My cup of tea

Hello faithful followers and crafters, time for a second inspiration post for our December Stamplorations Theme and Photo prompt challenge

You can choose to follow either the theme or the sketch (and of course both) for the chance to win a prize!

My focal image is from the After Coffee set, stamped with Memento London Fog on patterned paper (Studio Light A6 Paper Pad - No.119). I used alcohol markers for the shading and stamped an extra handle and top for the cup on the reverse of the paper, before putting all the elements together.

I matted the cup on gold cardstock and the 2 larger sizes  of the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies.

Finally I stamped the sentiment Like Christmas - Typografia Christmas on semi translucent shrink plastic to impersonate a tea bag label, using black and red Archival inks. Before shrinking I also punched a hole for the thread.

Of course you will all know the song -choose your favourite interpreter- which inspired my make!

Whenever you shop for STAMPlorations products you can get 20% off with my code: STAMPGIRLCRAFTY

Your turn to create something inspired either (or both) by the December Theme or the photo prompt, and if you do, there are prizes to be won...
For more inspiration, check out what my teamies made on the STAMPlorations blog here.

Thanks for coming by,
I am entering the Craft Stamper TIMI challenge,  SSS Monday challenge (my stars are tiny but there are a lot of them on the paper and shrink plastic) and the Allsorts challenge.
