To bring our fantastic sojourn at Tea Time to a close, we have a terrific tutorial from BlogStar Asia King. She’s here to dwell on her obsession with tea time and it’s accessories, plus she’s got a gorgeous project for you to make!
Hello Stampendous friends! Asia here and today I am inviting you for tea . When I first saw these awesome teapot stamps I squealed with joy, because I immediately knew what I would create with them. I have this thing you see, I just love vintage teapots and tea cups. I have a small collection at home which I am really proud of . So I made a scrapbook page to ‘celebrate’ my little teatime obsession…
As I also happen to have a set of beautiful teatime themed serviettes, I was able to include some napkin art in my layout. Can life get any better than this? lol .
- prepare your pattern papers, napkins and photos you’d like to scrap
- arrange your papers in layers and distress the edges
- adhere the papers to the base cardstock with re-positional adhesive. I find it difficult to work on a page when the elements don’t stay in place. With re-positional glue dots I can always rearrange the items if necessary
- cut out elements from your napkins and adhere to the page with Beacon’s Fast Finish medium
- for the banneer choose paper with a subtle background
- colour the images
- cut out the teapot flags for the banner
- finish off with ribbons and pearls
- heat from underneath to melt (if the layers are too thick, this is when re-positional glue stuff comes handy!)
- emboss a selection of chipboard shapes with Shabby White, Vintage Lilac and Aged Wine Embossing Enamel
- heat emboss ornate corner embellishments with Shabby White enamel
- make sure to wait until they cool down – it will take a bit longer that you might expect…
- to create a ‘secret’ journaling card you will need: old postcard, Tim Holtz Tag & Bookplates die, Rusty Hinge distress ink and blending tool, Coffee Archival ink, cling King Teapot and Luggage Labels
- die cut the tag from an old postcard
- ink the reverse side with Rusty Hinge ink
- spritz the background with coffee (I know, I know…but coffee works better than tea for this!). The ink will react with water and create a mottled effect
- stamp the King Teapot with Rusty Hinge
- stamp a chosen label from the Luggage Labels set with Coffee Archival
- add a sentiment. I found this sentiment long time ago and I’ve always loved it. Not sure who the author is, sorry. If you don’t have a favourite quote, make sure to check out our collection of the Digital Downloads - lots of WordArt inspiration there!
- stamp the cling Kettle On onto a patterned journaling card with Coffee Archival
- add bling to your photo and the rest of the page. I used Beacon’s Gem Tac to fix the gems in place
- adhere all the elements. Mount the photo onto 3d foam pads allowing sufficient room underneath for the secret journaling tag
- add final embellishments and flowers. For a shabby chic look alter the blooms by swiping Boss Gloss over the flowers and heat embossing them with Frantage enamels
That’s all for now! Thank you for popping in today and I hope you’ve enjoyed this little Tea Party . If you’d like to see more of the close up pictures, please visit my blog .
