Tea Time

I apologize for being late two days in a row.  But sometime life doesn’t go smoothly.  Nothing is wrong, just things being crazy.  So thank you for checking in and coming back to see what I have for you.

Today’s card we made at my Stamp Club on Sunday.  I believe they liked it.  I know I enjoyed creating it because it is a bit different that what I normally do.  With the sentiment I chose for the front, this card could be used for so many different occasions.  I love having cards like that in my files for a quick one to grab and send.

 

Tea Together, 148779

 

I think this card is really pretty.  Or at least unexpected.  I paired the Tea Together stamp set from the Occasions Catalog with the Tea Time Framelits from Sale-A-Bration.  They are one of the $100.00 Free items.   I believe I heard they are carrying over and that is very unusual.  Even if they do not, I believe they are well worth the price (so to speak!LOL!) The gorgeous ribbon is also from the Tea Suite of products.  It is Tea Ribbon Combo, and you get this color and an off white trimmed in gold as a pair.

The embossing folder to add some class to the tea set, is the Lace Dynamic Embossing Folder also from the Occasions Catalog.  I love the beautiful detail it brings to the card.  The Tea Pot is die cut from the Tea Room Designer Series Paper.   That is where I got the Coastal Cabana card idea from…..I love getting color inspiration from the DSP!

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you enjoyed this card.  Please return tomorrow as it is one of the PALS Blog Hops!  Those are always filled with super projects.  As always, the supply list is at the bottom the post.

Country Tri-Fold

I have shown you this card fold previously.  Before, I used the thick DSP from Share What You Love.  Today I have used DSP from Nature’s Poem, which is regular weight.  So I added a twist and gave it a backing.  Are you intrigued?  Here is the different version.

 

Country Home, 147678

 

And here is the open view.

 

 

Can you see the thin border of Mint Macaron on the back panel?  Because the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper is a more normal weight of DSP, I felt it wasn’t strong enough to stand as a card.  So I added the 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 piece on the back.  If you have been stamping a while you might remember prior to SU giving us the Thick Whisper White.  We used the regular Whisper White and add a layer of colored card stock as the base like this.

I do love this DSP.  The colors are great and I really like the stripes next to the leaves when it is folded.  I did adhere the center of the front fold before adding the oval and flowers.  The flowers are stamped in Gray Granite and colored with Stampin’ Blends.  I was so happy when this Country Home set carried over.  And I hope it carries over into the next Annual Catalog as well.  I love the milk can and pitcher, and that the colors can be adapted to whatever you need.  Another Thank You to Stampin’ Up! for these great stamp sets.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoyed today’s twist on the Tri-Fold.  I have included the measurements below as well as the supply list at the bottom of the post.

Part of My Story for CTS306

I am playing along with CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #306 today.  Brian King was who inspired this sketch.  Of course, I had to give it a try.  My first thought after seeing the sketch was that the Frogs would be perfect.  Here is my card.

 

Stampin' Up!, Part of My Story, So Hoppy Together, Gingham, Jackie Beers

Part of My Story, 149719

Here is the sketch I am CASEing:

As I said above, I decided on the frog from Hoppy Together, A SAB stamp set, right away, and then the Lemon Lime Gingham was a perfect match.  But I could not find the sentiment that seemed to be “Just Right”.  Then I ran across the Part of My Story stamp set, another SAB item, and new I had found the correct sentiment.  “I’m So Glad You Are a Part of My Story” is one that I loved the minute I saw it.  It makes me think of dear friends, loved ones, and especially the friends and family we can just be our super silly self with.  The perfect pairing for the crazy frog!!

Other than finding the perfect match, the card was super quick and easy.  I stamped in Tuxedo Black and colored the frog with Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends.  I love that you can see a touch of the Gingham check through the coloring.  It adds a bit of dimension to his body.

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you will return tomorrow for a another new project.  All of the supplies are listed at the bottom of the post.

Hello Beautiful

I have a super quick and easy card today!  It is the definition of #SimpleStamping.  It can be done quickly, great for multiples, and is wonderful with almost any designer series paper.  Can you guess what the layout is?  I will not keep you in suspense.

 

#simplestamping

Butterfly Gala Bundle, 150599

 

How cute is this?  And with FREE Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper (Botanical Butterfly DSP), you just cannot do better.  I chose the Lemon Lime Twist as the base color because I did this card with my Stamp Club.  Of all of the colors of butterflies, the Lemon Lime Twist was the most prevalent.  Since I used all of the two sheets with this pattern I went with simplest to match.

For the little butterflies, they also came from this same DSP, just a different sheet.  And I LOVE punches for quick and easy.  It was super simple for my ladies to punch the butterflies and add to their cards.

I hope you will give this layout a try.  Any DSP that Stampin’ Up! has would work in this  configuration.  I will suggest that you stamp  the underneath sentiment prior to adhering the paper.  Can you guess why I know that?  LOL!!

Thank you for visiting today.  I hope you will return tomorrow for another quick and easy project.   I have the complete list of products (although there are not very many with this cutie) at the bottom of the post.  And please read through the Join Promotion details I have listed below.  I would love to talk with you about joining my team.  I can give you a lot more reasons than I have listed here.

You Make Me Happy

My first card club of the year was yesterday.  It is so nice to get back in the groove and share what I love with friends!  I could not wait to share with them products from the new catalog.   You will be seeing these cards in the next couple of days.

For the first card I used the Meant To Be Bundle.  Oh My!!  Those dies are fabulous.  You really do need the Multi-purpose Adhesive Sheets for some of the hearts.  It makes adhering them super easy.  And the little step of adding the adhesive sheet before cutting is really no big deal.  For me, it is remembering to do it!  LOL!!

This card is not just for Valentine’s Day.  With the sentiment I used it could be for a variety of reasons, or the sentiment could easily be swapped for another.

 

Meant To Be Bundle, 150587

 

I LOVE everything about these lovely dies.  The stitching, the curly lace look, and the solid hearts (although I did not use one of those on this project), are all perfect for a variety of ideas.

I pulled my colors from this gorgeous DSP. It is the All My Love Designer Series Paper.  And for a change I used the main side instead of the reverse side 🙂  I did stamp the sentiment is Lovely Lipstick, which is also in this DSP.  I needed the darker color to show up on the blue.  I just could not bring myself to use Black on this card.

Color Combination:

 

 

This gorgeous ribbon is one of the Sale-A-Bration items.  This means it is FREE!  And you get five rolls of this beautiful ribbon simply by spending 50.00 on products.  Hint:  the Meant to Be Bundle is 53.00, so there you are!  This Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack contains 5 Yards each of Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather, and Lemon Lime Twist !  WOW!!  That is 25 Yards of ribbon at No additional cost to you!!

Thank you for stopping in this morning.  I very much appreciate it.  I have listed the measurements below and the complete supply list is a the bottom of the page.  You can click on any item and be taken directly to my online store.

You’re So Awesome

I really love this sentiment so I could not wait to ink it up.  I got this card layout inspiration from Pinterest and went with this entire set.    It could be made into a Simple Stamping card or multi-layered very easily. My card is somewhere in between those.

 

Flowering Desert, 148700

 

There is not much to comment about in this one.  I added the flowers to give it more texture and  depth.  And the sentiment needed some background.  So I used Touches of Texture to stamp and stamp off with Sahara Sand beneath the punched out sentiment.  I also did some around the edges for the desert floor.

Thank you for visiting today!  I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s blog hop and will come back tomorrow for a Non Card project.  Although the layout could very easily be used as a card.  Now you will be guessing!
