Stampin’ Up Tea Together

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your week started off?

I have 1 last Mother’s Day card for you today.   Here’s my card.

I played along with the Stampin’ Up Only Challenge #222. Their theme was “Celebration”. I thought Mother’s Day fit in perfectly.

I also played along with Always Fun Challenge #109.  Their theme was “Female or Mom”.

I started with a Soft Sea Foam card front and ran it through my Big Shot using the Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (available June 4th).   I adhered the embossed card front to a Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the Teapot and Tea Cup images from the Stampin’ Up Tea Together Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the large rose image on the teapot and the rosebud image on the teacup from the same stamp set.  I colored the images in using my Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the images out using my Tea Time Framelits Dies (available June 4th).  I cut an oval out from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies from Whisper White cardstock and stamped the sentiment from the Tea Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the top of the oval.  I cut out a scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies in Daffodil Delight cardstock as mat to my stitched oval.

I adhered the stitched oval to the scalloped oval using Snail and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Teapot and the Tea Cup to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels which I colored with my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend Marker to the stitched oval.

On the inside I did something a little different.  I made a frame using my Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies in Daffodil Delight cardstock.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tea-cup image from the Tea Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the rosebuds from the same stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink also stamping off once.  I colored the image in using my light Daffodil Delight and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of the tea-cup.  I adhered the Whisper White panel under the stitched frame using Snail and adhered the framed image to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the tea-cup image from the Tea Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the rosebuds from the same stamp set on the tea-cup and I stamped the large rose image on the envelope flap.  I colored everything in the same as I did for the card.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! has posted their retiring lists for the 2018-19 Annual Catalog and 2019 Occasions Catalog.  Head over to my online store to pick up those retiring items now!  They’re only available while supplies last from now through June 3!

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)

Please note, some of the bundle items may be carrying over into the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  However, the bundle pricing will go away, so get them while you can at the discounted price!!

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.

You can download copies of the full retiring lists in PDF Form here:

Stampin’ Up Lovely Lattice

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your week started off?

For today’s card I used 4 Sale-A-Bration items that will only be around for less than a week now.  Here’s my card.

I was able to join in with a few challenges with my card today.  First is Just Add Ink Colour Challenge #449.  Here are their beautiful vibrant colors

Next we have Stampin’ Up Only Coloring Challenge # 219

Next I played along with TGIF Product Spotlight Challenge #204

I started with a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the large image from the Stampin’ Up Lovely Lattice Stamp Set (FREE Sale-A-Bration item) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center.  I colored the image in using my Bermuda Bay and Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I adhered the artwork with Multipurpose Liquid Glue to a Gorgeous Grape card front, which I had run through my Big Shot using the Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (FREE Sale-A-Bration item). I adhered the card front to a Bermuda Bay card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I made a bow using the Pearlized Thread from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit (FREE Sale-A-Bration Item). I adhered it to the artwork using a Glue Dot.  I added a Silver Adhesive Backed Rose from the same embellishment kit.

On the inside I stamped the smaller flower from the Lovely Lattice stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the 2 corners of a Whisper White panel and colored them in with my Bermuda Bay and Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Part Of My Story Stamp Set (FREE Sale-A-Bration item) in Bermuda Bay Ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the sentiment out using my Big Shot and the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.  Using the Story Label Punch I punched out a label in Lovely Lipstick cardstock.  I adhered the oval to the center of the label using Snail and then to the Whisper White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Bermuda Bay card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped part of the large floral image from the Lovely Lattice stamp set on the envelope front and the envelope flap in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored them in the same as I did for the card front.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. I was able to use 4 of the Sale-A-Bration items for this card.  The Lovely Lattice stamp set (1st release), Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (2nd release), Part Of My Story stamp set (1st release) and the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit (3rd release).  You only have 6 days left to get your free items. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Well Written Wedding Card for Watercooler Wednesday

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your weekend?  Were you able to get any crafting done?  I was Saturday after work and most of Sunday.  I may even get some in today on this nice snowy day.  This weather really needs to get its times straight.  It’s almost spring.  We shouldn’t be having this much snow now.

For today’s card I made a really quick and easy, Clean and Simple card for you.  Take a look.

I played along with the Watercooler Wednesday challenge.  This was a really open challenge this week and I loved it. Be sure to stop by to play along and see what everyone has made. Here is their challenge..

I started with a panel of Whisper White cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot using the Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Again using my Big Shot I cut the ‘bride & groom’ out using the Well Written Framelits Dies and Champagne Foil Sheets.

I adhered the sentiment to a piece of Vellum paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Vellum to the card front using Glue Dots.

I wrapped a piece of Silver Metallic Edged Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow.  I adhered the card front to a Thick Whisper White card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Clear Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Stamp Set in Smoky Slate ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flowers from the Stampin’ Up Forever Lovely Stamp  Set in Powder Pink Ink in the 2 corners.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flowers from the Forever Lovely stamp set in Powder Pink Ink on the bottom front of the envelope and the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my quick and easy card and will give it a try.  The Country Floral DTIEF is a FREE item with a $50.00 order during Sale-A-Bration.  This is truely a beautiful embossing folder.  I’m really hoping it carries over to the Annual Catalog.  Happy Stamping!!
