An Energized Tea Party Card

Tea Party
An energized Tea Party Card starts our week.  Cherry Cobbler accents lend a vibrancy to today's Tea Party Card.  And the charming polka Dots of the Modern Medley Paper add a happy upbeat feeling.


Paper Flower Tips
  • Punch 3 or 4 flowers with the Pansy Punch.
  • Crumple the flowers and reopen.
  • Layer, Pierce center and add Antique Brad
  • That's it!  Paper Flowers are so pretty and yet so simple to make.
Tea Party


 Rhinestones in graduated sizes shine the spotlight on our Tea Party theme.

Stampin' Up! Card Idea by Guest Designer Lori Ballitch

Vintage Card by Lori Ballitch
Today's Vintage Birthday Card was designed by good friend and team member, Lori Ballitch.  Lori loves all things primitive.  She gives the Flower Shop Bundle a Vintage makeover with her sharp Monochromatic card.

Autumn Card & Bag


The Autumn Accent Bigz Die was the workhorse of our Autumn Craft Projects this week and today's project was no exception.  A variety of colors and shapes were cut with the Autumn Accents die, then dry embossed for added texture. (Pretty Prints, Woodgrain, Square Lattice).  Autumn Accents is not just for paper, it also cut my burlap maple leaves.
