Retro Rubber Cup of Love.....

Image may contain: text

Hello everyone: The theme for the next RETRO RUBBER challenge is the much loved ANYTHING GOES, this gives you the freedom to choose whatever style, colors, subject, celebration, season of the get the message so, come and join us in the gallery, will you?
Here is my card that I hope inspires you to play along.

This is one of my most favorite stamp sets from Stampin' Up! called "Morning Cup". It came out in the 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog, I absolutely love this sweet images.
I made a (kind of) CAS card, just stamping the tea pot, mug and tea bag onto a panel of water color paper and coloring them with Sakura Koi water colors.  The teeny, tiny hearts pouring out of the tea pot are made with an equally old SU punch called "Pinking Hearts", it's a corner punch but I mostly use it for the perfect little hearts it punches.
I made some score lines on the top and side of the panel, hope you can see them.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The sentiment is from another retired SU set called "Whimsical Words" that came out on the 2010 Sale-a-bration catalog.  Love the font on all of this sentiments.

Hope you decide to come and join us in the RETRO RUBBER gallery.
Please read our rules, they are few but important, most of all, have fun.
Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Too cute! I am a hoarder of all stamps that are tea and coffee related, so of course I have this one but I haven't used it in ages! Thank you for your sweet pink nudge to get it out! Love it, Maria! Glad to see you back in the craft room.

What a wonderful way to highlight your tea related images! The circles add a graphic touch to the card. CAS and so pretty!

Just adorable! I love the sweet layout and your use of circles to frame the images is lovely. I've never seen those tiny hearts before... divine!
