Teapot Tuesday 24

A little teapot for one with it's own cup is what Cindy shared with us this week. I love the snowpeople with their twig arms. And the little bird resting on the twig arm is so cute. Cindy said that there are some bird houses on the back of this ensemble. Please visit her glob so you can see the great (and I mean that more than one way!) card that she has come up with this week for her Teapot Tuesday Challenge.
I have a few snowman stamps but when I saw that there were two together on the teapot this week I was reminded of the two snowpeople in the hostess set Window Dressing. I haven't used that set nearly as much as I should have so I decided to give it some love this week. The little red bird is also from that set. I tore a piece of white paper to add the snow in front of the snowmen. I don't think you can see from the picture but I added some sparkle to that snow giving it that crusty look. My background color is a little lighter than the original pot just so I could add some interest to it with the snowflake stamp from Season of Friendship stamped in both craft white and VersaMark ink.
The ribbon was added under the large snowflake to mimic the scarves from the snowmen and thinking about it now, if I had some darker blue floss I would have added a stripe or two to the ribbon to make it coordinate better. I didn't want to stamp the sentiment (from Best Yet) on the ribbon (tried that before here and it wasn't too readable) so I added it on a strip of Baja Breeze paper and sponged the edges with the Pacific Point Blue.

The clear ice brads are from the pretties kit. I added those and used a glitter gel pen to add some sparkle to the card. Boy was that hard to photograph. I hope you can see it.
The felt snowflakes are from SU and they come in three colors, white, red, and blue. I thought the white would look best here.

I know that I've probably said this before but I hope you all are enjoying the Teapot Tuesday Challenges as much as I have. I hope Cindy doesn't run out of pots too soon!!!
