When I first looked at what we demonstrators got to order early, I liked the Cup of Tea suite. Then I saw the lemon die and I LOVED the suite!
Many, many, many years ago, SU! had a stamp set that was sliced fruit- one that could be a lime, lemon or orange. I made a card stamping it in three different colors.
This card I used so many new things. The lemons/limes/oranges are with the Teacup die. I used Pale Papaya, Pumpkin Pie for the oranges. Garden Green, Parakeet Party for the limes. So Saffron and Daffodil Delight for the lemons.
The background is the new stamp set Rays of Lights. I used So Saffron for that.
The Sweet Friend is from the Sweetest Cherries stamp set. I stamped the “sweet” then die cut with the new Deckled Rectangles dies. I then stamped “friend”.
The top scallop border I used the Scalloped Contours dies.
I used my Stitched Rectangles dies (surprise!) for the border around the front.
This new suite is so beautiful- the paper was used on three different cards! I’ll give the product lists for each individual card in separate posts. This post is about this card, the one I made for my mom for Mother’s Day.
I love this new stamp set and matching punch (Sweet Songbird Bundle)! And the new In Colors (Starry Sky, Parakeet Party & Sweet Sorbet)! And two new sets of dies (Fabulous Frames & Stylish Shapes)! All used on this card!
After the catalog goes live, I’ll update this post with a list of everything I used. I think the only things I used that are available are Memento Black ink, Basic White paper, and Soft Suede ink!
and I thought of an idea! I had stamped the girls on the bike and cut it out, and I thought it would be really cute if they were on a beach.
Lots of things on this card are retiring! The stamps Sharing Sunshine (boo hoo!) and Right Behind You (boo!). The dies I used to make the ropes around the diorama (diorama dies are NOT retiring- YAY!) are from the Smooth Sailing dies, sad to see those go. Things are selling out fast- so get something soon that you love!
The palm tree is from the Paradise Palms that are in the current mini catalog. Love how tall they are!
I made this card a few weeks ago and every time I see it, I smile. The ducks and bunny in the Easter Friends stamp set are so dang cute! With three ducks in a row, it looks like they’re dancing!
I stamped the ducks three times using the Stamparatus. I stamped it one time on three full sticky post it notes, stacked on top of each other, then fussy cut it- three ducks masks! I used those as masks when I used my Blending Brush with ink for the background.
The tulips are from the Tulip dies. I die cut them with Basic White paper and then colored with Blends markers.
