Here is another card where I let Stampin’ Up!® beautiful Designer Series Paper do all the talking (I did another one last Monday). DSP is a perfect way to make a card when you are in a hurry but still want to send something nice. This time I used the Tea Boutique 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper. I love that lemon pattern. I remember when Stampin’ Up!® had a lemon stamp set during Sale-a-bration that I used a lot and still have. The Tea Boutique Designer Series Paper is part of the Tea Boutique Suite in the Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog. The suite also includes the Cup of Tea stamp set, Teacup Dies and the Tea Boutique Cards and Envelopes. You can buy the entire suite with one item number or buy each item separately. If you just want the stamp set and the dies make sure you use the bundle number so you can save 10%. By the way, if you do buy the entire suite, it includes the 10% discount on the stamps and dies.
Again, this card was super easy to make. I just adhered a 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ piece of the Tea Boutique paper onto a 4″ x 5.25″ piece of Garden Green card stock and an A2 (4.25″ x 5.5″) Basic White card base. Then I added a 1″ x 5 1/8″ piece of Daffodil Delight and a 1/4″ x 5 1/8″ of Garden Green card stock. I like using 1/4″ strips of card stock when I don’t have ribbon in a particular color. I stamped the sentiment from the Cup Of Tea stamp set in Garden Green ink and cut it out using the Beautiful Shapes die set. I layered that on top of a another hexagon in Garden Green. I layered that onto the card using Dimensionals. Lastly, I cut out the little lemon slice and flower by hand to add a little accent to the sentiment
I am very excited that a few ladies from the stamp club I used to have when we lived in New York year round are coming tonight for a stampin’ get together! I. have three projects I have designed for them to put together. They are such a great group of ladies and we always have such a good time. I’ll show you the projects we make over the next week or two.
