Dream Scheme Thursday

Today is designer's choice, so sit with me and have a cup of tea, while we visit the Dream Team blogs!

This card is made with a beautiful piece of fuchsia embossing foil from MercartUSA.  With the colored side up, place the Teacup  (LG683) on the foil, then position the Black-Eyed Susan (LJ902) so that the flower is centered in the open part of the cup.   Carefully turn the stencils over and dry emboss the metal with a paper stump.  Remove the foil and, with a sanding block, gently go over the raised design to remove the color.  Cut out the tea cup and adhere to your card.  I used a piece of paper doily as an embellishment, but there are lovely vintage fabrics that would work as well.  And, a clever crafter could fashion a saucer out of the foil remnants.

If you've finished your tea or coffee, get another cup before moving on to the rest of the blogs, and don't forget to stop at the Dreamweaver blog, DREAM it UP!.  There's more inspiration ahead!

Happy crafting,


  1. Awhhh...I love this card Liz, so clever with the added tea bag. And the doily under it adds another dimension.

  2. Hey Liz... I love this card it is so beautiful and I would love to come and sit and have a cup of tea with you. I love the way you used the metal I need to try this soon.
