It was a timely arrival of the latest release from Craftwork Cards - 'Love a Cuppa' - as I have builders in. Between looking into holes and shaking their heads, they were demanding regular cuppas - quite a distraction from the making that I was meant to be doing.
My centrepiece for the collection was inspired by the mug cards, and I immediately thought of a Welsh dresser with the posh mugs on it - a couple of hours later and I'd constructed this from foam core board and a few pins, cut and shaded the mugs and glued the whole thing together. I painted the shelves with Americana Decor Lace Chalky Finish, before ageing it with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. The mugs are shaded with Pumice Stone Distress Ink.
Next up, a narrow canvas formed the perfect backing for a party banner home decor piece - I had a bit of trouble avoiding drooling on the paper as I fussy cut the cup cakes out! Card Candi and White Liquid Pearls finished the look, with a little Star Dust Stickles to add a bit of bling.
And finally, a selection of cards using most of the elements from the collection:
I hope you've found some inspiration, and that you too do not get drool stains on your cards!
