May Papertrey Blog Hop
First off happy Memorial Day. I hope you are all having a good one. It has been cool and rainy for the last few days here so we have not been able to enjoy much outside time. Hopefully all the rain will be good for our vegetable garden though.
It is time for another Papertrey Bloghop. This months challenge is to use the color yellow. I love bright colors so this challenge was a pretty easy one for me. This is what I came up with.
I have had this idea in my head for awhile now and was originally going to make it as an entry for this months guest start stamper contest but I never had time to complete it. Once I saw this months challenge I decided that this would be the perfect opportunity to finish it. I started with a teapot template that I got here and enlarged it. Next I folded a piece of Lemon Tart cardstock in half, traced the teapot template on it then cut it out leaving the fold at the top. When I was done with that I ran the front of the card through my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder. After that I used my Nestabilities Label 1 dies to cut out the Summer Sunrise and Hibiscus pieces then I layered them on top of each other. I stamped the polka dot tea pot from the Tea For Two set on Stampers Select White Cardstock with Summer Sunrise ink then I cut it out and attached it to the Hibiscus label 1 diecut. When I was done with that I folded some Hibiscus bitty dots ribbon in half and placed it under the die cuts then I added some vintage white buttons on top of the ribbon with glue dots and sewed them on with some new Rustic Jute Button Twine. For the inside of the card
I cut 4 slits with my exacto knife then added the tea bag. When the recipient takes the tea bag out they will find this sentiment.
That's it I hope you like it. I am looking forward to seeing what the other ladies have come up with. As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a good night.
