Cup and Saucer Easel card with Jammie cream biscuit

Hello folks! So glad you decided to visit. I am still here crafting away, just haven't had much of a chance to blog. This'll be a quickie too as we're off on our holibobs after lunch and the twins have a birthday party to go to before that (you see what I mean?)

I thought I would share this card with you as there was some confusion as to whether I had made the biscuit embellishment or not when the card was shown on Joanna Sheen's show on Create and Craft yesterday (...and breathe.... note to self, must use more punctuation)

I sourced the teacup shape from an MCS CDrom and created the oval for the saucer using my gypsy and Cricut Expression. The stamp is from Joanna Sheen's Pressed Flower stamp range. I used Promarkers to add some colour.
Now for the biscuit. I saw this idea in blogland and thought I'd give it a go. I grabbed some cream and tan funky foam. I die cut the circles using my Nestabilities. I cut a smaller circle in one of the tan circles. I then gently heated that circle and stamped into it using a swirl stamp. I then stacked the circles up and glued them together. I used my chocolate Brilliance dew drop ink pad around the edges of the biscuit. For the 'jam' I filled the recess with red liquid pearls and once that was dry I topped it off with a layer of stickles. I adhered to the easel card to make a fun stopper.
I hope you enjoy the rest of the school holidays. I'll see you in September!!
Ciao for now!
