This week we left behind Christmas and jumped to Valentine's Day - which is a great change. Cindy's little pink and white teapot with hearts is so sweet. Once again she has a dazzling card to match it so please check out this link for Teapot Tuesday 27.
As luck would have it, we stopped in a Michael's while we were doing some pre-New Year's Eve Party shopping and I found the little string of hearts stamp in the $bin with the V'Day stuff they were setting up. My hearts aren't as fancy as those on the teapot but I like the way they turned out. The heart on the upper portion is punched with a new SU punch that actually has 3 different hearts on it. The new catalog will be coming out soon, so be on the look out for some cool new stuff!
I got out my Cuttlebug and used the Swiss Dot embossing folder for the pink and white panels and attempted to swipe them over the Regal Rose ink pad to color the raised dots without making too much of a mess. (Don't look too closely or you'll see where I goofed!!!)
The two panels with their string of hearts belt were looking a little forlorn on the Rose Red background so I added some white lacy borders using a Martha Stewart border punch. The pink taffeta ribbon "tied" the whole thing together. I have to say that these have to be some of my favorite colors to work with.
So, was it worth the wait?
