Tea Together & Team Time Swap Cards!



A few weeks ago I mailed 21 of these cards for a Swap I joined with some Stampin' Up! Demonstrators. We had to use Occasions & Sale-A-Bration Catalog products. My pre-order had arrived by then and I didn't know where to start so I grabbed products that coordinated from both catalogs. What is neat about the Tea Together stamp set is that you can earn the dies to cut out all of the images for FREE! If you place an order for $100, they're yours for FREE!


When getting set up for a swap of multiples like this one, I always try to set up production style so I can quickly get my layers and stamping done. My Stamparatus Tool came to the rescue! Want to see how? Let's start by taking a peek at this photo:



I wanted to find an easy way to stamp all of my tea pots so that the sentiment was in the same exact spot each time. Follow along and see what I did.


Step 1:
Cut a piece of scrap cardstock to measure 5-1/2" x 4-1/4". Center the teapot die and cut out the shape using the Big Shot Machine. See photo above.

Step 2:
Place both pieces of cardstock on the Stamparatus Tool. Position the sentiment where you would like to stamp it on the teapot and press the clear plate over the stamp to grab it:



Step 3:
Go ahead and stamp the image onto the teapot and make sure it's exactly where you want it. Leave the cardstock exactly where you have it positioned and in place with a magnet for a later step.



Step 4:
Prepare the teapots by stamping and cutting them with the dies. Here I stamped 21 of them on Balmy Blue Cardstock with Memento Black Ink. Once they were all cut out with the die, I then used the Light Balmy Blue Blends Marker to add highlights around the edges



Step 5:
Remove the scrap teapot die-cut from the center of the frame, leaving the frame on the Stamparatus Tool. Add a Balmy Blue teapot diecut inside the frame:



Step 6:
Ink the sentiment on the clear plate and stamp the sentiment on the teapot. Remove teapot and add the next one. Repeat for all die-cuts.




This is what my pile of yellow roses looked like before I glued them all:


And here are all of my "piles" of goodies for all cards!


The Gingham Gala Designer Paper and Calypso Coral 3/8" Satin Ribbon were both perfect to add to my card and I also used the Dot To Dot Embossing Folder for my Whisper White Cardstock layer:



If you would like to create a card just like this one, here are my layers and measurements:
  • Card Base: Calypso Coral Cardstock 8-1/2" x 5-1/2". Score and fold at 4-1/4".
  • Layer #2: Whisper White Cardstock 4-3/4" x 3-1/2". Emboss using the Dot To Dot Embossing Folder. Glue to card front.
  • Layer #3: Gingham Gala Designer Paper 4-3/4" x 3/4". Glue to the bottom of the Whisper White Cardstock layer.
  • Teapot: Stamp the teapot image using Memento Black Ink on Balmy Blue Cardstock. Cut out using the die. Highlight around the edges using the Light Balmy Blue Blends Marker. Stamp the sentiment in the center using Memento Black Ink. Glue teapot to card front and to the right.
  • Rose: Stamp the rose image on Daffodil Delight Cardstock using Memento Black Ink. Color the leaves using the Light Granny Apple Green Blends Marker and highlight the flower using the Light Calypso Coral Blends Marker.  Color the whole flower with Clear Wink Of Stella. Glue the rose in place using Stampin' Dimensionals, overlapping the teapot.
  • Ribbon: Cut a piece ribbon to measure about 2". Trim both ends at an angle. Fold in half using a Mini Glue Dot to hold in place in the center. Tuck and glue under the rose image.

I have just a few more photos that captured the detail of my layers:

Create with Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop!



Welcome to a Saturday Blog Hop at Create with Connie & Mary. I have a really cute card today to show you. Our theme is "Love Me Tender" and it think this card fits the theme quite well!


I have quite a few new products on my card today from the Occasions Catalog. Those products include:
  • Meant To Be stamp set
  • Be Mine Stitched Thinlits Dies
  • All My Love Designer Paper
The addition of the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls on the background was perfect to coordinate with the colors I used for my card.


Card Recipe:
  • Card Base: Thick Whisper White Cardstock 11" x 4-1/4". Score and fold at 5-1/2".
  • Layer #2: All My Love Designer Paper 5-1/2" x 2". On the bottom of the 2" side, use a pencil to mark off 1". Start at the top at the 2" end and cut down to the 1" mark to create and angled cut. Glue to the left side of the card base.
  • Layer #3: Pool Party Cardstock strip 6" long. Use the scalloped die to cut the length. Trim the scallop shape to about 1/4" wide. Glue beside the designer paper layer. Trim to fit.
  • Hearts: Cut the detail heart with the die and Merry Merlot Cardstock. Stamp the heart image using Merry Merlot Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. Use the die to cut the heart. Cut a 2nd heart using Petal Pink Cardstock. Glue the frame only of the Petal Pink heart to card front. Glue the stamped heart inside the Petal Pink frame. Glue the Merry Merlot heart layered over the stamped heart.
  • Rose: Use the rose die-cut over Flirty Flamingo Cardstock and cut. Glue layered over the hearts.
  • Sentiment: Stamp the sentiment using Pool Party Ink on Whisper White Cardstock measuring 2-3/4" x 7/8". Trim the right side using the Tailored Tag punch. Glue to the underside of the scalloped layer, trimming if needed.

