Cottage Cutz Tea Time

It's time for tea at The Scrapping Cottage.   Let me invite you to sit a spell while I show you this card I created with some of the Tea Time Dies.  Tea Parties are one of my favorite entertaining themes.  So grab a nice cup of tea, relax, enjoy the company, and feast your eyes on this creation .  Today I am doing something a little different.  I am linking up to Beverly's Pink Saturday.  I enjoy Pink Saturday so very much and felt if I didn't do it today I never would.  Pink is my go- to-color for crafting, wearing, and decorating my home.   So thank you Beverly for having me!
 This is the Tall Teapot and the Small Teacup.   Behind them is the Oval Doily frame.  While I was playing with the Oval doily I came up with some more ways to use it that I will show in the future.  This is one die that I will you use over and over again-the possibilities are endless.  I love that it looks like it is pin pricked and I didn't have to do a thing but run it through my die cutting machine to achieve that!!! 
 You can see what I am talking about in this picture.  See under the handle on the white die piece.  Yes it is absolutely lovely.  Working with Cottage Cutz dies makes your crafting so easy.  All I did was cut out the teapot and teacup, used a bit of "tea" dye distress ink, glitter, and some stickles and my image was done. 
 As you can see here in the corners I used the decorative flower for the teapot on my corners.  Don't you like to get the most bang for your buck out of your dies, plus coordinate the embellishing at the same time.  This set allows you to do that.
 I just cut the floral design out on white cardstock and glittered the piece with some Martha Stewart Rose colored glitter I had on hand. 
So now that you teacup is empty, I hope you have enjoyed viewing this card as much as I enjoyed making it.  This Tea Time Set is so beautiful.  I am in love with it and know I will use it over and over again.  So until your next visit, I will keep you close in my heart and always in my prayers.  Here are the dies are used for this card:

Spectacular!! Love that elegant teapot and cup/saucer. The Stickles on your corners look fabulous. Just when I think you can't get any better, something like this pops up.

BTW, I love your little bird and swinging cage.

My goodness! I love the glittery touches you delicately put on the teapot and tea cup, along with the bigger bits of pink glittered flourishes. Those dies must make you one happy glamour-camper!
