Fall Tea Cup

Hi everyone and Happy November! I want to share an Autumn themed tea cup I created for ClearSnap! 

I started by printing out a Tea Cup Printable from Layers of Color which is found on Pinterest. I printed on burnt orange cardstock and fussy cut tea cup and saucer images out and adhered all pieces together, including a paper doily that I added to the sauce before adhering to the cup. I also glued a small wadded piece of tissue paper to the bottom of the tea cup.

I cut Millinery Leaves Diecuts from white cardstock and inked the glass tray with the following ColorBox Blends Inks: Melon, Frog, Golden, Sunshine and Nutmeg. I added water to each ink and applied the ink mixture randomly to each leaf diecut.

While the leaves were still a little damp I shaped with my hand and let dry.

I adhered lace around the top of the tea cup and added dry moss inside the cup.

Once the leaves where dry I shaped and inked the edges of each leaf with Top Boss Embossing Powder Stamp Pad. I added Copper Embossing Powder to each of leaf diecut and set with a heat tool. I completed the same steps for each Golden Sparkle and Opalescent Embossing Powders as I did the Copper Embossing Powder.

I adhered the leaves inside tea cup along with mini pumpkins and mini pine cones. I finished by placing tulle and cording as a filler between mini pumpkins and mini pine cones. Now are you ready to create one for yourself? 😀 As always if you have any question please let me know.

Eileen Hull: Love Notes Card

Hi everyone! I’m back with another project I created this past January for Eileen Hull’s newest diecut collection called Book Club Chapter 2 to display at Creativation. At the time I made this card Valentine’s Day was around the corner but this could be used as an anniversary or just because I love you card too. To get started I folded a piece of 6″x12″ patterned cardstock in half to create a 6″x6″ base for the card.

First I layered different pieces of cardstock to the card base before adhering to the card along with a gold paper heart doily.

I cut two strips of cardstock 2″x6″ and 3″x6″ and with a decorative punch I punched a border along the length of each piece of  cardstock. I found the center of each piece of cardstock and cut down the center leaving about an inch from the bottom not cut.

The 3″x6″ piece of cardstock I adhered the sides and bottom to the card base. I did leave an inch on each side not glued to the card because this will need to be “rolled”. Complete the same steps on the 2″x6″ piece of cardstock as the 3″x6″ piece.

Before “stuffing” the pocket I cut one of the Heart Journaling Card Dies from white cardstock, lightly inked the edges  and adhered to the card base along with a piece of vellum.

I used the Graphic 45 Mon Amour Tags and Pockets and Mon Amour Decorative Chipboard embellishments also on the card. The G45 envelope I added one of the mini hearts from the Heart Journaling Card Dies as a closure to hold the envelope flap down.

To finish I added tulle, gold thread and pearl sprays to fill the inside of the pocket. Be sure to stop by Eileen Hull’s blog to see the latest Book Club Chapter 2 projects from the Inspiration Team! You can find those posts HERE and HERE. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Thinking of You Roses Card

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a quick card I created with some leftover cardstock scraps, diecuts, etc. that I had laying on my desk. I started by folding a 6″x6″ piece of patterned cardstock in half to create a base for my card. Next I had scraps of cardstock that had roses on them so I fussy cut those out and along with half of a doily I adhered all to the front of the card.

I added Stickles to the larger rose and mini lime green gems to the smaller roses. I watercolored four of the smallest Romance Flower Diecuts, crinkled and glued two each together. Added a dot of Stickles to the center of each, added a leaf sprig, tulle and twine to finish off the flowers. I printed the “thinking of you” verbiage from the computer and matted with a patterned cardstock before adhering to the card.

If you have any questions about this card please let me know.
Also I would like to submit this card to the following challenge:

Java Queen

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:

Witch Candy Box

Hi everyone! Today I am here to share my Inspiration Team project this month for Eileen Hull. This month’s theme is Halloween and Holidays and I decided to try and create a little witch from the Cookie Box diecut to hold candy in. 

First I cut the cookie box from Mat Board and assembled according to directions.  I used black mat board which is no longer available from Sizzix but you can paint or cover with cardstock.

For the hat I cut from Purple Crackle Glitter Cardstock a Cone diecut ( and assembled) a Scalloped Circle and a 1 1/2″x4″ piece of Halloween Stripe Glitter Cardstock (I used the lime green side of the cardstock) for the face.

I centered the cone in the middle of the scalloped circle die  and adhered to the scalloped circle. I cut a two inch wide piece of black tulle and tied around the cone to create a band. Next I cut out several Romance Flowers diecuts from Orange Crackle Glitter Cardstock and lightly wet, crinkled and let dry before putting together. I added a Dew Drop to the center of a few of the flowers.
I cut a Spring Leave diecut from the Moss Green Glitter Cardstock, lightly wet, shaped and let dry. I used the Twist and Style Craft Tool to create some “twigs” and then I adhered everything to the brim of the hat.

Next I cut several 1/4″ strips of Black Bats Glitter Cardstock, crinkled and adhered to either side of the witch’s face. 


For the face I used white sequins, Men’s Dew Drops, a green gem for the eyes and nose. The mouth I punched out a small scalloped circle and then used a circle to punch out a small section that looks like teeth.

