New Digi Release Day! Tea-Riffic!!!

Hello, and Happy Monday to all of my Tea-Riffic friends!
And a very Happy Birthday wish to my bestest ever stampy friend, Shirley!
(The color of her birthday wish has something to do with her birthday gift...)


My goodness, where has August gone? It's already half over.....


Which means....


It's New Digi Release Day at Clear Dollar Stamps!


Wait until you see the fabulous Digi Images that Lori has for you this month over at CDS!!!
You are going to want every set - no kidding :)


The set that I chose to work with today is Tea-Riffic.
I've created a gift box, with a set of four cards.
You know me and my Kraft, so the box and card bases are all Kraft.
Hope that you enjoy the variety of colors and layouts.
This set comes with OODLES of images and sentiments, AND...there is a matching paper pack! All of the DP on my cards is from the matching paper pack!

For this card, I cut a Dollar Store doily in half, and sponged with Spun Sugar Tim Holtz Distress Ink. Everything's up on dimensional squares for depth.

Card #2

Hey sugar, it's Card #3!
Look at those darling sugar cubes!

Isn't this lilac paper the softest and prettiest? Bring on the tea party!


Here is the box from the top...


And again from the side, showing the cute little lilac ball fringe that I found at Hobby Lobby...

If you have a friend, or a nice neighbor that is a tea drinker, just think of the possibilities! Christmas will be here before you know it...or how about those craft fairs???


Hope this set makes you smile - I certainly enjoyed working with these beautiful PRE-COLORED images and papers! Easy, peasy! Hurry on over to Clear Dollar Stamps to check out all of the wonderful new releases, and the see the beautiful creations of the Design Team!!!


Hugs, and blessings,
Patti J.


Food for thought:
How much of our unhappiness is due to comparing ourselves with others?

Oh my goodness what a fantastic set you have made, Patti! The box is so darling, and each of the cards is beautifully made. Whoever receives this lovely gift is going to be so thrilled!

WOW!!! I love it and you were so clever to fold the doily in half to create an elegant table cloth that is just perfect for the image. I'm going to have to remember to lift this idea and use it with LOC tea cup! THank you for inspiring me!!