The cards I am showing you today are from a Facebook Live Class.
I started my Facebook Class with a Clean & Simple Card:


I love the splash of color using the Highland Heather Cardstock strip.


The second card is stepped up a little with the addition of the Needlepoint Nook
Designer Paper, a little bit of Night Of Navy Twine and more stamping!



And my last card is really stepped-up with lots of stamping, lots of
fussy cutting, more twine and more designer paper layers:



Here are all three in the order that I created them in my class and that's what you'll see in my video below. I had a great time creating these cards and I hope you are enjoying seeing them today! If you

Greek Isles Achievers Blog Hop for January!


Hello and welcome to our January Blog Hop. We are all demonstrators that have earned the Stampin' Up! Greek Isles Incentive Trip. This month, our theme is Sale-a-Bration and Occasions Catalog products. I used the Hey Love stamp set for my cute card today along with the Needlepoint Nook Designer Paper:


I also used my Stamparatus Tool to complete the Mirror-Image Technique. Isn't the alligator image adorable? I colored them both using my Blends Markers. I also used my markers to color the Heart Epoxy Droplets. Here's a close-up of the images and layers:


I also completed my card by adding the FREE Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack you can earn through our Sale-A-Bration Catalog. Isn't it beautiful?

 
Here are my card layers:
  • Card Base: Gorgeous Grape Cardstock 8-1/2" x 5-1/2". Score and fold at 4-1/4".
  • Layer #2: Needlepoint Nook Designer Paper 5-1/4" x 4". Glue to card base.
  • Layer #3: Whisper White Cardstock cut with the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies. Stamp the images using the Stamparatus Mirror-Image Technique using Memento Black Ink. Color the images with Blends Markers. Glue to card base using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Bling: Color the Heart Epoxy Droplets using the Blends Markers and glue in place as shown on card.
  • Sentiment: Stamp the sentiment on Crushed Curry Cardstock using Memento Black Ink. Hand-cut each word into a rectangle and glue to card front using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Ribbon: Tie the Organdy Ribbon around the card base on the front and tie into a bow!
I hope you enjoyed all of the cuteness today. Thanks so much for visiting me and I will now direct you to the next person after me participating in the blog hop. Reminder that you are visiting Debbie Henderson. Here's the listing of participants:

Hey Love and FREE Project Sheets Coming Soon!



It's almost time for me to send out my next newsletter and this one will include some FREE project sheets from the Tutorial Coop team that I belong to. This month the theme is Valentines, Love or Anniversary. I had a lot of fun using the Hey Love stamp set for my card and adding lots of color with my Blends Markers:


Aren't the stamped critters adorable?  I purposely stamped one of the crazy bird images on the tail of the alligator. Did you notice the cute hat with the hearts on it on top of the alligator's head. Such a hoot! And both birds are carrying hearts in their beaks. This whole stamp set screams cuteness!





And all of my images were so easy to color with our wonderful Blends Markers. You can click on the sheet below or the clickable link below the sheet to print my FREE Project Sheet and look for much more in my newsletter coming soon! You can also find the listing of products at the end of my post.

Animal Outing, Animal Friends & Animal Expedition with Video!


Last Sunday, I featured the Animal Expedition Bundle for my Sunday Share on my Debbie's Designs Facebook page and I had so much fun creating three cards for everyone.The first card uses the images from the Animal Expedition Designer Paper. Did you know the dies coordinate with some of the images on the designer paper sheets so you can simply cut them out?



I just love these critters!


This card was created with one cardstock layer and the addition of a long piece of the
designer paper which is folded into a Pocket Card Fold that you can see below:


My 2nd card is one that I actually "Cased" from the Annual Catalog,
"Copy And Share Everything":


This time the image was stamped, cut, and colored with a Blender Pen:


For my final card, I created a Z Fold Card Fold:


It's neat how the layers on the front, cover the layers on the inside
in exact size so when you open the card, it's almost a startling surprise:


The sloth image I fussy-cut from the designer paper as
this one does not have a coordinating die:
