So did you go to the Stamp TV forums last night to see all the new sets at Gina K's? This was one of the cards I posted at the party - it got a little crazy and I was having trouble keeping up with all the posts, but it was so exciting to be a part of the release! Big news for me was that five former WMS sets re-released at Gina K's last night, have you seen them?
If you have not already seen the new releases, you can pop over here to Gina K Store and see all the new goodies in one go.
Also there are blog hops planned, so stay tuned, I have LOADS to show you from this release!
One of the sets revealed was Fill it with Flowers by Melanie Muenchinger, and I used it for this card - I literally filled the large cup image with a flower, lol. I love to try and find unexpected ways to use stamps and I cannot tell yo how good it feels to be creating again!
It was a simple job to make a reverse mask for the mug image but cutting the mug OUT of a sheet of paper and setting the hole over the stamped image. I just stamped the flower within - couple of how-to pics here.
You get the finished, decorated mug.
Next thing was to make a mask of the mug and taggy shapes, I use post it notes. Easy to cut and stick themselves down.
Then I did a little sponging because I never got around to buying air canisters for my copic airgun...
Et voilà - a nice background to highlight the white mug. All that was left was to punch a wee hole for the tea bag string and slit a tiny opening at the top of the mug and feed the string through. I scored the frame in a trellis using my scorpal. Hope it tickles!
