For my card today I used the new Always Time For Tea Die-namics and Stamp set. What a fun set this is!!!! I used the dies to cut my teapot and my cup & saucer from card and designer paper and then paper pieced them together. The stamp set also has stamps you can use to decorate your teapot if you wish to use them instead. I can see so many possibilities with this set.

I wanted it to look like there was tea coming out of the teapot so I added a few pearl flourishes coming out of the spout into the tea cup.

I have also used a couple of older MFT Die-namics to create this card, those are the MFT Die-namics Simply Scallops Medium die and the MFT Die-namics Upsy Daisy (for the flower on the teapot).

Here is the inside of my card. I used the left over pieces from the teapot on the front of my card to create another teapot and added the remainder of the sentiment in the centre of it. The beginning of the sentiment (Friendship …) I stamped on the front of my card.

Paper: White; Black; Green; Chapter One DP – Kaisercraft
Die-namics: Always Time for Tea; Simply Scallops Medium; Upsy Daisy – MFT Stamps
