I'm a Little Teapot

Are you ready for another CCEE challenge?  Frances is continuing our May themed challenges celebrating Mothers & Babies, and this week she's given us a Inspiration challenge:   create a card/project using a nursery rhyme as your inspiration.  You can get all the details on our CCEE Blog as well as see the designs my incredibly talented teammates (Frances, Cindy, Joanne, Tosha, Shirley) made.

I chose I'm A Little Teapot:

I'm a little teapot,
Short and stout!
Here is my handle;
Here is my spout.

When I get all steamed up,
Hear me shout!
Just tip me over
And pour me out!


I used my Teatime and Coffee and Tea Inchies from the Party sets by Rubbernecker.  I stamped the teapot onto white cardstock and stamped it again onto designer paper and cut that one out and adhered it over top the stamped image on the white cardstock.  My tea bags were colored with a Pale Olive Copic marker.  The little tea bag is from the Inchie stamp set and I cut that one out. The designer paper is from the retired Rockabilly dp by Stampin' Up.

A few weeks ago, Linda (aka Snail) was the Queen for the Day on Splitcoaststampers, and I didn't get a chance to honor her with a casing of one of her cards at that time.  Therefore, I chose her adorable Snowmen card as a basis for my CCEE challenge card today.  I changed everything on my card except for her basic sketch design.
I hope you're having a wonderful day and will find time to play!!!
