HUG IN A CUP {DigiStamps4Joy New Release}

{Digi Stamps 4 Joy DS4J: NEW RELEASES}

A design team project for our  new releases over at DS4J's shop this Sunday.  I have used this fun image called Teacups which has been designed by the talented Riette for DigiStamps4Joy,  

Hop over to DS4J's blog and have a look at the gorgeous creations my talented design team mates have created with some of the wonderful new release images.

The folded embellishments have been created with circle punches. The image has been paper pieced and the cups have here and there been coloured with Copics . The bling and design paper are from my stash.  The lovely, very talented and super generous BRENDA has shared the tutorial for this card fold here.  I have adapted it a bit and just centred an A4 white cardstock sheet (without cutting anything away from the A4) onto my craft mat with a 10cm panel in the middle and scored the 10cm panel on either side.  The I just folded each side on the scored line and then folded each side in half again.  I made a pencil mark at the centre of the 10cm panel and score diagonally from that point and the top of the left and right folds so they meet centrally at the bottom at a 5cm measurement. 

The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC}.  



Once again I would love to try my hand at the following challenges with this creation:

  39. Sorry to be so late getting here Desire, no internet since Saturday morning, only when it goes do we realise how reliant we are on it.

    Absolutely love your take on the fold of this card, even before I saw it I knew how beautiful it would look with your own unique style of beautiful embellishments.

    Have a lovely week.
