May Blog Waltz with Waltzingmouse Stamps

I'm happy I can finally join in for Claire's blog waltz this time! Timing was just not right till now, but I got my card and project done with plenty of time to spare. I love WM stamps, the designs are just incredible, and get better and better with each new release!

When I first saw this tea set I have never made a decision to buy something quite as fast, lol! Although I have a few tea sets already, I had to have it! It's nostalgic charm just cooed sweetly "Buy me Buy me..."
This is what I came up with. A pretty little easel card, one of my new fave cards to make, and the fantastic rubber band box from WMS templates. This little box is perfect for a couple of tea bags to accompany the card. I love it, I can see using it for all sorts of little gifts. AND, it's super simple to put together.
Since I'm so infatuated with October Afternoon's Thrift Shop paper collection lately, I paper pieced the little tea pot and cup for the card. Except for some Copic shading around the pot and cup, there is no coloring.

Now I'm off to browse some of the other blog participants, I'm prepared to be dazzled! Thanks for waltzing by....

Stamps: Waltzingmouse
Ink: Memento, Distress, Perfect Match
Paper: Core'dinations, Bazzill, October Afternoon
Accessories: Fiskars Apron Lace punch, gingham taffeta ribbon, Scor Pal
