Ladies Club - January

Bloomin' Marvelous! 
That's the name of the stamp set I used for this club card.  Here in the Pacific Northwest, we've had a pretty gray start to the New Year.  Doesn't it make you smile to think of spring?  That's what this card reminds me of with the Vine Street embossing folder, which I used on the Baja Breeze background.  This stamp set and embossing folder are available in our Sale-a-bration catalog.  The Melon Mambo butterflies were punched with the Bitty Butterfly punch.  The Tea for Two DSP, 3/8" Melon Mambo Striped Organdy ribbon and the Butterfly punch is from the Spring catalog.  The Finishing Touches Edgelit was used on the Island Indigo border.  Make sure you have your Piercing Tool handy when you use this edgelit.  It provides such a detailed design that sometimes the little pieces like to stick in the edgelit and I use my piercing tool to clean them out.
Silver Tea Shoppe

One of my favorite local restaurants is the Victorian Rose Tea Room.  They have "High Teas" and the most adorable gift shop.  My hubby treated me to breakfast there last weekend.  The Tea Shoppe stamp set reminds me of the Tea Room. 
I used a Crumb Cake card base and stamped the flower design in the background with Crumb Cake.  I like the tone-on-tone stamping technique.  For the tea cup, I stamped it with VersaMark and then embossed it with Silver embossing powder. 
Tea Time Trinkets.  I can't get enough of these!  They have the most intricate details on them.  It's a good thing there is no limit to the number of embellishments you can buy ;)
Tea for Two DSP is shown on the bottom of this card and The border above it was made using the 7/16" Natural Trim.  The sentiment was punched with the 7/8" Scallop circle and layered with a 1" circle punch in Chocolate Chip.
You can purchase these Tea Time Trinkets, Natural Trim, small scallop circle and Tea for Two DSP from our Spring catalog.  And, because it's Sale-a-bration time, you can earn freebies for every $50 purchase!
