Sunday Stamps Challenge #10

Happy Sunday!  I hope everyone is having a great weekend!  I can't believe it's Sunday already!!!  Where does the time go?

Today's card is for the Sunday Stamps challenge!  I was asked to be a guest designer this week for them which is such an honour!  This is a great challenge and if you haven't had the chance to check it out you need to hop on over to their blog and give it a whirl.  They alternate between sketch and colour challenges and this week is a great (but challenging) sketch challenge!  Most of you know how I feel about shapes that don't have 4 corners but my fellow FMS Design Team member Jen Mitchell reminded me that ovals and circles are just square with really round corners!!!

I decided to use the Tea Shoppe stamp set for my card.  I also wanted to crack out the Natural Composition Specialty DSP from SU.  I have wanted to give it a try since it arrived at my door!

In hindsight I think I should have cut out the tea cup handles but alas!  I do love those little teacups!

Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Midnight Muse
DSP: Natural Composition Specialty, Comfort Cafe,
Stamps: Tea Shoppe, Sentiment....I can't remember..I just found it on the table!!!!
Ink: Midnight Muse, Cajun Craze,
Other: Basic Pearls, Midnight Muse Satin Stitched Ribbon,  Oval Punch, Scalloped Oval Punch, Word Window Punch, Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!


  1. What a fabulous card, Jen; and you made me laugh with ovals being squares with round corners! Too True! I love how you layered those sections with the tea cups popped up. And I must say, I need to delve into that Natural Composition paper more! It's great. Glad to have you as our Guest Designer at Sunday Stamps!

  2. Jen, what a cute card!! Love the little tea cups and the composition DSP works terrific with this card. You did an amazing job with the sketch.
