Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop - Teapot

Thanks for joining me today for the latest Serendipity Stamps die release.   If you're following along with the blog hop today you should have reached me from my sweet friend Anya's blog.  If you've just arrived and are starting here,  you can get all the details on Mary's Blog.  We're showing projects today that feature the new teapot and tea cup dies . 

I wanted to give you a better look at the dies and point out some of the great details that might not be so obvious.  There is piercing along the lid and base of the teapot.   There is a cut line that makes the lid easy to detach making it easy to  replace it with a different color or remove it completely.  I can see a bouquet of flowers peeking out the top. 

The tea cup has the same pierced detail and the saucer is easy to snip off if you want to change colors or use the cup by itself like I did on my second card. 

I made two cards today - a fussy version with a pretty doily background, bow and a tag designed to look like the little label on a tea bag.


My second card is simpler.  I started with an embossed card base and  added a string of tea cups in different colors.  The sentiment is stamped on a bitty tag that I tied around the handle of the teapot. 
Here's a peek at the inside.
The next stop on the hop is the super talented Jenny Gropp.  I know you're going to love her project!  But before you go - leave me a comment!!! One random commenter will be selected from the blogs to receive a $20 gift certificate from Serendipity Stamps.  That way you can select whatever die (or stamps) you like!  You have until Midnight US East Coast Time on March 30 to leave a comment.  The winner will be posted on Mary's blog on March 31.
