Here's how I was inspired:
Today I'm sharing some cards I made with the adorable Seasonal Sweetheart Stamps and Dies! Isn't she just the cutest? And what's awesome about this set is all of the extras that come with it... and the coordinating die cuts her arms and hands so that she can hold all of them!
I started with one of the bags my order came in... I thought the polka dots were perfect for a Bubble Tea celebration!
I stamped, colored and die cut the sweet girl, flower (a few times) and the coffee cup. I added some "bubbles" to the cup... she's drinking a Green Tea Soy Milk Half Sweet Boba. I will admit... the first time I had Bubble Tea I was not impressed... those gummy little balls, but then my friend Amy told me how I should be drinking it... and you know I buy everything Amy tells me to buy, so I tried it again and guess what??? I am craving it! I'm probably having some right now!
I finished up with a sentiment I built using the Seasonal Sweetheart set, some twine that came wrapped around my order, and those sweet Pine-ing For You Wooden Embellishments.
Did you know Trinity has a Monthly Creativity Challenge?? April is the 2nd month for this new challenge, and I'm submitting this card just under the wire! Here is the beautiful inspiration photo:
I took inspiration from the beautiful florals and pretty spring colors! You have today to enter this April Challenge .. can't wait to see what's going on for May!
And then I had this idea in the middle of the night! And considering that, I'm hoping you can see it....
I recently got the beautiful Succulent Banner Stamp Set and Coordinating Die. I decided it would make a beautiful label on the wrap of a cup of Bubble Tea and I created this card to look like a closeup of the front of a cup!
Isn't that a beautiful stamp? I love how this die cuts all of the wonderful details out! And I used some of another bag (that stripey bit) that my order came in as a straw for my cup. Do you see those pretty embellishments? Those are from the Shiny Baubles Embellishments Pack... love them! They come in an assortment of colors and sizes in one bag and I love how they again give the feel of "bubbles"... they're Bauble Bubbles...lol!
And I used a die from my stash to cut out a bunch of "bubbles" for the bottom of my glass and covered it with popped up acetate before I added my wrap using another upcycled bag and some dies from my stash.
So... do you see it?? It's ok if you don't... it came out just as I pictured it and I love it! With this one I'm playing along over at Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge which is Anything Goes this week! You have one more day to play along!
And for my final card, I did this:
I had some older retired CTMH papers hanging around and one of them had this fun donut theme which I thought would be perfect with some Bubble Tea goodness! And that cute little PML card was in the pack also and made the perfect sentiment for a just because card.
And although she can hold onto any of the cute little stamps in this set, of course today she's holding a cup of Bubble Tea again!
It is definitely a Sweet Life!
