Whimsy Stamps Release Blog Hop!

Hi everyone and welcome to the Clearly Whimsy Stamps June Release BLOG HOP!  I have had such a great time being a Guest Designer this release with Whimsy Stamps




All 6 new clear stamp sets AND 6 coordinating die/die sets are now available to buy from the Whimsy Stamps store and the Design Team and Guest Design Team are celebrating the release with a GRAND BLOG HOP!

The hop starts today and ends on Sunday, June 30th at midnight EDT.

If you would like to hop along with us today, please CLICK HERE to start the hop at the Whimsy Stamps blog.  You'll find the entire order at the bottom of this post!

Today the design team is sharing the final set of stamps and dies from this release - TIME FOR TEA & TIME FOR TEA ADDITIONS - which you've been seeing on my blog the past few days.

 

 

Today, my inspiration is based on my experience.  I have been the Chairperson of our Women's Ministry at our church  for quite a few years now and I'm finally taking a break to focus on other things.  But my mind is still always looking for and thinking of cute themes to work with women's events.  This tea set is the perfect item to use for a women's event (or just as a gift to someone special too)!

Tea Cup Set 1.2

Here is the set I created.  Can you just image a cute little teacup at each place setting as the women come in to your event?  

Tea Cup Set Cup 1.1

The Time for Tea set makes it easy to create your own custom tea bag decorations!  And, it's quick & easy too!  I found this pretty tea cup at a thrift store years ago, so you can get them fairly inexpensively too!  I hand cut my frame, but to speed things up even more there is a coordinating die to match that frame available!

Tea Cup Set Bag Side 1.1

And as a favor as the ladies head out the door, why not decorate a cute little glassine bag that is filled with flavored tea?  What woman doesn't enjoy a little parting gift?  For this bag I used the tiny teacup stamp from the Time for Tea set and the fun little sentiment from the same set.  These bags would also be fun to fill with instant tea too for those who don't like hot tea. 

I'll let you in on a little secret!  My favorite drink right now is instant tea.  I mix one package of Crystal Light Peach Tea with one package of Crystal Light Raspberry Green Tea together.  It is SO good and refreshing!  Give it a try and let me know what you think!


Are you up for some prizes?  One lucky hopper will win 2 stamp sets and 1 die set from the Time For Tea line.  To enter the drawing, simply leave a comment at EVERY stop along the hop!

  12. Yes, this set is perfect for that! We hosted a ladies tea at our church where we (those who set it up) set up our tables using all vintage pieces with beautiful centerpieces. It was quite fun. This set would have been perfect for little favors like your little gift bag. So sweet!
