A Tea Tray Gift set

Good Morning Everyone!!! Happy 9-9-09!

Today I am so excited to be part of the Verve Project Parade where the theme is Hostess Gifts! A HUGE thank you to Shannan Tuebner for all her help this morning with getting pictures up (you are a life saver and you totally ROCK chica!) For my project today, I decided to use one of my fave sets - I love the Cup of Life Verve stamp set and so created a little Tea Tray full little Tea Goodies. This tray has Tea Leaves in a little tin can ( I love tin cans!), tea cup with strainer for drinking tea at home, a travel mug French press for drinking tea on the go and a set of notecards (I was going to include some cookies - but I ate all of those! lol!) . Here is a picture of the Tea Tray Gift Set:

Here is a picture of the notecard set - it comes with 5 cards that say "Just for You" with a matching envelopes. I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch #103 for the card:


I also used a tag punch to create little tags for the French Press, cup and tea tin: It was so fun and easy and most of all made something very simple feel yummy :) Here are some pictures of the tags that I created:


The same tag goes for the cup. And lastly - one of my fave things to do is to take some unfinished wood and paint and stamp on it. After finishing - you just add a clear lacquer (I chose a gloss finish) and it protects the wood. Here is a picture of the tea tray - I painted it goosefeather, burnt umber and azul blue and then used the Bountiful backgounds polkadots, the sentiment from Delightful and Delicious and the teacups from a Cup of Life to create this little tray:

Project Details:
Ink: Adirondack Expresso, Versa Mark, Clear EP, Memento brilliance copper ink
Paper: Prisma cardstock, brown paper from stash
Stamps: Bountiful backgounds polkadots, the sentiment from Delightful and Delicious and the teacups from a Cup of Life
Accessories: unfinished wood tray and clear gloss lacquer, spellbinders, corner rounder, ribbon (offray), button from stash, Kaiser Blue rhinestones, EK success punch, tag punch from CM liquid pearls

A huge thank you to Julee for this amazing honor to be part of Verve! I am still pinching myself!!! I hope you have been enjoying all the lovely projects!!! And not to worry, there are more projects coming in the next days and we would love to see what amazing projects you are creating! To play along just make a project or card that shows us your take on the Happiness for Hostesses theme. Verve stamps are not required, but if you've got 'em, we would love to see 'em!! Just add a link to your creation to the Mr. Linky in Day One's POST before 9PM Mountain September 12th. Two lucky participants will win a stamp set of their choice from the Verve Store. We've also hidden another $25 gift certificate somewhere along the parade for a random commenter - so if you like what you see, be sure to give a little shout out in the comments of each post!!!

Have a wonderful, delightful and delicious day!

Big hugs!
Sankari :)
