Have A Cuppa is Tea-riffic

HaveACuppa1

 

Today I have two versions of the same card and I need your help – which do you like best?  Leave me a comment and vote for “tea-riffic” or “it’s your day”.   It’s all about the Have A Cuppa product suite in the Stampin’ Up! 2016 Occasions Catalog.  This is one set that I’ll never part with, even when it retires.  I absolutely love the coordination between the stamped images in A Nice Cuppa stamp set and the Cups & Kettle Framelits Dies.  And right now you can bundle the two together and save 15%.

  • Color scheme is Basic Gray, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, Pool Party and Whisper White – lots of the most popular Stampin’ Up! colors!
  • The Have A Cuppa Designer Paper is 48 sheets, 4 each of 12 double-sided designs in a 6″ x 6″ stack and has a wonderful mix of bolder prints and prints that are more tone-on-tone.
  • Take a snip of Melon Mambo Cardstock and the heart punch from Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack to create the little heart motif.   A Rhinestone Jewel is the perfect accent for the heart.  And this week, Rhinestones are a part of the Weekly Deals – marked down to just $3.75!

  • This version features the Fabulous Four stamp set – perfect to send this card as a birthday card.
  • For both cards, I stamped the cup in Bermuda Bay ink and the lemon in Crushed Curry ink.  The cup has a framelit that works nicely to cut it out and I used my Paper Snips for cutting out the lemon.  I also added a slice in the center so that it can look like it’s sitting on the cup’s rim.  A Dimensional on the front piece of the lemon really makes it come to life.
  • Wisteria Wonder Seam Binding Ribbon is the perfect accent for my card.  It matches the designer paper perfectly and ties beautifully around the cup handle.

Groovy Kind of Love Valentine

Groovy L ove Valentine



Our next card-giving holiday is Valentine’s Day, and it’s my favorite holiday for which to create cards.  This year, Stampin’ Up! has given us so many Valentine’s Day products, both in the new 2016 Occasions Catalog and in the larger Annual Catalog, I’m not sure I’ll be able to show them all!

  • For this card, I’m once again combining the old and the new.  Groovy Love is a – well – “groovy” stamp set in the Annual Catalog that coordinates with the Sweetheart Punch.  I love all the different images and sentiments in this one set – it could keep you busy for a long time!
  • In the Occasions Catalog, there is a paper stack called Have A Cuppa.  It goes with our tea suite and it is so adorable!  But I thought I’d wait until Mother’s Day to show all of the cuteness to this suite.  Looking through the papers, I noticed that there are several pieces with hearts, so it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day, too!  And as always, using Stampin’ Up! designer paper gives you a “no-brainer” color scheme for your card.  I just picked up the colors in the designer paper to use as my solids – Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay and Smoky Slate (although the designer paper is Basic Gray, but I wanted a lighter feel).
  • A really pretty new accent in the Occasions Catalog are the Botanical Gardens Jewels.  It’s a pretty silver flower with attached rhinestone in the center.  I’m going with the “flower power” idea on my groovy card!
  • It’s really fun to create custom-sized cards so that you’re not always locked into filling the standard space.  This card measures 3-1/2″ x 6″ so that I could take advantage of a longer, thinner card front.  And I can easily create the perfect-sized envelope using the Envelope Punch Board.  All I needed was an 8″ x 8″ piece of cardstock and the instructions on the board.  I like Multipurpose Adhesive to put my envelope together.  And while you’re making your envelope, you can use the Punch Board to round the corners on the designer paper – a two-in-one tool!
