Stampin’ Up! Cup of Tea Thank You

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends, welcome to the weekend and Merry Christmas Eve. We’re down to the final countdown till Santa arrives. I’ll be at work today waiting on those crazy people (like me) that waited till the last minute to go shopping. The good thing is, we’re closing the store at 2pm. In all the years I’ve worked here (38 to be exact) I’ve NEVER worked on Christmas Eve. I’m usually home prepping our 7 fish dinner. Things have changed a bit over the past couple years.

I have a fairly quick card for you today using items from the Annual Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

Stampin' Up! Cup of Tea Thanks 1 creativestampingdesigns.com

I used the Stampin’ Up! Cup of Tea Bundle along with the Tea Boutique 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

My sketch is from Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #404.

Stampin' Up! Cup of Tea Thanks 2 creativestampingdesigns.com

I started by adhering 3 panels of Tea Boutique DSP to a Garden Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. ON a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the teacup image from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I stamped the lemon slice from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink and the sentiment in Garden Green Ink. I cut the images out using the Teacup Dies. I colored the teacup using the Fresh Freesia and Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I cut a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Deckled Rectangle Dies. I embossed the die cut panel using the Hive 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered the panel to a Garden Green mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I wrapped a piece of Garden Green 3/8″ Ribbon from the Real Red and Garden Green Ribbon Combo Pack, around the layered panel and tied a bow.

I adhered a piece of White Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack to the back of the teacup. I threaded it through the handle and adhered it to the back of the tag using a Glue Dot. I adhered the teacup to the layered panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the lemon slice using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Glossy Dots Assortment to the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Garden Green Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the teacup image from the Cup of Tea stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it using the Fresh Freesia and Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the lemon slice next to the cup in Daffodil Delight Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Garden Green mat then to the inside of the Garden Green card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the teacup image from the Cup of Tea stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Fresh Freesia and Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the lemon slice from the Cup of Tea stamp set next to the cup in Daffodil Delight Ink. I adhered a panel of Tea Boutique DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you like the card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas tomorrow and are able to spend some time with family and friends.

If you need any stamping supplies, I’d love to be your Demonstrator. Just click HERE to go directly to my online store or drop me an email if you have any questions. 

MY CURRENT HOST CODE IS:   7PTW7A3H

Use this host code when placing an order with me. When you order $50 or greater you will receive a free gift from me! If your order is over $150, please do not use this code, but you’ll still get the free gift. The free gift is your choice of any 1 item valued up to $10.00 from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog or the July – December 2022 Mini Catalog!  Unfortunately packs of cardstock are no longer an option for a free gift. Shipping has become too expensive to ship and it’s costing me as much to ship as the cardstock costs. For any orders $50 or more I will also send you my monthly class tutorials.  Click HERE or go to my Customer Rewards for more details and to see what this month’s tutorials are.

Please remember to use my current Host Code and make sure that you can see my name on the final checkout page listed as your Demonstrator when you order so that you know that you’re ordering with me and you’ll get my rewards! 

Happy Stamping, Karen

*********************************************************************************************************

In response to changing policies at Stampin’ Up – I’m adjusting my Ordering Gift policy as well.  I’m having to get a little more tough on the adding of Host codes when you place your order thru my Online Store.

Not to worry – you’re still going to get that $10 ordering gift for orders of $50 (before shipping & tax) or greater.  And the gift is still any 1 SU! product up to that $10 value – which includes some of our fun Host Sets!

But – if you DO NOT use the Host code for your orders of less than $150 (this is the RETAIL total before Shipping & Handling), then you’ll have two options:

  1. You’ll need to call Stampin’ Up! (1-800-Stamp-Up) and ask them to add it for you. They’re very helpful and will get it done quickly!  OR….
  2. If your order was over the $50 threshold but under $150, then…you’ll forfeit that $10 ordering gift and rewards – this is the Bummer Option – and I REALLY don’t want to do this, SO please remember to add my Current Host Code.

If you are a customer of mine, you should have received your catalogs. If you are not a customer yet and would like to be, please send me an email with your name and address stating that you would like a copy of the new January-April 2023 Mini Catalog.

I’m offering a Designer Series Paper share from the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog, and I’d love to have you join!!  I’m placing my share order early on January 5 and I’m going to use the expedited shipping option so I should be able to have the shares cut, bundled and back out to you during the week of January 9.

How shares work:  I order full packs of all of the Designer Series Papers listed below, I cut them into 6″ x 6″ pieces (or 6″ x 12″ pieces for double shares) and give you one panel of each design from each pack on the list.  I pack up the paper in a cellophane bag and mail it back out to you just as quickly as I can!  Shares give you a good working sample of all of the papers so that you can decide which ones to order in full packs! Designer Series Paper Shares Do Not earn my Creative Stamping Designs Rewards.

Here are the Designer Series Paper Shares that I am offering from the new Mini Catalog:

New Designer Series Paper Share – $27.00 plus $8.00 for Priority Mail shipping

FREE Gift From Me! – As a bonus for joining my share, you’ll also get a sampler of the Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper Packs!  I’ll send each participant in my share a sampler of papers from the Dainty Flowers, Day At The Farm, Favored Flowers and Dandy Designs Sale-a-bration DSP packs!
