Bundled with the June issue of Craft Stamper magazine came a free Toby Tumble acrylic stamp, which was designed especially for the magazine by Cuddly Buddly.  There is also a two page spread with gorgeous examples by Kim McFarlane the graphic designer who runs Cuddly Buddly.  Unfortunately the stamp was not included free for US readers, however you can get the digi from the Cuddly Buddly website here.

This image is perfect for a tea bag card, a little gift card that you can tuck tea bags into for every day gifts, hostess favours, teachers gifts etc.  While I love making elaborate, detailed, labour intensive projects, I also like to have on hand a range of projects I can whip up in an emergency and still feel good about the gift I am giving.  This is one of those projects :o)

The tutorial for the card can be found here on Split Coast Stampers.
