Stamperia Alice Eileen Hull Teacup Project Share
Hello, Friends! Happy Friday! I thought I would round out the week by sharing this Stamperia Alice Eileen Hull Teacup project with you all. This was a special order in my Etsy shop, and it turned out so cute, I had to take photos so I would remember it.
The cup base is created from mat board using Eileen Hull’s Sizzix Teacup Die. You may remember these Christmas teacups that I shared earlier this year. Since I am a tea lover, it’s only natural that I would have this die in my stash. And the die is a perfect match for my favorite Stamperia Alice collection.
Stamperia Alice Eileen Hull Teacup: Lost in the Details
I had such fun building this miniature scene on the teacup base. All the teacup edges are embossed with Stampendous Frantage Aged Gold Embossing Powder. The little ceramic mushroom and the flowers are both Stamperia products. And the itty bitty teacup is one I picked up from a friend in an online sale. Isn’t it darling? Sherry/Ivory Plaid ribbon seemed like the perfect match for the Alice papers I used.
Sometimes I really get lost in the details of a project like this. For instance, look at this tea tag. It cracks me up with the sweet teapot charm and spoon. I fussy cut those tiny letters from one of the collage pages in the collection.
Stamperia Alice Eileen Hull Teacup: What’s Inside?
I stuffed the teacup with everything one might need to host a tea party for one. Some imported British Digestive Biscuits are wrapped in designer paper and topped with a fussy cut quote and flower. A decorated honey stick will go perfectly with the English Breakfast teabag that is attached to the back of the Queen of Hearts Tag. And one must have a vintage silver plate spoon to stir one’s tea, don’t you agree? Then a bit of chocolate for the perfect finish.
Designing custom orders like this one gives me such joy. This is a perfect little gift…even if the recipient is yourself. I’d love to make you one if you feel the need for tea time with Alice. You can place a custom order request in my Etsy shop, and I’ll put you on the list.
Have a lovely weekend!
