In Color Week with Parakeet Party

 Here is In Color #5 - Parakeet Party! It seems almost a cross between neon green and the current Granny Apple Green. What do you think?

I had so much fun making this card for you. I love the look of tippy tea cups stacked together. I wanted them to "pop off" the card front so I used the strip of Basic Black mounted on Sweet Sorbet.

Can I tell you a secret? I used two adhesives on the tea cups. Mini Dimensionals at the top edge and Stampin' Seal for the base. That way the cups were angled and fit together better when stacked.

Here's my second tip - I wanted one of the teacups to be going in the other direction. I figured out I just needed to flip the Designer Paper over and die cut the cup on the reverse side and it would come out the way I wanted it when I flipped it over. I felt like a smarty pants for that! LOL

I thought my card needed just a little something more, so the addition of the two stamped and die cut mini flowers with pearl centers were perfect. The retired Stitched So Sweetly die set had the perfect die I needed which I think balances out the card so nicely.

I have loved using the Tea Boutique matching cards and envelopes! They are so much fun to work with and so easy to make a lot of cards at once.

Products used in my Card above:

Tea Boutique Cards and Envelopes, Cup of Tea stamp set, Teacup Dies, Tea Boutique 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper = Tea Boutique Suite

Basic Black and Sweet Sorbet cardstock and Sweet Sorbet ink pad, and two Pearl Jewels

 Retired Stitched So Sweetly Dies, Basic White cardstock, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink,
 Parakeet Party 1/8" Metallic Woven Ribbon

Adhesives used were Stampin' Seal, Mini Dimensionals and Glue Dots.

Tools used were the regular Cut and Emboss Machine, Paper Trimmer, Take Your Pick Tool, and Paper Snips.

Post your comments about the Tea Boutique Suite and the cards I shared this week. I'd love to read them. It would help me know what my readers are enjoying.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a lovely day!
