Blog Break

Stamps: Tea Time
Card Stock: Purple Kitchen & Orange Chiffon 4 bar Notecards (AMuse), Berry Sorbet (PTI), Neenah Natural White
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic markers, Clear Spica glitter pen
Accessories: Oval Nestabilites, Scallop Edge punch (SU), Birds & Blooms Sizzlits set (SU), Berry Sorbet Topnotch Twill, Stampin' Dimensional, Glue Dots, half pearl from Pretties Kit (SU)


I hope you all had a nice week! I ended up taking an unintended blog break. Busy times!

My teapot card was originally going to use LAD Sketch #70, but I ended up getting a bit off track. Anyhow, the notecards are from A Muse, and the teapot is from Tea Time (Lizzie Anne Designs). I thought the colors were kind of fun and different together. The teapot is colored with Copic markers and matches the notecard much better IRL.


This next project is a wallet that I made from an Orange Juice carton. I found the instructions in the Februrary Family Fun magazine.




Card Stock: Pretty In Pink, Hawaii Papaya (SU)
Accessories: Pretty In Pink Striped Grosgrain ribbon, Tombo Multi glue, Scor-Tape, Circle & Scalloped Circle Nestabilites

It was fun to make something a little different. I need to try the projects in the Family Fun magazine more often.

My son turned 8 yesterday, and today we will be celebrating his birthday (as well as my daughter's), with our parents. I imagine it will be a very busy day, but I hope to catch up with you all real soon. Have a lovely weekend, and thanks for stopping by!!

What fun, cheerful colors- perfect for that adorable teapot image. What a clever idea someone had with the little purse. A friend and I were just saying how we used to make our Barbies furniture and accessories out of common household items but today with all the things available to buy, little girls are not encouraged to use this type of creativity!

Such a sweet, sweet card Rose Ann and that purse is just ADORABLE! I think I saw that article. . .your purse is awesome!

Gailanne said...

A very pretty card. I'm inspired now to buy that Tea Time stamp set. But I'm thinking that it might be a wee bit difficult to pour a cup of tea from the teapot you have pictured in your card. Take another look at it. LOL!

Gailanne said...

Oops...the joke's on me. I just noticed the handle ON TOP of the teapot. I was expected a SIDE handle and it just didn't look right! Forgive my empty head, Rose Ann.

Lori said...

The wallet is adorable! I would love to make one for my nephew, sans ribbon of course!
