Paper Sweeties February Release Sneak Peeks

Welcome to the Paper Sweeties Sneek Peeks!
Paper Sweeties is releasing 2 new stamp sets and 1 fabulous teapot die this month.
My 1st project features the new teapot die, which coordinates with PS's Tea for Two stamp set!
This is such a versatile die and can be used for cards, tags and sweet invitations.

Inspiration came from vintage English chintz teapots.
Something about drinking tea from one of these delicate beauties that enhances each sip!

Pink background diamond pattern from PS's borders.
Sentiment from PS Tea for Two.

Love this paper so much, I did another card/invite using the paper but covering the surface with clear embossing powder several times, creating a porcelain like surface.

A bit hard to capture the sheen, much shinier in real life!

The darling tag on top is from another of this month's release. I just used it as a tag with a sentiment from the stamp set: It's Tea Time, and a teacup from: I'm Having a Tea Party.

This card's a trifold.
A peek on the inside.

Embossed in blush and white.
Love this sweet invite to tea from the Tea for Two stamp set!

Card opens and closes with a triple string tie.

Remember to come back tomorrow for more peeks as Paper Sweeties
 counts down to their release on the 15th!
And be sure to check out what 'peeks'  the other designers have for you!
