Today I am so excited to be part of the Verve Project Parade where the theme is Hostess Gifts! A HUGE thank you to Shannan Tuebner for all her help this morning with getting pictures up (you are a life saver and you totally ROCK chica!) For my project today, I decided to use one of my fave sets - I love the Cup of Life Verve stamp set and so created a little Tea Tray full little Tea Goodies. This tray has Tea Leaves in a little tin can ( I love tin cans!), tea cup with strainer for drinking tea at home, a travel mug French press for drinking tea on the go and a set of notecards (I was going to include some cookies - but I ate all of those! lol!) . Here is a picture of the Tea Tray Gift Set:
Here is a picture of the notecard set - it comes with 5 cards that say "Just for You" with a matching envelopes. I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch #103 for the card:
I also used a tag punch to create little tags for the French Press, cup and tea tin: It was so fun and easy and most of all made something very simple feel yummy :) Here are some pictures of the tags that I created:
The same tag goes for the cup. And lastly - one of my fave things to do is to take some unfinished wood and paint and stamp on it. After finishing - you just add a clear lacquer (I chose a gloss finish) and it protects the wood. Here is a picture of the tea tray - I painted it goosefeather, burnt umber and azul blue and then used the Bountiful backgounds polkadots, the sentiment from Delightful and Delicious and the teacups from a Cup of Life to create this little tray:
Accessories: unfinished wood tray and clear gloss lacquer, spellbinders, corner rounder, ribbon (offray), button from stash, Kaiser Blue rhinestones, EK success punch, liquid pearls
I hope you have been enjoying all the lovely projects!!! And not to worry, there are more projects coming in the next days!!! A huge thank you to Julee for this amazing honor to be part of Verve! I am still pinching myself!!! Have a wonderful, delightful and delicious day!
