Tea-rific Tuesday

I got a bit of a late start posting today - I didn't get anything stamped yesterday, so I wanted to have something from today...... So I have 4 challenges for you.

This Tea-rific card uses the "Morning Cup" stamp set from the new SU Idea Book and Catalogue. The Challenges it covers are:

Mojo Monday - Sketch
Splitcoast - Tuesday Colour Challenge of Pacific Point, Rich Razzleberry, and Old Olive.

I'm using Pacific Point more now that it's a "regular" colour than I ever did when it was an "In Colour".

The next card uses the sketch from The Sweetest Thing and colours from Color Dare - Baja Breeze, Taken with Teal Kiwi Kiss and Always Artichoke.

I've used a technique which Trish Miles showed us at the Extravaganza we had on Saturday. I've just used the clear mounting blocks as "stamps" themselves. You'll never end up with the same arrangement of colour on the block and that's so cool! This turned into a very quick and easy, Clean and Simple card!

Well, I hope that your Tuesday is Terrific and Tea-rific! I'm now going to head into school and pull all my instruments off the cupboard shelves to set them up. Here we go for another round!
Thanks for stopping by!

I love the color combo of old olive and rich razzleberry. Great cards,and thanks for the info about stamping with acrylic blocks. Never would have thought that up on my own. I learn so much from the mojo monday blog.
