Waltzingmouse turns 2!!

Waltzingmouse is 2 years old!! Can you believe it!?!? And I'm so thrilled and honored to be a part of Claire's design team. Not only are her stamp and template designs gorgeous, fun, and creative, but Claire is the absolute SWEETEST!!

In celebration, I decided to make the teacup and saucer with a matching card. It was so fun to make. For the card, I started off using the WMSC #48 found HERE. I just stamped one of the smaller doily images, from the Dainty Doilies Large set, with Versamark, and embossed them with white ep. I used one of the banner images from the Bitty Banners set to frame my sentiment, from the set Teeny Trees, which I stamped with Smokey Shadow Versafine. The edges were ink distressed with Antique Linen Ranger Distress ink, and I made added a border with Pale gold Krylon ink. I topped it off with an EK Success Border Punch, a PTI button, some Seam Binding Ribbon, Embroidery Thread, and some Kaisercraft Pearls.

I printed out the Nice Cup of Tea template onto Vintage Cream (PTI) cardstock, and inked up all the edges with Antique Linen Ranger Distress Ink. Then I stamped the gorgeous flourish, from the set Join Us, with Versamark and White ep, all around the cup and saucer edges. I added a rim with Pale Gold Krylon ink also.

I made a doily for under the cup by stamping doilies from the Dainty Doilies Large set with Versamark onto Vellum, embossing with White ep, and diecutting with the largest Big Scallop Circle Die by Spellbinders. I love how it turned out. (If you click on the photos, you will be able to see the details more clearly.)

The little teabag tag was created by stamping this sweet little image, from the set Afternoon Tea, with Smokey Shadow Versafine. I also added a sweet little Zva Creative Rhinestone Flower to the tag.


See the little bag inside? I just sewed some organza fabric together, put a little Starbucks vanilla scone inside (what's tea without a scone, right?), and tied it with some silver cording.


That's it for my project today. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed making it. Be sure to stop my Claire's Blog Waltzingmouse Makes, and wish Waltzingmouse a Happy Birthday!!

Happy Stamping!!
