Welcome to the Pals’ February blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here because it’s “Time to Sale-A-Brate”! Our Design Team created projects using Sale-A-Bration items to inspire you. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
What’s the best thing for serving a warm cup of tea? You’re right, a teapot!
This adorable teapot is part of the Sale-A-Bration offerings that you can earn for FREE with a qualifying order, now through March 31st. The Tea Time die set coordinates with the Tea Together stamp set in the Occasions catalog, which you can see pictured in my Product List below. My favorite stamp sets have dies that cut the images, and this was an exciting Sale-A-Bration surprise!
It’s really fun selecting the china pattern for the teapot. This pattern is from Share What You Love DSP, which I especially like for it’s extra thick, non-breakable, quality. I stamped the teapot in Soft Suede ink, so the outline could be seen, before using its die for cutting.
The beautiful, Whisper White tablecloth was made with the Lace Textured embossing folder. The teapot is resting on a mat of Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive leaves, plus Rich Razzleberry sprigs made with Wonderful Floral dies.
Old Olive linen Thread was tied around the tablecloth and knotted, before adhering the tablecloth to the Crumb Cake table.
Don’t you just love the sentiment, “You are the best thing I never knew I needed” from the Wonderful Romance stamp set? I stamped it in Crumb Cake ink, and it fit beautifully on the Whisper White plate made with a Wonderful Floral die. Three little pearls were tossed on the plate for good measure.
But, the excitement doesn’t stop here. I had to share with you this stand-alone teapot. Peggy Noe shared it with her Sweet Stampers in a gingham print, and I’m sorry we don’t know the originator, but it’s just too cute not to pass along.
This is how I made it:
Cut a piece of cardstock, 3 1/2″ X 6 1/2″
Score at 3 1/4″ and fold
Place the teapot die on the folded cardstock with the knob just a bit above the fold.
Cut two teapots from your favorite china pattern, and glue. I used the Reverse Mirror technique to stamp the back of the teapot, but it would be fine to die cut without stamping. I bet you can’t wait to try it!
Thanks so much for paying me a visit!
