Tea Together - Crackle Paint

This is a card I designed with the Tea Together stamp set and Crackle Paint Background stamp, both in the 2019 Occasions Catalog as well as the Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The Tea Time Framelit goes with the Tea Together but not as a bundle.  However, it can be earned FREE with a $100 order.  I also used the Layering Ovals in the Annual Catalog.  Although, Mother's Day is not until May, this stamp set includes the sentiment so it would make a lovely card for a mother.

Here are my instructions for my card:




1.     The card base is Highland Heather cardstock cut at 4-1/4” x 11” and scored at 5-1/2” in the middle.

2.    The second layer is Whisper White cardstock cut at 4” x 5-1/4” and layered onto the front of card.

3.    The third layer is Old Olive cardstock cut at 3-3/4” x 5” and layered onto the front of the card.

4.    The fourth layer is Vellum cardstock cut at 3-1/2” x 4-3/4” and attached with Glue Dots to the front of the card.

5.    The tea pitcher stamp is inked up with Gorgeous Grape on Whisper White cardstock and then ink up the Crackle Paint stamp with Gorgeous Grape ink and ink up the pitcher.

6.    Ink up the rose with Memento Black and die cut both pitcher and rose with the Tea Time Framelit Dies.

7.    Use the Stamping Blends to color in the Pitcher and the rose.

8.    Attach the rose to the pitcher with Dimensionals.

9.    Put Dimensionals on the back of the pitcher and attach to the upper center of the card.

10.  Ink up “Happy Mother’s Day” sentiment with Gorgeous Grape ink on Whisper White cardstock.  Die cut it out with an oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits and a Highland Heather oval the next size up so the two can be layered together and attached with a Dimensional at the bottom of the card.

Dear Doily with Flowers


The Dear Doily stamp set in the 2019 Occasions catalog is a favorite of mine, but I hadn't tried using the flowers yet, so decided I would make a card using them today.

3.    Cut Whisper White cardstock at 2-3/4” x 4-1/4”.  Die cut a large doily with the Doily Builder Thinlet Dies from scrap cardstock and layer over Whisper White cardstock.  Holding doily in place as a mask and sponge Gorgeous Grape ink over the doily.  Remove doily.  Layer onto a 3” x 4-1/2” of Gorgeous Grape cardstock.

4.    Using the Stampin’ Markers on the flower stamp (Pear Pizzazz for the leaves and stem; Gorgeous Grape for the flowers).  Huff on them and stamp scrap of Whisper White cardstock.  Die cut three of them out with the Doily Builder Thinlets Dies.

5.    Using Mini Dimensionals adhere over the sponged doily.

6.    Ink up the sentiment with Gorgeous Grape ink and stamp on Whisper White cardstock.  Punch out with the 1-1/4” Circle Punch.  Punch a scallop circle punch from Gorgeous Grape cardstock with the 1-3/8” Scallop Circle Punch.  Layer together with Multipurpose Glue.  Add Dimensionals to the back and adhere to the front of the card.

7.    Die cut a Gorgeous Grape bow with the Doily Builder Thinlets.

Butterfly Gala - Mango Melody

Glad to be through the cold month of January and time to creating cards for Valentine's but first I had to make one more card with the butterflies because I enjoyed the blue one I made yesterday.  This time I used Mango Melody which is a color I'd never really used.  I also used the Stampin' Blends Mango Melody to color in my butterflies.
Here are my complete instructions:
1.     The base of my card is Mango Melody cardstock cut at 4-1/4” x 11” and scored at 5-1/2” in the middle.
2.    The second layer is Whisper White cardstock cut at 4” x 5-1/4” and layered onto the base card with adhesive.
3.    The third layer is Basic Black cardstock cut at 3-3/4” x 5” and inserted into the Subtle TIEF in the Big Shot.
4.    The banner is 2” x 5” cut from the Botanical Butterfly DSP and use the Banner Triple Punch at one end.  Glue onto the center of the Basic Black cardstock.
5.    Wrap the 5/8” Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon around the Basic Black cardstock and layer the ¼” Striped Black/Silver Ribbon over it.  Tape it back with Scotch tape.  Attach to the front of the card with adhesive.
6.    Ink up the sentiment with Memento Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock and die cut it with the Stitched Shapes Oval.   Die cut a scallop from Mango Melody cardstock.  Layer together with adhesive.
7.    Ink up the butterflies with Memento Black ink and stamp on Whisper White cardstock.  Color them in with the Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends.  Use the Butterfly Duet Punch to punch them out and attach the small butterfly with a Glue Dot and large butterfly with Snail and a Dimensional at an angle.
