Just my Cup of Tea

I'm a tea drinker! Love my pot of tea at least twice a day. My mother bought me a beautiful Royal Doulton Memory Lane tea set for my engagement present all those years ago. I'm so happy that I still have the full set and you can imagine how much I love it as I love blue so much.

So my card is inspired by this pretty set. 

I've used the largest Hero Arts tea cup die, and got a little sneaky by using the MFT bowl die, from Bedside Comfort set, to cut out the handle space. You can see it better on my second card below. The roses (Altenew Vintage Teacup set) were stamped in a soft blue and then coloured with Prismacolor pencils in the no line colouring method.  

What large dies do you have? Why not use one for the CASology Challenge : BIG

I enjoyed it so much, I had to make another using some of my favourite paper from Lili of the Valley.


  1. Two beautiful cards, Janet! I love how your patterned papers resemble the real thing on your first card and I can see how the pattern on your 2nd card would be your fave... both are very pretty!
    How lovely that you have taken such great care of the original tea set from your mother! I'll bet tea tastes better when you use them, too :)

  2. Two beautiful cards here Janet! I love the delicate flowers and colouring, how clever to use a cup in the design too. Thank you for sharing with us over at 'The Flower Challenge' and we hope to see you again soon ;) Viv DT xx
