Teapot Tuesday 39

It's Time for Tea again. Have you been sitting on pins and needles wondering where the teapot is this week? It's on the pincushion! And what a cute pincushion, don't you think? Cindy got this sweet little thing from another stamper Peggy (marilynpreston) as an addition to her teapot collection. You can read all about it and see Cindy's awesome card on Cindy's glob.

I'm late this week because on Tuesday night I was attending a dinner honoring a teacher friend of mine as one of this year's Teacher's Who Make Magic. She and I, and the teacher that nominated her for the award, worked together in the classroom the last year that I worked in the classroom before taking my office job. We had such a blast together that year! We all got to dress up a little and had a lovely meal, some entertainment, and did lot's of clapping for the award recipients. Way to go AB!!!

So you might think that I had a little extra time to think about my project. Well, not really. I really was stumped until last night when I remembered that I just got this new set from SU - Quilt Quips that had a house on it. And I vaguely remembered having a teacup stamp somewhere, and was thankful that my 6'4" mouse stopped by last night and was able to reach the boxes where I have all my non-SU stamps. (Thank goodness for tall sons who come to raid their mother's cabinets now and again!)
The sentiment in the set says "may your bobbin always be full" and I changed it to say what you see "may your teacup always be full". It's a..... let me think...... it's a rebus now. (Funny word isn't it!) I took a picture close-up so you could see how I colored everything.

The patterned paper backgrounds came from some Bella Rose DSP and a prints pack that I had, which unfortunately I do not remember which catalog it came from. (It's pretty though, don't you think? I should use more of it. Come to think of it, I'll put that on my list of things..... oh wait a minute, that was on my list - to use my stash. Okay, I'm doing better than I thought!)

There are four quilt blocks in the set, but I chose to use only two of them. They were stamped using the Stamp-a-ma-jig and colored with ink and a blender pen. And I just had to get those polka dots in there for Cindy!

I'm pretty pleased with this card - what do you think?


  1. So cute! Love the color combination!!

  2. Guess what? I know the word rebus! I just thought that would impress you! I learned that a year or so ago on StampOwl's blog! Hee!

    Congratulations on your involvement in the accomplishment in your school with your friends! That is wonderful. Its a wonderful thing to be acknowledged, rewarded and to give others attenion! I am glad you were doing something fun and enjoying yourself Tuesday night!

    First of all thanks for the polka dots! Snort! I love the way they coordinate with the little teacup! Good job coming up with these stamps to use. We have a gal in our stamp camp that is a quilter and she about busted a gut in excitement when this set came out! Is precious and so is your card! I swear it looks like fabric!

    Thanks for the link as always and thanks for keeping us warm. I am home early today in the middle of a huge blizzard! Hugs.
