For my project, I made a tea box and card set - just in time fo Mother's Day!  I used the Spellbinders Nested Tea Cups die to cut out the small and medium tea cups and used my copics to color in the flowers and then distressed the edges with some Tea Dye ink to give it an old china feel.  I created the patterned paper using two of the stamp sets in the collection.

I used the Tattered Blossoms stamp and matching die to create the beautiful flower on the top of my box.  I sponged some Inka Gold Rose onto the flowers and added a little glitter to the tips of the petals for some added sparkle.

I have included the instructions on how to make this project below. You will also find a link to my tutorial on how to make the tea box.

I hope you will visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog to see what all the other Design Team members did with this gorgeous set.  You are sure to be inspired!
