A Cup of Tea Warms the Soul Tag

Hi everyone! I wanted to hop on the blog today and share a quick tag I created using Pam Bray’s Chat Time Rubber Stamps by Emerald Creek. I received this stamp set while I was at Creativation and I was super pumped because Pam is a dear friend of mine and because I finally had my hands on one of her sets of stamps.
I started by placing the larger of the two mugs onto the MISTI Stamp Tool and stamping on a piece of patterned cardstock from the Prima Dulce Collection. I fussy cut the stamped image out and with a Craft Knife cut around the outer edge of the stamped mug to create a slit.
I already had a tag that I had added excess inks from pervious projects to so all I did was emboss it with the Brush Dot Embossing Folder and start adding bits of patterned cardstock I had laying around. Before I adhered the mug to the tag I placed one of the Paper Dolls in the slit.
I decorated the mug with flatback pearls and sequins. I also added flowers and leaves that I had cut from the Floral Garden Diecuts, I shaped the flowers and leaves and adhered loops of thread to the back before gluing to the mug. I also placed the “A Cup of Tea Warms the Soul like a Good Friend” sentiment (I cut it from a scrap piece of G45 cardstock) underneath/next to the mug. 

Next I added a bit of pom pom trim to the bottom of the tag and instead of cut off the excess I left it hanging and I tied a lace bow at the top of the tag. There you have it! I’m so happy with how it turned out and if you would like to see more of Pam’s creativity you can stop by her blog HERE.

Hi everyone! I am back with another quick project that I created using the Tea Cup Diecut. If you haven’t guess I love tea cups even though I don’t like tea let alone coffee but I sure do enjoy adding flowers and quirky little printables to them. Actually I had cut out this tea cup last year and had pull it together and then put a side because I wasn’t sure how I wanted to decorate it. Do you ever do that? Raise your hand if you have several unfinished projects laying around. 🙋🙋🙋

Well, enough about that! Lets talk about how I decorated this tea cup. 😉 I added pink velvet ric rac to the base of the tea cup and sequins and Dew Drops around the rim.

Next I adhered wadding up tissue paper to the inside of the cup. Next I fussy cut the coffee girl and you can find that printable HERE and glued her to the tissue paper and then added the moss. I added paper flowers from my stash, some Leaf Diecuts leftover from another project, lace and tulle to finish off my project. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Also I would like to submit this project for the following challenge:
