Coordinating Tea

Creating projects that have a special place in your heart is always fun.  I love the Tea Together stamp set and coordinating Tea Time Framelits with it.  Tea time with family and friends is always a special time.  Why not put those memories into your cards.  It’s even better when you can earn the Framelits from the Sale-a-Bration catalog.  The stamp set is available in the Occasions Catalog.  I love that there are coordinating products you can earn for free.  You can see Chad below show you the Tea Time Framelits Dies and a few samples made with them.

The Tea Time Framelits Dies includes the nine framelits shown below.


You can visit my online store here and pick up the framelits with a qualifying order through March 31st.

Featuring Needlepoint Nook

In an earlier post this week, the Needlepoint Nook bundle was introduced to you.  Today, I am featuring the Needlepoint Nook bundle in three different cards.  The Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper is especially highlighted.  The detail of the designer series paper is amazing!  You are able to see the individual embroidery strands of the stitches.  With such detail, it makes creating cards simple since the paper can be the feature element.  

Helpful Hints:

As you look at the samples, notice the first two from the left are very simple cards.  The pink card really features the paper with just a ribbon tie and a stamped sentiment added.  This card is perfect for the beginning stamper or anyone needing a quick to make card.  To create the sentiment, first use the Needlepoint Elements Framelits Die to emboss embroidery stitching on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Next you will stamp the sentiment into the center of the embossed piece.  Lastly, cut the shape using the coordinating Pretty Label Punch.

The blue butterfly card includes a “tuxedo” fold to add interest to the card front.  The double-sided designer series paper is great since the reverse design coordinates perfectly.  To create the “tuxedo” look, mark the midpoint of the designer series paper. For the sample above, the designer series paper is 5-1/4″ x 4″ so the midpoint is 2″ from right edge and 2-9/16″ from top (the Stampin’ Trimmer is the perfect tool to use!).  After marking the midpoint, cut from the midpoint to the right edge.  Fold back the flaps to create the “tuxedo” collar.  After folding, attach the designer series paper to a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of whisper white cardstock. 

The far right sample is good transition card for a beginning stamper to build upon their skills.  The layered embellishment and sentiment are stamped using colors that coordinate with the paper.  With the Needlepoint Elements Dies it is easy to cut the shapes.  To add more visual interest, snip between each strand of the Flax Ribbon and separate the strands.  

Remember for a 10% savings, order the Needle & Thread Bundle.  The bundle includes the Needle & Thread Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Needlepoint Elements Dies.  

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy crafting…

“How Sweet It Is” Sweet Treats

Today, I am sharing a variety of sweet treats highlighting the How Sweet It Is product suite.  I love the bright, colorful prints in the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper.  What makes it even better is the Jar of Sweets Framelits Dies perfectly match some of the candy jar images.  Plus the coordinating Sweetest Thing photopolymer stamp set offers more project options.  The stamps and dies are in the Sweetest Thing Bundle.

The design inspiration for the sample cards is from the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper. Coordinating cardstock colors are used for sample cards.  Each card measures is a 4″ x 4″square.  The sentiments on each card are from the Sweetest Thing stamp set.

Sweet Cup

One of the fun products in the suite is the package of Sweet Cups.  The sweet cups are perfect to package treats or small gifts.  To cover the cup base, create a template by tracing a deconstructed cup or contact me for a template!  Use cup template to cut a piece of the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper.  Wrap the paper around the cup base and attach with strong adhesive.   A coordinating piece of designer series paper is cut using the largest circle from the Layering Circles Dies (in the Annual Catalog).  

Notice the sweet cup lid?  The candy jar is standing upright.  It’s easy to do.  First, select the jar shape from the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper.  Then cut the jar with the matching framelit from Jar of Sweets Framelits Dies.  Next, cut a slit in the middle of the large circle designer series paper and slip the base of the jar into the slit.  Bend the base to create a tab to hold the jar upright.  Attach to the sweet cup lid using strong adhesive.  To complete the embellishment, use the Sweet Pins & Tags accessory kit and Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8″ reversible ribbon to add the finishing touches. 

This is a fun suite and the bright colors are wonderful for creating cheerful projects.  You can place your order via my online store and be sure to contact me for the Sweet Cup template!
