Today I am sharing with you an oldie but a goodie… a tea treat holder and matching note card. A good friend of mine likes to have a go at 3D papercraft projects, and is often a source of inspiration for me. This project was exactly that. She found a tutorial online and showed me the result.
The timing couldn’t be any better. It is perfect for tea lovers, or indeed suitable for any hot drink – coffee or hot chocolate, or a small chocolate treat too!
Mothers Day is fast approaching, and boy it has snuck up on me this year. April was such a full month of events, family life and work that I haven’t been as prepared as I like to be for the occasion. I needed something quick to put together that would make a good gift for giving this Mother’s Day.
The Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper is lots of fun with its bold colours and floral patterns. Every sheet in the pack is suitable for this project, so I chose my favourite few and made a bunch of these treat and note card duos.
The sentiments are stamped in Basic Grey ink and are from the Strong & Beautiful stamp set. This stamp set has wonderful, uplifting sentiments in a gorgeous font. I will be getting full value from this stamp set I’m sure!
I love how easy it is to co-ordinate colours thanks to Stampin’ Up!. Did you know that each DSP pack comes with a list of the colours featured in the paper? I went with Lovely Lipstick cardstock and used the Decorative Ribbon Border punch to create an element to sit behind the piece of DSP. The sentiment piece on the tea pouch is made using the Thoughtful Banners stamp set, the Duet Banner punch, and the Tailored Tag punch. I stamped the ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ in Basic Grey ink and then sponged the edges of the Whisper White cardstock and the vellum piece with Lovely Lipstick ink.
