Tea Party fun!

I think I may have mentioned before that the Tea Party DP may be one of my all time favorites. During the Stampin Up! May Scrapbooking "Buy 3 get 1 free" promotion I stocked up in anticipation of making lots of things for my oldest daughter's birthday. However, as I am a little birthdayed-out right now, I decided to play with some of the paper to see what else I could come up with.

As you would imagine, it looks great with the co-ordinating Sweet Stems stamp set but I think it works well with the Crazy for Cupcakes set and wheel too!

Stamp Set - Sweet Stems, Best Yet
Cardstock & DP - Certainly Celery, Almost Amethyst, Whisper White. Tea Party DP
Inks - Certainly Celery, Almost Amethyst. So Saffron and Pretty in Pink Markers
Accessories - Designer Label punch, Scallop edge punch, Flower brad, Dimensionals.

This was CASED from Nancy's demo meeting. It was a make and take that I didn't get round to making while I was there. I think she used Pretty in Pink instead of Certainly Celery.

Stamp Set - Sweet Stems, Best Yet
Cardstock & DP - Certainly Celery, Whisper White. Tea Party DP
Inks - Black Stazon, Certainly Celery. Pretty in Pink, Almost Amethyst, So Saffron, Certainly Celery markers.
Accessories - Circle punch, Scallop circle punch, Scallop edge punch, So Saffron ribbon

Stamp Set - Crazy for cupcakes and matching cupcake wheel
Cardstock & DP - Barely Banana, So Saffron, Very Vanilla. Tea party DP (the cupcake case was paper pieced with DP also)
Inks - Chocolate Chip (wheel cartridge), Brown Stazon, Pretty in pink. SU markers for coloring
Accessories - Ticket corner punch, Scallop oval punch, Eyelet border punch, Dazzling Diamonds, Dimensionals

While enjoying some play time, I also broke out another couple of sets.

Stamp Set - Soft Summer (2009 mini)

Cardstock & DP - Very Vanilla, Bravo Burgundy. Parisian summer DP (retired)

Inks - Always Artichoke, Mellow Moss, Bravo Burgundy, So Saffron

Accessories - Bravo Burgundy ribbon, Antique brass brads, paper piercing (done with mat pack)

I love how this turned out and I think it would look good in many different colors.

Stamp Set - Warm Words, Bella's Border wheel

Cardstock & DP - Pink Pirouette, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White. Bella Rose DP

Accessories - Scallop Edge punch, Big Shot Flower layers #3 die, Big Shot Little Leaves sizzlit die, Chocolate Chip ribbon, Pretty in Pink ribbon, Chocolate Chip corduroy button brad

Tip - The stampin'around wheel guide is absolutely worth the money when using stamping wheels. Without it, I find it almost impossible to stay straight.
