Teapot Tuesday 23

If you've been following along with the Teapot Tuesday challenges that I have been doing you will know that I skipped last week. Not because I wanted to, mind you. Last week just got to be too hectic. Sorry Cindy that I missed last week's tea party. If you want to see the teapot from last week please click here. It's a cute little Santa teapot and Cindy's card is gorgeous.

This week she featured another Christmas/winter teapot - this lovely tree pot (ha!). You just have to see the fabulous card that she made so do make sure to visit her glob. She is such a paper genius!!!

I had been wanting to show off (yes I said it!) my Fabulous Flower Christmas Tree Ornament and this worked out almost perfectly. I think it resembles the top of the pot lid - what do you think? The colors are very subtle as I used VersaMark ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and then got out my pastels and just dabbed a little Creamy Caramel on the petal edges. Please believe me when I say that it truly is prettier IRL!

The tree is made very similarly to my Fabulous Flower Angel which I posted here. The difference in this tree is that I used all four of the pattern pieces and instead of threading the cord through all the layers, I only threaded the cord through the topmost layer and used a toothpick for the trunk. Once I had the layers on the trunk (toothpick), I used a little Crystal Effects on the underside of each to keep the layers in place. If I were to do the tree in green - which I will in the next couple of days, I will use ink on the toothpick in either brown or green.

So once, again I thank Cindy for having such a fun tea party and letting me play.


  1. Wow, seeing it with the tree pot (good one!, Giggle) is awesome. I looks fabulous!! I love it! Thank you so much for posting your links and for the kind words. All I can say is *right back at ya!*. You are such a creative soul!

    The decorations were so fun, so festive and had you not come it would not have felt like Christmas. Love your Tree Pot!

  2. I forgot to say how cool it looks on black...it just pops!

  3. Very Nice Lorraine...it does resemble the pot lid, this and your angels are very creative. Going to have to copy them soon.

  5. Omigosh........I loved your angel with this set...and I love the tree just as much! If I didnt already own this set, you would certainly have enabled me!!!! So, what is next???? LOL
