3 X 3 Cards for Copper Tea Tin

Yesterday I focused on the Copper Tea Tin that I made as a gift for a friend, and the special card for her.  Today I am showcasing the six 3X3 cards that I placed inside the tin for her to use.  Yes, I said 6 cards, with envelopes, and there is room for more!  As I said yesterday, these tins are AMAZING !!

I stayed with the Nature’s Poem DSP from the outside of the tin.  All of the sentiments are from the A Big Thank You stamp set.  My thoughts on these little cards are as either Random Act of Kindness or as small gift inserts.  Either way, I think anyone would smile upon receiving one.

Here is a photo of the cards inside the tin.  I really was not exaggerating !! There really is room for more cards, gift card, or  maybe a small gift.

 

I hope you think these tins are as wonderful as I do.  If you have any questions, or would like to purchase some of them, please contact me.  I would love to assist you.  All of the products I used are listed at the bottom of the post.

Thank you for visiting today!  I very much appreciate it.  Be sure and check back tomorrow because it is the InKing Royalty June Blog Hop.  You would not want to miss that.  There are always amazing cards to hop along and view.

 


 

It is still a great time to become a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.  I would love to have you join my team.  A great perk for demonstrators this time of year is getting to see the new catalog first.  Then we get to order and play with the new products a month early.  For me, that is one of the best parts of being a SU Demonstrator.  Of course, the discount helps!  If you are interested, please contact me and let’s talk.

Copper Tea Tins

Today I have used the AWESOME Copper Tea Tin as the holder for some gorgeous little cards.  I will show the tin today and the main card.  Tomorrow I will show all of the 3 X 3 cards I made to go inside.

I love little containers!  So when I saw these tins in the new catalog I was so excited.  They are a perfect size.  For today’s project, I decorated with Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper.  I believe I have used more DSP since I got my pre-order than in the last year.  This year Stampin’ Up! has outdone themselves with the gorgeous papers they have created.  But, back to the tin….. I used a 12″ strip of the DSP towrope around the tin.  I think the  cajun craze (that is the color listed on the DSP pack) leaf in the DSP matches really well with the copper color of the tin.

The sweet sentiment on the tin is from the Treat Tine stamp set.  There are some wonderful sentiments there.  I am crazy about sentiments that are special, and I love the different fonts used in this set.  Another MUST Have!

For the main card, which is actually for my friend, I CASED Julie DiMatteo’s Diamond card from her last week Facebook Live.  You can see her Friday post of it HERE

I used Grapefruit Grove instead of Cajun Craze that is listed as the coordinating colors on the DSP.  I like it even better!  (That is what I used on the sentiment circle for the bellyband of the Copper Tin.)  The sentiment is from A Big Thank You.  It is a Must Have if you do any Thank You cards.  The sentiments are fabulous!!

I hope you will come back tomorrow to see the cards I placed inside the tin and see how many will fit!  It is an amazing little guy.  Thank you so much for visiting today!  All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

You Are Wonderful

Wasn’t yesterday’s Blog Hop wonderful?  There is always a great variety of stamps, colors, and embellishments.  Today I have used the same stamp set as yesterday. I am on a more masculine streak it seems.  Today’s card would be perfect or Father’s Day.

 

Rooted In Nature, 148353

 

I made yesterday’s card over a week ago, and as I was writing this post realized how very alike these two cards are.  I am not sure if that is good or bad!!

This card is quite a lot of green.  I used he Handwritten stamp as the background and stamped in Soft Sea Foam.  The sentiment is stamped in Mossy Meadow.  I used Stampin’ Write Markers in the Mossy Meadow and Soft Suede for the tree.  The leaves/branches are Old Olive both full strength and stamped off.

To give the sentiment layer some depth without trying to cut and piece the punch to create a background, I have a very easy method I use.  I simply run my Stampin’ Write Marker around the edge of the punched piece a time or two.  My holding the marker almost flat, I touch the fatter part of the large tip end on the edge of the cardstock.  Give it a try, I believe you will like the result.

Thank you very much for hopping yesterday and for coming back today.  I promise to use a different stamp set tomorrow! LOL…   All of the supplies I used are listed at the bottom of the page.

Pearl Flowers

The Stampin’ Up! Share What You Love Designer Series Paper is by far my favorite of all time!!  I have used it several times since I received my Pre-Order for the new catalog.  And I cannot stop using it.  I may need intervention!  But in addition to the AWESOME paper, I am showcasing a new fold.  Or it could be a new cut, or both!  Here it is and then I will explain what I mean.

