PAPERTREY Ink Blog Hop~ Time for Tea! March 25, 2011

Filed under: Cards,Crafts,HOME — Sharon @ 10:54 am


I got some new stamps from PaperTrey called Mega Mixed Messages and as soon as I saw the sentiment on one of them I knew what I wanted to make, a Get Well Soon Card!   It worked out well that the challenge for March was to use embroidery floss!!  SWEET!  I was already planning on it! 

 The paper is PaperTrey Bitty Dot Basics.  I used my “A Childs Year” Cricut cartridge and cut out the cup of tea in 3 inches and “George and Basic Shapes” to cut out 1 inch squares for the end of the tea bag string. 

These were really too simple and too cute so I whipped up a few more.  The good thing is that this lends itself well to using some of the prints that I have a hard time mixing different colors with, like this print…..

I actually let the string hang down a little longer than the card so that it can swing around and put the sentiment on both sides.

Another card I made using some smaller scraps that I had of the polka dot paper and cut the mug out of the “Christmas Cheer” cartridge.

The last one I had lined up wrong in the machine and I went of the edge of the paper and didn’t cut the cup out right.  I didn’t want to waste this cutout because I LOVE THIS PAPER so I saved it by moving it over a little and hanging the string of the side to make it look right.  Pretty good save if I do save so myself!

Anyone for tea?  I think this would be cute if you taped a Celestial Seasoning Tea Bag inside.   Hmmmmm.  Anyone I know feeling sick?   cough~ cough~.

    Super cards! Love the cup image. Do not own any cutting machine and it is at times like this that I start to ‘wish’ for one.

    Cute use of the embroidery floss as the tea bag string. I’ll have to keep that in mind for a future card.
