Tea set

I LOVE coffee/tea themed items! When I saw this paper by Chrisitne Adolf at www.creativeimaginations.com I knew I had to have it!

I had NO idea what I would do with the set, but the colors just drew me in. Then it hit me-HELLO serving tray! So I ran to Michaels where I got this white tray on sale for $7! The best part is it has a plastic tray cover, so your artwork underneath is protected! Another plus, I didn’t adhere it, so I can change the “mat” to suit any occasion!

I stamped the plastic tray with a gorgeous flourish image by Fancy Pants called Pollen Dust. I hope you can see how gorgeous it is in the photos. Find it at Jacksonbelle’s ebay store-link on my sidebar!

The next thing I did was use the tea cup patterned paper to inspire my glass coasters from the Bare Elements line at Creative Imaginations as well. You get a set of 4 Greg Glass coasters and a cute white box. Its cheap too! Like $6.99. I cut the PP size to fit, attached the coordinating stickers, then ran them through my Xyron 900 face down.

Making sure there were NO fingerprints I placed them onto my glass tiles. The rubber brayer made them stick, and evened out the adhesive so you cannot see it.


Next project was the box to hold the coasters, and of course the Tea party invitation!

My card-stock is from www.prismpaper.com

I LOVE that Razzleberry dk color.

I used all stickers, and patterned paper. Don’t you just want to go to a tea party now?

Now NO tea party is complete with out your tea cups, and tea right? So I went to Michael’s and got this air tight jar for $1!!! Decorated it to match. The sentiment is a stamp from Inkadoo. Perfect isn’t it?

I used a tea cup template (source unknown) to make the teacups from patterned paper. The lables on my tea bags were also made by me using chipboard embellishments! Love it!

Thanks for looking!
