JAI #354: Just Add Inspiration


As you read this, I'm probably in Perth attending the Stampin' Up! On Stage event. It's a fabulous day of stamping, sneak peeks, and best of all, catching u with some of my stamping friends. I've never been to Perth before, so I jumped at the chance to go.

While I'm away, you can get cracking on the new Just Add Ink Challenge. This week Trish is inspiring us with this gorgeous tea cup image.

I do love my tea, so this challenge was right up my alley! I decided to use the retired stamp set, A Nice Cuppa, to create a free standing pop-up card. I followed this tutorial.

Coincidentally, the colours in the retired Have A Cuppa DSP were very similar to the colours in the tea cup in the inspiration photo, so I decided to drag them out of retirement too.

The pop up card is actually quite easy to make, and the best part of all is that it folds down nice and flat so that it is easy to post.

What inspires you in the photo? I hope to see what you create over at Just Add Ink. In the meantime, I'll be back when I get home from Perth!

Bye for now,



  1. Your pop up card is a brilliant way to showcase that lovely stamp Tina and I love the colours you've chosen and beautiful layers of ribbons too. I'm sure you will have a wonderful time in Perth catching up with friends and the new catalogue. Enjoy :-) xx

  2. Your pop-up card is fabulous, Tina! And such a wonderful take on the inspiration photo.

  3. Wow, I haven't made one of these in yonks. Such a great design, Tina. The prints & image really pop. Hope you had a fab time in Perth.
    Hugs, D

  4. Fellow tea lover right here Tina! Beautiful card - I love the design! The doily is just perfect! Kelly x

  5. Love your coordination of imagery and colours Tina, and the doily really adds to the refined and delicate feel. xxx

  6. That is such a cute fold/pop up design, and the teacups are so perfect. xx
