Teapot Tuesday 16

I have a weakness for blue and white designs. It must be my Dutch heritage. I love, love, love this little teapot that Cindy Mothermark used for this week's challenge. You should see the cute little card that she made for the challenge. You can, you know. Just click on this link and you'll be redirected to her glob as she calls it. You'll be dazzled!

I must admit that one of the first things that I do when I get to work on Tuesday mornings is to check out the teapot of the week. Then I have to try to think about what I have at home that will do. It wasn't until much later in the day, when I got home and started going through the box(es) that I had a lightbulb moment with this one. The stamp set that I used for the main image is called Embrace Life. I watercolored the big flower and cut it out. The sprays on either side were stamped and colored with markers. I tried to keep that clean white line in all the flower petals.
Up on top I used a stamp from the Frames With a Flourish set. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to line the images up. A great hint that I came across on SCS is to use vellum cardstock as the image sheet when using the stamp-a-ma-jig. Let me say it works great. It has just enough stability not to buckle and you can see through it with no problem. Kudos to the person that came up with that!

I need a couple of birthday cards this month and I think I'll be using this one for just that purpose. Hope you like it!


  1. What a great card! I always look forward to seeing your cards, probably as much as you look forward to seeing what the teapot looks like! Thanks for sharing the vellum thing....I am not a vellum person, actually I don't like working with it, but I think I just got turned on to how to use vellum! Snort!

    Thanks for your company at the tea party...your brain came up with the perfect stamps for this challenge.....wonderful, beautiful and PERFECT birthday card!

    Thanks for the link too!
