I'm sure you have heard the story before that my granddaughter loves to have tea parties. She moved to Alabama a couple of months ago and I really miss her. I got this stamp to make her a card and send to her later - later is now here. I made this card a while back, but did not have a chance to post it until now. It is an Elisabeth Bell for SCACD called Dolly. Isn't it cute? The childhood days of pretending do still exist. My granddaughter lines up her dolls and her stuffed animals for a tea party.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Whimsy Stamps - Sew, sew, sew

My Time to Craft - Polka Dot Party

Cute Card Thursday - Strawberry Mint Julep - Use the colors pink and green

Kaboodle Doodles - Use a charm

The image is heat embossed and colored with Copics. It is really hard to capture all the details in a picture. The bonnets, tea cups, teapot, and napkin in the basket are glossed. There is only a little stickles on her shirt and apron, the dolls dress, flowers and tea cups and teapot. The two taller plants have flower soft. If you haven't tried the flower soft you don't know what you are missing. Susana has in the new colors - Autumn and Polar White. The rose is not as dark as the picture show and it also has a little stickles. I colored the charm with Copics. The border edge of the dp is punched with a MS punch and flatback half pearls added. The dp is CTMH.
For the inside, I cut the teacup with my Cricut and colored the rim with Copics.

Check our Susana's Custom Art and Card Design for more of the Elisabeth Bell images exclusive line for SCACD.

Thank you for looking and please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
