keep calm and sip on...


Hello and Happy Friday Eve!

This card posted over on the Fresh Squeezed Stamps blog the other day and I wanted to share it over here:


I'm simply smitten with glassine envelopes...this one was perfect for the 'tag' I made:


I stamped the stacked cups & saucers with the help from my girl.

I generally stamp from the bottom and work up...but with this particular masking, you need to start at the top and work done....masking off the saucer.

Little touches like cork on the top of the 'tag' and the Timeless Twine Aqua Delight now transform the 'tag' into a bookmark!





Thanks so much for stopping by!

It's the little details, it totally is! The cork & twine are perfect, and I love how the glassine softens the bookmark/tag without obscuring it :)
