Today I had planned a fun day in my craft studio, creating more projects to inspire you. Unfortunately before I can do that we need to prepare for a big winter storm that is heading our way. We may not get a whole lot of snow but an ice storm is a distinct possibility. That means we could lose power at some point. So while I get myself organised, here’s a quick get well card with pretty roses for you.
I’ve no idea why there’s a group of roses called tea roses, but I do remember my Mum loved them. So I suppose I wasn’t surprised to see the beautiful roses in the Tea Together Stamp Set.
I began with a piece of Shimmery White Card and using Merry Merlot ink stamped the large rose image in the corner. Then using a damp Aqua Painter I painted the rose with Merry Merlot and Shaded Spruce ink.
For my sentiment I turned to the Well Said Stamp Set. I decided on ‘sending healing thoughts your way’ stamped beside my large rose using Shaded Spruce ink.
Next from the Tea Together Stamp Set I chose the rosebuds image. I stamped this in the bottom right corner on a layer of Whisper White Card with Merry Merlot ink. Then I stamped it onto the front of a Whisper White Medium Envelope. Once I’d painted the rosebuds with Merry Merlot and Shaded Spruce ink I set everything aside to dry.
I wanted the background for my card to be really simple, but not stark. So I used some Stampin’ Sponge to lightly add some Pool Party ink over a layer of Whisper White Card. Then I wrapped a length of Very Vanilla 1/2″ Lace Trim around the card and secured it on the back with Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Next, I cut and scored a piece of Merry Merlot Card using my Stampin’ Trimmer. I folded it along the scored line and sharpened the crease with a Bone Folder to create a card base. Then I attached the background layer to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow).
Now that the painted pieces were dry I fixed the rosebud layer inside the card base with liquid glue.
Then I used liquid glue to attach the sentiment to a layer of Merry Merlot Card. Once the layered sentiment was attached to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals I was done.
Both stamp sets used on today’s project have dies that coordinate with them although I didn’t use the dies today. The Well Written Framelits Dies coordinate with the Well Said Stamp Set. Buying these two items using the bundle item number will save you 10% off the cost of buying them separately. I’ve included a link to the Well Said/Well Written bundle in case you wanted to look at this.
You can see a project I’ve made using the stamp set and dies together in my blog post Well Written Well Said.
The Tea Together Stamp Set does not come as part of a bundle, because you can’t currently buy the Tea Time Framelits Dies. If you want these dies now you can choose them for FREE, with a $120 order (before shipping and taxes). This offer is only available during the Sale-A-Bration promotion which ends on March 31st. The dies will then be made available for purchase once the Stampin’ Up! 2019/2020 Annual Catalogue is launched on June 3rd.Product List
