Hi friends. Today I am entering this tea time tag into the Out of a Hat Challenge. The theme this week is Time, and since I am a die-hard tea drinker I thought it would be fun to combine the two.
I started off by stamping the sentiment at the top of the tag so it would show when it was tucked into the sleeve. I also stamped the floral swirl at the bottom to balance it out. Next, I created my own background by stamping little Baby Pink flowers all over, and adding a bit of clear sparkle gel pen to the middles. The stacked tea cups are from a Gina K stamp set which I’ve had for quite some time. I paper pieced them, and popped them up with foam dimensionals. Finally, I added the ribbon to the top and tucked a rose into it.
Both the tag and sleeve, as well as the clock pieces, were cut using the CTMH Artiste Cricut Cartridge. I stamped a couple of different images onto the clock face with Baby Pink and Bamboo ink to get a shabby chic look. I then added tiny clear gems around the outside at each hour. The body of the clock was stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black with one of the Universal Backgrounds stamps. A dot of clear glitter gel pen was added to the center of each little flower to match the flowers on the tag, and I added a silver ribbon around the middle for extra sparkle.
That’s all for now. All this talk of tea has me craving one so I’m off to boil the kettle! Happy crafting!
