Stamp Simply Ribbon Inspiration-Coffee, Tea, or Me?

Lemon Tea Set Package Contents
Welcome to Ribbon Inspiration Saturday, Coffee, Tea, or Me? Stamp Simply Style! For my creation today, I chose Tea!  I picked up this adorable tea bag holder a while ago and wanted to assemble some kind of gift with it.  So along the way, I bought Lemon Green Tea, and Lemonhead Candies!  Did you know if you drop a couple of the candies into your hot tea, they melt and give you a wonderful lemon flavor? Who knew? The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store now has a coffee/tea category in the store! Check it out HERE!

Packaged Lemon Tea Set
My first step after gathering contents, was to decide what container to use. A "go to" for me are crystal clear boxes, they are not only great for cards, but other goodies too! The A6 size I used is found HERE. The Lemonhead candies were placed inside of a mini crystal clear pillow container. Perfect! and they are found HERE. I cut my blue card stock to fit the box after I stamped it with VersaMark watermark inked images. Items are held onto the card stock base with Scor Tape before placing inside A6 clear box. With the extra stamped card stock, I created a filler that also helps hold the contents in place. I also used the same cup, tea bag, and steam stamps to create the package tag. Stamps are from Verve's Sip and Savor Clear Stamp Set found HERE. The tag image is colored with Copic Markers. White web ribbon is found HERE and the fantastic Seam Binding is HERE. I also placed a Webster's Pages Mini Sunday Picnic princess petal with the bow embellishment found HERE

I have this paper because my actual baby book is falling apart... guess they didn't think about acid free paper and such in 1945. I love the way you have used the papers for such a darling card! Such inspiration!

Graphic 45 Sweet Baby Girl Card
Good Morning!  I have a girly version of the card I made for Saturday's Ribbon Inspiration - Sweet Baby!  The designer paper is from the Little Darlings paper pad by Graphic 45. I added a larger bow using that WONDERFUL seam binding, The Stamp Simply RIBBON Store is now carrying! You cannot go wrong with the coordinating chipboard sets, that work so well with the papers!  The sweet little butterflies were cut from a sheet of the paper and I used the little girl images for the banner!  
Graphic 45 Sweet Baby Boy Card in Clear Box
I wanted to share how this 5" x 5" card fits perfectly in the 5.5" x 5.5" clear boxes Sharon carries in her store. These cards are for a set of twins, and I wanted to present the cards separately and the boxes accommodate the embellishments perfectly.  It packs more of a wow presentation too!  The Stamp Simply RIBBON Store carries three sizes of these clear boxes!  

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday! Take good care!

Pictures are worth a thousand words!

Our Easter weekend was full of precious memories! I took lots of pictures and wanted to share a few with you! Today I have random shots of our grandchildren! Here we have BFF cousins playing the church piano. They are consulting one another at this point! I have a series of them at the piano! Priceless! They are wearing the Easter dresses and coats Grandma bought them! (I made the silk bows in their hair!) 

Here is our oldest grand baby with his sister!  He is now three years old and is the best big brother! Especially when he wants to get his sister to play along with him! Here they are walking away from the group while waiting for the egg hunt to begin!

Come along sister, while I have a look back to see if they notice what we're doing!  LOVE this!  I cannot believe they are this big already.
I just cannot get enough of these precious Easter coats! This little one is getting ready for the egg hunt!

Here is sweet Emma checking out the altar flowers!  Her Easter coat is replaced with a sweet sweater because the dress is sleeveless! A better picture of the bow in her hair!  lol
Outside at church waiting for the eggs! Her Easter basket matches her outfit...that just happened!  Love it when a fashion statement all comes together! 

I know I have to stay on this side of the tape.  Momma said so.  
How did that happen? The tape moved! It's a good thing this boy is the cutest ever!  

Oh Grandma, enough pictures already!  How many more are you going to take? It's true, I took about 90 pictures!  I have more to share but will not bore you any longer on this day, maybe tomorrow! lol Thanks for visiting!  I hope your Easter was filled with the love that comes from our Risen Savior!
