A Little More Tea Time

Hello and happy Saturday!  I hope you're enjoying a fabulous extended weekend doing things that you love.  Here's a couple of cards I've been working on, and  I've had  plenty of fun with this Tea Time Release.  So... the fun continues!   For the first card, I went with somewhat of a cameo theme, by combining the Oval Doily and Frame die with the Teapot Mini die.  I simply cut everything with the desired color card stock, and added embellishments, along with the liquid pearls, which was a quick and easy way to give it a  special little "extra".
The next card was a fun one to make that also showcases the Oval Doily and Frame die.  Some pretty patterned paper, and some strategically placed pearls give this SWEET birthday card the perfect amount of bling.  The tea cakes were cut using the Tea Cakes 4x4 die, and they were colored with Copic markers.  The sentiments come from PK-106 With A Cherry On Top from Peachy Keen Stamps.
Here's a closer look at the detail of these sweet tea cakes.  I used Stampin' Up! Crystal Effects to make the ganache frosting look extra shiny.   Some coarse glitter on the fruit and flowers would have been a nice touch, too, BUT it would be best to do that BEFORE  the frosting, which needs plenty of drying time.
Thanks so much for stopping by The ThINKin' Spot today.  It's always wonderful to have you, and I wish you a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend.  Happy Stamping!
