With the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlets you can make some very unique boxes, but it can also be used to make some very unique tea cups as I will show you here.  This card is entered in the CCMC378 Color Challenge. This is my first entry into a card challenge, but I have been a fan of www.CreatewithConnieandMary.com for a long time.




While these colors make me think of fall at this time of year, I decided to think outside the box and use them together for a different type of card.


Stamps: Hardwood, Petite Petals
Paper: Hello Honey, Mossy Meadow, Soft Suede, Into the Woods Designer Series Paper, Whisper White
Ink: Hello Honey, Mossy Meadow, Soft Suede
Misc.: Itty Bitty Accents Punch, Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlets, gold Baker’s Twine

Whisper White – 8 ½” x 5 ½”
Soft Suede – 5 ½” x 1 ½”
Into the Woods – 5 ½” x 3 ½”
Mossy Meadow – 4” x 3”, scrap for itty bitty flower punch
Hello Honey – 4” x 3”, scrap for tag
Gold Baker’s Twine – 1 ½”


  1. Fold Whisper White card stock in half and crease to make card base.
  2. Attach Into the Woods paper to the top of the card base.
  3. Stamp the Hardwood stamp onto the Soft Suede paper with the Soft Suede Ink. Attach to the bottom of the card base.

  1. Using the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlets and Big Shot cut out the one side of the thinlet to make the cup and handle. See the picture of where to place the thinlet on the card stock and how to cut the handle.
  2. Randomly stamp Petite Petal stamps on the Hello Honey and Mossy Meadow cups using the matching inks. Attach the handle to the cups side.
  3. Cut out the label with the Big Shot on Hello Honey paper. Punch out the flower in Mossy Meadow paper and attach to the label.
  4. Attach the Baker’s Twine to the cup and the label.
  5. Attach cups to the front of the card.
  6. I stamped the steam above the cups with a stamp from the Thanks A Latte Paper Pumpkin kit. If you do not have this kit, you can use the Soft Suede marker and draw it free hand.


Here is another Tea Cup card using the Painted Petals Designer Series Paper and Blackberry Bliss Card Stock.
