Christmas cards have been mailed, giving me time to play with fabulous new products from the Occasions 2019 catalog. Today, I felt like a warm cup of tea.

Steeped in Love


The teapot is from the Tea Together stamp set, which I stamped in Mossy Meadow ink on Thick Whisper White cardstock. It is “painted” with a piece of patterned vellum from Floral Romance Designer Series Paper. I cut the teapot and patterned vellum with a FREE Tea Time die. This die set is one of the Sale-A-Bration items that is FREE with a 100.00 order, and was at the top of my list.

TIP: The vellum is adhered to the teapot with tiny dots of liquid glue behind the leaves and flowers.


Now that I had my teapot, I decided on a background of Fresh Fig from Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper, and layered this on a Sahara Sand card base. I built a frame for my teapot with wood textured paper from Floral Romance DSP, and Rectangle Stitched dies. The frame was layered for sturdiness, and placed on Adhesive Foam Strips for dimension.

TIP: The teapot has doubled dimensionals, so it’s supported at the same height.


I really had fun with the vellum details. This lacey, Petal Pink pattern is also from Floral Romance DSP. The “love steam” coming from the spout was cut with a die from the Well Written die set. Also from that set, is the floral sprig coming from the sentiment. The sentiment, “Love is a warm cup of Tea,” is from the Tea Together stamp set. It is stamped in Fresh Fig ink on Whisper White cardstock, covered with vellum, and cut with a Layering Circles die. 


My inspiration for the layout is from Freshly made Sketches.


I missed out on previous Stampin’ Up! sets with drinking vessels, so I plan to have lots of fun with this one. It’s available to demonstrators now, and customers Jan. 3, 2019.
