25 March 2013 – It’s Tea Time!!

I can’t believe that Easter is almost here!! The year is just flying by!!

At Stamp Club earlier this month, we had a play with the new Borders Scoring Plate in the Seasonal Catalogue. You can score gorgeous borders and patterns on to cards and scrapbook pages.

I found a lovely card on Pinterest by Suzette here. I thought it was gorgeous and that we could give it a go. I didn’t have the same paper, so I went with Tea for Two DSP. I love this floral paper in it!!

We had fun doing the embossing around the cut out shape. It’s something that is going to take a bit of practice to do, I think!! We dyed the very vanilla ribbon by wetting it with water in a spray bottle and then scrunching it up and rubbing onto the certainly celery ink pad. We then used the heat gun to speed up the drying process. To colour the flower trim, I didn’t wet them but just rubbed them on the ink pad. (My fingers looked a bit pinky on the ends!!)

When I stamped the flowers from Just Believe stamp set onto the background, I actually stamped off first and then stamped it, so that it was only just a shadow of an image.

I hope you like it! Please leave me a comment below.

So if you are a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand, then please feel free to click here to join our wonderful group.

There are 25 talented Australian and New Zealand Stampin’ Up! demonstrators, who have created lots of different projects using the amazing range of free products that you can earn during Sale-a-bration. You may have come from the talented Juliette Chapman’s blog . A list of all the demonstrators participating in the hop will be at the end of this post.

I decided to make a couple of items. First up, I did a Mojo Monday Sketch, No. 274. You can check out the sketch here.

The first card I did was nice but I thought it need something else. So I used the Vine Street embossing folder and Voila! Awesomeness!!!! What do you think?
