A Cup of Tea with some LOVE! CBC82, CD50

Today I have two projects to share with you. The first one is for the Creative Belli Blog this week, and the challenge is glitter or rhinestones. Here is what I came up with.

I used pink CS for the base, and some PP that I got as a freebie from my LSS's booth at a stamp show this past summer. The letters are sticky cuts from SU. I used some glitter on the "L, V, & E", and I used microbeads on the heart/O. Very simple card, but I liked the way it turned out. Plus the added bonus, I used up some stuff I have laying around...which is the point of the Creative Belli Blog...use up supplies and stamps we already have.

My next project tonight is for two challenges. First, I used the colors from this weeks Color Dare Challenge (Ruby Red, Creamy Caramel, and Bermuda Bay). Next, I used the challenge from The Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Blog (my LSS) which was to use THIS mug template from Clear and Simple Stamps. Here is what I came up with.

I used some PP I had purchased over the summer at a LCS. The colors were perfect! I used Bermuda bay CS for the handle, and the bottom (which you can't see) is Creamy caramel CS. I found some ribbon left over from some barrettes that I made that was just the right color for ruby red. I thought this would be cute to use at end of year teacher gifts this year....yes I think that far ahead. =) I will probably make a few more and either fill with a gift card for coffee/tea, or some tea packets like in the picture.

Well that is all for today. Thanks so much for stopping by.

Jessica, your love card is so pretty. I like the heart in place of the "O" and all that sparkle.

Your mug turned out so cute. Paper you chose is perfect. These are so fun to put together and you're right, they would make a perfect end of the year gift for a teacher with a Tim card inside! Great idea.

Thanks for posting your mug so I could see what you did with the pattern.
