Double D - Tea & Coffee

Hello Dear Friends!

It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
I'm hosting today and as you can see by my blog title ... the theme is 


Here is the fun mood board I've created to help inspire you!

I had several stamps/dies I could use for today's creation but of course
reverted back to some of my old favorites.

The design paper used for my tea pot was a scrap of OLD DCWV that was in the scrap box and I thought would make a good pattern for the front of my Spellbinder 'Tea Service'  tea pot.  I used a gold Pilot marker to accent the handle on the lid, the spout opening, rim of teapot opening & base.  I then die cut the tea pot two more times from white card stock and glued them all together for added dimension.    White Nuvo crystal drops was used for the steam.

My 'tea time' sentiment is a stamp from Sweet Stamps.
The verse is a stamp from Rubber Cottage  a local rubber stamping
company but I purchased several of their sentiment stamps
when they were at the springtime Adventures in Stamping convention
held in Akron in April.

The background papers and hummingbird panel are from the Graphic45 8x8 paper pack called 'Botanical Tea".

 I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun!
Here's what I have up for grabs to one lucky random draw winner.

What a fun prize!

How adorable! Using the patterned paper on that tea pot is genius! Looks just like one my Grammie used to have, LOVE it!

Gee, I had internet for almost a whole 45 minutes before it went away. Trying again... We'll see how long it lasts this time. I'm loving all the tea and coffee cards for this challenge. So pretty how you cut the teapot from the floral paper. Looks authentic. In fact, I have one similar in my hutch. I almost used this Graphic 45 paper. It's one of my favorite collections. So beautiful, Darlene!
