Tea for friends..

Nichole did such a fantastic job with her Tea for Two set. I think when we think of tea, we think comforting thoughts....warm and cozy...visiting with friends. So it's perfect to use Tea for Two for get well, thinking of you and birthday cards for friends and family.

This first card I'm showing you is a get well card using Tea for Two, Background Basics: Spots and Dots, Guidelines patterned paper, Plum Pudding ink and ribbons. This card along with my other creations are in the PTI gallery. These two cards below are new creations that I made which were inspired by my strawberry tea pot and fabrics.
I used Pure Poppy for the teapots and punched them out with oval punches, such an easy and quick way to make a focal image. I layered each oval onto a stitched square of Kraft cardstock and added a sentiment. I compiled this fun sentiment from Heartfelt Basics and the word *tea* which I cut out from a Tea for Two sentiment. Tied Vintage Buttons, some white Saddle Stitched ribbon and some vintage looking ribbon adorn the bottom of the card. Patterned papers are from Cosmo Cricket.
This card below uses the *absolutely fabulous* sentiment from Mega Mixed Messages along with one from Tea for Two. I love to mix and match sentiments. Tied Vintage Buttons finish off the corner of the card.

I'm glad to hear that so many of you love this set! I knew it would be a big hit and Nichole did a fantastic job with it! As always, thank you so, soooooo much for your nice comments! I do love them!!

Coming back to say you have inspired me. I am on a purple kick right now...using the same paper as you did on your teapot card. That paper was unloved for a long time until I saw your cards. Thanks!!
