Just Thinking About You - Side Step Card

Hello Friends!
Today, I would like to share this card I created using Heartfelt Creations rubber stamps and coordinating Spellbinders dies. The tea cups and flowers are from the new May Release, these beautiful new sets are part of the new Old English Garden Collection.


Size of finished card  6” x 8”.
1. Make Side Step Card base with Brown Metallic Cardstock (instructions for Side Step Cards can be found on Split Coast Stampers).  Cover each section with Designer Paper. 
2. Stamp tea cups from the China Fragments set on Natural White Cardstock with Memento Ink. Die cut tea cups with coordinating dies from the Nested Tea Cups set.  Color with Copic Markers and sponge lightly with distress ink.
3. Stamp flowers from the Tattered Blossoms set on Designer Paper. Die cut flowers with coordinating dies from the Tattered Blossoms Die set. Shape flowers and layer with foam squares.
4. Stamp leaves from the Distress Leaves set on Designer Paper. Die cut with coordinating die from the  Nested Leaves set.
5. Stamp sentiment from the Heartfelt Expressions set on Natural White Cardstock and die cut with Labels Four Nestabilities. Stamp small flower spray from the Tattered Blossom Swirls set and color with Copic markers. Die cut brown label and adhere to back of sentiment to create mat.
6. Arrange finished sentiment, flowers, leaves and tea cups on card base as shown.  Embellish with pearls and a silk bow.

  1. Stunning card, such beautiful rich colours!! I love these new stamps and after seeing them on your blog and then at HC I actually went ahead and ordered some all the way from the States. Can't wait to receive them even though with the postage and everything it has totally blown my budget:D

  2. This is just a fabulous card! Your shading of the teacups is perfect - looks just like aged china. And the side-step card is a great way to showcase a whole "set" of teacups.

  3. I love this teacup card you made. You make it look and sound so easy. Its gorgeous. Thank you for posting the instructions as I have not made a side step card before. Great card to make someone feel special.
