Coffee or Tea?

We are living in crazy times, aren’t we?  Was it only three months ago that we were encouraging people to stay off their phones and computers and get out and be more social?  Wow!  What a reversal.  I hope you’re all staying in and staying safe.

We had our March Stamp Club just before all this began escalating.  I’m so glad we were able to get together!

This is one of the cards we made at club.  There are stamp choices for both coffee and tea, and you can tuck a tea bag or coffee gift card in the inside pocket.

This stamp set is available FREE with a $100 order, but only until the end of the month!!

Here’s the fixin’s:


Tea Together Tea Bag Gift

Who likes FREE stuff?  I know I do!!  During Sale-a-bration, you can get the Tea Time Framelits dies FREE with a $100 order.

We made this tea pouch using the dies and the coordinating Tea Together stamp set from the Occasions Catalog.  I love the options with this stamp set.  The images are open, so you can leave them plain, stamp flowers on them, or do like I did and take the easy way out.  I stamped on some of our beautiful DSP, so I didn’t have to color anything.

The pouch is made using a 6 x 6 square of So Saffron cardstock and the Envelope Punch Board.  Although it’s hard to see, the pouch is randomly stamped in So Saffron with the doilies from the Dear Doily set.

The teacup and die cut doily are attached to a ribbon that slides, so that the pouch may be opened without damage, so it’s reusable.

A Good Day Treat Bucket

How cute are these little spring treat buckets?  We made these at the library class.

I found the buckets at a local store, and they came 3 in a package, with tags and white ribbons.  I ditched the tags (mine are so much cuter).  Then I colored the ribbon using my Pool Party ink pad and a tongue depressor.  Just lay the ribbon across the ink pad, hold it down with the tongue depressor and pull on the end of the ribbon.  I did both sides a few times to get the color I wanted.  I think these turned out cute!

Stamps:  A Good Day

Cardstock:  Pool Party, Whisper White

Ink:  Basic Gray Archival

Punches:  1 1/8″ Scallop Circle Punch, 1″ Circle Punch

These little buckets would be so cute with a different tag and filled with birdseed for a wedding!

I hope you enjoyed this little treat!
