Thank You - Cup of Tea - Set of 2 Cards

Thank You - Cup of Tea - Set of 2 Cards


Hello and welcome back to my blog! Today I have a couple of cards using the Cup of Tea bundle with different coloured card bases. I was inspired by The Crafty Carrot Co's use of the Cup of Tea bundle this month. I have a reel showing how I made this so make sure to visit my Instagram page HERE.

Instructions:

- Use Garden Green or Daffodil Delight A4 card cut in half lengthwise and folded for the card base. Layer with the Tea Boutique DSP and a piece of Basic White that has been embossed with the Hive Embossing Folder and had So Saffron ink applied to it with a Blending Brush.

- Stamp the flowers and leaves with Fresh Freesia and Parakeet Party inks respectively. Die cut or fussy cut these pieces out and set aside. Die cut lemon pieces using Daffodil Delight and So Saffron card. Adhere the various stamped and die cut pieces to the card.

- Stamp the sentiment from the 'Cup of Tea' stamp set using Fresh Freesia ink onto Basic White card. Add the sentiment to a strip of Fresh Freesia card and then attach to the front of the card. Add some 2022-2024 In Colour Matte Decorative Dots.

Hello and welcome back to my blog! Today's card is for Global Design Project's #GDP349 Colour Challenge . This week we have a fun colour challenge and the colours are so bright and summery using Tahitian Tide, Daffodil Delight and Parakeet Party.

For my card today I used the Happiness Abounds Bundle, the Tea Boutique Cards & Envelopes, Stampin' Blends and the 2022-2024 In Colour Matte Decorative Dots.

- Use one of the Tahitian Tide Tea Boutique Cards & Envelopes. Mat with a piece of Basic White and then another layer of Basic White which has had Tahitian Tide ink blended and splattered onto it.

- Stamp the flowers and leaves from the Happiness Abounds stamp set onto Basic White card using Tuxedo Black ink and use the Blossoming Happiness Dies to die cut all the pieces. Colour with the challenge colours Stampin' Blends (Tahitian Tide, Daffodil Delight and Parakeet Party). Layer onto each other and adhere to the front of the card.

Sending Hugs - Splendid Thoughts & Perfectly Penciled - Just Add Flowers - JAI609

Sending Hugs - Splendid Thoughts & Perfectly Penciled - Just Add Flowers - JAI609


Hello again and welcome back to my blog! This card is one I have created for Just Add Ink. This week's challenge is actually one I suggested but it is not my usual week to join in and therefore I am late at having a card ready for you. 

This week's challenge is the Just Add Ink #JAI609 - Just Add Flowers Challenge . This week's challenge involves one of my favourite themes which is flowers (is that really a surprise? - lol). I used the Perfectly Penciled DSP with the Splendid Thoughts stamp set for the sentiment, Stitched Greenery Die and some ink blending and colouring with Stampin' Blends.



Instructions:

- Use a piece of Sahara Sand A4 card cut lengthwise and folded in half. Layer with a piece of Basic White which has been die cut with the Stitched Greenery Die. Ink blend Pool Party, Coastal Cabana and Orchid Oasis onto a piece of Basic White and trim down to size. Splatter with Wink of Stella and Coastal Cabana ink and attach to the card.

- Fussy cut the Perfectly Penciled DSP and colour with Stampin' Blends (Petal Pink, Pale Papaya, Flirty Flamingo, Fresh Freesia, Mint Macaron, Tahitian Tide).  

- Stamp the sentiment from the Splendid Thoughts stamp set onto Basic White using Coastal Cabana ink and attach to the card. Add some Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card.

Artisan Design Team - Corporate Post - Fresh Cut Flowers

Artisan Design Team - Corporate Post - Fresh Cut Flowers


Hello and welcome to my blog! I am so excited to be sharing my Corporate Post for Stampin' Up!® today using the Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set which is on page 65 in the 2022-2023 Annual Catalogue. This bundle appeals to my love of flower stamp sets and I used some of my favourite colours (as you know Polished Pink is a must).

To view this project fully, don't forget to visit the Stampin' Up!® Corporate Facebook Page.

The Fresh Cut Flowers stamp set is a standalone set without sentiments and is a particularly versatile set as you can use it with almost any sentiment. The delicate florals in the set are perfect for creating anything from a simple tag to a lush floral garden on your card.

I also used the Forever Flourishing Dies to add more depth and foliage to the flowers on the projects as well as the Tailor Made Tags and Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder and Full of Love stamp set for the sentiment.


Here are the products I used for these cards. See the links below if you would like to shop my store.


Hello there:

- I used Smoky Slate card for the base, with Polished Pink embossed with the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder. Apply Whisper White ink using a sponge dauber to add an interesting textural element.

- Stamp the images using Smoky Slate ink onto Basic White card and fussy cut all the images out. Colour with Stampin' Blends and accentuate the flowers and leaves with Watercolour pencils. Layer the images over leaves cut from the Distressed Gold Specialty Paper using the Forever Flourishing Dies.

- Stamp the sentiment from the Full of Love stamp set using Versamark ink on Smoky Slate card and heat emboss with White Stampin' Emboss Powder. Use For Everything Fancy Sequins and Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to add some additional bling. Tie Simply Elegant Trim to create a bow for the floral bunch.

TIP: The Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder adds an interesting textural element to the card, Apply a drop of Whisper White Refill with a Sponge Dauber to enhance the texture of the embossed piece.


Sending Love Your Way:

- I used Smoky Slate card for the base, with Basic White and Pale Papaya for the layers. Stamp the florals from the Fresh Cut Flowers set onto the Pale Papaya layer using Pale Papaya Ink to create a background tone on tone look.

- Stamp the florals from the Fresh Cut Flowers set onto Basic White card using Smoky Slate ink and fussy cut out. Colour the images with Stampin' Blends and Watercolour Pencils including the florals and leaves stamped on the Pale Papaya layer.

- Add some For Everything Fancy Sequins, Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels and some more leaves die cut using the Forever Flourishing Dies with Distressed Gold Specialty Paper. 

TIP: Colour your Fresh Cut Flowers floral images with both light and dark shades of Stampin' Blends. Use Watercolour Pencils to add more colour to the stamped images as well as to create unique colour combinations and add dimension.
