A Cup of Tea

I have been playing aorund with tea-bag folding lately. I am really pleased with how some of my efforts have come out. The idea was to try and have a modern and fresh approach to what is often considered a fairly old fashioned craft

The first card I have done was for the inkurables blog but I am so pleased with it I am thinking of including it in my next class at Stamp and Scrapbook Madness. I have used a Stamps by Judith Dragonfly stamp in brown ink with blue watercolours. I have continued the depth and texture elements of the tea bag folds by mounting a 2nd dragonfly over the top with the wings bent upwards in 3d. The blog challenge was to create something with wings and I just loved the simplicity of this dragonfly - and I love Judith's stamps too!!!

The next card is very very simple and uses a tulipfold. I think I might use this card for Mothers' Day!!

And on a slightly more traditional note I created this one using the standard medallion fold. This is actually its 2nd incarnation as the first one I did I gave to my grandparents for their 60th wedding anniverary!!! This one uses papers that are way out of my normal comfort zone and preference so I was pretty happy with the result.

And I have also created a little series of new baby cards featuring the Feathered Flourish set from Stampendous. This is the baby girl version of the card. I have also done a baby boy and a twin version. I guess this also fits the wings criteria of the inkurables blog so now I can't decide which one to enter!!!
