CTMH Seasonal Expressions 2 - Blossom and Treats of Friendship

Create with Care
Treats of Friendship stamp with Blossom paper pack

Those that know me, know that I love anything coffee or tea!  So, naturally when I saw the "Treats of Friendship" stamp set in the new Seasonal Expressions 2 Idea Book (you will be able to view and order starting April 1st!) from Close To My Heart I had to have it.  It was the first item on my shopping list.  Take a look at all the fun images...

Treats of Friendship - Item # C1616

The red outlined shape indicates that there is a matching Cricut cut on one of our cartridges.  In this case it is Artbooking.

Use our Shin-Han markers to color your tea and cup!

I couldn't decide if I preferred the stamped image plain or colored in with our Shin-Han alcohol markers.  What do you think?

Here's how I made the card using our new Blossom paper pack:

  • Cut a 4" x 8" piece of Lagoon cardstock
  • Score at 4" and fold in half for your base
  • Cut a 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" square of patterned paper and adhere to the base
  • Adhere a strip of Smoothie Striped Washi Tape from edge to edge
  • Cut the tea bag shape on your Cricut at 3" with the Real Dial Size on.
  • Stamp the steam in Desert Sand ink
  • Stamp the cup in Lagoon ink
  • Stamp the sentiment in Sunset ink
  • Adhere with pop squares
  • Embellish with Coral Reef Sequins
  • Used retired Baker's Twine to add the tea bag strings

I hope you find as many wonderful uses for this stamp set as I have!  Stay tuned to see the adorable tea bag holder that I've made.  I will feature it in my next post.
