My Steeped Tea

A new project came my way a couple weeks ago, in that I needed to make a tie between a company called My Steeped Tea and weddings!  A family friend, Ann Marie Kenny is a consultant for this growing company and was attending some bridal shows so she asked me to prepare some tags. I must say its a neat idea to try this for a bridal shower or baby shower.  There's cute wedding gifts and favors, of course.  A tea bar for an outdoor wedding ceremony is fabulous.

Here are some of the items we came up with!  This time I used purely Stampin' Up products.

These boxes are made using the Boutique Boxes Designer Printed Kit and the cute little tea time trinkets. There's also a couple small pieces of the Print Poetry DSP paper pack.  All of these items are from the Spring catalogue.  I adore this pack - the feathers and pre-cut doilies are awesome.  As a scrapbooker I would use this for anything.  The baker's twine also comes in these packs.  Use these boxes for anything from wedding favors to gifts!

 Next is a card I made that could be used as a wedding shower invitation.  The stamp set is adorable. Supplies used is Print Poetry DSP paper pack, vanilla cardstock, Stampin Up doilies, vellum, 'Oh Hello stamp set', soft suede ink, early espresso cardstock and Tea Shoppe stamp set.

Next are some clear envelopes that I made using the Bigz die called Petite Pockets... Its truly that easy to make these envelopes.  I used vellum and some sticky strip to hold it together.   I then used some linen thread as well as the twitterpated paper to label them.  I used the Morning Cup stamp set for this and colored using the blender pens and ink pads. You'll see  basic pearls, as well as a piecing mat.  I also used the decorative label and curly label punches.

The next couple pictures continue to use the punches as well as the Morning Cup tea set.  I added some pink pirouette ribbon, some crumb cake tulle and the chantilly trim ribbon.

If you think that looks like a rattle (which I must admit, I did), its actually a tea infuser with a sweet heart... speaking of which... if you like the infuser, these heart shaped tea cups are the sweetest!!!

Make these simple tea bag holders with any tea by just tying baker's twine and a punch. I used the Stampin' Up heart framelits for this particular one.

The tea sticks, I used some banners to add a fun element to them.  I used the Print Poetry and Twitterpated paper along with some pearls and linen thread.  The card was made using the Tea Shoppe stamp set, Print poetry paper, soft suede ink, pacific blue cardstock, vanilla cardstock and the flowers come from the spring catalogue Artisan Embellishment kit. Check out this link to see the beautiful little girl's tea set.
In addition to the above, I again used the Print Poetry DSP paper pad, Tea Shoppe stamp set, soft swede ink, some discontinued hat pins and the lace also comes from the Artisan Embellishment kit.
The next labels are similar to some wedding ones I did in October.  This is a simple stamp from the Apothecary Art stamp set, labels framelets, pool party cardstock and basic pearls. The tin uses the Morning Tea stamp set, as well as the discontined melon mambo grosgrain ribbon, melon mambo cardstock, Stampin' Up brights collection pens, as well as just a marker for the doodling.

Finally I used My Digital Studio (MDS) to create this sign for the table at the weding show.  I found the bride and groom image online, brought it into MDS to create the border and text.  I then added the basic pearls and trim (adorn elements kit) to give it some more "punch". I also backed it onto Basic Greay cardstock.
If you have any questions on what I used or how I did it, just send a comment and I'll let you know.
