The All New Cups and Kettle Framelits and Dies are just so very wonderful. Who does not love coffee, hot chocolate, or tea….. I in love with everything about Cups and Kettle. And if it could not get any better it is bundled with the Have a Cuppa stamp set (this saves you 15%)…. Of course, the dies work well with other stamp sets. Today, I am combining the Cups and Kettle Framelits with the Happy Happenings Stamp Set. Several of the stamps from this set fit perfectly into the the “coffee” cup framelit.
I really thought about using “today’s the day” or “thank you” but, in the end “let the cerebration of your fatuousness begin” won out!!!!!
The background was created using derwent Inktense Pencils. The pencils were a Christmas gift and quickly becoming one of my favorite ways to create a watercolored look. I colored some ink onto watercolor paper and then washed it out with a aqua painter. The same technique was used to create the cup and the steam. The sentiment was stamped using the archival basic black ink and the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig. The watercolor panel is backed with real red card stock.
Here is the supply list: my Inktense Pencils came from a store called Dick Blick.
