Hello! Today’s card features products from the beautiful Parisian Blossoms suite and is another card that we recently made in my Valentine’s Day class. This is such an elegant suite of products, so soft looking and pretty too!
Here is how I made the card.
Card base – cut piece of Petal Pink cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″, score and fold in half.
Cut 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of paper from the Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series papers and adhere to cardbase.
Stamp blossom image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on piece of Whisper White cardstock. Color image with Stampin’ Blends. I used Petal Pink and Cherry Cobbler Blends for the flowers and Soft Sea Foam Blends for the leaves. Die cut with coordinating die from the Cherry Blossoms Dies set.
Stamp the “love” sentiment with Cherry Cobbler ink on a small scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock. Cut heart image with one of the elongated dies from the Stitched Be Mine Dies, pictured on page 195 in the Annual Catalog.
Die cut large Petal Pink scalloped heart frame from the Stitched Be Mine Die set. You can save the heart piece from the inside of the frame for use in another project.
To finish off the front of the card, use either Multipurpose Liquid Glue or the Fine Tip Glue Pen to add adhesive to the scalloped heart and adhere to card. Center the heart with the “love” greeting inside the frame and adhere. Position the floral piece along the left side of the frame and adhere.
For the inside of the card, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Cut piece of Parisian Blossoms DSP at 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to left side. Stamp the two sentiments from the Forever Blossoms stamp set with Cherry Cobbler ink and adhere piece to card.
I love tea! I’m a lifelong tea drinker so every time Stampin’ Up! comes out with a tea-themed stamp set, I have to have it! I was so happy to see the Tea Room Suite in the 2018-2019 annual catalog and as nice as the images in the stamp set are, when I laid eyes on the Tea Together stamp set in the 2019 Occasions catalog, I was even more excited because these images are what I think of when I think of afternoon tea or tea parties – oh so lovely and feminine!
Last week I held a class with tea-themed projects using these products along with the Tea Time Framelits Dies, which is a Sale-A-Bration item that you can get for free with a $100 purchase. I was delighted to learn that these dies will be carried over into the 2019-2020 annual catalog! Today I am featuring the first of two cards using the Tea Together and Tea Time products and will post my other projects next week. I CASEd one of the cards shown on page 49 in the Occasions catalog for this project.
Here is how I made the card.
Card base – cut a piece of Crushed Curry cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2 ” and fold in half.
Using the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper, select one of the 3 1/2″ x 5″ designs and trim with the Stampin’ Trimmer. Note that one side of the paper is Whisper White and the other is Very Vanilla so you can choose either side.
Cut a piece of the large Crushed Curry floral patterned paper from the Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper at 3 1/2″ x 5″ and adhere to the laser-cut piece.
Stamp the teapot from the Tea Together stamp set on watercolor paper with black StazOn ink. Stamp flowers onto the teapot. I stamped three flowers but you can also do one or two – your preference!
Watercolor the teapot using an aqua painter and Calypso Coral ink. For the flowers and leaves I used a blender pen, which I found to give more depth of color. I used Crush Curry ink for the flowers and Garden Green for the leaves. Stamp greeting on watercolor paper with black StazOn ink.
Die cut the teapot using the coordinating die from the Tea Time Framelits. Die cut greeting using the one of the hearts from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies
Tie a piece of Old Olive linen thread around laser-cut piece. I wrapped the thread around the piece twice before tying the bow. Add pearls to centers of flowers. Attach this piece to card base and then attach the teapot and heart greeting.
