Layers of Color ~ Tea Party Blog Hop

Welcome to Layers of Color Tea Party Blog Hop!

This blog hop starts at Layers of Color blog. If you came from Janice's blog, you are in the right place, if not, please start at the beginning to get the most out of this fun blog hop!
Layers of Color design team is having this blog hop in celebration of the release of Spellbinders newest die templates, Decorative Dress Forms, (designed by Nina Brackett and Laura Campbell) and Nested Tea Cups, (designed by Laura Campbell)! Layers of Color will be offering both these new dies February 1, 2012, or you can purchase them now through Crafters Home participating stores.
Welcome! Come on in and join us for a spot of tea and enjoy these tasty treats for the eyes!

My mother, daughter and I share a love of a hot cup of tea...and must say my daughter has learned from her grandma perfectly!  She makes the best cup of tea.  My current favorite is a London Fog, nothing better at the end of a long day.  I made a card using Dotted Dahlias and the Nested Tea Cups to create a card and altered a Twinings Earl Grey tin cansister.  Here is a card I made:
And the inside: 

The sentiment is from Teacup Blessings.
It just seemed right to have a matching tin and would make a great little gift for a tea.

Thank you for spending this lovely time together with us today! What a joy to be here with you! Please help yourself to these lovely tea-inspired FREE TEMPLATES exclusively from Layers of Color!...
Paper Tea Cup and Saucer, designed by Laura Kirste Campbell

Layers of Color has wonderful tea-inspired art stamps to go with your tea cup projects! You may need sweet sentiments and verses, a spoonful of honey with Teacup Blessings, and of course some flowers, lace doilies to decorate the table! We'd love to see what you do with these unique templates and art stamps! Please share your delicious creations on Layers of Color Facebook page!
Come on friends, let's continue hopping to all the talented designer blogs to see what they have brewed up for us!...

Beautiful cards, I really like your first one, with the different layers of papers/designs. Green is my fav color, so this whole set is very appealing to me. Like the die you used to showcase your sentiments, fits right in with everything else. Smart idea to do a tin for sharing as well. Thanks for sharing!

Jennie, this is so pretty. So clever of you to create that cup window. I might have to copy that one :).

Jennie these are adorable cards - I love the way you have emphasized the cups by leaving the borders white - they really stand out on outstanding cards.
Blessings
