More Tea Time Fun With CottageCutz

Hello and happy Saturday!  Lorie here today with a couple of cards I've been working on since I last posted here.  I've been having plenty of fun with this Tea Time Release, and the fun continues.  For the first card, I went with somewhat of a cameo theme, by combining the CottageCutz Oval Doily and Frame die with the CottageCutz Teapot Mini die.  I simply cut everything with the desired color card stock, and added embellishments, along with the liquid pearls, which was a quick and easy way to give it a  special little "extra".
The next card was a fun one to make that also showcases the CottageCutz Oval Doily and Frame die.  Some pretty patterned paper, and some strategically placed pearls give this SWEET birthday card the perfect amount of bling.  The tea cakes were cut using the CottageCutz Tea Cakes 4x4 die, and they were colored with Copic markers.  The sentiments come from Peachy Keen Stamps.
Here's a closer look at the detail of these sweet tea cakes.  I used Stampin' Up! Crystal Effects to make the ganache frosting look extra shiny.   Some coarse glitter on the fruit and flowers would have been a nice touch, too, BUT it would be best to do that BEFORE  the frosting, which needs plenty of drying time.

Thanks so much for stopping by The Scrapping Cottage Blog today.  It's always wonderful to have you, and I wish you a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend.  Happy Crafting!

Love, Love the crystal effects for the glassy glaze. Stickle (dry)under the crystal effects can give you one look, also using a fine shaker with crystal glitter . . lightly shaken on the damp crystal effects can add an interesting finish (not good for this project), depending on the weight of the crystals, whey will float down into the crystal effects. They look imbedded. . You have to work really fast.
