Moxie Fab Bright...

How sweet is the little teacup that Cath chose for this week's Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger?  I love the colourful flowers and I wanted to create an equally cheery teacup.  I pulled out some patterned paper of unknown origin and stamped and embossed this big ol' Market Street Stamps cup.  I struggled a bit with placement and sentiment but finally settled on this arrangement.  I dithered for ages about the colour of the card base.  Initially I was going to go white as I figured it would make the bright colours really pop but I finally decided that this Island Indigo really made the cup colours feel that much richer.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Lucky Limeade, Island Indigo, Pool Party) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Teacup from Enjoy Today) Market Street Stamps, (Steam from Coffee Cozy) Lil Inker Designs, (Sentiment from Hot Concoctions) Paper Smooches
Inks:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Clear) Ranger
Gems:  Recollections

Rich, indeed! This is a real classic, Jen! Great patterns and that background color is so rich. Wowzer!

I haven't used that cup in ages! Love how you added the swirls & did the piecing - I want a coffee cup like that :)

Good call on the Island Indigo! This teacup really is perfect with the patterned paper.
