Also on the desk is some scrap paper I'm breaking down into smaller pieces, Papertrey Ink's Tea for Two stamp set, and a piece of the strip stitch die cut that I wove tiny strips of paper through.
card. The tea pot felt pin is cut with the die for the aforementioned stamp set.

My card for Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday #165. Using one of my favorite stamp sets (Funky Florals) I used Betsy Veldman's watercolor technique stamping the large flower in Simply Chartreuse and Ocean Tides. When everything had dried, I stamped the sentiment in black and the flower centers in Classic Kraft.
This month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop challenge is to create something using Melon Berry and Aqua Mist.
A2 base: Melon Berry cardstock
sentiment: Tea for Two
Strip Stitch die
Aqua Mist cardstock
Melon Berry Pattern Paper scrap cut into thin strips (cut end at an angle to make a "needle")
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.
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.

P.S. I should add I had originally finished this about 2 years ago, but added to it about a year ago, and now again. Hence the "think" I've finished lol.

I've been spinning a lot of yarn/thread with spindles mostly, but also a turn or three with my wheels. Dabbled with paper, and knit hats and scarves for Christmas presents (thank you Craftsy.com for your free short row knitting class) to the point I could watch my beloved Korean Dramas whilst knitting. And it''s so nice to see the backside of winter.
In the forefront is my first experiment with my new Papertrey Ink Strip Stitch die which turns cardstock into perforated paper suitable for cross-stitch. I didn't put the metal shim under it, so some of the dots didn't come out automatically. I've been experimenting with selective hole punching.
So if you'd like so see more crafty spaces, or join in the fun, head over to Julia's Stamping Ground : ).
