Tea-riffic Puns with Tea For Two!

by Emily

Hi there! Emily Midgett here with you today, and I have a trio of projects using the recently-released Tea For Two stamp set! I created a set of two cards and a tag, and used the coordinating color scheme and a variety of doily-themed products to create some pretty, feminine projects today. Let's get started with the details!

All three of my projects use the Tea for Two stamps and dies as the main focal point, with doily accents (using the Doily Frame Stencil, Creative Edges: Lace die, and the Frilly Frame die) and some flowers from the Precious Peony stamp set. I began by stamping a variety of pieces from the Tea For Two and Precious Peony stamp sets, then coloring them with Copic markers in a feminine pale pink, gold, and aqua color scheme.

After die cutting all of the pieces with their coordinating dies, I laid out the pieces on my card fronts and determined which accent pieces I wanted to use.

For my first project, I die cut a partial doily using the Frilly Frame die and some white cardstock, which would be the “tablecloth” for my dainty tea party. I popped it up on a white, A2 card base using foam adhesive, then added my die cut teapot and cup, as well as a peony spray peeking out from behind the teapot.

I embossed a greeting from Tea for Two using embossing ink and gold embossing powder on some strips of white cardstock, then adhered them to the card front using more foam adhesive for lots of dimension. As a final touch, I added a few pink pearls for some shine and added texture.

For my second card, I used the same stamps and dies for my die cuts, but for the card base, I masked off the bottom 1/3 of a white A2 card base and lightly blended some Rose Quartz ink using a blending brush. On top of the blended area, I stamped a light, tone-on-tone pattern using Precious Peony and Puffy Heart ink to create a pretty, almost wallpaper-esque background for my tea party.

For my tea party's “tablecloth,” I die cut a Creative Edges: Lace from some white cardstock, which I popped up on the blended card front using foam adhesive. I adhered the teapot and peony on my “table” using more foam adhesive, adding another gold embossed sentiment from Tea for Two and some more iridescent pink pearls.

For my final project, I used the Terrific Tags die set to create a tag base for my teacup. I thought the shape of these tags looked just like a little teabag! I die cut it from some plain white cardstock, then blended the Doily Frame Stencil using Galactic Stream ink, also blending a bit more Rose Quartz ink to make everything coordinate.

I adhered my Tea for Two die cuts and gold embossed sentiment using foam adhesive and added a raffia loop to create the hanger for my tag.

Well, that's all for today's Product Feature post! The new Tea For Two stamp set is so adorable-whimsical, while still maintaining that touch of Altenew elegance that we all love. Thanks so much for stopping by today, and have a marvelous day!