 

Stampin' Up!, stampinup, Abstract Impressions, Share What You Love DSP, jackiebeers, Jackie Beers

Abstract Impressions, 147513

 

 

That DSP just shines!   Actually it really does shine.  This is one of the sheets that has a pearlized look to some of the flowers.  The little pearls in the flower centers are the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls.  They are just too cute!

The Fold/Cut is a little different.  Since the DSP is card stock weight, it can serve as a card base without feeling flimsy.  To achieve this look, I cut the Smoky Slate card stock to 5 1/2 X 8 1/2.  I scored it at 4 1/4, the normal folding point for an A2 card.  But I did not stop there.  I went back to my cutter and with the score line at 3/4 on the trimmer ruler , I cut off the rest of the panel.  (And I was able to use that cut piece to make the top layer with a bit leftover.)

The DSP is cut to 4 1/4 X 5 1/2.  I burnished my fold on the Smoky Slate layer and placed adhesive on the inside of the 3/4 section.  Then all I had to do was line up the DSP with the rest of the base and fold the small section over on top of it.  Easy Peasy and perfect alignment.   An added bonus is that when you open the card, you get to see the other side of this beautiful DSP!!  WooHoo!!  That is always a problem for me when the DSP is gorgeous on both sides.  I hate to hide one of them.  With this Cut/Fold, I do not have to hide either side.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today!  I greatly appreciate it and would be happy to answer any questions if I was not very clear on the instructions.  I have listed all of the products used at the bottom of the post.  I hope you have a great rest of your day!

Lovely Friend

Have you seen all of the NEW Stampin’ Up! Colors?  Today I am showcasing the Granny Apple Green.  It is AMAZING!   And I have paired it with the NEW/Returning Poppy Parade.  Both of these are very vibrant colors and just scream SUMMER!

Stitched All Around, 146632

 

Can you tell how bright this green is?  The photograph is pretty close to the true color.  It is obviously a pull out type card.  I really like these because they are flexible.  It can be a quick note of thanks, an invitation, etc.

Here is the inside card pulled out for the sentiment.

 

Stitched All Around, 146632

 

I believe this is a sweet little insert sentiment and I know I would love to receive this card.  I stamped the outside decoration on the Granny Apple Green with the Granny Apple Green Ink to give it the watermark look.  For the insert, I used the same stamp, but I stamped off once before stamping on the Whisper White.  I wanted to be able to write over it as well as stamp the Lovely Friend.

The sentiments I used are in the Stitched All Around stamp set.  It is one that I looked at a couple of times before I saw the possibilities.  (A perk of being a demonstrator is that I received the catalog early!!)  The flower is from the Hold On To Hope stamp set, another favorite!!

Thank you for visiting today.  If you have any questions please let me know.  I have included the measurements below. And the supply list is at the bottom of the page.

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Card base is Whisper White cut to 4 1/4 X 5 1/2
  • Granny Apple Green layer is 4 X 8 and is scored at 4 and 6 1/2.  The sides are adhered with Tear & Tape.
  • The ribbon is taped under the small flap . The flap is then secured with Tear & Tape as well.
  • The tied ribbon on the front is a strip that is just slipped under the ribbon and tied into a knot.
  • The card insert is Poppy Parade cut to 3 5/8 X 3 1/8. The white is 3 1/2 X 3

Good Times

Happy Monday to you!  It appears the the storms are finally leaving us here in the south.  That is reason enough to celebrate.  My thoughts are with other parts of the country that had flooding and other serious events happen.  Hopefully my card today will give you a SMILE for a few minutes.

Waterfront, 146386

 

When I think of Good Times, I think of either the mountains, or the beach.  Today I have focused on the mountains.  The stamp set Waterfront is the perfect stamp set for those like me who like these two vacation spots.  It is a piece of cake to depict either location just by using different colors.

COLOR COMBINATION:

 

 

Today’s colors are so rich and beautiful together.  I do not believe the photograph really does them justice.  The returning Blackberry Bliss is a real jewel!  I used the Seaside Embossing Folder for the background layer and it really shows off well in the Blackberry.

Thank you for visiting today.  I have used quite a few colors on my card and they are on the supply list at the bottom of the post.  Do not forget about the Clearance Rack.  Even though technically the Retired List is gone, leftover items will begin showing up on the Clearance Rack pretty soon.

Stay tuned tomorrow and I will try to get a few of the Stampin’ Up! new product videos to link.  In the meantime, you can always go to the Stampin’ Up! YouTube site and begin watching.  Enjoy!!
