DYSU #40 - Brown


It's Thursday again and time for the Do You Stack Up? challenge. We have a colour theme this week - BROWN so we want to see those brown papers, brown embellishments or just brown colouring - the choice is yours.


Our fabulous sponsors are:

 Copic Marker Scrapbooking - 6 Copic Ciao markers (North/South America) or Martha Stewart punch (rest of the world)

Crafty Emma's Store - £10 voucher (excluding postage)


Delicious Doodles - Winner's choice of 4 images

I have made something slightly different this week - a Teabag Gift Card. This gorgeous image is from Copic Marker Scrapbooking and was a delight to colour. 


When I began making this, I was sure I had a teabag in a sachet but yes, you guessed right - I had used it!!! Luckily I had some small vellum envelopes and so used one of those to hold the bag.  This was so easy to make and is such a lovely gift to give to a friend who is perhaps feeling under the weather and needing a quick pick me up. I used a piece of card 4" x 12", scored at 4" and 8", cut the far right panel at a diagonal and folded this in to make the pocket - so simple :0)  I attached the ribbon before the image so that it ties around the whole card.

Recipe:
Medium - Promarkers and Memento Ink in Rich Cocoa for the distressing
Floral Paper, Heart Sticker and Rose Circle- HOTP Paper Pizzaz Girls to Women pad
Spotty Paper - Daisy & Dandelion A5 Collection
Cardstock & Ribbon - stash
Sentiment - freebie

I hope you will pop over to the DYSU blog and give a lovely warm welcome to our two new DT members and hopefully get inspired by all the gorgeous creations to join us for this week's challenge.

That's all from me for now. I shall be back this afternoon with my DT card for Digi Doodle Shop Challenges so hope you will come back and take a look.
Hugs
Denise xx

Denise, as a bit of a tea fanatic (at least by North American standards), I LOVE your project! The front is beautiful with the lovely polka-dot DP, and that GORGEOUS tea pot image...but, this inside is AMAZING! LOVE this idea of creating a pocket to hold a tea bag and the inside is JUST as FABULOUS as the front! Simply Brilliant!
