This week, and next at CASE-ing The Catty we are CASE-ing our favourite retiring bundle. I adore Tea Together with its matching dies and have been using it lots lately. Last I checked it was still in the Last-Chance Products, and it has been drastically reduced in price.
These two cards were the starting point, mainly because the Purple Posy paper from Best Dressed DSP just said 'Teacups', to me. Some gold heat embossing times three, and I began to trim the patterned paper for the paper-piecing on the teapot and cup on the left.
It had to be gold embossing because my grandmother's teacups which are in my custody now, all have gold rims which NEVER can go in the dish washer!!!!Unfortunately, it is often difficult to pick up those details in a photograph.
This other Purple posy card has a plain teapot & cup and a strip of the DSP is behind them.
Paper-piecing helped to dress this teapot too, using a paper from Ornate Garden SDSP. The small flowers have a passing resemblance to a flower stamp in the Tea Together stamp set.

We share our projects to inspire you to create and send cards. It would be wonderful if you CASE-d the Colours of the Ornate Garden Suite and shared your card or other project on our Facebook page.
I'd love you to choose my online shop to purchase from, use the Host Code when asked at check out, & I will send you a gift, along with a handmade card. It's extra hard at the moment to run an online business so any help you give by ordering is greatly appreciated. The items listed below were used in my project above, and link to that item in my online shop.
