, and cut out the Tiny Teacup. Then I gave it some dimension by adding Crystal Effects to its surface! To "ground" my teacup, I punched a small oval from the same designer paper and placed it under the teacup as a placemat.
Finally, I added a Button and a tiny tea bag made with vellum, chocolate chip cardstock, linen thread and a stamped sentiment.
