Another Teapot Tuesday Challenge!

This is my card for yesterday's Teapot Tuesday Challenge (post #273). We went on a hayride though the countryside and it was sooooo much fun!
I bought this stamp off EBay a month or so ago and it's been sitting on my computer desk ever since. It screams "country cottage" to me (as well it should since it is from the Woodlands Cottage set from the 2006 Holiday SU! mini).

  • Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, retired SU! DSP
  • Ink: Close to Cocoa
  • Stamp: Woodland Cottage (retired, from 2006 mini)
  • Accessories: brads

Tuesday Teapot Party!

Yesterday's teapot challenge is located in Jellystone Park in Pelahatchi, MS, where Barney Bear is in a basket. Is he stuck in there? Is he too scared to come out? Is he just hungry and wants to eat all the food for our tea party?

I don't know. I. Just. Don't. Know. It looks to me like he is thirsty and wants to enjoy a spot of tea!

This is my card for the Tuesday Tea Party Challenge. I received this Gruffie image in an animal image swap some time ago. This challenge was the perfect opportunity to use it! I colored it with copic markers.


  • Stamp - Gruffie
  • Ink - black
  • Cardstock - Papertrey base and DSP, whisper white
  • Accessories - flat back pearls, copic markers

Featured Stamper at Splitcoaststampers

This is my card for today's Featured Stamper at

I chose to CASE this card although it ended up as not much of a CASE!

The card started out as a 4" square card. After I stamped & colored the image and sentiment, I wasn't sure if I wanted to emboss or faux stitch. But then I spied my deckle scissors!

Unfortunately they didn't cut nicely through two layers of cardstock. So I cut off the back side of the card & decided to use it as the focal point. I found some DSP that matched & cut out a matt from that. Added to brads, popped up the image, and called it a day!


  • Stampsets: Sweet Stems, Great Friend
  • Cardstock: Whisper White, dsp by Srapbook Wall
  • Ink: Versafine black, SU markers - ballet blue, bordering blue, eggplant envy
  • Accessories: brads, dimensionals, deckle scissors
