Tangerine Tea Time

DSCF4122

I am so sad....I cut into my last piece of Tangerine Tango today.  I know I can get more....but don't know if I can justify it when it will be gone next month!  Anyway, I needed a quick little gift for a customer this morning, and the Project Tuesday challenge interested me, so I thought I would give it a try.

The challenge was to make a peek-a-boo treat holder; directions are here.  This is another Papertrey set that Shawn lent me and I thought it would be cute made into a teabag holder.  It's called Tea for Two!!!  So very cute.  I got a K&Co "recycled" pad yesterday (on sale!!) in these wonderful summery citrus colors, so that drove my color selection.  I inked the teapot in Apricot Appeal, then used a dauber to add some shading around the edges with Tangerine Tango BEFORE I stamped it.  I then stamped it on WW and stamped the outline in Really Rust....I think I am in love with this set!!!  I just adore how it turned out!  Anyway, I added a little MS scallop and popped up the teapot on dimensionals.

You get the picture!  I tied it all up with pretty melon-colored twill from Taylored Expressions!  Very easy, fun project!  Thanks for visiting today!

What a great little holder. I can't believe you cut up your last piece of TT. Can you say the same for Pacific Point?

This is so pretty done in that Tango color! I love how it holds the tea bag! What a thoughtful way to pass the tea:)

How clever of you to color Apricot Appeal with Tango Tangerine. I love that orange and you made me realize that I don't use it as much as I should. Thanks for the reminder and thanks for sharing your lovely card!! It's yummy colors and tea -- what more can a girl ask for?!

Oh! This is so CUTE!! I love this set, too, and think I may have to "spring" for it. That's really hard for me to buy non-SU! stamps, but this one is adorable. Good for you to use up your Tangerine Tango, too! That's on my "to do" list - and not to reorder. I know we'll love the new In Colors, too! Thanks for sharing this little treat - it is lovely :-)

How cute and what a great project! I love the way that color really pops and orange spice tea is my favorite, so perfect!
