Waltzingmouse Stamps August Blog Waltz


Good morning and welcome to Waltzingmouse Stamps August Blog Waltz. Our theme for this month is Tea/Coffee and you can find all the details on how you can join in HERE on Claire's blog.

The Waltzingmouse DT have another agenda for this month's waltz - and that is to bid two of our dear friends/design team colleagues adieu! Sadly we are losing both Bonnie and Carly :(  So we have made our cards in honour of these wonderfully talented ladies who will be sorely missed.


My papers are from the Lost & Found 2 Blush Collection from My Mind's Eye. I am LOVING these papers. I've paper pieced the tea pot {from the Afternoon Tea stamp set}, cut it out using circle Nestabilities and matted it with a scalloped circle. The sentiment is from Say it Loud and I've broken it up onto 2 mini tags, which I tied together with bakers twine. 


I added some white rose trim, pearl topped pins and flat backed pearls to embellish and I decorated the inside of the card to match. 

Thanks so much for dropping by. Happy hopping and have a wonderful day.

Love the colors and the tea pot is very cute! I'm seeing too many clay ones in day to day use so color is nice.
Andy bought me a wardrobe to help house the stash in. I'll have to take pics for you soon.

This is divine, Sandie. I wish that I had a tea pot as lovely as the one you have created here. I adore your dark stitching on your light colors. What a fantastic look, and your little pin/sentiment is lovely. Awesome job, my dear.

What a beautiful card. I love the paper pieced teapot. That is gorgeous paper. I especially like the creative stitching on this one. Some zig zag, some straight.

A wonderful card. The teapot looks amazing patterned like that, and the super stitching really works well. I will be trying some of these techniques!!!
