Get the most out of your stamps by learning new techniques!

“Rose Wonder” Stamp set and “Rose Garden Thinlit Dies“
Have been happily playing with my new products and made this card for my friend Meg’s birthday. She is one of those lucky or unlucky people to have a birthday on New Years Day, so can be over looked with all the celebrations happening.
The Beautiful papers and Framelits make for a quick easy card.
My base card is Pink Pirouette cut at 21cm x 15cm and folded in half. I embossed the Whisper White (14.5cm x 10cm ) with the Spring Flowers Embossing Folder. (retired)
I adhered a 5cm x 10cm strip DSP from Birthday Bouquet DSP to the Whisper White card stock. Using the same but different patterned DSP I cut out the Tea pot and the cup with the Cup and Kettle Framelits Die. I then cut the handles from the cup to make a sugar bowl and added gold from the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to the tea pot handle, the spout and the base of the sugar bowl.
I used the Pink Pirouette CS for the spoon and heart also from the Cup and Kettle Framelit Die.
The kettle was adhered to a circle of Pool Party CS and glued to the DSP. I popped the the sugar bowl up with dimensionals and inserted the spoon in place. I touched up the heart for a bit of glisten with the Clear Wink of Stella. Just LOVE these little guys, so easy to use and so pretty.
Finally I stamped the greeting in Memento black from Sunburst SayingsStamp Set. They just fit perfectly into the tag from the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits Die and it looks like a tea bag top I think.
Inside I used the “There’s always time for Tea stamp” and “and spending time with you” stamp to complete. Hope she likes it!
Remember 6 more days and these lovely products can be ordered by you too!
I can feel the excitement building, one day to go before orders can be placed from the new Stampin’Up Catalog.
I know you have your catalogs and are eager to get creating with some of the exciting products on display. Over at Vickie’s blog she has created some lovely cards with the new colors and stamps. Pop over and see after you have looked at my offering with the Sprinkles of Life StampSet and two of the 2015/16 colors.
What a great way to help Ronald McDonald House Charities. On the news the other night they showed the new fantastic building going up next to the children’s hospital in Brisbane that is in need of more funding so get behind them with this stamp set.
I have chosen to limit myself to two colors, Tip Top Taupe and Cucumber Crush. What about the white you say, well according to my son when he was 6, years ago, in his “I’m right”, voice which he often was, it’s a shade called Whisper White. The Internet will agree and disagree but I like to remember him when I’m using black or white.
It is a simple layout with the background paper from Irresistibly Yours DSP sponged in the Tip Top Taupe Ink. One scalloped 8cm circle in Cucumber Crush and one 7cm in Whisper White, which were popped up with dimensionals provided the resting place for the tree.
This tree, after stamping from the Sprinkles of Life Stamp Set was punched with the Tree Builder Punch.
Sentiment was from the Simply Wonderful Stamp Set and stamped on Whisper White Card Stock then cut with the Chalk Talk Framelits with the Big Shot. The under mount, in Tip Top Taupe was created with the same framelit cut half way, then the framelit reversed, put through the Big Shot again, cut half way to create the other end.
A pretty bow with Organza Ribbon, topped with the little bird from the Tree Builder Punch, attached with sticky dots helped fill the card.
I Stamped the sentiment and the Tree from the Sprinkles of Life Stamp set inside and the card was complete.
Till next time Happy Crafting.
PS: In case you were were wondering, the scallop was die cut using KaiserCraft Scallop Nesting Die
