TEA TOGETHER

Imagine sitting with a friend sipping tea and having your friend tell you how wonderful you are!

04.24.19 Teapot lightWhat says a cup of tea better than a teapot?  This Berry Burst teapot is layered on a Whisper White embossed card front.  Debbie designed this card and chose to embellish the card front layer with beautiful Blushing Bride roses from the Petal Promenade DSP.  The top edge of the DSP is die cut with one of the Delicate Lace Edgelits Dies.  The teapot features a die-cut flower colored with Stampin’ Blends and embellished with a coordinating center.  This same flower is added to the corner of the card front and to the message layer.  The sentiment is stamped in black, die cut, and framed in Berry Burst.  Look further down to see this card with a different DSP.

04.24.19 Teacup lightAnd what goes with a teapot?  Well, a teacup, of course.  This card coordinates nicely with the teapot card and uses the same materials, but the card is done vertically instead of horizontally.  The 3 teacups are balanced one on top of the other and feature the same die-cut flower seen on the teapot sample. These flowers are embellished with a single pearl.  Wouldn’t this card be a great way to tell a friend how wonderful they are?

 

 

 

 

 

 

04.24.19 Teapot darkBut maybe you are not a Blushing Bride rose person – maybe you like roses with more depth and variety.  Debbie chose this DSP as an alternate to the one shown above.  The Mossy Meadow of the roses matches the card perfectly.  This is the same card as the first sample but uses a different Petal Promenade DSP pattern. 

 

 

04.24.19 Teacup darkOur final Tea Together sample also features the alternate Petal Promenade DSP.  I love the look of these old fashioned roses.

Which pattern Petal Promenade DSP will you choose?  Which card – the teapot, the teacup or both?  Lots of decisions for May Stamp Camp.  As a final reminder, May Stamp Camp is scheduled for Thursday May 2nd from 12 N – 6 PM, Friday May 3rd from 2 – 6 PM, and Saturday May 4th from 9 AM – 4 PM.  If these dates/times don’t work for you, please contact me and we can schedule an another date/time.  All tools and supplies are supplied and the fridge has soda pop and water.  Chances are quite good that a snack of some type will be found on the kitchen counter.  Cost for May Stamp Camp is $14 for any 4 cards and $3 for each additional card.  Please let me know which day you will be coming and which cards you wish to make.

SWEET STORYBOOK

04.24.19 Sweet Storybook 1Did I ever tell you you’re wonderful? Sweet Storybook is a cute card with one mouse expressing his feelings to the other. This Poppy Parade and Mango Melon card is developed using the “double Z” technique.  The DSP  is from the Painted Seasons Sale-A-Brations promotion.  The mushrooms and greenery from the DSP fit the theme of our card perfectly.  The front “Z” panel has 4 layers – Poppy Parade, the mushroom layer, the mice layer, and the top layer of Lemon-Lime Twist leaves. 

04.24.19 Sweet Storybook 2The second sample is opened a bit more to allow you to see the “double Z”.  Matching dies allow for easy cutting of the mice and leaves.  The large mushroom is stamped and colored with Stampin’ Blends in Poppy Parade and Melon Mango.  The mice are stamped in black and can be colored with stamps or with Stampin’ Blends.  I found it easier to color with the Blends; stamping the color needs to be quite exacting.  The sentiment can be stamped under the Melon Mango “Z”. The card lays flat when fully open.  

Isn’t this card the perfect way to tell a friend how wonderful they are.  This would be such a pick-me-up to receive in the mail!  As a reminder, May Stamp Camp is scheduled for Thursday May 2nd from 12 N – 6 PM, Friday May 3rd from 2 – 6 PM, and Saturday May 4th from 9 AM – 4 PM.  As always, if dates/times don’t work for you, please contact me and we can schedule an alternate time. 

It’s very helpful if you would let me know which day you are coming and which cards you would like to do.  This allows me to have enough of the cards cut that you might choose to do. 

Hope to see you at May Stamp Camp!
