September Blog Hop


I'm so excited to be able to play along with the blog hop this month, and with such a fun challenge :

"One of the most fun things about this hobby is the people you meet, whether in person or online, and the things you learn from them.  Now is your chance to show off any skills you might have learned from a fellow stamper, and perhaps even give them a little shout out to thank them for the inspiration they have provided.  Create a project using one of your favorite learned skills and perhaps after a little blog hopping, we will ALL learn some new tips and tricks and continue to pass on the love of this hobby!"


This challenge fits right in with a project I've been working on already - favors for the baby shower tea. (You can see the invites I did here.) 


I got the idea and the template for these tea boxes from Michele (Derby). She did such a fantastic job with them I thought they would be the perfect! 


Here's my take


You can't really tell in the pictures, but I embossed a circle with standard circle nesties and masked it before stamping the background.

I just love how these have turned out!

Supplies
Stamps :: PTI - Tea for Two, Favor It Baby, Polka Basics II

Ink :: PTI - Plum Pudding, Vintage Cream
Cardstock :: PTI - Kraft, Rustic Cream
Other :: PTI - Tea Box template, Tea for Two die, standard circle Nestibilities 

Thanks for stopping by,
