T Stands for Teacup (Giant) and Typewriter and a little bit of a Tidy Up.

After I spilled a bowl of ramen in my lap I bought a giant teacup for soup and ramen. The handle makes a world of difference : D.  I found Shin ramen at Walmart of all places, It's my favorite, but I only put in 1/4 - 1/3 of the flavor packet because Korean food is SPICEy. The video below is where I learned different things to put in ramen.

Really I was all judgy about the last ingredient. But I had to admit it's the magical component to a filling meal : ).

I found a Tim Holtz Vintage Typewriter die for $5 and used the packaging to make a stencil and a mask. I'm a bit of a typewriter freak, at one point I had 17. I believe I'm down to 7 now.

The Distress Paints and Stains are all readily identifiable thanks to a 5/8" circle punch and some labels I picked up at the dollar store. Just dab, (let dry) punch and adhere. The inkpads are ALL done too : D.

Make It Monday #200: Layering Cover Plate Die Cuts

This week's Make It Monday is all about layering cover plate die cuts. I used the Modern Cross Quilt cover plate cut once with PTI packing tissue, cut again with Autumn Rose cardstock and both are layered over a gold foil mat. The sentiment is from Quilter's Sampler Sentiments stamped on a strip of organza ribbon.
