Hello sweet friends and welcome to my bloggity blog today!! I hope you've enjoyed a perfectly wonderful stampy day today :)
As many of you know, I love all things 'tea' related ... tea parties, tea drinking, tea magazines, tea cups & saucer collecting ... swoon! So, when I saw the current challenge over at the Waltzingmouse Makes Blog, I knew I had to make a little something to submit for the Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Party!!
My BFF's birthday was this past Sunday, so I decided to make a sweet little tea set in honor of the occasion! She has been out of town at the beach, so when she gets back this week, I'm treating her to a real tea party to help her continue to celebrate her big day!!!
I downloaded and printed the A Nice Cup of Tea template from the WMS site and assembled it using some fun patterned papers from Melissa Frances, a gorgeous bloom from The Ribbon Reel, some bits and bobs of treasures from my baskets and snipetts of Vintage Winter White and Baby Pink Berry seam binding from my Etsy Shop! I used the Afternoon Tea and Afternoon Tea Sentiments stamp sets to create the tea tag, tied onto the cup with a bit of baker's twine.
Then I downloaded and printed the A Piece of Cake template from the WMS site and assembled the slice as well as decorating it to match the sweet little tea cup!!
The tag was stamped using an image from the Afternoon Tea set and then I adhered it to the top of a trinket pin.
I used more coordinating patterned papers and the same tea stamp sets from WMS to create a matching card as the invitation for this fun little birthday tea party!!
The addition of a few more bits and bobs of seam binding, flowers, glittered chipboard leaves, pearls, rouched satin ribbon and die cut shapes complete this whimsical and fun card!
I had so much fun creating this adorable little gift set ... I sure hope you enjoyed peeking at it today! I'd love to hear your comments on how you think it turned out!
