You Are Tea-riffic Teapot Card

by Joanne James24. January 2016 09:00

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge over at The Paper PlayersThis week it is the turn of the lovely Nance to host and she has my favourite type of challenge, a sketch, for you to play along with:

For my card this week I was inspired to use my Cups and Kettle Framelits Dies and co-ordinating 'Have A Cuppa' Designer Series Paper Stack for a fun card:


My colour scheme was taken directly from the paper stack and my card is otherwise really quite self explanatory. I added a White Perfect Accent to my teapot lid and some clear Wink of Stella to the steam heart above the spout for added shimmer. I love the bright colours in these papers and the many little elements in the framelit set - endless creative possibilities! 

Before you reach for your ink and papers, check out what our amazing team has created to inspire you this week:

Absolutely adorable card, Joanne!  I love your use of the teapot paper and the heart of steam is the sweetest little accent.  Delightful use of the sketch--thank you for making it shine!

This is so sweet!  I have to confess that I like the dies from this line better than the stamp set itself....they're just adorable with the matching DSP!  Love it!  Warm and cozy, perfect for my snowed-in Sunday!

Joanne, I smiled when I looked at your card!  I thought of all your "British" friends having a spot of tea!  I love the DSP and the adorable teapot.  Such a happy card, My Friend!  XX

This is a tea-riffic card, Joanne! I keep seeing cards with this set and now I'm wondering why I didn't order it? I guess it's not too late.

Joanne, I love this cup die and the DSP.   I have a couple of friends who would love this card as much as I do.   Hugs
