Tea Together - A lovely Surprise!

At time of  writing this post,   I have yet to pre-order or get my hands on the new products from the forthcoming Annual Catalogue to give you a sneak peek.  So today's project features this birthday card I  made for one of my team last month.

I have great news!  Although the "Tea Together" stamp set is retiring from the Spring Summer catalogue, "Tea Together" is here to stay, at least for another year! 

Do you remember during this year's Sale-a-bration, the Tea Time dies were a Level 2 product choice?  I'm delighted to say that the Tea Time dies is available to purchase in the new annual catalogue!  What a lovely surprise!

The coloured doilies are on the Last Chance list, so I thought I'd better use them up quick!

As there isn't a Coastal Cabana Stampin' Blend available at the moment, I had to colour it in Pool Party, and it looks lovely against the Flirty Flamingo doily.

Please note that the Tea Time Framelits will crop up as a retired item and will be on sale when the catalogue officially launches on June 4th, 2019.

Last Chance Bundle! Piece of Cake and Background Masking Technique

I sincerely hope that by the time this is published, that the Piece of Cake Bundle in the Spring/Summer Catalogue is still available.  However if you miss out, don't despair as the stamp set and punch have made it into the new Annual Catalogue and you can still get your hands on them.  Unfortunately it will no longer be a bundle item but you can still purchase them as separate items.  My advice is that  if you can, get it  as a bundle before the 2019 Spring/Catalogue expires so you can enjoy the 10% discount bundled price.

Remember the Bokeh Dots stamp set?  I wanted to use the "twinkly" one as my background behind the tiered cake, but I didn't want the rectangular outline.  If you subscribe to my youTube channel HERE Tuesday I publish a short video tutorial with weekly tips which is also shared on my Stamp with Elaine Facebook page .  This week was on how to create a masked background and it's been repeated in today's video.

Important! Stampin' Trimmer Blades Update

A quick update of the Stampin' Trimmer Cutting Blades.  If you want to stock up on the Stampin' Trimmer Cutting Blades for your trimmer which is being discontinued, a shipment has been received by Stampin' Up! and will be available on Thursday, 23 May 2019 at 6:00 pm in the evening.

You will be able to order a maximum of 6 packs (2 in a pack which is a total of 12 blades).  The best way to secure yours will be to place an online order  - remember to use the May host code to be eligible for a thank you gift.

If you don't have an online account,  I suggest you set one up and remember your password prior to Thursday so you don't miss out.


I understand there will be future shipments, however we have not yet been advised as to when this willl be.

Wonderful Romance - gone big!

The catalogue is always a great source of inspiration, but oftentimes we forget!  At the time of composing this, the retirement list had yet to be published.  For sure, the embellishment and gorgeous papers will be retired - they do this practically every year!  Whether or not this beautiful Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder will stay will remain to be seen!

Update -Wonderful Romance Cling stamp set and its coordinating dies called the Wonderful Floral Framelits will be retiring from the 2019 Spring/Summer catalogue, but the lovely Lace Dynamic TIEF will be carried over.

Whilst my card isn't a straight CASEing (Copy and Share Everything)  - I've made this card into a 6"x 6" (15.2 cm x 15.2 cm) card.  This embossing folder is FAR too pretty to hide, so I went larger!  

The Floral Romance Specialty DSP pack is a little different from the norm - there are 6 printed vellum sheets in this pack - 3 each of 2 single sided designs, and 6 printed sheets , 3 each of 2 double sided designs.  I simply fussy cut the vellum printed sheet with all the leaves and flowers and adhered these with glue dots on my sentiment frame.  Isn't that cool?

I even fussy cut the corners from the vellum sheets and adhere them to the inside of the card!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this will stick around for another year, but if not, at least I can showcase it one last time before it disappears for good

Happy Sunday!
