How can we not love Splitcoaststampers??? I really love swaps. Who does not love to get something special in the mail. So here was a swap to do 25 Days of Christmas. Can you believe all of the ladies in 3 groups made 25 items for 25 ladies. WOW! and fun.
So I thought and thought what to make. I took a class to make some wonderful Christmas Tags and these are a product of ideas from that class. I. kind of lost some of the tags so I was not sure what some were. But the poinsetta and tree were the newest ones. My poinsetta is a cut from a Cricut Cartridge. It is so pretty and I thought the best.
My day was the 21st so I made a tag and put the number on it. I then added the tags to a glassine bag. See the bottom picture.
My Best Friend/Adopted Sis is having a Church Tea and needed some tea cups. I made 30 for her daughter in laws bridal shower and she asked me for these for the tea. How could I not say no and since I really needed something new to do.
You always want things to be perfect for that someone special. Right???
Well I found the perfect paper, since the theme was Holly and Poinsetta's, how is this not great? I ran the flower under an embossing folder and then used a brad from Stampin Up.
The tea cup is from My Time Made Easy. She has alot of templates for sale and they are only $5.00. She even has a Tea Pot.
I did add a black scallop botton square. I did sponge the cups and bottom with black ink. This gave it a vintage look.
