Morning Cup Get Well Card

Hey, I'm back! Three posts already this week, maybe I will finally be shaking the mothballs off my poor blog! Here is a fun Get Well card for you today! I made it for this week's Sketch Challenge on Splitcoaststampers.

The base is Crumb Cake. I added another Crumb Cake layer on top of that, this one embossed with the Stripes embossing folder. I used the Delicate Doilies Sizzlet die and cut out the largest doily from Baja Breeze cardstock. I used one of the Finishing Touches Edgelits to cut the edges of a strip of Soft Suede cardstock and a piece of designer paper from the Floral District pack, then layered them and adhered them over the bottom half of the doily. Next a piece of Soft suede taffeta ribbon was tied around the card. I cut out a 2" Very Vanilla circle using the Circles #2 Bigz die and stamped the image in Black Stazon onto the circle. Both the teapot and image and the "perk up" greeting are from the Morning Cup set. I colored the teapot using a blender pen and Baja Breeze, Marina Mist, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Early Espresso inks. Then I sponged all around the edge of the circle with Soft Suede ink. I stamped the "get well soon" greeting in Basic Black ink on Very Vanilla cardstock, and punched it out twice using the Decorative Label punch to get this label shape. For a tutorial on how to create this label shape, please see this post on my blog. This label was then sponged with Soft Suede ink and attached using Dimensionals to a 3/4" Soft Suede Circle.  Super Duper pretty, I hope you think so too!

Everything used to create this card is available from Stampin' Up! If you would like to purchase Stampin' Up products, please visit my business website at


  1. Love the tea pot stamp set. Cute card. I would feel better.

  2. What a warm and inviting card design ... love the color combo and especially love the doily against the stripes embossing folder; the finishing touches edgelits are the perfect compliment to the doily, too.
