Welcome to Kylie Bertucci’s January Highlights. We’re bringing in this New Year 2019 with a large dose of encouragement. For this month’s card, I wanted to say, “Get Well.”
There’s nothing like a warm cup of tea to make someone feel better. This teapot and cup are from the Tea Together stamp set in the 2019 Occasions Catalog. They are cut with a FREE die set, Tea Time, from the Sale-A-Bration brochure; FREE because of my qualifying $100.00 order. How fun is that!
I wanted this teapot and cup to look antique, and I thought The Crackle Paint background stamp would look like crazing. I inked the Crackle Paint stamp in Sahara Sand ink, and stamped it on Thick Very Vanilla cardstock. Then, I stamped the teapot and cup on the stamped Crackle Paint, using the same Sahara Sand ink. The crazing is a bit overdone, but this tea set is VERY old.
For decoration, I stamped a flower from the Tea Together stamp set; three on the teapot, and one on the cup. My Aqua Painter colored the flowers nicely with three ink colors: Powder Pink, Pear Pizzazz and Crumb Cake.
The Sahara Sand cardstock table (card base) has a lace tablecloth made from Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Paper covering Petal Promenade DSP.
The sentiment, “Get Well,” is from the Well Said stamp set (Occasions catalog), and cut with a die from the Merry Christmas die set (Holiday 2018). The inside says, “Sending healing thoughts your way,” and both sentiments are stamped in Crumb Cake ink.
To complete my “get well” card, I colored one more flower, and used its die for cutting. I also decorated the Very Vanilla envelope with a piece of Petal Promenade DSP.
