Stampin’ Up! Shaded Summer Tea for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend. I hope everyone is having a wonderful week.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is May Flowers. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Shaded Summer Cling Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Cup of Tea Photopolymer Stamp Set and Tea Boutique 6X 6 Designer Series Paper for my Clean and Layered Card. I was inspired by the beautiful flowers and colors from the inspiration photo.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #175.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by embossing a panel of Basic White cardstock using the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder. I marked the panel on the right side down 2 1/4″. I cut from the bottom left corner to the 2 1/4″ mark using my Paper Trimmer. I adhered the embossed panel to a Calypso Coral card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to a Calypso Coral card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered a panel of Tea Boutique DSP to the center of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I colored the smaller floral stamp from the Shaded Summer stamp set using my Calypso Coral, Petal Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Write Markers and stamped the image on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the image out using the coordinating die from the Summer Shadow Dies. I cut the solid teacup from the Teacup Dies from a panel of Tea Boutique DSP. I adhered the flower image to the back of the teacup using a Glue Dot and then to the card front on the DSP using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the tea tag image from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Pale Papaya Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the Cup of Tea stamp set inside the tag in Calypso Coral Ink. I cut the tag out using the Teacup Dies. Using my Label Me Fancy Punch, I punched the small hole in the top of the tag. I colored a piece of White Baker’s Twine, from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack, using my Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends Markers and threaded it through the hole on the tag. I adhered the Baker’s Twine behind the tag and behind the cut with a small piece of Tear & Tape. I added a few Calypso Coral Polished Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Shaded Summer stamp set in Soft Succulent Ink on a Basic White panel. I colored the small floral image from the Shaded Summer stamp set using my Calypso Coral, Petal Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers and stamped it on the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Petal Pink mat and then to the inside of the Calypso Coral card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Shaded Summer stamp set on the envelope front colored the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Tea Boutique DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Bottled Happiness

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. Happy Mother’s Day to all. I hope you get to have a relaxing, enjoyable day. I’ll be at work, and I have this feeling it’s going to be a slow day with all the rain we are having right now.

I have a quick card for you today using some of the new 2022-2024 In-Colors along with new products from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Bottled Happiness Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Go To Greetings Cling Stamp Set and the Tea Boutique 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by stamping the floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Bottled Happiness Photopolymer Stamp Set on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I first stamped the leaf and flower center image in Parakeet Party Ink towards the top of the panel. I stamped the flower image over the leaf image in Sweet Sorbet Ink. On a small panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the outline bottle image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink. I stamped the bottle fill image over the outlined image in Orchid Oasis Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper. I punched the bottle out using the Vintage Bottle Punch

On the top of the Basic White panel, I stamped the sentiment from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Orchid Oasis mat. I adhered a panel of Tea Boutique DSP to a Sweet Sorbet card base using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I tied a piece of Parakeet Party Baker’s Twine from the 2022-2024 In- Color Baker’s Twine Pack, around the neck of the bottle and tied a bow. I adhered the bottle below the stamped floral image using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the floral image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Parakeet Party and Sweet Sorbet Ink on the top of the panel. I adhered a strip of the Tea Boutique DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Orchid Oasis mat and then to the inside of the Sweet Sorbet card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the floral image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Parakeet Party and Sweet Sorbet Inks on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Tea Boutique DSP to the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Bundle (bundle price only available until May 2nd), and the Tea Boutique 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today.

Here’s our sketch for this week.

My colors are from the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #542.

I started by adhering a panel of Tea Boutique DSP to a Basic Black mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered layer to a Parakeet Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I embossed a panel of Fresh Freesia 2021-2023 In-Color Shimmer Vellum using the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder. I adhered the Shimmer Vellum to the card front using Stampin’ Seal only under where the sentiment and butterfly were placed.

Using my Brilliant Wings Dies, I cut a solid butterfly from a panel of Daffodil Delight cardstock. I cut the coordinating detailed butterfly from a panel of Basic Black cardstock. I adhered the detailed butterfly to the solid butterfly just on the body using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the butterfly to the vellum panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added black Adhesive-Backed Hexagons to the butterfly body.

On a strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered the sentiment to the vellum panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Brushed Brass Butterflies to the card front.

On the inside, I stamped the sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I stamped the butterfly image from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brillance Cling Stamp Set in Daffodil Delight Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, next to the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the inside of the Parakeet Party card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the butterfly image from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set in Daffodil Delight Ink, stamping off once, on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of Tea Boutique DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through and see everyone’s projects today.

