Edit: I got my patterned paper at my local scrapbook store. I believe Two Peas sells it online.
Hi friends, it's a new week and I'm the Guest Designer at The Shabby Team Room. You can visit their blog to see some fabulous challenges and more projects from their Design Team.This week's theme is "Sketch This"....the photo inspiration for the sketch is shown below:
For my project, I decided to play along with the sketch and the tea party theme of the inspiration photo. Using Papertrey's Tea for Two stamp set, I created a little gift ensemble suitable for a special friend.
Using a Pretty Paper Pouch from my Etsy shop, I tucked my stamped card inside along with some tissue from an old sewing pattern. I love to use the tissue as *stuffer*. On the outside of the Pretty Paper Pouch, I attached two tea bags.
You can see the patterned paper covered, mini clothespin I used. I also added a Vintage Button with Rustic Cream Twine to the clothespin.
Here's my finished card that matches The Shabby Team Room "Sketch This" inspiration photo. All of the patterned papers are from The Girls' Paperie. The base card is made from Rustic White Cardstock.
The adorable, chubby tea pot was stamped onto patterned paper and then carefully cut out with fine tip scissors. The "tea time" sentiment was cut from a single sentiment in the Tea For Two stamp set. I adhered the words onto some of my vintage dyed Tiny Tags from my Etsy shop. The big scallop on the left is a Scalloped Border Die from PTI. I used Copic markers in the lightest of pinks to give a little shading to my tea pot image. Just enough to give it a little fullness and rounded look. I finished off the card with some Wrinkle Ribbon from my Etsy shop.
The inside of the card uses another sentiment from Tea for Two and some scraps of patterned paper.
