My house is a happy place right now because I'm holding my NEW handy dandy Stampin' Up! Catalog. My eyes cannot gaze away. I love the artwork. I love it so much it was the inspiration for this card. I found this very fun layout in the catalog and thought it would be great for my Tea Shoppe stamp set. You can't begin to understand how excited I was to see this stamp set carry over. It made me so happy. The card itself is very simple. I started with Whisper White Cardstock and used my Striped Embossing Folder directly to the base of the card. I used a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock (3.5 x 3 3/4) and scored along each edge at 1/4" using my handy Simply Scored Tool. Have you fallen in love with that product yet? It doesn't take much to fall madly in love. I stamped my images onto Whisper White cardstock using Early Espresso and Rose Red ink colors. The tea cup images were punched using the 1" Square punch and then matted onto a piece of Whisper White that was punched with the Postage Punch. I added a little Rose Red Scallop Border punch under the Crumb Cake just like the card in the catalog. You will notice the little flower on the safety pin… that's a yummy new embellishment in the catalog. It's hanging on with a Mini Glue Dot for dear life.
Now, the big question… If you have the same beautiful new catalog I have, can you find the card I CASED? If you do not have the NEW catalog I know a way you can get one FAST! Sign up to be a demonstrator today and you can have 4 of them sent to you! It's so easy to become a demonstrator and even better now that Stampin' Up! has the $99 My Way Starter Kit.
