Tea Time

Hello, I think things are finally slowing down a bit and I had a chance to get in the studio and get inky.   Today I am sharing a fun little Tea Bag Book that I made.  


Isn't it adorable?  I was lucky enough to recently win a fab supply of goodies from My Mind's Eye's new Indie Chic Saffron line.  I love, love the colors in this line.  At first, I wondered if the colors would be a bit to fallish, but nope, they are perfect for right now.  
I started with a piece of brown cardstock that measures 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" and scored it at 4" and 4 1/2" to create the little book.  Next, I stamped this sweeeeeet teapot from the Our Craft Lounge Tea Time set in brown ink onto a print piece of the MME/Saffron paper and colored it in with my Tombow Dual Brush pens and blended out the color a bit with the Tombow Dual Brush Blender pen.  Trimmed it out and popped it up with some Foam Tabs onto the front of the book that had been layered with some of the Saffron prints and some pink cardstock from American Crafts. The pink crochet trim is also from the Saffron collection.


For the inside of the book, I stamped a sentiment from the OCL Tea Time set and layered it to more of the Saffron and solid carstocks.  For the little tea bag pocket, I cut a piece of cardstock 2" x 3 1/2" and scored it at 1/4"  and 1/2" and then removed the corner pieces (cutting on the score lines) and folding on the score lines to create the pocket.  I added some Tombow Mono Multi to the back of the pocket to hold it nice and snug to the right side of the book.  I stamped the tea cup and decorated the same as the teapot.  

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and take time to share a cup of tea with a friend.
