Tea Party and a cool new Embossing Folder!

I love all things to do with tea parties!  I think I'm making up for when I was a little girl.  All I wanted to do was be a boy lol!  I wanted to play with 'boy toys' having nothing to do with dolls or dresses.  Well, you'll still find me in pants most of the time, but instead of my favorite color being blue, I adore pink!  I also love tea cups, teapots and pretty, frilly things : )

Sylvia Zet's newest release, New Adventures of Loli and Poppy is wonderful with oh so adorable images!!!  This is one of my faves in this collection : )  Here's
Daphne's Tea Party.

Of course I had to use pink!!!  She's colored with copics, which is no surprise...  Here's what I used:  Hair - E35 E34 YR21 YR20; Skin - E11 E00 E000; Clothes/Furniture - R39 R85 R83 R81/E57 E55 E43 E50 C4 ; Teapot n Cups - R83 R81 R11 R000; Kitty - C9 C5 C4 C3 C2 C1.

A few Opal Paper Pen pearls in the corners which tie in the pearl heart brad on the tag : )  I've had this gorgeous flower for quite some time and I decided that I could part with it (I still have two left in the package which you'll have to pry out of my hands lol!).  They are both lacey and of course pink!!!

Here you can see the dimension.  I used dimensionals to pop up the image layer.  I dug out my QuicKutz dies and squeeze punch to create the tag.  The sentiment is from My Time Made Easy.

OK... here's the cool new embossing folder part - really!!!  It's Brocade by Craft Concepts.  I started with a 2 inch strip of white cardstock.  This embossing folder has an opening in the 'fold' which is 2" wide and fits a strip of cs in.  I was able to make a continuous embossed strip of 11.5" which I trimmed to fit.  After embossing, I used an MS punch on both sides to make it more girlie : )  I'll try to get photos to show you in detail soon - just in case my description doesn't help hee hee!

A final shot which shows a little of the shiny dp which is Sweet Nothings (look at the top) and all the shiny and sparkly areas - love that shine and bling!

Thanks for stopping by!!!  I hope to visit with you soon ♥

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul~