Stampin’ Up! Bottled Happiness Sneak Peek CAS

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope you have something fun planned. I’ll be at work both today and tomorrow, and of course it’s supposed to be a beautiful weekend. Yesterday I was able to pull all my flowerpots from last summer out. I have an overhang in the back of my house where I slide all my plants under hoping they will make it through the winter. My rose bushes have green leaves on them already and my foxgloves are starting to sprout. Hopefully the weather will stay on the warmer side, so I don’t have to cover them up again.

Today’s card is a really simple one. I asked my daughter to pick colors for me to use for this one. I told her to pick 2 of the 2022-2024 In-Colors. After I was stamping with them for a minute, I realized the last card I did with In-Colors were the exact same colors. She is definitely my daughter. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Bottled Happiness Photopolymer Stamp Set (available May 3rd) along with the Stampin’ Up! Flowering Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Tea Boutique 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper (available May 3rd) for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the Tea Boutique DSP to an Orchis Oasis card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the outline detailed bottle image form the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Parakeet Party Ink. I stamped the bottle image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Parakeet Party Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, over the outlined image. I stamped the fern image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink on top of the bottle.

I stamped the sentiment from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink next to the bottle. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Orchid Oasis mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Tulips stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the fern image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink on the bottom of the panel. I adhered a strip of the Tea Boutique DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Parakeet Party mat and then to the inside of the Orchid Oasis card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the fern image from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Orchid Oasis on the envelope front in full strength and stamped off once. I adhered a panel of the Tea Boutique DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my CAS card and will give it a try. Items I used today will be available for purchase on May 3rd which is in just 10 days. Happy Stamping!!

I’m offering a Designer Series Paper share from the Stampin’ Up! 2022-2023 Annual Catalog and I’d love to have you join!!  I’m placing my share order early on May 3 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 May 9.

How my 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!

Here are the Designer Series Paper Shares that I am offering from the new Annual Catalog!

Double DSP Share – $120 + $8 Shipping by Priority Mail – if you’d like double shares of the designer paper, I’m offering those too!  I’ll cut the 12″ x 12″ designer paper sheets into 6″ × 12″ so that you’ll be able to get 3 full A2 size card fronts from each sheet and you’ll get double sheets of the 6″ x 6″ since they’re already precut.

Stampin’ Up! Cup Of Tea Sneak Peek Video Tutorial for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my fun fold Friday. How are you all doing today? Are you ready for the weekend? I’ll be working just Saturday this weekend, they gave me off Sunday, YAY!!! My catalogs should be here today, YAY!! I will get them packed up and shipped out just as soon as I can. Luckily my post office is open until 7pm, so I should be able to get them out today. If you are a customer of mine, be watching your mail in the next week.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday using all new products from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Cup of Tea Bundle along with the Tea Boutique 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper for my card today. All the items used are in the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalog and will be available on May 3, 2022.

I started by scoring and folding a panel of Orchis Oasis cardstock as listed below. I adhered 2 panels of the teapot design from the Tea Boutique DSP to Parakeet Party mats and then to the Orchid Oasis card front.

Using my Teacup Dies, I cut the solid teacup from a panel of Orchid Oasis cardstock. I cut the details teacup from a panel of Parakeet Party cardstock. I stamped the teabag tag image from the Stampin’ Up! Cup Of Tea Photopolymer Stamp Set on a panel of Basic White cardstock in Parakeet Party Ink and the sentiment in Orchis Oasis Ink. I cut the tag out using my Teacup Dies. I adhered a small piece of the Orchid Oasis 1/8″ Metallic Woven Ribbon to the back of the teacup and to the tag using a Glue Dot. You can’t see it until the last picture, but I stamped the teabag tag twice and adhered them together so it would have a back and front. I added a 2021-2023 In-Color Jewel to the teabag tag.

I adhered 2 smaller panels of Tea Boutique DSP to the sides of a Parakeet Party card base. I adhered the folded card base to the Parakeet Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I adhered 2 panels of the Tea Boutique DSP to Parakeet Party mats and then to the inside side panels of the card base. I stamped the sentiment from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Orchid Oasis Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the teacup image from the Cup of Tea stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it using my Orchid Oasis and Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Parakeet Party mat and then to the inside of the Orchis Oasis 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 in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I stamped the teabag tag in Parakeet Party Ink and the sentiment on the tag in Orchid Oasis Ink. I colored the teacup in using my Orchid Oasis and Parakeet Party Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of the Tea Boutique DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Maybe this suite or bundle is on your shopping list? How about the new cardstock colors? I’d be more than happy to help you out with getting them. If you need a catalog, please contact me and I will get one in the mail to you ASAP.
