Playing with ink and paper- Tea's on!

I love crafting. I love it all... how it takes 3 hours to make that one card... figuring out how to do some certain effect... finding the perfect sheet of pretty designer paper to go with the card... yup- true love.
So here is the effect of having one day to play... :)

My mother-in-law collected tea pots and used blue Willow Ware exclusively for all daily use. 
I loved it. So when I was working on this card, I kept thinking blue and white... 
Stampin' Up! stamp sets: A Nice Cuppa (and matching Cups and Kettle Framelits dies) and some homemade designer paper using the scattered flowers from Perpetual Birthday Calendar.  

Stampin' Up! stamp sets: A Nice Cuppa (and matching Cups and Kettle Framelits dies) and Flowering Fields (2016 Sale-A-Bration)
The designer paper is Twitterpated (retired) designer paper.

This next card is another sunburst card... and 
here's how I glued all the "throw away" pieces down without having to piece it all together... 
I cut the paper with the die cut, flipped it over and put liquid glue on the "throw away" pieces. 

Then I put the cardstock over the upside down and gluey pieces and pressed for a while with my fingers and a bone folder to get the pieces to stick to the cardstock. 

In the end I get two cards- the positive and the negative design.

Here is the final card I made with that piece... 
Stampin' Up! stamp sets: Kinda Eclectic (the sun rays and "a little kindness goes a long way", Ray of Sunshine (the sun's face), and Sunburst Sayings ("you brighten my day" and the squiggles and line of dots) with matching Sunburst Framelit Die.

And the non-SU! card for the day was using those Tim Holtz Crazy Birds finally...
