Hello, it’s Debby here. Today I have a video (see below) showing step by step how to heat emboss and watercolor the beautiful Vintage Teacup set. To get started I stamped the cup and saucer in clear embossing ink and gold heat embossed before die cutting with the matching dies. I also stamped the sweet flowers from the Vintage Teacup set on the cup and saucer in Blush ink.

I then took to my watercolors to give a gentle pastel pink gradient to the teacup with pretty flowers reminiscent of the ones my Mother and Grandmother used to have. After watercoloring I went in with colored pencils to define the details and add a few shadows.

I gold embossed the sentiment on a panel of watercolored card with softly torn edges. Then I added a light blue watercolored background with paint and gold splatters. I stamped the steam in Mocha ink on both the teacup and background. Next I added all the elements to the card with foam adhesive and on to a kraft card base. Finally I added a few sequins to accent.

Beautiful card, Debby! I, too, have a teacup and saucer that belonged to my great grandmother who brought it here from England. Your lovely watercolor reminds me of it.

Wonderful work Debbie. I try to find vintage cups for my youngest daughter, who’s lineage includes many Irish folks. I have been able to find some lovely ones with shamrocks on them. She adores her cups. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Debby! love your tea cup colors. my mom had a beautiful set with colonial man or a women on it and my aunt had the one with lots of flowers on them. As I set here listening to you I remember my mom and aunt always arguing about how to serve the tea or coffee, cause one like the saucer and the other one didn’t wow how i miss them both. thank you

Debby what a beautifully water coloured card. Loving the tea cup and die so many possibilities…mmmm. My mum has some vintage tea cups and saucers from her grandmother, we are only allowed to admire them not use them lol. I do love tea cups and pots of tea and have a little pot for one of gorgeous tea every morning and sip it out of a lovely tea cup and saucer in my fave colour, orange, not vintage but a tea cup none the less. Have a tea-rrific day. Cheers Donna Z :)

Oh I love hearing about your tea routine! I have a varied collection of cups and mugs. I don’t go for sets but like an eclectic mix, buying one to remember a trip or receiving them as gifts from family. It always brings a smile to my face when I open my cupboard and flood with the memories and thoughts of loved ones.

This is a lovely set from Altenew and I like them more and more. I am fortunate to have a tea set from my Grandmother. I have used it when my friends come over to make cards and though it seems very fragile, it’s stronger than it looks. I should get this stamp set and have it at the ready for the next time they come and of course, we’ll have tea!

I really like this set because it’s so unusual. I’ve been stamping for a lot of years and I can’t remember the last time I saw a tea set stamp and not one this pretty. I love the coloring on this and even though I don’t like tea at all, you make me want to get out a tea set and have some kind of beverage in it.
Do I have any vintage tea sets? I think I do. They are my grandmothers I think and she died in 1963. They are blue and I think they have dragons on them. They might be from occupied Japan which is why they have dragons on them. I’d have to look and check them out again. We also have some from American Airlines when my sister used to work there in the 80’s. That’s not vintage but it’s old, right? I’m not sure if they are tea cups or coffee cups but there are cups and saucers and they are very modern looking. Wish I could show you photos but if I had any, I’m not sure they would show up here. I’ll have to take a photo and send you one in an e-mail. I think you would like them. You guys are the best!

Debby November 21, 2016 - 03:19

Gail I love hearing about your teacups! The Japanese cups sound really unusual and certainly cups from the 1980’s are getting older now. Gosh, hate to say that though LOL I was a teen and young adult in the 80’s and it seems like only yesterday!

I adore tea cups and collect many of the real thing but this is the most adorable stamp set and die I’ve seen of tea cups though I have to admit I have a few of them, wish I’d seen this one first. And the card with the torn paper behind is just wonderful. I don’t want to copy exactly but I may have to get close because I really, really like it…hehe!!
