Copper Tea Tin and Mini Note Card Set

My project today features items from a NEW suite of products called the Tea Room Suite!  All products in this suite will be available starting June 1st when the NEW 2018-2019 Annual Catalog goes live.  For this project, I used four products from the suite: Copper Tea Tins, Tea Room Copper Vinyl Stickers, Tea Room Ribbon, and Spot of Tea Framelits Dies.  There is also a coordinating stamp set, Designer Series Paper, and a Memories and More Card Pack in the suite!

For this project, I decided to keep it simple and do a coordinating set of three mini notecards with envelopes.  The tins measure 3-3/4 x 3-5/8 x 2-1/4 inches in size, making them the perfect size for holding 3 x 3 inch note cards and envelopes!

I wrapped the tin with a piece of Vellum, and then wrapped a piece of the Tea Room Ribbon around it as well.  I cut a doily from Fresh Fig cardstock using the Spot of Tea Framlits Dies and my Big Shot, then applied one of the stickers from the Tea Room Copper Vinyl Stickers.  I cut a 1-1/2 inch circle from the vellum as well, then applied the butterfly sticker.

Inside the tin are three mini notecards.  I used sentiments from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set for each card!  I used the same ribbon as on the outside of the tin, and used both of the doily dies from the Spot of Tea Framelits, one in Fresh Fig and the other in Whisper White.  I LOVE mini note cards, as they are the perfect size to tuck into gift bags, lunchboxes, or coworkers mail boxes!  You can also punch a small hole in the corner, thread some ribbon or twine through the hole, and use as a gift tag.  I kept all three cards exactly the same except for the sentiment and the sticker on the envelope:

I really love the combination of Fresh Fig and Copper.  I think it’s a really pretty color combination!

All of the items from the Tea Room Suite will be available June 1st.  When you receive your new catalog, you can find the suite on pages 14 and 15.  Need a demonstrator?  I would love to help you with whatever you need!  Please feel free to contact me anytime, or visit my online store to shop!

Rustic Valentine’s Day Mini Note Cards

Today’s project is a set of three mini Valentine’s cards inspired by German Demonstrator Sylwia Schreck.  Each measures 3 x 3 inches, and has a very simple design!  The background of each is a different pattern from the Wood Textures 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper, which is available in the Annual Catalog.  The hearts and leaves are from the Sure Do Love You stamp set, and were all cut out on the Big Shot with dies from the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies!  Both of these items coordinate perfectly, and can be purchased as a bundle for a savings of 10%. The bundle can be found in the Occasions Catalog!

Each heart and leaf combo is set against a small square made using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  Each heart is also stamped in a different color ink!  For these, I used Berry Burst, Melon Mambo, and Real Red.  I also applied the hearts with dimensionals to add some extra detail and make them pop a little!

After I finished these, I thought for a bit about adding some additional embellishments, but I decided against it.  I love their simplicity, and thought they looked best as is  These little notes fit perfectly in Stampin’ Up’s  3 x 3 Whisper White envelopes, and would be perfect to tuck into lunch boxes, or for use as gift tags!
