On Saturday, January 15, 2011, a winner will be chosen from those participants who visited all the blogs listed for today. (There will be four different winners, one winner for each day of the blog hop. You DO NOT have to comment every day. However, the more days you comment, the more chances you have to win!) If you miss a day, you can go back and comment on each day's blogs, as the winners will be chosen Saturday morning.

Today we are featuring the "Floral Tea" stamp set:
For this month's blog hop, I decided not to make any standard-sized cards.  The "Floral Tea" stamp set has so many uses.  Today, I decorated a tall bandage box by EK Success.  This tin is the perfect size for for tea bags.  It can be used to a gift for tea-lovers or even to keep on your desk at work to store tea bags.  I used patterned paper to wrap around the tin then I punched Bravo Burgundy paper with a Martha Stewart punch for the upper and lower borders.  I stamped the tea cup onto patterned paper then colored it in with Copic markers.  To complete the tin, I added the sentiment and half-pearls to simulate steam.
