IB141 Tweet Tea

Hello stampers!  Thursday brings us a new Inspired By challenge....look at this sweet image and optional sketch!


I think I must be the only stamper in the world who doesn't own a teacup stamp or die...well, I own one little one, but it wasn't going to work with the bird that I wanted!  I remembered getting a gift of these pretty papers from my friend Mary Rose, and lo and behold, there was a tea teacups, but I thought I could make this work!  So here we go:

I don't remember the name of this SU DSP, sorry, but I thought the colors and patterns replicated the designs on the teacup in the inspiration.  I cut out the tea container and popped it up on a quilt pattern DSP, matted with Bashful Blue cardstock.  My bird is from the retired Birds and Blooms die; it was cut from some watercolor paper and colored with inks and markers:

I made a couple little banners with another piece of the DSP and stamped a sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings. 

I mounted it all on a Very Vanilla card base and left the inside blank for a little note!  

I hope you'll play along with our challenge; the design team has a plethora of teacups to make up for the ones that I didn't have, so I hope you'll pop over to the Inspired By blog to see what they created! Thanks for visiting today!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I don't own a tea cup stamp or die either, LeAnne, or even a coffee cup. LOL, I need to get with the program! Love the papers and that sweet little bird!

That tea tin worked perfectly and so did the little bird! This is charming LeAnne!

That tea tin is just perfect - what a clever solution, and not a teacup in sight!

The tea cannister is a brilliant substitute for the teacups!
Love the mix of papers, too.
