May 2014 Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

This month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop challenge is to create something using Melon Berry and Aqua Mist.

Card:
A2 base: Melon Berry cardstock
sentiment: Tea for Two 

embellishment:
Strip Stitch die
Aqua Mist cardstock
Melon Berry Pattern Paper scrap cut into thin strips (cut end at an angle to make a "needle")

pin holder:
Stamper's Select White cardstock
White Organza ribbon
Half & Half single die with point
inexpensive seed beads with aurora borealis finish
ribbon sewn on with beads (holes punched with a paper piercer and a Tim Holtz ruler.. Sew up from the bottom, pick up a bead and then sew back through the same hole in cardstock.

Pin:
Tea for Two teapot die
top and bottom layers are Papertrey Ink Melon Berry felt.
two middle layers are craft felt I had on hand (almost an Aqua Mist)
inexpensive seed beads with aurora borealis finish.
nymo beading thread and bead needle. Stitch beads on top layer to create a polka dot effect. Sew pin clasp (or safety pin) on back of the bottom layer. When sewing the four layers together, pick up a bead for each stitch.
