I’ve been beavering away in my little craft den for the past few days playing with the new A Nice Cuppa stamp set & co-ordinating Cups & Kettles framelits.
I used the new Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Papers (DSP) together with a mixture of subtle Mint Macaron & Blushing Bride ink, Whisper White & Crumb Cake card, to create a shabby chic range of cards.
I love this set, it’s perfect for birthdays, friend, retirement, open note lets, and it has a sentiment for Mother’s Day too.
‘There’s always time for tea’ stamp looks great embossed. Here I used white emboss powder. (Confession: the card above this was embossed in Pool Party emboss powder, which is now retired. If like me, you have lots of retired stock to use, then go for it, I hate waste!)
Top trick for this card was cutting out a smaller square of the birthday DSP that is set behind the Crumb Cake layer. This paper is so beautiful, you want to use as much as possible. No one will see behind that Crumb Cake layer, which means you have paper that you can later use to cut up or use with framelits.
Another trick is to place tear & tape behind the card which you place the smaller, intricate framelits on like the heart and pattern on the middle cup. That way when you roll it through your Big Shot it will be cut perfectly to stick. Saves trying to apply tiny globs of glue that will show up on your card.
I will be offering a class on the 27th February to make a Mother’s Day card, and accompanying gift bag, using this set. Click on classes for more info.
