After being almost late for last week’s DU2DS Challenge, I’m kind of early this week, LOL! Well, that’s because my mind is still on teapots (check my April 30th post), and how to decorate them. The sketch provided at DU2DS put me in high gear right away, and I’m pretty happy with how this project turned out.  We (that means DH and I) haven’t released this template on Gem’s Cottage yet, as we had some setbacks. Hopefully, it will be up by Monday. Sooo, back to this project, I used Squareweave Chocolate from The Paper Company for the teapot base, Truffle cardstock from Bazzil (medium brown), cream dotted paper and ribbon from my stash. The coffee cup image is one I made myself (if you are interested to have it, ask and it shall be given ;-),  post a comment  and I will e-mail it to you), colored with Prismas and blended with… baby oil! “Coffee break” is printed using the font BlizzardD. I’m planning to fill up this pot with several single-serve coffee packets, sugar and creamer for my DD’s teacher(s). For those who don’t drink coffee, I’ll fill the teapot (decorated like the pink one in my previous blog entry) with tea and honey instead.

The challenge for DU2DS this week is “Things with Wings“, and since I was working on a teapot template this past week, I thought that I might as well incorporate it into the challenge. This project was easy to make once I had the template down (this template will be one of the new releases in my site, Gem’s Cottage,  tomorrow!). Pink card stock for the main teapot base is from The Paper Company, Tinted Dawn; the patterned paper (I just love it!) is from Making Memories, Noteworthy Audrey; pink flowers with brads from Making Memories; blue butterflies are from Simple Sampler, recolored with Prisma Color Pencils and glittered. So if it was easy, what took me so long?  Well, I actually started with a different colored cardstock (a lovely shade of purple), put some flowers and the butterflies – it didn’t work, so set it aside. Next day, undid the flowers and butterflies, tore off the background paper, put different paper, etc, etc – still didn’t work.  The next day, same thing, until I told myself: stop working on it and choose another color scheme instead! This pink one was done in less than an hour! *Sigh* Some days, I really can’t get purple right, LOL! Here’s how the final purple teapot looks like – I think it’s okay – but I’m still not that happy with it!
