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.

More Coordination

With it being the last month of Sale-a-Bration you would expect a non-eventful month right?  Not exactly because Stampin’ Up! has released their Sale-a-Bration Coordination products.  If you like the Sale-a-Bration products, then you will see that these are some wonderful products that coordinate with the current Sale-a-Bration catalog products.  

WOW!  The Hop Around Framelits sold out in record time.  Therefore, I encourage you to not delay and place your order as soon as possible.  You do not want to miss out on framelits to coordinate with your Sale-a-Bration stamp sets.

Since Framelits are my favorite, I’m very excited about these new products.  So get out your Big Shot and have fun with these new Framelits.  If you have not been able to decide on what Sale-a-Bration products you may like, maybe these new products will help you.  You can also visit my online store here to check them out.  Let me know if you have any questions. 

Thanks for stopping by!  Next week, we’re Celebrating Birthdays in the monthly card class so I’ll be sharing samples of some fun birthday cards in my next post.

Selling Out Fast

We have some more products that are selling out fast at Stampin’ Up!.  They are so popular and Stampin’ Up! just did not expect the volume of orders they have received.  The Lovely Lipstick and Grapefruit Grove foil sheets and Precious Parcel card kit are going fast.  They are still available but I fear not for long.  These products are going so fast that they may not be available through the entire Sale-A-Bration period.

Grapefruit Grove & Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets (item 149712)
Precious Parcel Card Kit (item 149750)

It would be a good idea to act on this fast.  If you are still interested in these items, visit my online store and earn these products soon.

Card Featuring the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper

A card featuring the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper was a design in the All About Butterflies class.  The paper is in the current Sale-A-Bration brochure and you can select it for FREE with a $50 purchase.  This is one of my favorite papers.  Best of all, several of the butterfly designs coordinate with the Butterfly Duet Punch, therefore, no fussy cutting.  Since the Designer Series Paper (DSP) is a double-sided design, options for color combinations is endless.

First, I want to share the inspiration card.  The 4″ x 4″ card was received from Patty Bennett.  The combination of papers adds to the beauty of the card.  You will notice that the only stamping is the sentiment.  Since the technique is primarily paper layering, it is a simple design.  Using her design layout, I made a standard 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ card to use for one of the class projects.   

Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper

Now for the class card:

Card Featuring Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper

Notice how well the Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper coordinates with the black and white design on the Botanical Butterfly DSP.  As you compare the designs, note the slight variations such as the different ribbon and no embossing on the vellum.  However, the layout design is the same.  Details for creating the class card are below.

Card Directions:

Cut cardstock and paper as follows:

  • Thick Whisper White cardstock: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″
  • Botanical Butterfly DSP – Black & white butterfly print: 5-1/4″ x 4″; 1″ x 4″
  • Botanical Butterfly DSP – Select desired colored butterfly and punch or fussy cut one butterfly 
  • Daffodil Delight cardstock: 4-1/4″ x 3″
  • Gingham Gala DSP: 4″ x 2-3/4″
  • Vellum cardstock: 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″
  • Whisper White:  2″ x 2-1/2″ for sentiment
  1. Score Thick Whisper White at 4-1/4″ and fold to create the card base.
  2. Using Snail Adhesive, attach the larger piece of Botanical Butterfly DSP to the card base.
  3. Adhere the Gingham Gala DSP to the Daffodil Delight cardstock.  Center and attach the 1″ x 4″ strip of the Botanical Butterfly DSP to the Gingham Gala DSP layer. With the 2-1/4″ circle punch, cut the vellum cardstock.  Attach to circle the center of the yellow layer piece.
  4. Wrap Daffodil Delight Ribbon around the yellow layer piece and tie a side knot.  Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach to the card.  Notice the ribbon this card, it is from the Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack in the Sale-a-Bration brochure and is another FREE item with qualifying purchase.  Due to it’s popularity, it has sold out.  It is on reorder and will be available again in early March and only while supplies last.  
  5. Stamp the sentiment using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  The sentiment chosen is from the Beauty Abounds Stamp Set in the Occasions Catalog.  After stamping, use the Pretty Label punch to cut the shape.  Position as shown on the card above and attach with adhesive.
  6. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the colored butterfly to the center of the card and atop the vellum.  Optional: Use a Black Stampin’ Write Marker to hand draw the butterfly antennae.  
  7. Complete embellishing the card using the Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins.  
Reminder:  

Sale-A-Bration is for a limited time.  Be sure to place an order of $50 so you can select the paper before the promotion ends and ends on March 31, 2019.
