Hello Everyone, Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts Blog Hop, which features amazing products from the upcoming Occasions mini catalog, starting January 4. Since the mini isn't available yet, this is an easy way to get a sneak peek! So let's hop along!
If you have been following the blog hop in order, you have just come from Cindy's post featuring Mixed Bunch. Cindy has some beautiful projects! Didn't she do a great job with this set? Today I will show you some projects using the set Tea Shoppe, a perfect feminine set reminescent of Grandma. First up, a tea bag all-occasions card.
You could go with many different fancy folds to create a tea bag holder card; I used a front pocket. I actually stitched the pocket, to avoid any sticky adhesives inside the pocket. This teacup set goes perfectly with the new Paper Doily die, which was featured by Tanya. And the pink roses on the Attic Boutique paper reminds me of vintage wallpaper. This card was inspired by a swap from a local stamper who does beautiful work, Walda Murphy (waving hi, Walda!).

For a 3-dimensional item, I created a tea bag dispenser and coordinating notecard.
The Sale-a-bration paper called Everyday Enchantment, available January 24, is perfect for a warm and vintage look.
On top, there is an accordion flower made from a Lace Ribbon border punch strip, a ribbon rosette created with a running stitch along the edge of the Victoria lace, and the custom tea cup embellishments created from shrink plastic. Come back on Monday for more information on this project.
2/11/13: Do you love this Tea Bag Dispenser Box and would like to make
it with the same ribbons and papers? I now have a kit available for
purchase. The kit contains papers, ribbons, and embellishments, plus full
instructions. Please see this post for more information.

And I wanted to try something different, using the "backside" of the stamp.
Here, rather than stamping directly on cardstock, I stamped on the backside of Whisper White cardstock, after stamping off once, in light ink. I then cut out the tea cup shape and stamped on the frontside of the cardstock.
