Papertrey Tuesday



Happy 15th! That means we're waking up to another fantastic Papertrey Ink release day! I bet you love this release as much as I do. Each month I try to do at least one project from each stamp set, and this month I actually succeeded - which means that I have some fun things to show you while you're waiting for your order to arrive.

Tea For Two has always been a beloved set in my Papertrey Ink collection, so when I found out there was going to be a companion set (Tea For Two Additions) as well as new coordinating dies, I did a little happy dance in my chair!

For this box, I used the Perfect Match Box Template (Melon Berry cardstock), knowing it would be a great size for tea bags. I wanted to keep it simple, so I stamped it with the new tea cups from Additions (Melon Berry and Smokey Shadow). The front of the box has the label cut from the new die - just love this!!!!

For the card, I used the new tea pot die, then stamped it with the outline stamp from the original set, as well as a sentiment from the new set. I placed that on Mat Stack 2 which I had stitched. The background is stamped with Turning a New Leaf, which just so happens to coordinate beautifully with Green Tea Leaves paper! Love it when it all comes together. ;)

I used a scrap of the Green Tea Leaves paper to line my square envelope. Since the advent of the nifty PTI envelope liner for the A2 envelopes, I am addicted (no this one isn't a die, but with a little bit of figuring, you can make one!).

So that's today's project in a nutshell! I hope you enjoy it. Have a great day! Be well.
