Sweet Tidings Sponsor Giveaway: Tea and Ceremony



 



This week's sponsor giveaway is from ETSY shop  Tea and Ceremony. Based in Manchester UK, Tea and Ceremony  offers delightful  retro Scandinavian folk inspired paper and stationery gifts  as well as holiday themed paper cut cards.  The creative gift giver would love the sweet assortment of products featured in the shop such as folksy and papercut greeting cards, handcrafted notebooks and gift tags. Tea and Ceremony paper products can also be found on Welcome Home. The catchy name of Tea and Ceremony is inspired by the song "Ceremony" by New Order and "Tea" for the shop being quintessentially British. 

Sandra, the creative mind behind the shop has always been an artistic and  crafty gal, having had studied art through school and has gained a lot of formal experience in oil painting, 3D design, woodwork, photography, pottery, bookbinding, screen printing, textiles, etching, block printing and graphic design just to name a few. Sandra has  this to say about her shop and her handmade items:


I’ve managed to whittle myself down to just two creative personalitieswith regards to my Etsy shop – folk inspired illustration and paper cutpieces. I’ve always liked retro Scandinavian folk prints and havestruggled to create designs in a style that both incorporates this butis also my own, something that I am just learning to do now.
I havealways had a strange fascination for silhouettes, pop-up books andpaper cutting so came up with some 3D cards that brought these thingstogether. I actually designed and made the Winter Wonderland cards lastyear and they were popular but I couldn’t keep up with demand due tothe time consuming method of making the cards. This year I have a moreefficient method to make these cards and was featured in one of Etsy’sStorque articles with one of the designs. I have already sold a goodfew of these in October and they are currently definitely my mostpopular item.
