A cup of tea...

I am a HUGE fan of tea stamp sets.  I can't even say that I am big hot tea drinker... I'm not.  I enjoy the occasional cup of hot tea in the winter, as it brings back fond memories of my grandmother, but as a general rule I am all about the sweet tea.  YUM! 

This new stamp set from TCP, Toni's Tea Set, is a GORGEOUS tea stamp set.  I love the cup style, the steam stamp... and the adorable sentiments.  PS: the steam from the tea set works well as "blow hole water" from the whale in A Whale of a Time stamp set. :)

The image was stamped in Memento black and mostly paper pieced.  I did color the tea (E31, 33) and the tea bag (E50).  Again, I used the Wood Veneer paper to mimic a kitchen table.  You can even sew on it.  CRAZY!  The flower was a gift from my friend, Michele.  THANKS, girlie. :)  In the center of the flower, I added a cork button (Button CutUps die from TCP) cut with MFT cork (currently out of stock) and then added a brad in each hole to stick with my pink brad theme.  :)

I just love this dainty trim and have NO idea where I got it.  LOL   OOPS!  I have just about all my ribbon in baggies, nicely rolled.  That was three weeks of my life I'll never get back.  LMBO

Have an awesome day! 

Question of the day:  How do you drink your tea? 


  1. Love your wonderful design. Great mix of elements.

  2. Love your card -- beautiful! I love teacup stamp sets too! I drink my tea with milk & sugar. Both of my parents came from Ireland so we grew up drinking tea & that's the only way we ever drank it!

  3. I LOOOOOOOOOVE that flower you used! I MUST have it! LOL! GORGEOUS card!! I prefer ice tea to hot tea too!

  4. Jodi, love the card!

    I like my hot tea straight up, no sugar or cream. I must be sweet enough!

    I am on the DT for Squigglefly and they came out with a great tea set two weeks ago. Go check it out, the sentiment is perfect for our mutual friend Mary!! LOL!

  5. I {heart} this card! Wonderful colors! I also prefer iced tea to hot tea, but I like mine unsweetened. Most people think I'm weird!
