Week 364: TEA

It's a good time for a quiet cup of tea, no?!  Let's have tea together in the gallery.  I think we could all use some about now.

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:
  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)

STAMPlorations is returning as our wonderful sponsor and is offering this challenge's winner $25 off their next online order!

  1. Love the DT’s samples! Hoping to find some time to play along 🍵

  2. How I wish I could stamp and play in this challenge, but I'm travelling. I may try my hand at a watercolour one though.

  3. I automatically thought of ICED TEA....so my card ended up being alittle "outside the box" compared to all the teapots!! I hope that is okay!! Thanks for providing us with fun inspiration through your cue cards!!
