I'm a Little Teapot.

In the UK they just recently celebrated Mother's Day. The challenge this week at Top Tip Tuesday is to make a Mother's Day/Craft Buddy card. I followed Deneen's teapot tutorial and made a Mother's Day card. I made flowers from acetate using alcohol inks to add to the teapot. My tip is this -- When stamping images on acetate using Staz On ink, remember to turn over the acetate and use the alcohol inks on the other side, because the alcohol will make the Staz On ink run. I messed up a few flowers because I forgot this tip! LOL!


  1. Oh April, this is just about the cleverest ever. I love it. You come up with the best ideas.

  2. How cute is this!!! Love the acetate flowers - will have to try that one!

  3. What a beautiful flowered teapot! Love the acetate flowers and pretty pearl 'knob' on the top of the teapot!

  8. Wow, you used the teapot template. It's so fab. Thanks for joining us at Top Tip Tuesday.

  9. Absolutely remarkable, April! The attention to detail on this card is amaing with the pearl lid handle, and pretty colors. Did you hand cut the flowers, or did the acetate go through your die cutting machine? I've not hand luck with cutting acetate in the machines.

    1. Donna, I hand cut the flowers since I didn't have a die cut to match these particular flowers. I haven't tried cutting the acetate in the cutting machine yet.

      Hugs, April
