Good morning and – might I just add – happy happy HAWWWWMP DAY!!! So – I’ll be back in a bit with our grand total for the Greater Good fundraiser and the Winner(s) of the Mini Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine Stylish Shapes Collection. Are you excited for the final tally!? I know I am – and I’m looking forward to making that donation for ALL of us!!
In the meantime, though – let’s make a card! I had a fun fold design idea in my head when I sat down but…then I watched our CEO Sara Douglass do a video – and she used the Tea Boutique DSP. With the lemons. And…all of a sudden – I really needed to play with that! So – I did! And I pulled a couple of big, bold sentiments from the Good Feelings stamp set – with a little sweet help from the Cup of Tea bundle. Take a look-see:
Yep – it’s the same fun fold I’d planned – a front flap. Just…totally different stamp sets, DSP, colors, sentiments…. 😉
I started by matting two strips of Tea Boutique 6″ x 6″ DSP on Parakeet Party cardstock and adhering them to the ends of a Garden Green card base.
The middle card is a small tent-fold, made from Parakeet Party and adhered in the middle of the card base with Liquid Glue.
I matted a piece of Tea Boutique DSP on Garden Green and adhered it to the small card front with Liquid Glue.
Using my Stamparatus, I stamped one of the big sentiments from Good Feelings in Garden Green on a small piece of Basic White. Then I added some doodles around the edge with my Parakeet Party Stampin’ Write Marker.
I adhered the panel to the front of the small card with Liquid Glue. Yes – there are NO Dimensionals ANYwhere on this card. GASP!
Using the dies from the Teacup Die Set – I cut out some lemons – the detailed cuts in Daffodil Delight cardstock, the solid cut in Tea Boutique DSP – and some Sweet Sorbet hearts.
Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the detailed lemon die cuts to the solid DSP lemon die cuts.
Then I used more Liquid Glue to adhere the lemons and hearts to the front of the small card.
I added some Iridescent Pearl Basic Jewels – one for the “dot” above each “i” in the sentiment.
On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to stamp a second Good Feelings sentiment in Garden Green on a piece of Basic White cardstock. Then stamped the foliage from Cup of Tea in Parakeet Party across the bottom of the panel and added some Daffodil Delight flowers. I added some Iridescent Pearl Basic Jewels to the flower middles (and to dot the “i”).
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Garden Green mat and then into the small card base and the front of the card was done.
For the back, I stamped the large leaf from Cup of Tea in Parakeet Party and Garden Green on a Basic White Panel.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Parakeet Party mat and then to the back of the card base and the card was done.
My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Cup of Tea leaves on the front…
…and more Tea Boutique 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! I really love this Tea Boutique 6″ x 6″ DSP – and had sort of forgotten how much! Good Feelings is a great little stamp set – all sentiments…
…and they’re big enough to carry a card front all on their own! But – I liked how the Cup of Tea foliage and Teacup die cuts just add a little extra sumpin-sumpin, don’t you?!?

Finn Fan Fix
On our Zoom the Craftroom the other day – we (okay – I!) was talking about how Finn – like his DAD! – can park himself (with his DAD – it’s park the TRUCK/Tractor/Golf cart/etc) so squarely in the middle of ANY passageway that it’s as if he had a surveyor’s theodolite (you just learned a new word – you’re welcome! 🙂 ) or a GPS to figure it out.
But he doesn’t.
So – I had to laugh – and take the picture – when that very evening – while I was making dinner…
That passage is one I cross approximately 100 times while making dinner. 🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️
THIS is partly why he sleeps in his kennel at night – cuz he’d for sure be right between me and the bathroom and I would NOT be able to see him! And then I’d trp over him and say bad words!
