When I like a design of mine, I try to turn it into sets. I made ten of these – half with holiday sentiments and the remaining with non-holiday sentiments. Most of the sequins are from The Ton. They sell some amazing couture mixes (so you don’t have to create your own).
1. Stamp the large circle from Concord & 9th’s Let’s Chat set onto watercolor cardstock with Ranger black waterproof ink
2. Draw an outline and handle to create a cup look. I don’t know how to draw so I did the best I could
3. Draw another larger circle as a saucer
4. Watercolor with Winsor & Newton watercolor paints (or any other watercolors) and add drops around cup
5. Stamp design onto saucer
6. Create sequin shaker pockets using Fuse tool
7. Die-cut tea tags dies and stamp sentiments
8. Staple twine on tea tags and shaker pockets
9. Die-cut spoons
10. Stamp sentiment onto black cardstock with VersaMark and heat set with white or gold embossing powder
11. Attach watercolor cardstock to cardbase
12. Add sentiment banner and spoon with foam tape
13. Add tea bag with Scor-Tape and tea tag with foam tape
