Tea Time Card With Hand Stamped Pattern Paper

Hello crafty friends, I have another tea time card to share with you. I’ve done a little hoping along with the Coffee Lovers this week, have you? I will also be linking the card up over on the Coffee Loving Papercrafters blog for theirs Spring/Summer blog hop.

For this card I used the Polka Dot Orchard It’s Your Day digi stamp set. I created this stamp set and I have to say it is one of my favorites. This stamp pairs well with the Spread Your Wings digi stamp set. I actually created a card combining both sets. If you would like to see it click here: Hello Friend Tea Time Card.

Overall this was a pretty easy card to make. I printed the image on some Canson 90lb watercolor paper and then painted it using Prima Watercolor Confections. I trimmed it down very close to the image and then matted a piece of black cardstock behind it.

Now, this part is my favorite part of the card design. The pattern paper, it looks great right? I created it with background stamps and inks. For the pink pattern paper I used Lawn Fawns Gingham Backdrops stamp set which I stamped in Momento Rhubarb Stalk ink and then using a blending tool I applied Tim Holtz Tattered Rose Distress Oxide over the entire stamped image. I really like how the Tattered Rose Distress Oxide looked over top the … Memento ink. The yellow dotted paper was created by covering some cardstock with Tim Holtz Mustard Seed Distress Oxide and then taking a stamp (the small dots) from Papertrey Ink Splats background stamp and stamping a few times in Mustard Seed Oxide ink. The multiple stamps of oxide made it a darker shade. I love this effect and can’t wait to try it with more stamps.

So, the sentiment… I actually was going to using one from the digi stamp set but messed it up and didn’t feel like printing it again. I grabbed a set that was in arms reach and it had the perfect sentiment to go with the card “Warmest Wishes” I even like the font it is written in. That sentiment is from the Papertrey Ink stamp set {Cup of Cheer}.

I finished it up by adding some mini flat back pearls to it. I am super happy with how this card came out. I love how the colors look together and how amazing my my pattern paper looks.
