Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - Day 1


I can't believe it's time again for sneak peeks of the new sets coming to Taylored Expressions!  You won't believe all of the goodies that are being released this month!  Today, I have a couple of projects to share with you using the CreativiTEA set and Miniature Motifs

The first project uses mainly CreativiTEA.  I stamped the flower onto white cardstock and embossed it in white.  Then I sprayed two different shades of Glimmer Mist onto the cardstock to give it a gradient effect.  On the card, the label that the sentiment is and teacup is on is one of the stamps in the set.  It coordinates perfectly with the Labels 9 Nestabilities.  I colored the teacup using ink and a blender pen.  I added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter too. 





The tea bag holder holds two gourmet tea bags.  I stamped the outside of the tea holder to match the card.  The inside, however, was stamped using the Miniature Motifs set.  The holder is tied closed with some satin ribbon. 

For my second project, I used only the Minature Motifs set. . .and a sentiment from CreativiTEA.  I cut pieces of white cardstock to fit the sides and top of the tea tin.  I rounded the corners and then stamped the background in black ink.  I attached the pieces to the tin and tied some black ribbon around it and added a tag.  This little package is perfect for holding lots of gifts. . .tea, coffee, cookies, gift cards.  The best part was it didn't really take much "decorating" to create a beautiful, elegant gift! 


The rest of the Baker's Dozen has lots of things to show you too!  Be sure to stop by each of their blogs to see more of this month's new stamps!
