Tea Together Tea Bag Holder for Mother’s Day

Today I’m sharing an adorable tea bag holder using the Tea Together stamp set and coordinating Tea Time Dies.  This is a perfect little gift for Mother’s Day.   Simply tuck a Starbucks card and a tea bag inside for a quick, easy project.

I cased this project from Shelli Gardner, Stampin’ Up!’s co-founder.  Shelli had a card similar to this and I thought it was adorable so I turned it into a tea bag holder.


Tea Together Stamp Set, Tea Time Framelits, Tea Bag Holder, Mother's Day, Stamp with Peggy


For this Tea Together tea bag holder, I used Powder Pink cardstock (retiring) with Smoky Slate accent and Shimmery White for the Stitched Shape Circle.  The tea cup is stamped with Memento ink and colored with Smoky Slate Combo Stampin’ Blends.  The flower is stamped on Shimmery White cardstock and colored with Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend and Light Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blend, then cut out with the framelits.  Then add some Wink of Stella to the flower to give it some added sparkle.  To close the holder, I used the Petal Pink/Whisper White Ribbon — wrap around the tea bag holder and tie a bow.  Next you’ll add the Stitched Shape Circle with dimensionals — I put a dimensional on the top, bottom and both sides — this helps hold the ribbon in place.

What a great way to say Happy Mother’s Day to your mom, daughter or friends.

Just Because for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is right around the corner and I have a fabulous card for you using the Just Because Stamp Set.  My color combo came from the Tea Room Specialty Designer Paper — Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry.
Isn’t this vase of flowers adorable — what mom doesn’t love to receive some flowers.
I remember when my kids were little and they picked Dandelions for me — nothing better.
I would put them right into a vase to show how important they were to me.
