Clearly Besotted Stamps Guest Designer – Day 2

Hello again!

I am here with a couple more cards for my guest post for the May release of Clearly Besotted Stamps.

Once again I have used the My Cup of Tea set to make these two cards:

CBS 04

I decided to customize the outline tea pot and make it resemble Aladdin’s lamp. I stamped it on gold shimmery card stock and embossed a flourish (Inkadinkado inchies) on one corner. It is a wishing lamp, but in real life you can’t simply wish for things, hence the sentiment, encouraging someone to work for their dreams. When I chose the patterned paper, I simply picked one that looked good with the color scheme, but afterwords I realized that the pattern/colors resembles oriental carpets and thought it worked well with the whole Aladdin theme.

Here is another version of a very similar concept:

CBS 05

Here I stamped the pot on gold foil card stock, and used a hand draw smoke cut out of vellum. The black corner is supposed to be a rock (looks a bit too flat) and the sentiment is handwritten.

Thanks for stopping by!
