My card begins just like any other card. The base is Whisper White, matted with a piece of Basic Grey and matted again with another layer of Whisper White. I used our Framed Tulips Embossing Folder (#121809) for a feminine touch, after all it is a Tea Party.
Now the fun begins. . . The stamp brush set is Tea Shoppe. One of the many great features of MDS is that you can size any shape to the size you want. I used the three tea cups and resized them to make them smaller. I punched them out with our 1" square punch (#124094) and mounted them on our Scallop Square Punch (#119884). My sentiment is from the same brush set and I made it smaller too so it would fit in the Decorative Label Punch (#120907). I added some 1/2" Cherry Cobbler Scallop Dot Ribbon and there you have a beautiful digitally designed greeting card.

Bordering On Romance
Hello Folks !! Happy Monday. What a great day yesterday. Chilli in the morn but it warmed up nicely. I was able to get some needed yard work done. Funny, that makes me so happy when I have a neated dressed yard. LOL
I was even able to get some cards ready for my Tea Party. I thought it probably was a good idea to get some Mother's Day cards ready. My stamp set is the beautiful Bordering On Romance (W125482/C125482) found in the Occasions Mini pg 11. Boy oh boy this needs to be on everyone's wish list, but don't wait to to long, the mini ends on April 30th. My image was colored with "Prisma Color Pencils and Gamosol". If you haven't tried pencils yet be sure and put that on your to do list. I used our Scallop Circle #2 die cut (113469), nested with an Island Indigo 3" circle. The focal point circle was cut with a nestie. It measure 2 3/4 across. My designer paper is the SAB Everyday Enchantment, FREE with a $50 purchase. My strip is 1 3/4" wide and 4.25 long. I used the Square Lattice embossing folder (119976). One of my favorite cool tools. My scallop needed some depth to it, it seemed to fade in the background so I used our piercing tool and mat pack. My ribbon is Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding (122330) with a large white brad. Added some tiny pearls for flower centers.
Just A Reminder — The release of our new catalog is June 1st. That means you will have until May 31st to check your supplies and order any of the retiring paper and ribbons like I used on my card today. Blushing Bride, Concord Crush, Peach Parfait, Pear Pizzazz and Poppy Parade with retire this year. We will be getting a new set of In Colors when the catty is released.

Well that's it for me folks, I'm looking forward to another productive day. Need to make more Tea Bag Holders and the like for my Tea Party. If you have any questions or need any help with orders please contact me I would love to help. Ta Ta For Now
Hello Folks. Welcome to SandiesKorner and the week end. The sun is shining and it looks great outsdie but WOW it sure is still chilli out there this morning. I'm hoping it will warm up a bit, I need to trim up some bushes and get them ready for spring. Things are starting to bud here in ole' MO.
I got a little blind sighted at my craft fairs this year. I was so happy to see folks buying handmade greeting cards. They were asking for masculine cards and I didn't have very many. I am on a crusade to try and get some masculine cards ready for this years craft shows. So here we go. Today I have a masculine card to share. It is clean, simple but striking. I think that covers all the bases.
My cardstock is Whisper White (100730), matted with a piece of Night of Navy (100867), matted again with WW. I have a strip approx 1.25" wide by 3.75" long of NON. I used our Square Latice Embossing Folder (119976) for a little pizzazz. Even men like pizzazz. LOL I wrapped a piece of our Real Red Grososgrain Ribbon (retired) around it. My designer paper is just perfect for the gentlemen. It is from the Brights Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack (117155). This is a large tablet like selection of dp. I believe you get two (2) sheets of four (4) different designs. Mine is so discombobulated, but I think that's right. This is often overlooked, you can find it at the bottom of each family selection.
My stamp set is Happiest Birthday Wishes (W122615/C122617), it is one of this year's Hostess Sets. You can purchase this discounted set with your Hostess Cash that you earn when you host a Workshop of $150 or more. Now thats a great plug for hosting a workshop plus it is Sale A Bration time and you will earn even more FREE products plus a bonus tote or FREE stamps. Newbies — I know you will have questions, I would love to talk to you about hosting your own workshop.
My sentiment is from the same set. I inked it up a little differently this time. I know markers are normally the preferred way, but I don't know about you I have trouble getting a clean and crisp image with markers, so I decided to ink first with my NON stamp pad and then I took a cosmetic sponge applicator, dampened it just a bit with water and removed the NON ink from one of my presents then I used my Real Red Marker. This worked beautifully, my mistake was I didn't press hard enough and I missed one of my corners. But I still think it turned out great. Try it and let me know how it works for you. I used our 1 3/4" oval punch (119859) to punch it out. On the inside I stamped "Celebrate" from one of our FREE SAB stamp sets.
Well I've been rambling here. Hope you get the idea and can make a few of your own to add to your stash. It's so nice to have what you need when you need it. LOL Thanks for stopping by this Saturday, have a great week end folks. Toodles

