Stampin’ Up! Tea Together Mother’s Day Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a card that I made yesterday afternoon during my Facebook Live Tutorial. The lovely Stampin’ Up! Tea Together cling stamp set and coordinating Tea Time Dies only came out last year, but they are on the retiring list – and the dies come with a 60% discount!! It’s a sweet set and with two weeks to Mother’s Day, it seemed the right stamp set to play with. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Here is the Facebook Live video showing how I made the card:

I also posted the video to my YouTube Channel and you can view it here.

I started by running a panel of Highland Heather card stock through the Parisian Flourish embossing folder and adhering it to the left side of a Whisper White panel. I adhered a strip of Highland Heather gingham next to it. I cut a Whisper White lacy border using the die from the Ornate Borders Dies and adhered it between the layers. I popped the layered panel on a Highland Heather card base with dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Tea Together cling stamp set in Highland Heather ink on a Whisper White panel. I cut it out with the Stitched So Sweetly die and adhered it to the card with liquid glue. I accented it with two Highland Heather glitter enamel dots.

I stamped the teapot and teacup from the Stampin’ Up! Tea Together stamp set in Basic Gray ink on Whisper White card stock and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I adhered a pearlized doily to the card front with multipurpose liquid glue and adhered the teapot and teacup with dimensionals and some liquid glue behind the teacup where it overlapped the teapot. I finished off the front with some tied off polka dot tulle ribbon.

I stamped the sweet sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Tea Together stamp set on the side of a Whisper White panel in Highland Heather ink. Next to it, I stamped the large rose in Basic Gray ink. I colored the rose with Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends and the leaves with Light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend. I added a strip of Highland heather to the bottom and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

So many products used in today’s card are on the current retiring list and I was worried that not all of them would still be available at publication time. Sadly, I just learned that the gingham paper that is part of the Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP is sold out. Many products are going quickly, so hurry over to my Online Store to check out what you’ve been waiting to buy before it’s gone!

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Mother’s Day Card Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I am sharing a video tutorial that I made yesterday during my Sunday Facebook Live session. I made a Mother’s Day Card with the pretty Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips bundle. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used. Here is my card:

And here’s the Facebook Live video:

I also posted the video to YouTube and you can view it here if you prefer.

I started by embossing a panel of Soft Sea Foam card stock with the Parisian Flourish embossing folder. I adhered it to a So Saffron card base with snail. I trimmed the bottom of a strip of Perennial Essence designer series paper with the Banner Triple Punch and adhered it to the card with snail.

I stamped one of each tulip flower from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips stamp set in Daffodil Delight ink on Whisper White. I cut out the largest flower with the Tulip Builder punch and fussy cut the other two. I stamped three stems and two leaves using Pear Pizzazz ink on Whisper White and fussy cut them out. I cut a Whisper White Circle using the largest circle in the Stitched Shapes dies and a Soft Sea Foam scalloped circle using the Layering Circles dies. I adhered these together with snail.

I arranged the flowers and stems on the circle and adhered the stems with glue dots. I adhered the small tulips to the circle with multipurpose liquid glue and the large flower with dimensionals. I adhered the stems with multipurpose liquid glue and trimmed the ends. I attached the leaves. I stamped the sentiment in Pear Pizzazz ink on a Stitched So Sweetly die cut Whisper White label. I adhered the circle and label on the card front with dimensionals, including skinny ones under the stems. I finished the card with a Daffodil Delight ruched ribbon bow and a pearl colored with the dark Daffodil Delight Stampin Blend.

I stamped another tulip, stem and leaf on a Whisper White panel for the inside of the card. I added a strip of the Perennial Essence DSP to the bottom and adhered it to the inside of the card with snail.

I love bright yellow tulips in the Spring and I think they’re perfect for Mother’s Day! What will you make for Mother’s Day?
