MC Mar/12 - Cup Dies - Tea Anyone

I got the Spellbinders cup die set last week and immediately saw this teapot/sugar/cup assortment in my mind's eye... Went as far as die cutting the elements and then stalled... too many other things needing my attention. But I finally had a chance to finish it. Like the way it turned out, although the pieces are a little large, so will probably make it with the smaller dies from the set the next time...

Anyway to see more details and descriptions, just click on card image and enjoy.

And it fits for these challenges:
By the Cute & Girlie  Monthly anything to do with food or kitchen
Everybody Art Challenge  #185 Friendship (isn't that a nice time to spend with friends playing dominoes & drinking tea...)
Papertake Weekly  Bingo: gems, die cuts, flowers; ribbon, free, punch shape; buttons, glitter, lace
Tuesday Throwdown  #90 Use something from your stash (I don't think I've ever used this domino folder, and the lace is from last year)
 Simon Says Stamp Challenge  Bingo: Flower, glitter, brads; pearls, lace, ticket/tag; charms, punch/dies, ribbon
Fresh Brewed Designs   #88 Lots of dots (plenty in the Dominos - BIG GRIN)
Alphabet Challenge  D for dry embossing (Domino is a Cuttlebug folder)
Stampin 4 the Weekend  #6 Anything Goes
Flourishes  #161 Sketch (see sketch at left)
Color Throwdown  #184 (see color image at right) - the eggplant color is in the leaves/flowers

Yogi, you've made a lovely 'tea occasion' using the dies in your own way... making many more components from the original die. Love your stamped flowers on the 'china' and recognized right away the "steam" from the cup ;o) Lovely job! ;o) m
