T For TSFT Reveal & Another Tag Tuesday Tag

"Let my mouth be filled with thy praise and with thy honor all the day." Ps. 71:8

The weeks are sure flying by, even when we are not going much because of Covid.  Today is our great reveal of our ATC swap that we did to celebrate the 7th anniversary of Elizabeth & Bleubeard's Tea Stands For Tuesday over at Altered Book Lover!

So without further ado, here is the ATC and goodies from Karen.  Somehow she knew one of my favorite color combos is turquoise and brown!  I still remember a favorite dress in those colors, which I wore to one of my wedding showers.  Love the cute little tea charm, too. 

 Isn't it neat how she put it inside a card, oh, yes a card, too!  She used washi tape.  I need to start using some of that drawer full on washi tape.  What a good idea.  I have noticed people are using it to seal their envelopes, too, now instead of licking them, as she did. And she made the cutest  tiny envelope to put in this stash of canceled stamps to use on future projects!  

Her card below and a close up of her darling mini envelope and also so you can see the inside.

A big thank you to Karen.

Now a surprise from our hostess!

Thank you Elizabeth, Bleubeard and Squiggles for this wonderful memento of our 7th anniversary and the goodies.  You are the best hostesss!  Thanks for all your work to make our tea parties so enjoyable for 7 years!

I think there are a few items in above, tea charm and Bleubeard in teacup for my TSFT reference!

I did do another tag for Tag Tuesday sea theme that I would like to share.

Again, I was playing with my Tim Holtz Distress inks and TH Embossing Glaze.  Below, I stamped on a pre done tag,  from many years ago.  I used images from SU! and the sentiment is from Our Daily Bread.  I put the mat gel through the stencil.  Then I sprinkled the embossing glaze (two colors) on the paste, then heat embossed.  I watched a you tube demonstrating how to do this.  I am just loving these embossing glazes!

I had to edit to show the two ATCs I made for the 7th anniversary of TSFT!

I made them playing with my Tim Holtz Embossing Glazes.  I stamped with SU! stamps, then dabbed with VersaMark ink, then  applied the different glazes then heat embossed.  One for Eileen and one for our hostess.  I bet you can tell which one went to our hostess!   I hope they liked them! 

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I enjoy sharing with you and then visiting some of you to see what you are doing.  Thank you Tag Tuesday for the challenge!  Happy T Day!  Have a great week!

  7. A perfect Tag for my theme over at Tag Tuesday..Thank you so much for playing along x

  8. Hi! I'm glad you liked your ATC and card etc. Did you notice we used the same teacup too?! What were the chances of that?! how funny ~ Your tag is wonderful, I love that stamp set too. Happy T day!

  9. I have this theory about my internet. It knows exactly when it's Monday at 4 pm, so it immediately goes offline. ATT said they'd send someone Tuesday morning between 8 and noon. Looks like they did, since I'm now online.

    You got an amazing ATC from Karen. I also love the postage stamps she sent you, too. Lots of great goodies and a beautiful card, too. She went all out, didn't she?

    Glad you got the goodies and my ATC. Just a small token of my appreciation.

    That's a beautiful tag you created. I really LOVE that stencil. I also love the various stamps you used, too. It's a beauty and I'm glad you share your tools and supplies you use.

    I LOVE my ATC, Sharon. I swear that cat reminds me of Squiggles. Thank you again. I think the glaze shows up better in your photo than mine.

    Thanks for sharing your tag, your ATCs and your gifts from Karen for T this Tuesday, dear friend.

  10. Fabulous goodies from Karen and from Elizabeth too! I love the tag you made! Great little anchor charm!
