Once again, I find myself creating with the Tea Together stamp set, coupled with the Tea Time die set. When the stamp set was introduced in the Occasions catalog, I was beyond excited to discover a matching die set in the Sale-A-Bration brochure!
The theme, design, and colors were inspired by the challenge at Fusion.
And, TGIF is all about Sale-A-Bration, so I’m sharing there also.
I stamped the teacup in Black ink on Whisper White cardstock, using its die for cutting. I used the same die to cut a second teacup in patterned Vellum from Floral Romance Designer Series Paper. Then, I glued the two together, allowing the black lines to show through the vellum.
I wanted my teacup, focal point, to have some flowers, and the Tea Together stamp set had the perfect one. I stamped three flowers in Black ink on Vellum. After using its die for cutting, I colored them on the backside with Stampin’ Blends: Light & Dark Daffodil Delight, and Dark Old Olive. Then, I placed Mini-Dimensionals at their centers for a floating effect.
The background is mostly white with a card base of Thick Whisper White. This is followed by a layer of Whisper White cardstock embossed with the Quilt Top embossing folder. Next, Petal Pink cardstock with rounded corners, like the Fusion sketch, and Whisper White cardstock with matching rounded corners. I gave the white layer some Subtle Texture embossing, in both directions. The rounded corners were made with the Detailed Trio Punch, an easy way to achieve this look.
I decided early on that I wanted to use the sweet poem that’s in the Tea Together stamp set. I’ve been waiting for the perfect card front, and this was it! It stamped beautifully in Black ink, and fit the Stitched Shapes square die just right.
To coordinate with the poem, I stamped, “I’m so glad you are a part of my story,” on the inside. It’s from the Sale-A-Bration stamp set, Part of my Story, and such a beautiful thing to say to a loved one. Don’t you agree?
I decorated the envelope flap with a piece of Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper in Petal Pink. I really appreciate how Stampin’ Up! coordinates the colors.
My card is now ready to send to my older daughter.
