Tea Time!

Ready for a couple more "trio" creations? These cards feature the Teapot set and sentiments from Cup of Tea.

On this first one, the teapot was stamped with Palette toile pink, Versamagic pink grapefruit , and SU cameo coral ink. For the background panel, I embossed coral cardstock with the Fiskars lace plate, then swiped it with some white ink to really bring out the design. I wrapped that with some white lace from my stash, and then stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of patterned paper. Isn't that a great saying?

For this card, I created teapot paper using SU apricot appeal & orange inks; I didn't use the solid base image on this. I let the teabag that I had dictate the colors on this one :) For the pocket, I just took a scrap of heavyweight vellum and wrapped it around the teabag to form a pocket, then stamped and mounted it to the card. Quite simple, but I thought it was a nice way to pass along a little "extra" with the card.

In other news, I'm thrilled to say that the smART Cookie Tea Parties will be starting back up again! We'll be making a few changes, and would love for others to join in the party. Dina will be our first hostess, so be watching her blog for the first announcement. Can't wait!!
