Afternoon Tea Together Time & Last Week of Sale A Bration

A simple Tea Together card for you today featuring the free Sale A Bration Tea Time dies  and the co-ordinating stamp set.... But before I start on the card... 

I can't believe that it is "that time" already ... the time for the call for the last 7 days week of Sale A Bration... You know the one... 
Order £45+ SU! product and get a freebie... order £90+ and get 2 (or a bigger Level 2 one) etc etc... no limits!
AND order £200+ SU! product in one go... and get an extra £20 product free... so £40 free for a £200+ order... with 4 free Sale A Bration products too (Bonus TIP : Order £225+ SU! product... get 5 free Sale A Bration products and £42.50 product for free!)
OR... sign with SU! today... and select £170 SU! product for just £99 (including shipping)... or for £125 instead you can get the exclusive Stampin Up Tote Bag pictured too ... RRP £47

And so back to the card...
Tea Together Teapot stamped on Watercolor Paper... die cut... and then coloured/striped with Mossy Meadow ink picked up from the ink pad lid with an Aquapainter brush and "swooshed" across

And a bonus tip for you... something that was making people laugh at me at Team Training when I made this! But I still don't think it's daft!!!

I found it impossible to even start to attempt to get those water-coloured stripes straight without assistance... So I lined the stamped & die cut teapot up on my grid paper... got my trusty ruler out and lined it up at the top of the teapot... across the top of the spout/pot and handle... just under the lid... 

I then "swooshed" my first stripe across underneath the ruler (taking care not to touch the ruler as that would have made a real mess!!)... and then I freestyled the rest... suddenly easy that way!
Country Floral embossed Soft Sea Foam panel... on a Mossy Meadow mat... 

Grapefruit Grove Gingham Gala paper strip stamped with Tea Together greeting

Finished off with a Tea Together stamped & die cut flower on Watercolor Paper... Aqua Painter coloured with Grapefruit Grove with a Cajun Craze centre... with Mossy Meadow for the leaves...

Balmy Blue Lovely Lattice & Country Floral

Love these flowers in the Lovely Lattice stamp set... a Sale A Bration item... so can only be earnt during March with a £45 qualifying order... yes...  now only 2 weeks left of this promotion...

3 of my favourite new colours on here... Balmy Blue Stampin Blends for the Lovely Lattice flowers with Granny Apple Green Stampin Blends for the leaves... and Soft Sea Foam cardstock for the Country Floral embossed panel... 
And a 4th colour surprise to me.... as I love the new Pineapple Punch for the centre of the flowers... adds such a pop!! Though I have to admit that this was my least favourite in the 2018-2020 In Colors when I first saw them (and still is if I look at the cardstock!)

Sentiment frame punched using the new (and available during March only) Story Label Punch

Fun Fold Friday - Ellie's 30th Floral Romance Pop Up Front Step Panel Card

I have been particularly gutted to lose 5 days this week because of "the neck thing"... as I had engineered a free week so that I could create some special cards for special people in my life who have special birthdays coming up...
But hey ... today I finally felt SO much better... and so I managed to create something new for Ellie... who I just can't believe is coming up to 30... her 21st seems minutes ago...
Sadly everyone else this week got cards selected from stock... though they were all special too... but I just wanted to go back to that original feeling of making something specifically for someone... as that is still as special as it ever was... 
I will be back when I can with further details on this card fold... but in the meantime... these papers are the Floral Romance papers and click here for more details of the other products used ...
Oh and the decorative flowers are cut from the vellum papers in the pack... as unfortunately ... although I won the Wonderful Romance rubber stamps in the On Stage Prize Patrol (hoorah)... I swapped them for something else at the time (boo!)... 

And now I hope I can get back to normal blog service very soon... speak tomorrow!
