Teapots & Teacups!

Thank you for stopping by today!!

Well it's been awhile again, a long while.  I've just been posting everything on Instagram (@schalking) and haven't been posting to my blog....  So I'm going to give it a go again.

Happy New Year!  Happy 2015!  I hope this year has started well for you!  I've been stamping away, and baking and walking (and eating)!!

Today I want to share with you this cute Confetti Garland card I made for the Make it Monday #199 - Confetti Garlands.  What a cute idea!  Check out the Capture the Moment Blog and check out the cards!

You can add sequins, buttons, felt goodies, ribbon and paper die cuts, anything really that you can put on a garland (just punch a hole!).  I've been working on some teapot and tea cup cookies and tags for a little girl's tea party birthday party, so I have tea on the brain!

Here is Betsy's card (she also has a tutorial on how to create a confetti garland):

It's so cute, and the garland really pops with the white background!

Here is my card:

I had a lot of fun with this card!  I started with the Tea for Two Stamp Set from Papertrey Ink.

Then I chose the Sweet Girl double-sided card stock collection in the 6 x 6 paper pad.  The ink pads I used are from Stampin' Up!.  The colors are Strawberry Slush, Bermuda Bay and Daffodil Delight.

Oh and those cute little teapots and tea cups in the garland are from Taylored Expressions.  They're the cutest little dies, tiny and just perfect for tea party decor (and confetti garlands)!

This card can be a birthday, valentine, anniversary or "just because" card.  I've left the inside blank for now, until I decide who gets this card!  Hey, it could even be a Mother's Day card!

Along with teapots and tea cups, I tied little pieces of ribbon on the garland to add a little bit of "shabbiness".   Well I hope you enjoyed your stop by my blog today!  Thanks again for stopping by and have a pleasant evening!
