Three Tea Together pop up cards


I'm back today to share one of my fave Tea Together card projects... or four. I totally have the lovely Lou Kitzelman to thank for this fun pop up design. As soon as I saw Lou's Tea Together cards using the Gingham Gala paper pack I knew I had to try them too.

I chose to use the gorgeous All My Love paper pack for my cards. The patterns & colours in this pack are just beautiful & work so well with the Tea Together stamp set.

Two cards for Tea Together


Hello friends :) You might have noticed it's been a bit quiet here lately.

Some of you know my dear Mum passed away mid March, after a long struggle with Alzheimer's. In April my darling man & I had some time out travelling around New Zealand, and going to Stampin' Up! Onstage in Auckland. Then earlier this month, our darling girl turned 18 so we celebrated her milestone. All this means I've had little time or head space for stamping or sharing here on my blog.

I do however have quite a bit of sharing to catch up with, from earlier in the year so I'm starting with a couple of cards made with the Tea Together stamp set & coordinating Tea Time dies. This is timely, as Mother's Day was yesterday, and my Mum loved her cup of tea & always in a china cup or mug.

Botanical Butterfly cards - last week to earn your paper free


Family commitments have made it a bit difficult to share lately but I'm trying to write posts of my backlogged Sale-a-bration projects as I have time this week, before Sale-a-bration ends on 31 March.

Today I'm sharing four easy cards I made back in January using mainly the Sale-a-bration Botanical Butterfly designer paper pack - get it free with a $90 purchase until 31 March if supplies last that long.

I've also used Rectangle stitched framelit dies on all cards, Stampin Blends alcohol markers, and  a few different stamp sets-bundles for the sentiments.

JAI 448 Just add J - Joy fold birthday



This week our new Just Add Ink challenge is to...


So, what J's could I think of? Jeans (love to wear but no), jedi (cool but no), jewels, jolly, jars, jelly?  Then I remembered a fancy fold from way back - the  joy fold fold. I don't know why it's called a joy fold but it's definitely a fun card. Here's what I made using the Hello Cupcake free stamp set...

JAI 442 sketch challenge - Tea Together


So it's time for a new Just Add Ink challenge and this week it's a sketch challenge. Yay!


I was intrigued by the swirly elements. They made me think of the large stitched pattern die in the Needlepoint Elements die set (also in the Needle & Thread stamp & die bundle), so I teamed this with the pretty teapot stamp from the Tea Together stamp set as my central element represented by a circle in the sketch. This is how it turned out.
