Create this card using the Part of My Story Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty.

I remember my mother serving holiday meals on beautiful, white china with gold edges (yellow roses).  That was my inspiration for using gold embossing on today’s teapot card.  The following Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration and Occasion Catalog products were used:

  • Part of my Story Cling Stamp Set. EARN IT FREE starting with a $50 product order  (Level 1) during Sale-A-Bration.  See all Level 1 Sale-A-Bration products
  • Tea Time Framelits Dies. EARN IT FREE starting with a $100 product order (Level 2) during Sale-A-Bration!  See all   Level 2 Sale-A-Bration. 
  • Coordinating Tea Together Cling Stamp Set. $22.00 (Occasions Catalog)

Tea Together & Tea Time


Start with a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base of Whisper White card stock. 

Cut a piece of Vellum card stock to 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.  TIP: Assemble elements on vellum piece first. Then add adhesive below vellum in areas that will be hidden below the solid card stock.

Adhere a  2 5/8 x 4 Rectangle Stitched Framelits Die of Melon Mambo card stock and a 2 1/2 x 5/8 piece of Gold Foil with Snail Adhesive.

Use the Stamparatus to stamp the sentiment, teapot, and flowers in Versamark Ink onto Whisper White card stock that has been rubbed with an Embossing Buddy.  Cover with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, flick to remove the excess and set with a Heat Tool.

Crop with the Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, and coordinating Tea Time Framelits (teapot and flowers), Rectangle Stitched Framelit Die (sentiment).

Color the flowers with the Light Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blend (the color is plenty close to Melon Mambo). Add a Pearl Basic Jewel to the flower centers for a pop of polish. 

Adhere the teapot and flowers with Stampin’ Dimensionals.   Adhere the vellum to the card base.

  9. Jennifer Michalski

    This card is so beautiful! I love the gold accents along with the dash of color. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  10. I’m so glad this teapot brought a little creativity and nostalgia to you!

  11. Think of the joy you have brought to so many of us with this card! I LOVE how you balanced the space around the teapot. The gold strip is the perfect size and the Mambo Melon is a perfect color. TFS and spreading the blessing for today.

  12. Love how you captured a memory with your pretty gold, embossed teapot!

  13. The gold embossing you created on your teapot just floods me with memories from my childhood. But have to admit……the Melon Mambo flowers put me over the edge. LOVE IT MY FRIEND!

  14. Mary, your teapot is gorgeous! The pink and gold are spectacular together!

  15. Oh Mary this sentiment is one that describes YOU!!! Your card is just beautiful. I love teapots even though I am not a tea drinker!

  16. I love the modern blocking you’ve added behind this classic tea pot. ♥ Such a great card!

  17. Beautiful, Mary! I like keeping the teapot white as well and didn’t think about it probably holding on to my mother’s. I bet that’s the reason though. Your flowers are perfectly done and give the card some great texture. Love it!

  18. Your teapot is fabulous! The flowers and pearls seem to be painted on the pot.
