Stampin’ Up Shimmer Tea Together

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?  Is anyone doing anything this weekend?  I’m going to work and if today is like the past couple weekends, it’s going to be crazy busy.

I have another clean and simple card for you today using one of my favorite stamp sets that’ll be retiring soon.  Here’s my card for today.

My design is from Inspire. Create. Challenge #068.  Here is their sketch.

I also joined in with Shopping Our Stash Challenge #419.  Their theme is ‘Mother’s Day’

I started by embossing a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, I adhered it to a Noble Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper card front.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tea cup from the Stampin’ Up! Tea Together Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the rose bud image from the Tea Together stamp set on the tea cup in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the rose bud images in using my Old Olive and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends markers.  I colored the edges of the tea cup in using my Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Tea Time Dies.

I wrapped a piece of the Gold 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon around the card front and tied a bow.  I adhered the teacup to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Itty Bitty Greetings Cling Stamp Set in Old Olive Ink on a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment to the tea cup using Snail.  I adhered the card front to a Soft Sea Foam card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the tea pot image from the Tea Together stamp set in Soft Sea Foam Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Friend Like You Photopolymer Stamp Set in the center of the tea pot in Old Olive Ink.  I added a little shading to the tea pot using my Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Old Olive mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Soft Sea Foam 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 on the envelope front.  I stamped the sentiment from the Tea Together stamp set in Old Olive Ink in the center of the tea cup.  I colored the tea cup using my Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the rose bud image from the Tea Together stamp set on the corners of the envelope flap and the larger rose image from the Tea Together stamp set in the center of the envelope flap all in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the images in using my Old Olive and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.

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

Stampin’ Up! Friends Like You

Good Monday morning my stamping friends.  How was everyone’s weekend?  Saturday was a beautiful day here, but Sunday was rainy and chilly.  Sorry I missed yesterday posting.  I got a call at 6am from one of my cashiers telling me she was at the vet with her dog and wouldn’t be able to get in to work on time.  Of course I had to go in and cover for her, so I didn’t have time to get my post done for you.

Today’s card uses some of the 2018-2020 retiring colors, one of them is not my favorite.  My team leader, Amy, thinks she is going to get me to start liking yellow.  I don’t think it is going to happen, though I do like it in my card.  Here’s what I made for today.

My sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #432.  Here is their sketch.

My colors are from CAS Colours & Sketch Challenge #367.  Here are their colors.

I started by stamping the rose bud image from the Stampin’ Up! Tea Together Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink across a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I am definitely going to miss this stamp set.  I colored the images in using my Call Me Clover and Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends Markers.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Positive Thoughts Cling Stamp Set in Blueberry Bushel Ink below the row of rose buds.  I adhered the Whisper White card front to a Pineapple Punch mat using Snail.

I cut a scalloped oval using my Layering Ovals Dies out of a panel of Blueberry Bushel cardstock.  I then cut the center out using a solid oval from the Layering Ovals Dies that was 2 sizes smaller.  I adhered the oval to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large rose image from the Tea Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Call Me Clover and Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Tea Time Dies and adhered it to the oval using Glue Dots.  I adhered the card front to a Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Tea Together stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered a strip of Call Me Clover cardstock to the bottom of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pineapple Punch mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the rose bud image from the Tea Together stamp set 5 times.  I colored the images in using my Call Me Clover and Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends Markers  and cut all the images out using my Tea Time Dies.  I adhered the rose buds to the bottom of the Whisper White panel just under the Call Me Clover strip Using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large rose image from the Tea Together stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom front and the envelope flap.  I colored the images in using my Call Me Clover and Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends Markers.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  The Tea Together stamp set, 2018-2020 In-Color cardstock, Ink, Stampin’ Blends Markers and the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots are all retiring soon.  If you like these items, don’t wait. Grab them while they are still available.  These items are going fast.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Tea Together for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends.  How is everyone doing today?  Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by. This week we had a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.
Here is the sketch we had to work from.

Here’s my card using this weeks sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper to an Early Espresso mat using Snail.  I added a strip of Blushing Bride cardstock to the bottom of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a piece of Mint Macaron 1/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon around the Blushing Bride strip and tied a small bow.  I adhered the card front to a Blushing Bride card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I embossed a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock using the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.  I swiped my Mint Macaron stamp pad across the panel to highlight the raised parts.  I adhered the embossed panel to an Early Espresso mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tea cup image from the Stampin’ Up! Tea Together Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink.  I cut the image out using my Tea Time Dies.  I stamped the small flower image from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style  Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of the tea cup.  I colored the tea cup using my Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends Markers and the flower image in using my Old Olive and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the tea cup to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Tea Together stamp set in Early Espresso Ink  I cut the image out using my Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  The sentiment fits perfectly with the smallest die.

I adhered the sentiment to the embossed panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a Pearl Basic Jewel in the center of the flower on the tea cup.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tropical Cling Stamp Set in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the tea cup image from the Tea Together stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink over the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to an Early Espresso mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Blushing Bride card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the teacup image from the Tea Together stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the sentiment from the Tea Together stamp set in Blushing Bride Ink inside the tea cup.  I adhered a panel of the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.
