Hey there coffee/tea/cocoa loving crafters! I'm joining a few of my fellow CLC designers and the Studio Katia Design Team as we celebrate International TEA day with a fun hop featuring some of Studio Katia's clear stamp sets, dies and sequin goodies! I just love Studio Katia and was thrilled to be invited to participate! I selected the most adorable bear set called Winter Kobe to coordinate with the Sweet Latte set I had in my stash. I also paired it up with the Brush Stroke set- a fun set of stripes you can stamp individually or in a cluster.
If you've hopped here from Erin's blog, you're on the right path. If not, no worries, just hop along after me or scroll down for a complete line-up of participants! Studio Katia is offering a sweet prize too, so make sure to leave comments along the way! Commenting will be open from Dec. 15-22 and the prize announcement will be made on my Sunday Sip post on December 23.
I tried to incorporate some "tea leaves" instead of holly- so as you might notice, I have quite a few leaves here and there. The bag is a huge bag of tea leaves. HEE HEE...
After stamping and coloring the bear/bag, I stamped the cup and teapot from the Sweet Latte set. I added some snowflakes using the Winter Kobe set and painted over these images with ivory acrylic paint to lighten them up. I did the same with the background panel. The stripes were stamped with Catherine Pooler ink.
I gave the tag a similar layout. This time, instead of the teapot and teacup, I chose to stamp the sentiment from the Sweet Latte set, and stamp the bear and tree from the Winter Kobe set. I colored them with the Copics and then mounted them onto the tag.
April White Diamond Crystals and November Crystals) and some Crystal Stars to the tree and to the tag itself with some diamond glaze adhesive.
