Tea and Crumpets
I think I should have been born British. I *love* tea, tea pots, tea kettles, tea cups, and even the thought of sitting down to a meal call "tea." So when I saw this adorable little baggie to hold some of my favorite beverage I had to make one. The fact that it's in honor of the 2 year success of one of my favorite stamp designers is just like icing on the tea cake.
I started with a Stampin Up! patterned paper appropriately enough called Tea and Crumpets. I have no idea what a crumpet is, but it sounds cool. I used the WM tea pot stamp and embossed it with copper powder which I think looks like a copper kettle. I used my Copic airbrush to color a white PTI doily cut out to match. A few more stamps from the same WM tea set, SU trim, and a SU antique brass brad finish off my creation. Isn't it cute? The ever talented Claire designed the template and generously GAVE it away for free.
Happy Anniversay WM and congrats to Claire on her continued success!!!
