Tea Party and Epic Day

tea party

Today's card doesn't have anything I'd consider "new" because it's all from the Annual Catalog, but Tea Party stamp set is new to me!  I hadn't ordered it yet, and I don't know why.  It's so beautiful, and I'm crazy for tea!

  • I started out wanting to use the This and That Epic Day designer paper and found this really cool piece that looks like it could maybe be a ring from a tea mug.
  • Colors are Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake and Whisper White.
  • You'll want the Ovals Collection Framelits to cut out this oval perfectly.  I stamped two in two different colors and layered them.
  • The three flowers in the Floral Fusion Sizzlits are such a great accent.  Here are some other cards where I've used the Floral Fusion Sizzlits accents.
  • I also added a Pool Party button from the Subtles Designer Buttons with a Calypso Coral Candy Dot in the center.
  • The FInishing Touches Edgelit created the lacy border, and I used Crumb Cake Taffeta Ribbon which ties so nicely.
  • Notice the stamping along the right edge?  It's a simply tone-on-tone look but adds another stamped element from the Tea Party collection.

You’re Amazing!

You're Amazing

Sometimes we all need a little help with combining color.  I felt like I was fresh out of ideas and so I turned to the new Raymour & Flannigan Furniture catalog for some inspiration:

Color Combo

I thought this was a fresh, fun palette and obviously pretty trendy since it's in a brand new magazine, right?  So I translated their colors into Rich Razzleberry, Midnight Muse, Pumpkin Pie and Crumb Cake.  What do you think?

You're Amazing 2

I love the new Stampin' Up!  Designer Series Paper Stacks!  And I'm never sure which side to use – they're both so pretty!  So I made one card with the paper one way and the other card turned the designer paper over.  Which do you like best?

Here's how you can duplicate my card:

  • Start with a Crumb Cake card base, then add Midnight Muse cardstock run through the Big Shot using the Argyle Embossing Folder.
  • I used markers to color direct to rubber the stamp from You're Amazing stamp set, then cut it out in a snap using the Big Shot and the Apothecary Accents Framelits.
  • The triple layered flower is the Floral Fusion Sizzlits, again using the Big Shot!  If you don't have one, don'tcha think it's about time! 🙂 
  • In the center of the flower is a Midnight Muse In Color Dahlia.  These little gems are oh, so pretty!
