Happy Friday Everyone! I am going to have a double post today….it wasn’t intended but I had tremendous trouble with Blogger these past days and in the end…I just gave up. Were you affected too? I think many of us were.
So, fingers crossed that this post does indeed go live :) ETA: finally got the post to go live at 1:20 pm. Bad blogger :(
My first card features one of my all-time favorite stamps. It is sweet Willow with Hot Chocolate from Whiff of Joy. Last week, I was blog hopping and I saw the most amazing shaped card on Chris’s blog ~here~. I loved the tea-pot shape so much that I thought I would try to see if I could find a similar shape over at the Silhouette blog. Well, they did have one and I modified it a little and was able to create this tea-pot easel card.
The image was colored with Copic Markers and I paper-pieced her tea mug with the same patterned paper that I used for the tea-pot. I added stitching around some of the edges and attached a tiny tag made with a WoJ die to the top. Just as if there is a tea-bag in the pot steeping! I stamped the tag with stamps from Papertrey Ink’s Tea for Two Additions set. The other tag was cut from Kraft paper and was made with a Papertrey Ink die shape and the sentiment is from the Tea for Two set.
Here is a shot from a different angle. As you can see, I tried to re-create the look of a saucer for the base.
Here you can see the details a little better.
My second card for today is for the Wags’nWhiskers challenge which this week is to use a circle or circles on your project. I also want to give a shout-out to our new DT members. Please check out their blogs this week and leave them some love.
I created this simple and fun summer card using the cute stamp: Water Babe. The paper is from one of MME Stella Rose paper pads. I cut out a circle with vellum and used a Technique Tuesday set to stamp the sentiment. I did a little sewing across the strip of paper and I also pierced holes around the circle.
