Cup of Tea Team Time Cards!

I hosted team time in my studio Saturday, and we had a great time together! We made three projects with the cup of tea bundle - a fun fold card, a "thinking of you" card, and a gift card holder.

The fun fold is very simple, yet pretty:


and here's what it looks like open:


Of course we used the delightful Tea Boutique Designer Series paper. There are such a variety of colors in this DSP and it makes it easy to come up with a variety of different color combinations!

Here's the gift card holder:


Very simple, but cute.  This idea is from a card swap in which Carol Hickman created one similar.

And then the third project is a lovely gray and pink card:


Love the color combo in this one.  Using an Adhesive sheet when I die cut the intricute detailed tea cup overlay made it easy to adhere it to the cup. 

Here's the video tutorial to see how I made these cards:

Three Cards With This Birthday Piggy Stamp Set.

This set is just adorable!  Of couse I'm partial to piglets - we have about 18 of them right now. They are about 10 days old and just so darn cute!

Here's a pic of the cards I made tonight. Supplies and measurements are in the free PDF (link is below).

The first card is a simple fun fold I made using the Perfectly Penciled DSP and Fabulous Frames Dies.

I love the color combination on this card.

I used the Botanical Layers Stamp Set with the Baby Wipe Technique to make these cards.

Botanical layers card thank you single (1) 2

With the Baby Wipe Technique you can load several colors on your stamp as I did to get several shades of green in the leaves.

Here's the bottom layer:

To get that look, add a couple of baby wipes to an empty stamp case (or plate).  Begin adding drops of ink - space them out. 

Baby wipe technique2

Then choose your next color and add drops with the ink refill bottle. I started with Pear Pizazz and then added Garden Green.

If you want a third color, leave more spacing between the drops of ink.  

As you ink up your stamp, it will hit the different colors and the result is a nice stamp of blended colors!

June 2022 Sweet Notes Card Club!

When I think of June I think of flowers, longer days, and birds chirping early in the morning! The Lovely and Lasting Stamp Bundle is so appropriate for this time of the year with its large floral image and smaller detailed blooms.  I love that it has a coordinating punch to use for the beautiful sentiments in the set.  If you buy the stamp bundle (stamp set and punch) with my card class kit, you not only save 10%, but I pay the shipping and tax on the bundle for you. 

Here you can see snippets of what the cards look like:
