Teabag holder

Hello, i hope you all had a great weekend.
I was able to work off quite a few cards – so i should have some time to get in my creative mood to make something for the next Magnolia ink (Sir Stampalot).
It looks kind of funny at the moment on my craft table.. in all those years iam blogging this never happened. So i have my summer papers still out to make cards with my new Magnolia Bon Voyage stamps, for Whiff of Joy’s new images i have Halloween and Winter/Christmas papers and for Motivet’s new stamp release i have Halloween papers out. If you you remember how tiny my nook is… go figure.. it is a mess :-)


Anyhow.. when i got this cute “Japanese Tilda” stamp i new i wanted to make a card and maybe something crafty with her. The tutorial over on Splitcost for a teabag holder was perfect. However.. that little cover took me way longer than i had anticipated. :-(


Stamps: Magnolia Bon Voyage collection Japanese Tilda
Papers: Magnolia papers though Sir Stampalot. The store carries the entire line of the beautiful papers
Sentiment: retired Stampin up set
Tools: Stampin up (label punch – for sentiment and to make the “tabs”), Nestabilities, Computer, Charms (Michaels), Stickles (Sir Stampalot)


 Thank you all have a great week

hugs Claudi

Hello Claudia! So original & pretty. Makes such a nice little gift. I can imagine putting all the pieces together must be time consuming. But the result is magnificent.Love your japanese Tilda, so beautifully colored. Especially her black hair... I am a fan of black hair, but still have problems blending this color. The little charms adds a precious detail to it all.
Gorgeous creation.

Claudia, das ist ja mal wieder so zauberhaft!
Die kleine Teekanne die dort baumelt, deine geniale Coloration (ich kämpfe gerade mit meinen neuen Copics und muss feststellen, das in dem 72er Set Farbzusammenstellung sind, die nicht so zusammen passen), es passt einfach alles super gut zusammen.
