FSJ November Bloom Box – Cup Of Tea

Hello, fun friends!  We’re so excited about the brand new Bloom Box for November and we’re pretty sure you’re going to be as thrilled as we are, too.  The card kit includes a full-sized stamp set Cup of Tea, along with four pre-designed and kitted cards that are ready for you to create! The Bloom Box includes a step by step instruction booklet so all you need to add are a few inks and adhesives.  That’s it! You will create four amazing cards you’ll be proud to send that didn’t take all day to create.

Isn’t that so really cute?!  We’re pretty sure you have someone in mind to send it to — it’s encouraging and also very versatile.  What you might not have noticed were those perfect little tea cups that are stacked on the side of the sentiment.  How do you think we stacked those tea cups together? We’ll show you, it’s just so fun!

You can stamp your tea cups with the Lemon Drop, Watermelon Fusion and Black Licorice True Color Fusion Ink Pads. Then, you’ll either fussy cut the cups or use the matching dies — both ways will work! But, the next step is the trick.  You’ll pull out your Journey Cutting Mat and your Retractable Craft Knife and cut a slit along the lower lip of two of the tea cups.  Then, you can slide the bottom of the cups into the slits.  Voila!  They stack together perfectly and the saucers need no help stacking.  We love creating a little dimension, so we adhered the cups to the card with our Foam Squares.  Just perfect and we bet you think so, too! But, there are three other cards you can create.  Let’s look at them, too!
