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.  YOU choose what you want in your starter kit.

On the Go Today!

I'm totally on the go today as I finish up last minute preps for my Open House and Free Valentine Make n Take for tonight.  Thought I'd share another fun favorite of mine today.  This little card was made with our White Note Cards.  They are the best and I use them ALL the time.  I made a bunch of these little tea thank you's for Alexis Birthday Thank You's. They were easy to make and fun.  Hope you enjoy.

I used the Tea Shoppe Stamp set along with the Twitterpated Designer Series Paper.  Love these colors and I love Blush Blossom.  Super pretty and soft. 

You can find all these great products in my Online Store.

Have a TEA-RIFIC Day!


Tea Party

Where oh WHERE have I been? You may have thought I stayed in San Antonio for a little while longer.  Truth is I came home from that fantastic Leadership conference and put a few things in place business wise.  I told myself I would start back to work in February and it takes a little planning to get back to business when you take a long Leave of Absence.  The good news is the excitement of going back to work. I think my kids are excited too. Ha.   I worked so hard this past week and worked lots of late nights that I fell asleep on my couch at 8pm on Friday night. Flat out! Brandon let me know that the entire house knew I was sleeping.   I guess my body was not use to the late nights yet and they didn't appreciate my sleeping noises.

Today I have a sweet Tea Party card to share.  My favorite part of this card was the scented embossed tea cups.  I used the Vanilla Embossing Powder on them and they smelled beautiful.  The kids think this is the coolest thing ever. 

You can find all these lovely's in my Online Store.  Sale-a-Bration is in full swing as well.  Check out the loot you can receive with your $50 order.  GREAT stuff. 
If you place a $50 order through Sale-a-Bration I will be sending my customers a special handmade gift as a Thank You.  🙂 


Are you ready to have a Tea Party? They're not just for little girls.  This fun tea set called Tea Shoppe is perfect to use for a Tea Party invitation.