Hello There! Happy Thursday. I've been invited to a Tea Party, so I thought it would be a good idea to come up with a Tea Bag Holder. I did some searching and found this cute little gift idea over on Splitcoaststampers. It's about 3.5" square and will hold two tea bags or two square chocolates.
My stamp set is Morning Cup W116988/C120489. I used various designer papers and cardstock. For my candy holders I used the retired set Eat Chocolate. It's easy peasy.

The next layer is two rectangles cut to fit the inside of my tulip flower border. My stamp set is Raining Flowers, one of our two step stamping sets, W122765/C122767. I stamped them with Concord Crush, Pool Party and my leaves are Old Olive. My sentiment is from the cute set called Friendly Phrases W126149/C126151.

Hello folks. . Happy Friday. Well are you ready. I have some two step stamping to share with you today. I just love this color combo of Poppy Parade, Whisper White, Pool Party and FREE designer paper from Everyday Enchantment #126154. I'm going to miss this lovely paper combo, won't you?
My card is cut at 5.5 x 4.25 (a standard A2 card). It's nested with a piece of Everyday Enchantment witch is FREE with a $50 SAB order. I used one of our new Edgelits called Adorning Accents #125595 and the matching Embossing Folder #125601. I love scallops so this accent fits right in with my style. It gives your card depth and takes it up a notch as Emeril would say. The Poppy Parade strip is also from the Enchantment series. My stamp set is Awash With Flowers #120549. Boy, I love the little daisey image, it's always my go to image in this set. My little leaves are non SU. My sentiment is from Field of Flowers #122762. My intent for this card is to use it as a b/d or Mother's Day card. I attached a piece of Whisper White on the inside and left it blank, now it is ready to go when I am. My pretty ribbon is a piece of 3/8" Ruffled Pool Pary Ribbon #122975.

Hello Folks – – Happy Monday To Ya. Welll, I guess we are getting ready for our biggest snow storm of the year so far. We are settling in for a yucky day and right before Valentine's Day too.
Today I have a rather large card to share with you. I don't normally do this large of a card but here lately I have done several. It is a 5.25" square and I have trimmed off approx. an inch and a half off the bottom. My card base is Whisper White (100730). I topped it with some Concord Crush (119792). I'll be sorry to see this color retire in just a few months. I cut a strip of Everyday Enchantment (FREE with SAB) and attached it to the top bottom of my card. I have used a whale of a bunch of cool tool punches. The base of the flower is a piece of Daffodil Delight Designer Series Paper. I used our Fun Flower Die Cut (#121812) for the largest petal, next I stamped the flower from our Mixed Bunch Stamp Set (W125535/C125537) from the Occasions Mini and used the coordinating punch Blossom (125603), I used Peach Parfait ink. For the center portion I used our Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch #122464. This is such a versitile punch. You can punch three different styles of flowers. What bang for your buck. For the flower center I used one of our buttons and added some Calypso Coral Bakers Twine (125573).
My sentiment comes from a stamp set called Curly Cute (W117014/C120510). I made my piece look like a flag by using a Square Punch on one end. The inside is decorated as well. My Happy Birthday is from our Hostess Set called Happiest Birthday Wishes (W122615/C122617), I also jazzed it up by stamping more images from the Mixed Bunch Stamp Set. This is a larger card and it will require more postage. It does fit in our Medium Square Envelope (107289) nicely.
Be sure and check the top of my posts for all the information and links you need to view all the promotions that Stampin' Up is having. If you would like to make this card and are in need of supplies, please shop in my On Line Store 24/7 at you convenience. That means PJs folks. Can't get any better than that. LOL
