It’s Tea Time!

Tea Together and Tea Time Framelits from Stampin Up

I have to confess that if given the choice between coffee and tea, I will choose coffee every time.

But as a kid, I remember that on Sundays after church we were allowed to drink tea. There was at least as much milk as there was tea in the cup but it was still a big deal.

And tea cup stamps hold a special memory for me as well. The very first card I ever stamped used a tea cup stamp. It will be twenty years in May but I still remember the feeling of accomplishment. I was so proud of that card and amazed that I had made it. I had no idea where my newfound love of paper crafting would take me over the next two decades.

 

During Sale-a-Bration, the Tea Time Framelits are free with a $120 pre-tax and shipping order. And you’ll want to make sure that your order includes the Tea Together stamp set that coordinates with the framelits. 

Mix and match tea cups and teapots with different sized flowers to create elegant cards. Included in the stamp set are three greetings including Happy Mother’s Day.

Tea Time Framelits and Team Together Stamps

I stamped the small flower from the Tea Together stamp set three times onto Watercolor Paper with the Memento Tuxedo Black ink and let dry for a minute or two. Them using an Aqua Painter filled with water, I picked ink up from the stamp pad lids. To prevent the colors from becoming muddy, allow each color to dry before adding the next. As an example. I colored all the flower center in Daffodil Delight and then the leaves in Lemon Lime Twist.  Once the leaves and centers were dry, I colored the flowers – one each in Flirty Flamingo, Calypso Coral and Balmy Blue.

Butterfly Gala Framed! Another Rectangle Stitched Framelits Card

Butterfly Gala By Stampin Up

The weather here says winter but these butterflies definitely says spring!

The Gingham Gala Suite features Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove, Highland Heather and Lemon Lime Twist. Included in the suite are the Gingham Gala 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper, Adhesive Backed Sequins, Cardstock Pack and a Sale-a-bration freebie, the co-ordinating Organdy Ribbon Comb Pack

But the outstanding part of this suite is the Butterfly Gala Bundle. A matching stamp set and duet punch make creating effortless. And at only $45.75 for the punch and 18 image stamp set, it’s a bargain, too.

Grab the bundle, the designer series paper and free ribbon pack and start making clean and simple cards that will make you forget all about the temperature outside.

 

Butterfly Gala with Stampin Blends

I coloured the butterflies with the Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack. I find these markers so easy to use. And don’t forget that the Blends can also be used to colour the Pearls and Rhinestones. For this card,  I used my Basic Black Blends on the various sized pearls.

 

Don’t forget that during Sale-A-Bration, you can receive a free Level 1 product for every $60 spent before tax and shipping. Choose from the butterfly coordinating items below or view all the products here.

Butterfly Duet Punch by Stampin Up

I love all the different layers and levels on this card. By adding a few dimensionals, I attached the frame and the greeting to the card with some added height. I’m a big fan of the Mini Dimensionals and their smaller size.

Layering has never been simpler

I am loving the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies. Create layers simply and accurately with the Big Shot and these dies in very little time.

The dies come in cascading sizes that layer together for lots of different looks or use just one for the card base or an accent piece. You can also create frames for your cards in no time.

I made this card with the Needle & Thread and Needlepoint Elements Framelits Dies. One of my favourite pieces in the framelits is the paper piercing design I used on the background. Instead of cutting out the image the die makes small holes for a truly unique design.

The colours used on this card are Poppy Parade and Pear Pizzazz.

If the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies are not on your wish list, add them now. Right at the top. Trust me.

 

I was able to use new accessories on this card – the Old Olive Linen Thread and Gingham Gala Sequins in addition to the Pearls.  And don’t forget to include the Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper for even more creative options.
