I can honestly say I have not stopped crafting since the arrival of my starter kit. I have so many cards to share with you but unfortunately you’ll have to wait for a little to see all of my little creations. Make sure you stay toned and pop back to see.
So today’s card is using the other stamp set I added to my starter kit, Time for Tea (147069). I think the main attraction to this stamp set was the way Stampin’ Up! showed it off with all the copper accessories, which you’ll soon realise are something of my favourite things.
I’m not going to lie I looked at this stamp set and my heart dropped as I didn’t have a clue where to start. I’m sure you’ll recall that I did purchase the coordinating Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper (146894), so I basically just started cutting bits up. As you’ll see is didn’t use much and only choose a small strip with the Coastal Cabana spoon design sheet but the subtleness of this really works for this card. This DSP was mounted onto some Coastal Cabana card stock and place on a Very Vanilla Card vase, measuring at 10.5×14.8cm.
To break up the large empty spaces I used the silhouetted leaf stamp in Calypso Coral, however as per my previous post below, I did off stamp this to remove some of the link to soften the colour. Following this I stamped the sentiment in Smoky Slate and punched the top half of the sentiment with the Pretty Label Punch (143715). As the sentiment doesn’t fit into the much a stamped the word friendship onto Calypso Coral card stock and flag either end.
The card still felt a little empty and as I seemed to have plenty of time on my hands, I stamped the foliage in Coastal Cabana and the flowers in Calypso Coral. Having to cut these little bits out was actually quite enjoyable and really finished the card off.
