My March cards for the swap.

Time to start the March card swap.  Finally it is March and the snow is melting a bit.  It is still ice underneath but it is coming along.  The birds are chirping.  Spring is on its way.  Yipee!!
Now onto the March swap cards.  This batch is mine.  I will post Kim's next week.

The Spellbinder die cut Kim sent me last month is on the front of this tea cup.  I wanted to do something different then a card using the die cut.  This is what I came up with. 
I bought the pattern for the tea cup box at the Silhouette store.
Tea cup box is by Lori Whitlock, design id #53794.
Heart die cut is Spellbinders swirled heart.
Patterned paper is by MME Honey.

I put this tag inside the tea cup box along with a few bags of Red Rose tea.  What's a tea cup without some tea right?  The sentiment stamped on the tag is the one Kim sent last month with the heart die cut.  I stamped it on the bottom part of the tag.  Added some bling I got at Michaels in their dollar bin.  I also used the MME Honey pattern paper.

This little tag I made is just like the one I put in the tea cup except I added some different elements.  First off I want to say I learned how to make this tag and bow watching a you tube video by Live Love Scrap.  There may be other video's out there showing how to do the same thing but Live Love Scrap is the one I watched to make this.
I used Webster's pages pattern paper.
Stampin Up envelope punch board
Freckled Fawn paper clip
The ticket is from Making Memories
The Hello stamp is from Bo Bunny
The bling in the center of the bow is from Queen & Co. Twinkle goose bump.

Of course I had to tie everything together by making a card with a tea pot on it.
The teapot cutting pattern is from Kadoodle bug designs.
Teapot art work is by Melissa Deuss.
Embossing background is Sizzix Hero Arts textured impressions Dot Swirl
(Love this folder)
Sentiment was just printed off the computer not a stamp.
Flowers on the teapot are made using a small EK flower punch.
Small pearl flower centers are from The Paper Studio.
Now on to the goodies I sent them.

I put this cut little teacup stamp inside the tea cup with the tea and tag.

The sun is shining here today.  I wish you all a great day.
Happy Crafting!
