P retty Mother's Day card using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock and designer paper pieces to the following sizes using a Paper Trimmer and Paper Snips:
- card from Purple Posy Cardstock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4-1/4" x 5-1/4" from Whisper White Cardstock
- 3-1/2" square of small white roses on light purple background design from Best Dressed 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper
- 2-1/4" x 3-1/2" from Whisper White Cardstock
- pink rose cut from pink and purple roses and green leaves on white background design from Best Dressed 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper using Paper Snips
Lightly spritz the large white rectangle with water and insert into the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder so the diamonds are horizontal on the horizontal rectangle. Use the line drawn on the front flap of the folder to help you line the cardstock up straight. Place the folder with the paper inside on your die cutting and embossing tool and run through the machine. Set aside to dry.
Mount the teapot image from the Tea Together Set on Block E. Make sure to remove the large, solid center of rubber from the center of the stamp. Ink up the stamp using the VersaMark Pad. Stamp it in the center of the square of Best Dressed Designer Paper.
Lay the stamped designer paper on top of some Grid Paper in the center. Sprinkle on some Shimmer White Stampin' Emboss Powder so it covers the stamped teapot image. Tap off excess powder. Return the excess powder to the container to use again later.
Tip: I use a fine-tip paintbrush to knock off any excess powder that is stuck anywhere I don't want it.
Heat the powder with the Heat Tool until it is completely melted (more opaque white).
Tip: Use a clothespin to hold the cardstock while using the Heat Tool to avoid burning your fingers.
Pick out the matching, open, teapot die from the Tea Time Dies. Place the stamped, heat embossed teapot image on the designer paper square on a platform on your cutting and embossing tool so the image is centered. Run through the tool.
If the dry embossed large white rectangle is dry, proceed with the next step.
Tip: You can speed up drying with a Heat Tool if needed.
Adhere the dry embossed white rectangle to the front of the Purple Posy card.
Adhere the teapot cut out to the front of the card on the right side so the teapot is centered up and down and the right edge is about 1/2" from the right side of the card.
Mount either of the smaller sentiments from the Tea Together Set on Block B. Ink it up with the Petal Pink Ink Pad. Stamp it on one end of the white strip in the center. Be sure to leave room to punch it out.
Unlock the Tailored Tag Punch. Hold it upside down so you can see the punching area. Slide the stamped sentiment into the punch and get it centered in the punching area. Punch.
Use the side of the brush tip of the Purple Posy Marker to carefully outline the edges of the sentiment punch out.
Adhere the sentiment punch out to the front of the card so it overlaps the bottom left side of the teapot and the left edge is about 1/2" from the left edge of the card and the bottom point is about 1/2" from the bottom edge.
If you haven't already done so, use Paper Snips to cut a pink rose from a piece of the Best Dressed Designer Paper.
Cut at 4" piece of Mint Macaron 1/4" Textile Ribbon.
Fold the ribbon in half. Adhere the ribbon to the back of the rose cut out using Stampin' Dimensionals so the ribbon will stick out to one side a bit. Use Paper Snips to trim the ends of the ribbon into sharp angles.
Add more Stampin' Dimensionals if needed to the back of the rose cut out. Remove the protective backings from the Stampin' Dimensionals and adhere the rose cut out to the card front so it overlaps the right edge of the sentiment punch out and the lower left edge of the teapot cut out. Make sure the ribbons are pointing off to the upper right side.
Use the mini spatula on the Take Your Pick to carefully peel up a medium Purple Posy dot from a sheet of 2019-2021 In Color Faceted Dots making sure that you get the adhesive backing as well. Adhere it to the front of the card in the upper left corner where some of the diamonds meet with a small circle.
