Thinking of you...teacup

I had cut a teacup using some yellow Stardream Mica for one of my Diva Va Voom carts and since I only needed the bottom part I still had the top part left and didn't want to throw it away *okie hates wasting Stardream Mica* and thought I could use it for another card. I didn't do anything fancy, just cut another cup out of some patterned paper and made a simple "thinking of you" card.

The teacup is from Once Upon A Princess. The lacy border on the teacup is a Martha Stewart punch, as is the flower border strip. And yes...I did pull those out of my BORDER STASH! *okie grins from ear to ear nodding head up and down as to say "oh yes...I am a freaking genius*

Then sentiment is from the Stampin Up! Teeny Tiny Wishes set. I used the Word Window punch and the Modern Label punch for the sentiment.


  1. "oh yes...I am a freaking genius*

    yea, you are!!!!

  2. Love it, Okie!!! And, yes, you are a genius!!!! haha


  3. Awesome use of the top of the teacup! And yes, you are a genius!!
    I have started my own border stash!! Have about 9 so far! Thanks for that genius idea!!! Love the card! :)

  4. Shirley ... this is beautiful. I love teacups, I think that if I had the space I'd even collect them. Oh well, I guess one collection is enough ... and my scrappy stuff take up all the space (*wink*) ... BTW ... love your use of board punches - just one more reason why I need to start doing that!


  5. Such a beautiful card! Very pretty papers, thank you for sharing!

  6. wow that card came out really pretty, just loved it!!!!

  7. I'm "rationing" my mica paper. Get it out, look at it and think to myself if I use it that it's gone. Then I put it back in my stash! (does that sound familiar?)


  8. Love it! I started a border stash! Hee Hee I can't wait to use them.

  9. This is such a pretty card. The pattern papers you used go so well together! Great work!
