Tea Boutique Cards & Envelopes

Hello!

I took another short break from blogging while I was on vacation last week in Savannah, Georgia. It is such a beautiful and historic city! I did a few on & off trolley tours, walked my feet off in the historic district, went on a fun evening ghost tour, walked along the riverfront and ate way too much good food! Here are just a few of the many pictures I took.

Here are two cards we made at my stamping club last month that I hadn’t posted. They use the Cup of Tea Bundle and the coordinating Tea Boutique Cards & Envelopes. The Cards & Envelopes include four each of the five new In Colors and are a quick way to make cards without having to cut and score cardstock for the bases, and the coordinating envelopes are very pretty! There are 20 card bases and 20 envelopes in the package, which at $10.00 is a great value!

Here is how to make the cards.

  • Select one of the card bases from the pack. I used the Starry Sky and Parakeet Party bases for these cards.
  • Cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 3 1/2″ square and run through die cutting machine with the largest circle from the Stylish Shapes dies. Adhere to card base.
  • Cut a piece of In Color cardstock at 2″x 2 1/2″. Stamp teacup image with coordinating ink and cut out with teacup die.
  • Cut a 2″ wide strip of Basic White cardstock. Stamp striped teacup image and run through die cutting machine. Using the same strip of cardstock, cut out a solid white teacup with the die. On the remaining piece of cardstock, cut a piece of an adhesive sheet and adhere. Run through the die cutting machine with the leaf teacup die. Adhere to solid white teacup. Adhere all three teacups as pictured.
  • To make the lemon, run a scrap piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock through the die cutting machine with the solid lemon die. On another scrap of Daffodil Delight, back it with an adhesive sheet and run through die cutting machine with the lemon slice die. Adhere to solid piece. Adhere to the base of the bottom teacup
  • Run scrap piece of Basic White cardstock through die cutting machine with the large tea bag die. Stamp word with coordinating ink. Die cut the heart from scrap piece of Sweet Sorbet cardstock and adhere to tea bag piece. Adhere tea bag to middle teacup.
  • Cut piece of coordinating 1/8″ metallic ribbon, tie in a bow and adhere to handle of the white teacup with a glue dot.

Pictured here are three different sets of cards and envelopes currently available in the
2022-2023 Annual Catalog

Sending Smiles Fun Fold

Hello!

Today’s card is a fun fold that pairs the Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper with the Sending Smiles bundle in the new annual catalog. This is another project we made in my recent card club. I love working with black & white Designer Series Papers and never miss an opportunity to purchase them when a new set appears in a catalog. They sure do make the contrasting colors pop!

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base: Cut a piece of Tahitian Tide cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. Cut a piece of paper from the Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper at 5 1/4″ x 12 and score at 2″, 4″, 6″ 8″. Fold and crease along score lines. Adhere to card base.
  • Cut two pieces of Polished Pink cardstock at 3″ x 4 1/2″ and run through die cutting machine with the fourth largest Stitched Rectangle die.
  • Cut two pieces of Basic White cardstock at 2 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ and run through die cutting machine with the fifth largest Stitched Rectangle die.
  • Using the Sending Smiles stamp set, on the first piece of cardstock stamp the large leaf image with Parakeet Party ink. Stamp one large flower and one smaller flower with Tahitian Tide ink. Stamp the centers of the flowers with Daffodil Delight ink. On the second piece of cardstock stamp the smaller leaf image with Parakeet Party ink and stamp the flower with Tahitian Tide ink. Stamp the large flower center with Daffodil Delight ink. Stamp greeting with Tuxedo Black Memento ink at top of piece. Adhere both pieces to the Polished Pink pieces.
  • Cut one piece of Basic White cardstock at 3″ x 4 1/2″. Run piece through die cutting machine with the fourth largest Stitched Rectangle die. Stamp the leafy flower image with Polished Pink ink several times across the bottom of the piece, staggering the heights. Stamp greeting at top of card with Memento ink.
  • Adhere first stamped image piece to the front folded flap, centering it and making sure to only put adhesive on the left side of the piece. Adhere second stamped image to the middle fold, again only putting adhesive on left side of the piece. Line up the right side edges so that they are even. Adhere the third Basic White piece to the inside of the card, making sure to line it up with the two other stamped pieces so that it doesn’t stick out when the card is closed.
  • Cut a piece of Basic Black cardstock at 2″ x 4″ and run through the die cutting machine with the solid word die from the Sending Dies set. Cut a piece of Tahitian Tide cardstock at 2″ x 4″. Cut a piece of an adhesive sheet the same size and adhere to the cardstock. Run through die cutting machine with the script die. Peel off adhesive sheet backing and adhere to Basic Black die cut piece. Adhere on a diagonal to the front card panel with liquid glue.
  • Embellish card front with a few Tahitian Tide dots from the 2022-2024 Matte Decorative Dots.

