CTC#76 Have a Cuppa for Mum

Hello and welcome back for this weeks projects. You can find all the CTC blog participants here
Pages 34-36 have some sweet projects made using the fabulous Have a Cuppa set  and matching framelits which I resisted buying initially. This is the project we made for mother's Day at March Class. I have CASED the Wisteria Wonder layout of the card at the right of this picture on page 34.

For the Class we made one of these fabulous self closing boxes which holds a little selection of tea bags, and the card coordinates for a sweet little Mother's Day Gift. 

The teapot sits on a vellum circle, but I needed to layer a patterned vellum over the Vellum cardstock as it needed the extra firmness to be stable. I used the Circles framelits to cut the ring frame from the Shine On Kraft DSP. - this frame hides the glue dots which hold the 2 layers of vellum together. the cute floral Paper is from the Love Blossoms DSP paper stack. Watermelon Wonder does look very bright in these photos, and it shows how luscious the ribbon is!

If you would like to make the self closing box I have more samples and links to the tutorials here

 So to show an alternative using the same layout and an older stamp or product I was able to use the circle of card from the inside of the frame, and the Butterflies framelits worked perfectly.

I have done lots of projects using the cuppa and kettle framelits - you can see my post title "An Afternoon Tea Tree" here- which has the items I submitted to be selected as a display stamper for some more ideas on how to use this great set.
I have one other card to show you using the fabulous teacups framelits. This is one I made for On Stage and showcases 3 of the new colours and an image from the new stampset -Love and Affection

Thanks for looking, enjoy the rest of the Hop as you continue around the loop. I'm excited to see what everyone has come up with for these beautiful products. Next up is Rachel

And don't forget that we love to see what you create too, come and share with us....

Happy Stamping, Liz