There you have it my little witch candy holder. If you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Jane Austen and Tea

Hi everyone! Last month was a sparse month as for as projects and blogging went  I started the next phase of remodeling of the laundry room/den and kitchen. My parents have been coming over four days out of the week each week which I am very thankful for…it has been slow going but without them it would definitely be a snails pace as far as what has been accomplished so far. Ceiling have been scraped of popcorn and painted up to where the den ends and the kitchen begins as well as walls primed and today we start painting the walls with an actually color…YEAH!!! 
Well, enough about remodeling and on with this little teacup I created. I started with Teacup diecut and cut it from Anna Griffin’s Garden Party Stack and assembled according to the directions.

 I adhered a wade of tissue paper inside of the teacup. I purchased the Jane image from Art Tea Life by One Crab Apple on Etsy. I printed and fussy cut her out and adhered to the tissue paper inside of the cup. I cut a strip of dark green tulle and tied off every two inches…it beats trying to sewing it…and then I started bunching it up inside the teacup and gluing to the tissue paper as I went.

I used the leaves out of the Secret Garden and the Hydrangea (no longer available) diecuts. I cut those out and shaped. I used my Martha Stewart punch for the little leaf sprigs which I shaped also. I added flowers from my stash along with pearl sprays, sequins, Dew Drops, trim around the base and I bunched up a paper doily to finish off Miss Jane and her cup of tea.

Also I would like to submit this little teacup for: 

I have a couple more of these teacups cut out waiting to be put together and decorated…yes, I have a thing for teacups…and will be sharing these with you when I get the chance. 🙂
If you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Canvas Corp: Chicks and Tea Cups

Hi everyone! I am here to share a project I created for Canvas Corp’s Joy’s of Spring Challenge. We were given the colors below to use as inspiration and asked to think about what would be our joys of Spring? Also we could not do a card or an Easter Egg as our project.


The Tea Cup was cut from the Pink and Ivory Dot Reverse Cardstock and put together according to the instructions that can be found HERE. I wadded up some tissue paper and adhered inside the teacup. This is what I use as a base to glue flowers, moss, etc onto. Also I added lace and flat back pearls to the base of the teacup.



I fussy cut from Spring Garden cardstock the little chicks and painted them with the following Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists: SunflowerItalian Sunset, Moss and Bittersweet. I spritzed each color into a separate bowl and watered down before painting onto the chicks.


Once dry I adhered to the tissue paper that is inside the teacup and then added moss to cover the tissue paper.



I punched flowers from the following cardstocks: Yellow and Ivory Mini Dot Reverse and Pink Lemonade and shaped and added a dew drop or sequin to the center of each. I finished off with a little tulle, thread, buttons and more sequins inside of the teacup and around the rim of the cup I added sequin and dew drops.

There you have my take on this challenge and if you have any questions on how I created this project please let me know. Also be sure to check out the other design team members project for inspiration HERE.

Once Upon a Time There was a Fairy that Lived in a Vase

Hi everyone! I am back with my other vase I created using Eileen Hull’s 3D vase diecut. As  with the other vase I cut it out from mat board and spritzed with Verdigris glimmer mist…one of my favorite Tattered Angels products! Once dry I glued the vase together.

The fairy image I found on the Land of Nod Studio blog. I printed, fussy cut the image out and added Stickles to the wings.

I added crinkled tissue inside of the vase and then adhered moss and the fairy image on top on the tissue paper.

The pansy/flower diecut is new from Eileen Hull…which hasn’t come out yet so I don’t have a link to that so stay tuned. 🙂 I actually watered down Sugar Plum Fairy (discontinued)  and Moss glimmer mists and painted the flower shapes on both side and let dry. 

Once the flower pieces were dry I shaped and put together. I added a button and Dew Drop to the center and adhered to the fairy along with pink tulle and sewing thread.

I added sequins and mini flat back pearls to finish off the vase. 

Here are my two vases along with past projects…snowman candy drawer and you can barely see the corner of the suitcase (pink and lime green) in Eileen Hull’s booth at CHA. 🙂
I hope you enjoyed this project and if you have any questions please let me know.

Vintage Lady and a Rose

Hi everyone! I am here to share a project I created using Eileen Hull’s Box Diecut and her new flower and leaf diecuts which I don’t have a link to those yet since they haven’t came out  but I will try and come back and add the links when they are released. 🙂
I had actually decorated this box several months ago and the idea I had for it wasn’t going to work out so I put it aside and “sat” on it.

The vintage woman printable I purchased from Eclectic Anthology’s Massive Vintage Victorian Graphics and Clip Art Bundle. I sized the image down, printed off and then fussy cut out…also the butterfly printable is from The Graphic Fairy.

I filled the inside of the box with tissue and then adhering the woman, tulle and moss in the box. The rose I spritzed with Wedding Pink Glimmer Mist, let dry, shaped and glued together before adhering to the moss and tulle in the box. Also I added a little bit of Stickles to the edges of the flower. 

The leaves I used a variety of chalk inks to both sides of the diecut and then I shaped with a stylus and added to the top of the box and to the rose. I adhered flat back pearls and lace to the box to finish it off. If you have any questions about this project please let me know.
