It’s Time for a Nice Cuppa Thank You Card

A Nice Cuppa, Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit

Hello, Stampers! Have time for A Nice Cuppa Tea? I love this stamp set and there’s just no way I can say it without hearing my mom. Oh, the memories! Between the china cups that were only for hot tea when I was growing up and my husband and children finding every tea shop wherever we go on vacation, I knew that this one had to be mine! And the framelits just make it twice as nice!! I wanted to combine it with the Love Blossoms DSP and Embellishment Kit to get that look of an old English Tea Room.

It’s All in the Details

  •  The card started out with Mint Macaron cardstock in A2 dimensions.
  • The DSP was cut and layered onto Whisper White cardstock.
  • Mint Macaron Dotted Lace Trim and Whisper White Satin Ribbon were wrapped around the DSP layer and all were secured to the card base.
  • I used the heart from the Embellishment Kit but decided to turn it to the white side instead of the gold foil.
  • The cute cup was cut twice, once in the Mint Macaron floral pattern from the 2015-2017 In Color DSP Stack (this item was accidentally left out of the list below) and again in Mint Macaron cardstock so I could cut off the handle.
  • I cut a small length of white baker’s twine and adhered it to the back, The cute little label was stamped and fussy cut, then the interior was colored with the Blushing Bride marker. I threaded the “must-have” little tea pot onto the baker’s twine, then popped everything up with dimensionals.
  • The Blushing Bride satin ribbon is absolutely gorgeous – might be buying more kits just for this! Once the bow was made and glued down, the Finishing Touch was the little enamel dots from the kit onto the heart and ribbon. A Nice Cuppa, One Big Meaning
  • Here is a photo of the inside of the card.

It’s All Snuggles & Smooches for RRCB31

RRCB31

Hello, Stampers! I hope you had a chance to see the gallery of wonderful cards from the last challenge and congratulations to the winners! It’s time to go to the next challenge and our color challenge is perfect for this time of year. It is perfect for Valentine’s Day which is right around the corner. I have done what few Valentine cards I need for this year but I am now in our anniversary season. I made this card with Snuggles & Smooches, which was a promotional stamp set that Stampin’ Up! introduced back in 2014. I have seen some really cute cards done with it but it hadn’t seen much ink from me at all. Yikes! It was time to change that.

Snuggles & Smooches, Valentines

It’s All in the Details

  • Thick Whisper White cardstock was used to make the A2 card base.
  • I used Pink Pirouette cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot in the Happy Heart TIEF and layered it onto Real Red.
  • Whisper White cardstock, cut at 2 3/4″ x 3 1/4,” was stamped with Real Red and Pink Pirouette ink with the smaller flower stamp. Then, Real Red cardstock was used to layer underneath. The Whisper White Organza Ribbon was wrapped around the cardstock before it was adhered to the card base. More Organza Ribbon (6″) was tied around the ribbon and a small piece of Silver Sequin Trim was glued underneath.
  • The larger flower stamp was inked in Real Red and fussy cut and popped up with dimensionals.
  • The heart stamp was inked in Real Red. I used my discontinued Blendies in Pink Pirouette to color then punched it out with the Sweetheart Punch. It was adhered to the card with dimensionals.
  • The adorable sentiment from the Label Card Thinlits Die set was run through the Big Shot twice using Real Red and the heart was snipped out of the second one. It was popped up with a dimensional and then lightly covered with Wink of Stella.
  • The Finished Touch was adding Designer Buttons in Real Red and Basic Black and topped with a pearl.
