Cuppa Tea

I was poking around in my stuff stash because I was sure I had some Valentine's themed washi tape somewhere.  I not only found it, I also found my missing Stampin' Up oval dies and a small stash of 6x6 designer paper--just one sheet each pattern.

I challenged myself to use the wonky patterned ones first, because as scrumptious as Basic Grey paper is they always have to throw a difficult sheet or two into the mix.
I started with this piece because I felt it went with the tape I found.  Plus I had just the die and stamps to go with it.  Since I cut that paper almost in half I had enough to make a second copy of the same card (hey, if it ain't broke, don't fix it).
Then I used the scraps from those two pieces to make this final card and use up the rest of that paper.
I had lots of fun doing it and went on to the next wonky pattern, but you'll have to stay tuned for those.  They didn't whip out as easily as these ones.

The Fine Print: Stamps by Simon Says Stamps "Absolutely Delightful," designer paper by Basic Gray "Paper Cottage," dies by Stampin' Up "Ovals" and A Muse Studio "Word Art" (tea cup) and "Medium Scallop Border," mini heart punch by Stampin' Up, pink twine by May Arts, and washi tape "With Love" by unknown.

Love 'em!! My you are ahead of the game (but I'm doing xmas 2015 so maybe I should shut up). I quite agree, if something works why not do another one while you've got the paper out. Funny how searching for one thing often leads to finding another (sometimes something you've completely forgotten, always a bonus!). Happy New Year!!

I love getting the two-fer-one with half pieces of card stock. And YAY for found stash that you actually USED.

What a sweet card! LOVE the die cuts and I love that you found a way to use "THAT" piece of paper, too! If you do a yearly highlight, I'd love for you to link it up with mine here: http://mynnettekitchenonastampage.blogspot.com/2014/12/blog-highlight-for-2014-link-party.html Just trying to meet more crafty friends and keep in touch with old ones, too! HUGS and happy new year! :) Mynn xx
