Welcome to the Pals’ April  Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we love to put our ”Families First”! Our Design Team created beautiful projects to inspire you. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.  Family does come first in my life! I always love making cards for my family and love helping others to make them for their families as well. Tea Together as well as Time for Tea are great stamp sets to have in my stash for my tea loving family and friends. Tomorrow I have a great card for my coffee loving family and friends, so I hope you will be back to see that one as well.


Mother's Day Card and Gift Box Featuring Time for Tea and Tea Together Stamp Sets by Stampin' Up!

My first project is a card with a gift box made from the Copper Tea Tins. These tins are absolutely wonderful and great for gifts. I decided to make something for Mother’s Day since it is right around the corner. The Tea Together stamp set is just perfect, don’t you think? The tea tins were so much fun to decorate! I really don’t know why it took me so long to get to them.

My Secrets to Making This Mother’s Day Project

Mother’s Day Card

This A6 card has a Mint Macaron card base, which has copper foil and Tea Room DSP layers. Then, I cut and adhered Delightfully Detailed Laser-cut DSP and a frame made with the Rectangle Stitched framelits before adhering the teapot and tea cut after being colored with the Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends. Flowers were stamped and colored before being cut out and adhered to the card. Lastly, the sentiment was stamped and cut with Stitched Shapes circle framelit, then popped up onto Whisper White cardstock cut from the framelit in Spot of Tea framelits. The framelit was threaded with Tea Room ribbon and tied into a bow before adhering to the card.

Copper Tea Tin Gift Box

  • Tea Room DSP was cut to 3″x12″ and adhered to the Tin with adhesive.
  • I applied the vinyl stickers to the top edge to keep the lid from hurting anything.
  • The ribbons were wrapped and adhered with the edges in the front so they would be covered by the label.
  • The label was heat embossed with copper embossing powder, then the entire piece of cardstock was covered with VersaMark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
  • The tea cup was stamped with Calypso Coral ink, then also heat embossed entirely with clear embossing powder before being cut with the framelit.
  • Flower and leave stamps were colored with Stampin Blends then cut with coordinating framelits.

Lid: DSP was cut and corners rounded with the Detailed Trio Punch. The sentiment was heat embossed with copper embossing powder, then cut with the Spot of Tea framelit. It was layered onto Copper Foil that was cut with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch. Vinyl stickers were added to the sentiment and the edges.
