Cardstock used is Wisteria Wonder for the card base and the teapot. Elegant Eggplant for the flower on the teapot and the heart. The center of the flower is So Saffron. The butterflies were stamped onto Whisper White using Elegant Eggplant, Wisteria Wonder and Perfect Plum inks. The patterned paper is from the Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper. I stamped the leaves from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set using Mint Macaron ink.
For the teapot, I folded a piece of Wisteria Wonder and offset the die from Cups & Kettles Framelits Dies so there would be a small fold on the handle and the teapot would open. The flower was cut from the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies. The sentiment is from A Nice Cuppa stamp set and stamped using Elegant Eggplant ink. I added Pearl Basic Jewels to the butterflies, the teapot lid and the flower on the teapot.

Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,
I had to see what the surprise with your teapot might be, Marsha, and I love it! How do you keep it from swinging open?ReplyDelete
Thanks, Heidi! For the photo, I put some removable tape inside the teapot to keep it closed. When the tape is removed and the card is upright, the teapot front shifts away from the back just enough to let you know it can swing open. Hope that explains it. :-)Delete
Marsha, this is one of the best cards I've seen using the Cups & Kettles Framelits Dies. Love it!ReplyDelete

Thanks, Leanne! I had fun with this one. The stamp set and the dies were a birthday gift from a good friend and I just had to use them. :)Delete
