Tea Time - A Child's Year Teapot

For My Sheri Crafts design team project, please click here or scroll down! 

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

A couple of my other crafting loves include cross-stitch and ribbon embroidery! My walls are loaded down with many of my framed works. I love how little X's can make such a beautiful picture! Now it seems paper crafting keeps me busy! Whenever I saw the lovely photo inspiration at The Shabby Tea Room, my eyes were naturally drawn into the gorgeous cross stitch piece. I did not have time to cross-stitch a little bread cover so I chose to do a small ribbon embroidery spider web rose on the linen fabric. I think the small bread cloth works good with my tea pot theme.

Card measures 6 1/2" x 5". Papers are some of my favorite K&Company papers.
Cuttlebug Swiss Dots is used on the blue lid of the tea pot.
Just Rite Stamps - Times New Roman Font 15 pt. is used for TEA TIME.  
Martha Stewart Ribbon Loop edge is used on the pink mat. Another piece of pretty lace is used on top of the mat.
Cricut Cartridges:
A Child's Year -  P. 67 Tag feature.. The teapot is actually a card itself and is pop-dotted on the main card. Perfect way to add an additional sentiment.
Mother's Day Bouquet - Flower is leftover cuts from a previous project. I added the flower to a gathered lace rosette for the center of the tea pot.

Pearls, lace, and crinkle ribbon are from my stash. I was hesitant about the placement of the tea pot on the card, but I am pleased with the tilted look!

  5. Glenda there are so many details and they are all beautiful. You have truly proven to be good at this Shabby Chic thing. That little teapot is amazing.

  6. Gorgeous Glenda! I've done a lot of cross stitch, too, but have sidelined it for papercrafting. I've been thinking about making some small items to work into card projects. Maybe someday!
