Sympathy Card

On the weekend I had an absolutely wonderful time meeting some lovely new ladies in Kingaroy for an all day workshop.  We could have gone on all weekend I'm sure but we had to call an end to it sometime.   One of the requests was for some ideas for sympathy cards.  It was a challenge for me as I have not made one before but I put my thinking cap on and came up with this lovely card which we all made on Saturday.

Very basic and not very long to make but I think it does the job beautifully.

I used Clear Block "C" stamped in Wild Wisteria to add a block of colour to the Very Vanilla card stock then stamped the image from Pocket Silhouettes in Elegant Eggplant over the top.  Wrapped some Wisteria Bakers' Twine around the image and mount it up on some Wisteria Cardstock.

I'll post some more projects we made this weekend on here soon.

Tea Shoppe Caddy

 In my last class we girls made this lovely little Tea Caddy along with some other items perfect for gift giving based on the Tea and Coffee Theme.  We used two Stampin' Up! stamp sets, "Tea Shoppe" and "Morning Cup".   This was not my original idea.  I googled Tea Caddy and up came lots of wonderful ideas to get the brain sells pumping.

This is my version of the Tea Caddy using "Tea Shoppe" and the Designer Series Paper called "Attic Boutique".  The Twinings Tea Bags fit perfectly into the box and I was lucky to pick a flavour who's colour matched perfectly.

I've also used the Edgelits and matching embossing folders.  My favourite pink "Blushing Bride" was also used.  I'll be sad when this leaves us in August.

We also made a Coffee Pouch which  I received as a swap from convention.  I put a different front on the pouch and double embossed it by running it through the embossing folder and then brayering Versamark on the top and heat embossing it with Gold embossing powder.  Inside you could put a coffee sachet or bag with a chocolate for some yumminess.

The last item we made was this Tea For Two pouch which is made from one piece of Designer Series Paper folded up to make this double sided pouch.  A tea bag can fit in both sides with a couple of biscuits held in the middle.  I found this little template from HERE.  It is very easy to follow.
I think it makes a lovely gift and is a good way to use up all your old DSP......

The one thing that I would most definitely recommend to make all these projects was the Simply Scored Tool.  It made measuring and scoring a breeze and really is a tool you should invest in.

Hope you enjoyed these.  The girls had a lot of fun making them.  Needless to say we were working very late into the night.

See you again soon.

Tea Shoppe Loveliness

I have put off buying this set for some time because I just couldn't think what to do with the Big Tea Cup.  Finally I gave in because I wanted the set for the other stamps to help me with my next class.  So my mum has had a bit of a play with this one and come up with a card to give to her friend who took her out for a cuppa a week or so ago.

This is what I love about Stampin' Up!  They have all these different products that colour co-ordinate perfectly.  Here we've used Rose Red Ink Pad, Rose Red Seam Binding, Very Vanilla Cardstock and the lace trim which all works brilliantly together.

Mum added a few pearls, a Vintage Brad and some distressing to finish off the cards.   I'm sure her friend will be thrilled.

Happy Stamping Everyone
