heARTful Teacups

 Valentine's Day is definitely on my mind lately and I like to send out a few Valentines whether they're cards, tags , or ATCs. This year I chose to use a tea cup shape to make simply sweet Valentines. Here are the first three I made today. The template is one I found when I googled tea cup templates. They are approx. 4 1/8" at the widest part and 3 1/4 " in length.

 The beautiful vintage faces are from Paper Whimsy , the words and German dresden borders are from ARTchix Studio, Ranger Vintage Photo Distress Ink  was sponged on edges, glitter felt heart stickers were purchased at a $ store.

  Here's another Valentine card too:

  Products: pale blue, white card stock, patterned paper (Paper Studio); vintage image; banner (ARtchix Studio); white organza ribbon (Hobby Lobby); felt heart (Martha Stewart); Grand Calibur die cut machine and Floral Doily Motifs die (Spellbinders).

 Please join me at T Stands for Tuesday with Elizabeth and Bleubeard and Inspiration Avenue (whose theme this week is "Hearts and Flowers".

  2. These are fabulous tea cups. I was really impressed with the tea tags. Your attention to detail showed through in all the cups. Of course, the card was beautiful, too. I'd be hard pressed to pick a favorite.
