SOS: Warm and fuzzy...

Warm and fuzzy is the current challenge at Shopping Our Stash!

We are asking you to include something yielding warmth: a warm hat, a cup of cocoa, a fireplace...

Look through your stash and see what could bring warmth!  (In my neck of the woods, I'm "feeling" this challenge-- it snowed non-stop all Saturday... brrrr!)

I made a little "get well" tea pack... tea reminds you of warmth, doesn't it?:

Supplies and notes:
  • Glassine bag is actually from old catalog cards
  • The tag is a part of an old catalog card, cut with a seldom-used blade on my paper cutter and then coated with a thin layer of gesso, as I wanted to mute the bold text but not hide it completely.
  • Broken China and Shabby Shutters DI daubed through a Hero Arts stencil and used to edge the tag
  • The sentiment was stamped with an old alphabet set from Target years ago, inked with Vintage Photo mixed media ink
  • The greenery was the last of the diecut pieces on my desktop from weeks ago.  I coated it with Distress Collage Medium in Matte and covered it with Antique  Linen Distress Glitter
  • The dictionary definition was cut from an old dictionary used for crafts.  I adhered it with Distress Collage Medium also.
  • The twine is pretty new... I got it from The Dollar Tree along with a coral color and a pale yellow!  Score!
  • In the packet, I also included some sequins I've had for years... they are mint, white, and gold.  

See you over at Shopping Our Stash!  I always love to see what people create from their neglected stashed items!
