PCS High Tea Blog Hop

Welcome to the Paper Crafters Sampler “High Tea” blog hop featuring our 3D teapot template from the March issue of the Paper Crafters Sampler entitled, “Orange Blossom Tearoom”.

Did you just arrive here from Lisa's Blog? Wasn't her take on this template wonderful? I just love her style.
Don't worry if you just started the hop it runs in a full circle so you won't miss anything

With the current trend of tea images in the paper crafting world, it only seemed appropriate to offer a tea-related template, and that is our newest “High Tea” 3D, teapot.
Now-a-days, teapots come in so many sizes and shapes, it was easy to find one for some inspiration. Here is mine:


I printed the template out on Crumb Cake card stock and then cut out the pieces. I embossed all of the pieces with the perfect dots EF using my Big Shot. I used the Tasteful Trim die for the scallop and rick rack around the base. 
The flowers are made using my 3/4 inch and 1/4 inch circle punch using real red and daffodil delight card stock. I stacked these circles together and added a gold brad to the center. I used old olive card stock to make the stems and leaves. the leaves are punched with the Build a Blossom punch. I added a small heart at the top, it comes from the Heart to Heart punch.


  As a Thank You for veiwing, each design team member will be selecting a random winner to receive a free issue of the March 2012 "Orange Blossom Tearoom" issue.

To enter the drawing, simply leave me a comment on this post from now until Friday after viewing the teapot.  Increase your chance of winning by leaving a comment on each design team members blog.  Winning viewers will be announced and will receive their March issue link Saturday, March 31st.

Now feel free to go back and take another peek at Lisa's tea pot or hop on over to Tiffany's Blog to see her creative take on this fun template.


Have a great day and HAPPY STAMPING!!
