I just wanted to let you know that the next couple of weeks of posts may be shorter than usual. It is that time of year that I need to start packing up my things to go back to Nashville for the winter. The cottage is my favorite place to be but it is not winterized which means it would be mightily chilly to live in during the winter months. Actually, I don’t even think it would be humanly possible to do so. Therefore, I need to write a few blog posts way ahead of time. So, I apologize if my posts are short but sweet!
I can not believe it is the last day of August already! I am not sure where the summer went but it sure flew by. The saying “days go by slowly but years fly” is definitely a true one. It is ok though. Fall is my second favorite season (with summer being my first) because the days are still a bit warm, with cool nights and beautiful colors.
I had a hard time deciding what the title of this post should be. I used one stamp set, three sets of dies and an embossing folder to make it. It is not a hard card to make. It just took a lot of products. That is ok, though! I love that you can mix and match Stampin’ Up!® products and they all look so good together.
When I made this card I originally wanted to use the Cup Of Tea stamp set with the coordinating Teacup dies. As you can see, I just ended up using the dies. I cut the cup out using the Teacup Dies, Sahara Sand card stock and my Cut & Emboss machine. Then I cut out the leaf design using Basis White card stock and adhered them together using Multipurpose Glue. This glue is great for attaching die cuts that are thin. Next, I cut out the leaves using the Forever Flourishing die set in Basic White and Soft Succulent card stock. I embossed a 3.5″ x 4.74″ piece of Petal Pink cardstock using the Gingham Embossing Folder. I took two of the Deckled Rectangle dies and used them to cut out a frame in Basic White. I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set called Sending Flowers in Sahara Sand ink. Lastly, I added a piece of white Baker’s twine from the Essentials Pack.
Have a great day!
