Shabby Tea for Two


Take a look at my second submission for the Shabby Tea Room's Design Team Call, my first being the project posted just below.

The Shabby Tea Room has a fabulous weekly challenge, I've so enjoyed playing along when possible! If you haven't visited the Shabby Tea Room blog, do so now!

Here's the inspiration photo that we were given to build our design from:


What a pretty tea set! I've incorporated the colors pink and black, as well as polka dots and the tea theme into my project.

Let me tell you about my design. I knew that I wanted to use PaperTrey Ink's "Tea for Two" stamp set and die. I also used some of their "Text Style Bitty Dot Basics" polka dotted pale pink paper.

I combined the polka dotted paper with brand new KaiserCraft "After Five Collection" 6 inch paper pad from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. What a classy collection...I'm especially loving the flocked and foiled patterns!




I machine stitched around the perimeter of the card, adding a bit of distressing to the background layer. 

A big luscious bow, created using a Bow Easy and May Art's Silk Ribbon, Prima Teaberry Lilliput Roses, and KaiserCraft rhinestones (the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store) add special touches to this shabby design.

Spellbinder's "Scalloped Edge Frame", wrapped with narrow May Art's silk ribbon (all from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store), ties everything together.

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful weekend!
