Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop with Nesting Tea Cup


Once again we are joining the Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop, and we are a sponsor for the hop!

Today I have a fun card to share with you.  I used the Hero Arts Nesting Tea Cup Infinity Dies and created a faux shaker card using the inlaid die cutting technique.   A faux shaker card?!  Yes one without acetate nor sequins/beads/bits.


Instead of using sequins and beads, I placed a stamped panel instead in the area where the sequins would go.  So when the card is shake, the stamp panel shifts you see parts of the image only.  I have a small tutorial on my blog Escape To Stamping.  Take a look on how I put this card together.

The Nesting Tea Cup Dies are really fun.  I made a layered shaker card using the set, you could take a look here.  Besides using it all your coffee/tea/hot chocolate projects, the largest die is perfect for a shape card.   See this post.  Also I think this set would be perfect to make a mini book, a recipe book, perhaps cup shape ornaments?!  I’ve even made a charm for my planner, see this post.  Lots of possibilities!!  🙂  Check it out at the a2z Scrapbooking Etsy store.
