Here is my "Fred She Said" creation:For the blog hop, I made the new "Teacup Pansies". This is perfect to send to someone to let them know your are thinking of them as Pansy's are the flower for "Thoughts of You". Here I have made a card with an added gift tucked inside....this teapot tea bag holder that I created.I printed out two sheets of the flowers and I printed 4 images of the teacup with pansies. All of the flowers are three dimensional. These were all colored with chalks and stickles were added to the flowers and leaves.I used the new Martha Stewart around the page Pansy punch and glued a gold bead in the center of all the pansies. I added tiny pearls to the cup detail as you can see. I stitched around the outside of my card. I can't tell you how much I love these Pansies. This shows you how my teapot fits inside the pocket I created especially for it. I repeated the flowers and the punches for inside the card.This is the teapot untied showing you how the teabag is in the pocket. I created the teabag tag with a spellbinders die cut and attached another Pansy to match this side.Within the next couple of days I will be looking into how I can bring you my pattern for this teapot teabag holder. I have all the pieces ready to scan and I have all the measurements all written down. So if you are interested in doing the teapot....stay tuned for a tutorial.
My special code word is: SAID!
