Tea for Two!

My predecessor was British.  I hear about Ann's Westie, Johnny Walker, all the time.  He was a good dog, but I'm more artistic & photogenic.  We were/are both very happy dogs. 

We pretty much made this card because we've been thinking about Johnny lately.  And I understand that tea is to the British like coffee is to Americans!  ONLY MORE SO!  Ann said that a cup of tea would cure anything!  Plus – there are a lot of patterns in this card.  When  Ann lived in England a very long time ago, the mixing of patterns was the norm.

I think that this one looks way better in real life.   And it looks WAY better with the Marina Mist border around it than the naked version we first made.  

Border

NOTE:  We'll be studying borders over at the Master Stamper later this month.  Why?  Because when Ann was first a demonstrator almost 13 years ago, she didn't even know to put borders on cards!  And now she likes  double borders!  And today's video class training is all about a card like yesterday's card & the finer points of the Designer Rosette die.

The little napkin is made with the White Waffle Paper from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini.  We're using that on a banner later this month at the Extreme Stamping Class.  Today's the last day that you can get in for the Early Bird Price here.

Here's a tip about that Paper Doily Large Sizzlits Die:  Put some packing tape on it before you start using it!  That way, it will help the bits fall out instead of sticking inside your die.

  1. Thank you!

  2. Ann here – Stamper is taking a nap.

    We placed a SINGLE LAYER of clear packing tape over the felt cutting area. It doesn’t work for some, but it did work for me. Once you place it over the felt, leave it there!

    I had a hard time with my big snowflake die. Picking the pieces out can damage your die more than leaving them in there – or so I’ve been told.

    Some people did the packing tape on the Snowflakes Sizzlet with great success. At Founder’s Circle, it worked for some & not for others.

    Once I put the tape on, I haven’t removed it & it’s worked every time on this die.

  3. Dear Stamper,
    Where and how do you put the packing tape on the doily die to help the bits fall out?
    Thank you,
    Su O’Brien
