Stacked teacups


Hi all - this week's Merry Monday challenge from Lesley has a great inspiration photo - just love the stacked teacups!! I couldn't wait to play along and here's my card using some Silhouette cuts and die cuts:

Holiday Wishes cups
Supplies: Hero Arts Punch card; Basic Grey papers - Nordic Holiday & Sugared; Bazzill cardstock
Silhouette files: #9702 "4 Teacup Silhouettes" (cups and saucer); #79076 "Stacked Teacups Card" (tea bag)
Dies: Impression Obsession "Pine Branch Die"; Penny Black "Red & Green"
Stamps: Hero Arts CL803 Family & Friends (citron flower on top cup) CL887 Color Layering Christmas Tree (sentiment); Hero Arts w/Studio Calico 331232 Spread Joy (circle border on top cup)
Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Fired Brick, Lucky Clover, Twisted Citron; Black Soot
Tim Holtz washi; May Arts string twine; Copics - for shadow and definition

I had fun mixing patterns on two cups and stamping on the third one. The Tim Holtz washi was the perfect anchor to my stacked cups. Hope you're having a crafty day and thanks for stopping! Be sure to check out Merry Monday for loads of inspiration.
