Hey y’all! Happy Monday!
Oxymoron aside – I do hope you’ve got an easy week ahead of you!
If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me! If not, but would like to watch the replay, here it is on YouTube!
I pulled out the Tea Together stamp set for this one – and the matching (and FREE during Sale-A-Bration!) Tea Time Framelits – to make this sweet Mother’s Day card. And I figured nothing could be more “right” to put with this sweet set than some Country Floral embossing. Take a look-see:
The layout for this one is from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches:
And the colors are thanks to the color challenge at Fab Friday.
I started with a piece of Petal Pink card stock and embossed it in the new (and FREE during Sale-A-Bration!) Country Floral Dynamic TIEF. Then I used my Whisper White Craft Ink Pad and swiped it across the embossed – raised – design.
Then I let it dry. And helped it with my Heat Tool on the low setting – that Craft ink is JUICY!!
Finally, I matted it on Mossy Meadow for the card front.
The next layer is a Calypso Coral doily that I cut with the largest dies in the Doily Builder Thinlits and adhered to the card front with Liquid Glue.
For the square, I cut the largest Stitched Shapes Framelits square from some Vellum card stock, embossed it in the Country Floral Dynamic TIEF, and used Liquid Glue to adhere it (making sure I only put glue where it would be covered by my tea pot).
The tea pot and flowers were next. On Whisper White, in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, I stamped the tea pot, flowers and a couple of leaves from the Tea Together stamp set.
I colored the flowers with my Light and Dark Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends (and I brushed the petals with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush) and the leaves with the Mossy Meadow Blends. The tea pot is colored with Petal Pink Blends – concentrating mostly on the edges (so…NOT so much ink where the sentiment was going to go!).
Then I used my Stamparatus to line up and stamp the Tea Together sentiment in Mossy Meadow.
I cut everything out with the Tea Time Framelits and then used Liquid Glue to adhere the two small leaves. I added the flower to the tea pot with Liquid Glue, then popped the whole thing onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
A Frosted Flower Embellishment in Petal Pink finished off the card front!
On the inside, I used my Stamparatus and an acrylic sheet to add the second sentiment from Tea Together in Mossy Meadow, and the tea cup in Petal Pink to a Whisper White panel!
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and into my Calypso Coral card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Tea Together tea cup in Petal Pink – and a Mossy Meadow sentiment! – on the front…
…and I added some Floral Romance Specialty DSP in Petal Pink to the envelope flap.
Et Voila! Oh my goodness – I already loved the Country Floral Dynamic TIEF – but…embossing card stock and then using the Whisper White ink….wow! So pretty! And it’s just the perfect accompaniment to the vintage-y and and sweet images in the Tea Together stamp set. Hope you like!
Hint: remember I’ve told you that the Tea Time Framelits WILL be in the next Annual Catalog!? Well – remember that I ALSO told you that they will NOT be FREE then! Right now, though….they ARE!! So….get that $100 order in and snap these up for the low low price of zero…zilch…nada! 😉 Just sayin’….

I’d like to apologize for so many Finn-with-reindeer pictures.
But – they’re just so darned cute, I can’t help it very much!