Symbols of Fortune Chrysanthemum Card

Hello!

Today’s card is a fun fold card that features the gorgeous chrysanthemum flower image in the Crane of Fortune stamp set. This is part of the Symbols of Fortune Suite in the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog. This was the first Suite I purchased when the catalog went live and while I’ve made a number of cards using products from the suite, I haven’t had a chance to post any of them until now. This suite will be retiring at the end of June so if any of the products in the suite have been on your wish list, now is the time to purchase them.

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – cut a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″, score at 2 3/4″ and 8 1/4″. Fold and crease sharply with a bone folder.
  • Cut two pieces of the chrysanthemum paper from the Symbols of Fortune Specialty Designer Series Paper at 2 1/2″ x 4″. Cut two pieces from a different sheet of paper at 2 1/2″ x 4″. Adhere the chrysanthemum DSP strips to the front folds and the contrasting DSP strips to the inside flaps.
  • Cut a 4″ square piece of Basic White cardstock. Stamp the floral image using the direct to rubber technique. Color the flowers onto the stamp with a Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write marker. Color the leaves and stems with a Soft Succulent Stampin’ Write marker. Huff on the stamp to activate the ink and stamp onto the cardstock. This is a Distinktive stamp set, which will give you a photo realistic and beautifully shaded image. Brush image with Wink of Stella to add shimmer.
  • Cut out image with the largest scalloped die from the Hippo & Friend Die set. Note that this set of dies is now retired. You can use any other die that is similar in shape and size.
  • Stamp greeting with Evening Evergreen ink. I used one of the greetings from the Art Gallery stamp set. Embellish with three Opal Rounds.
  • Die cut a piece of Soft Succulent cardstsock with the same Hippo die and adhere to back of the stamped image.
  • Apply adhesive or liquid glue to the left side of the image and adhere to the left front flap.
  • Cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Stamp greeting from Crane of Fortune stamp set with Evening Evergreen ink. Stamp dragonfly image in upper right corner with Calypso Coral ink. Stamp leaf image with Soft Succulent ink in bottom left corner. Adhere to inside of card.

Sending Birthday Wishes

Hello!

Today’s card features the Sending Smiles Bundle from the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. This is a very versatile stamp set because it includes so many of what I would consider to be basic and most commonly used types of greetings. The floral images are easy to stamp and are sure to bring cheer! I couldn’t wait to start playing with the new In Colors and love the combination of Parakeet Party and Orchid Oasis.

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – cut a piece of Orchid Oasis cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″, fold and crease with a bone folder.
  • Cut a piece of the Parakeet Party plaid print from the 2022-2024 In Color Designer Series Paper at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to card front.
  • Cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ and run through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the next-to-largest rectangle die from the Scalloped Contours Dies.
  • Stamp the larger leaf image in the Sending Smiles stamp set on the scalloped rectangled piece with Parakeet Party ink. Stamp the two flower images with Orchid Oasis ink. Stamp the centers of the flowers with Daffodil delight ink.
  • Cut a piece of Starry Sky cardstock at 2″ x 4″ and run through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the solid “Sending” die from the Sending Dies set. Cut a piece of Orchid Oasis cardstock at 2″ x 4″. Cut a piece of an adhesive sheet the same size and adhere it to one side of the cardstock. Run through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the open script “sending” die. Peel adhesive backing off the piece and carefully adhere it to the Starry Sky piece.
  • Adhere scalloped rectangle piece to card front. Adhere the “sending” piece to the bottom of this piece with liquid glue. Adhere three Orchid Oasis 2022-2024 In Color Matte Decorative Dots to the card front.
  • Cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Stamp the birthday greeting with Starry Sky ink. Stamp the smaller leaf in the lower left corner with Parakeet Party ink. Stamp the flower with Orchid Oasis ink and stamp the inside of the flower with Daffodil Delight ink.

This is a quick and easy card to make. Give it a try with different color combinations!
