March SOTM
I had so much fun creating with this stamp set! I sometimes feel like I get in a rut, creating cards that are the same shape/size all the time. So I decided to use a 5.5" square card base this month, cut from our Kraft paper (although you can't see the base in my photos). The large polka dot pattern in the Sugar Rush paper packet needs a little extra room to really pop - I think it worked!?

I used a technique called "paper piecing" with the stacked tea cups. I stamped the image in Slate ink on three different pattern papers. Then I cut out one cup from each paper & stacked them back up. I'm really please how it turned out.

I also designed this tea bag holder (inspired by Tina Law) for an upcoming event. These are going to make great little gifts!
