Anything is Possible

I have lots of friends who adore their tea, and I often send birthday cards to my tea-obsessed friends. While I can make a traditional birthday card, I often like to send tea-themed cards, so I am always on the search for new tea-related stamps.
When Verve Stamps came out with both tea and coffee-inspired sets, One Cup and Coffee, I was quick to order them, along with the coordinating dies. I am hesitant to confess this to tea friends, but I also like my coffee!
The Verve website has a handful of card samples to provide inspiration, such as the cards I made here. These cards are very easy to make and straightforward. The only quasi "technical" thing I did was cutting apart the stacked cups to mix different patterns. You can see below that I used black ink (Memento Tuxedo Black) to stamp the image onto some patterned designer papers.  I used the coordinating Verve die to cut out the patterned stacked cups and also some white card stock cups to use as a base. Then I trimmed out individual cups and glued those pieces onto the white die cutout base.
