Coloring Vintage Teacups – Altenew Bloghop

Hello and welcome to my stop on the Altenew Bloghop! I was so honored to be invited and sent some stamps…I hope you’ll enjoy this pretty card! (Details on the hop, giveaway, and next link are below in this post!)

Vintage Teacups

When Altenew invited me to be part of this hop – and I saw the Vintage Teacups set – I wanted to color a set of pretty teacups right away, so I chose that one! (Big thanks for sharing stamps with me so I could join in!) I got out my masking tape from Judikins to create the stack of teacups and nested them into each other. See the video for how that worked with positive and negative masks. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube!

  1. Really beautiful composition and coloring!

  2. What a beautiful job u did on these cups!! So pretty and the shading and the colors you used are spectacular!! You are so talented!!

  3. I love all the shading you did on this card!

  4. This card made me cringe! Hold on…Hold on! It made me sad to see such elegantly crafted tea cups stacked like that! They could chip! You see, I love tea cups (and tea!) I have a collection from my Bridal Shower. We had a tea party and everyone brought a different tea cup/saucer or tea pot as the gift! I love having all different cups, because I can choose which cup fits my mood that day! It was a wonderful day! Dresses and hats and all of the pastries and refreshments had some type of chocolate in them. I still receive tea cups as occasional birthday or Christmas gifts! I really want to grow my collection of tea cup stamps! I love how beautifully you colored them! I don’t know how you controlled the marker to make the very thin circle on the saucers! These are so lovely!

    Thank you for this wonderful give-away and thank you to Altenew for such an exciting Release! I love all of the stamps! “Adore You” is my ultimate favorite of favorites. “Hello Sunshine” and the Tea Cups are my 2nd choice–tied!
