Stampin’ Up Tea Together Easel Stand Up Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your week been?  The weekend is right around the bend, are you making any plans?

For today I have a fun fold card for you.  I got the idea from Rachael Rife @ rachthestamper,  but it looks as if the original idea came from Pootles Papercraft aka Sam Hammond.  This was the last of 4 cards we made at my Stamp Camp Tuesday night.  It looks a lot harder than it is.  I had a brand new stamper there and she made it no problem.  Here’s my card.

I started with an 8″ X 8″ panel of Petal Pink cardstock for my card base.  I scored it at 4″ then turned it and scored at 4″ again.  I then cut from the center down one side only.  On the top portion that was not cut I scored from the outside edge to the center top edge for the angle fold.  Using my Bone Folder I gave it a good crease on all the score lines.  The 2 straight ones I folded in and the 2 angle ones I folded out.

I cut 2 pieces of Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper into 3 3/4″ squares.  One of the pieces of DSP I cut in half to make 2 triangles for the outside folds.  I adhered the marbled piece of DSP to the bottom part where the easel was going to sit using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the 2 triangle pieces of DSP to the outside folded pieces using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I took a 3″ X 6″ piece of Petal Pink cardstock and folded it in half.  Using the 3rd largest scalloped circle from the Layering Circle Framelits Dies, I cut it out not putting the full circle on my paper, letting it hang over the folded edge about 1/4″ so that it would open up like a card.  I folded the top of the scallop circle up and in half meeting the little scallops to make the easel.  I cut another of the same size scallop circle from a piece of the Petal Promenade DSP and adhered it to the top section of the scallop circle.  Using the 2nd smallest scallop circle from the Layering Circle Framelits Dies I cut a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock to make the easel stopper.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the teacup image, the sentiment in the teacup and the large rose image from the Stampin’ Up Tea Together Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink.  I colored them in using the Petal Pink and Light Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images using the Tea Time Framelits Dies and my Big Shot.  I adhered the teacup to the scalloped circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the rose to the small Mossy Meadow scalloped circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Mossy Meadow scalloped circle to the Petal Pink scalloped circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals placing it where I wanted the easel to stand open.  I adhered the easel piece to the center of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the teacup image from the Tea Together stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in the center of the teacup in Smoky Slate Ink.  I colored the teacup in using my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the card base, under the easel panel, using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the teacup and the rosebud from the Tea Together stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front and colored it in using my Petal Pink and Light Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered a piece of the Petal Promenade DSP to the envelope flap.

Here you can see that the card folds up nicely to fit into the Medium Envelopes, but it will need extra postage.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  If you have any questions on how to make this card, please feel free to email me and I will try to explain it better.  I didn’t realize until I started typing how difficult it is to explain step by step what I did.  Happy Stamping!!

A few notes about the lists:

  • Due to high demand for retiring stamp sets, these items will have guaranteed availability until May 24; all other products are not guaranteed and are available while supplies last only.
  • Order deadline to get the retiring products:  June 3, 2019; 11:50 PM (MT)

Stampin’ Up! Retirement List Clarification

It looks like every single stamp set from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog is being retired and that isn’t the case, the carryover sets are being transitioned to Cling Mount.

The stamp sets offered in clear-mount or wood-mount in the 2018–2019 annual catalog that are carrying over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog will be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).

If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.
