Cup It Up
Did you know that the tea baggies fit perfectly inside our Cup of Happy floral cup?
When a card delivery can make one feel better AND deliver a little TLC, we think it's a winning combo! If you happen to make a pile of tea baggies, it's always nice to keep them on hand, to tuck into your Cup of Happy cards. We're pretty sure your recipients will love the thoughtful addition. Who doesn't like a card that's yummy!
We do recommend packaging up a duo such as this in a food-safe baggie that can be sealed for freshness and to protect your tea baggie card during shipping.
Yummy cards are pretty rad.
MOTHER's DAY GIFTing
Featuring the Tea Baggie Builder
With Mother's Day around the corner, we'd love to know, how do you spoil your momma?
A fancy dinner out? A beautiful piece of jewelry? Perhaps a gift from the heart?
Around here, we get pretty excited to roll up our sleeves and dive into some DIY projects. Well, this is true for ANY occasion, but we couldn't pass up this opportunity to bundle up our coordinating pretties into a Momma's Day DIY gift.
Cup of Te, an organic tea company based in Canada, which recently landed on Oprah's Favorite Things list, is the PERFECT addition to our little baggies.
With just a few of our products on hand, you can do the same! Let us show you how.
Our Tea Baggie Builder. These dies are SO versatile and fun to play with. Of course, we've used them as intended, to make a few tea baggies with our custom tea blend. You can watch a step-by-step video of some of the other tea baggies we've made here. But as you'll see below, our projects today feature many different ways to play up this set. Read on for a quick recap of how to use these fun designs.
WAYS TO USE
Make A CARD
Big and bold florals make it easy to add an accent to your cards, without a lot of fussing. We love that the florals can be stitched or used as-is!
Create A TAG
The flowers, leaves, circles and hearts make for adorable shaped tag creations. You can use these tags to dress up boxes, baggies, or parcels. The choice is up to you!
Dress a POCKET
Add a fun shape to a pocket, and adorn with other accent stamps. Then use the pocket to tuck in a tag, a bookmark, or anything you can dream up!
Cardstock is not the only way to have fun with dies! To add an extra special touch to your die-cuts, why not give painting a try? We're rocking three techniques today - watercolored flowers, alcohol ink leaves, and our favorite - gouache accents on the dark leaves. It's a favorite medium around here and we're crushing HARD on this technique. If you're new to gouache - it's a paint medium that's just the right consistency between acrylic and watercolor, which ensures a smooth flow and opaque coverage that we love.
Once your diecuts are ready for action, there are so may ways to add detail with other items from our shoppe! Let's take a peek at them in detail.
If you look closely, you'll also see a couple of fun patterns! The first - a floral strip on the box - was created by stamping up the tiny outline floral from our Blooming Teapot set colored up with gouache. Just below that, we have a Pocketful of Joy background which we stamped in white, and colored in with a white gel pen for a super vibrant look. To get the same look, we recommend our favorite brand of gel pen, which you can find here. And our favorite sparkly sequins here.
