Cup of Tea Encouragement – April CC2C

Stampin' Up! Cup of Tea Encouragement Card- Rosanne Mulhern Heartfelt Stamping

It’s time to take that Cross Country stamping trip with Karen Hallam in CA and myself here in PA.  This month it was my turn to choose our “route”.  With so many wonderful products leaving soon, Karen and I are featuring a favorite stamp set or bundle that’s retiring on May 1st.

My card today features the Cup of Tea bundle and the Tea Boutique Designer Series Paper.  As a tea lover, I really enjoy this set and will definitely hang onto it for a long while.  I created this card for a friend who is recovering from heart surgery.

Measure & Cut…

  • Basic White thick card base:  cut at 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″
  • Basic Black card stock: cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • Tea Boutique DSP: cut at 7/8″ x 4 1/8″ (cut 2),  7/8″ x 2 7/8″ (cut 2)

Put it together…

  • Glue the Basic Black panel to the card base.
  • Arrange the DSP panels around the edges of the Black panel leaving equal borders.
  • Stamp the sentiment on the Basic White panel and heat emboss with black embossing powder.
  • Cut the tea cup using the Teacup dies.  I cut the solid teacup from a DSP pattern.
  • Glue the teacup to the white panel.
  • The flowers are hand cut from the DSP and adhered with dimensionals.
  • Lastly, I added a few (retired) Crushed Curry embellishments.
  •  The inside is embellished with a DSP strip and another hand cut floral.

I’d love to hear if you have a favorite stamp set(s) that you’ll miss? If you haven’t already, please head west to Karen’s blog HERE to check out her favorite retiring products.
