Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - Entry Number 2
A very quick post this morning as have a list a mile long of jobs to finish before 3pm (school pick up time). I couldn't just enter the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop only once. I bought a second-hand stamp set a few months ago which is called 'Afternoon Tea'. I have no idea what company its from unfortunately but it has some wonderful stamps, especially this tea pot:
I love using aqua/turquoise and wanted to try pairing it with another colour for a change. I think the red works really well!
This was nice and simple to put together. I stamped the teapot (and then the sentiment) and fussy cut by hand. I die-cut the wreath once from the aqua paper and then another 3x from white CS and stuck all the layers together. This gave it a bit of height. I glued the wreath to the card front and then popped the tea pot up on some foam tape. I die-cut some tiny hearts in the same patterned paper, glued them and covered them in Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents.
The wreath die is from Papertrey Ink, the tiny heart die from Paper Smooches 'Tiny Hearts' and the patterned paper is from Kaisercraft 'Happy Snaps'.
Right, I'm off to clean my bathroom, clean my bedroom and do some gardening. Oh and walk the dog. I have 3 hours......its going to be a bit of a squeeze. I'm sure the dusty bedroom will still be there for me tomorrow if I don't get it done today......buggar......
