Welcome to International Tea Day! Today the Coffee Loving Cardmakers are the Tea Loving Cardmakers and we're celebrating with a fun little hop! We have two teams "battling" it out today; Team Paper Smooches and Team Graciellie! We're sharing projects using some of these two Super Sponsors' Tea themed products... it's gonna be a tough one because both have created some awesome stuff! The Inlinkz is below for easy hopping!
I'm on Team Paper Smooches and here's how I was inspired:
Have you seen the pretty new paper pad over at Paper Smooches? The Rainbow Sherbet paper pad has lots of fun patterns in some really fun colors! Don't you just love that Houndstooth pattern? And that frame from the Fab Frames set is one of my favorite dies right now!
I went with traditional Tea for this one with that sweet little Teapot and Cup from the Coffee and Tea dies. And the sentiment from Caffeinated Two is perfect! I thought it would be fun to add it to a Speech Bubble. My coffee and tea speak to me for sure!
And the Coffee and Tea die set has that cute little teabag! I cut a few from some purple and yellow solid from the Sherbet pad and then some white and raspberry cardstock as well and made the frame into a shaker.
And then I needed to get out the Caffeinated set for some Bubble Tea!
For this one I ink distressed the background with a couple purples. I stamped some of the bubbles from the Caffeinated set in the deep purple and some second generation of the same color. Then I used the Hot Dots Stencil to add even more dots in a couple different sizes... lightly with some more of the same distress oxides I blended with.
I stamped, cut and colored the tea cup and adorable little boba! I just love those guys!! I layered them onto the tag cut from another one of the prints from Rainbow Sherbet. I used some of the colors in this tag to color in my tea... actually the purple in this paper inspired the whole purpe theme.
The sentiment is from Caffeinated Two and I cut the bow out of Copic friendly paper and colored it to match the bubble tea.
I think I won this round with a one-two punch! Now get hopping to see what my teamies have got for you!
Thank you so much for stopping! Hope you had fun and be sure to see my other post for today for some more Tea and shaker fun!
