SQSC21 Tea Shoppe Tag and New Products!

Whenever my mojo gets misplaced or lost, the Stampin’ Queens Sketch Challenge can usually quickly inspire me to create!  LOL, this is the second card of seven I made during Sunday’s Mojo Marathon!SQSC21_Sharon_Field_Tea_Shoppe_Tag_CaRD

There’s a lot going on, lots of fresh and fun new product, and of course the pretty marker colored bloom from the Tea Shoppe Stamp Set too!2.Tea_Shoppe_Tag_Stampinup

Tips for Stampers:

  • After embossing the tiny hearts from Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, use a white gel pen to color the raised hearts.
  • Outlining a colored image with a white gel pen can make it “pop” off darker card stock colors.
  • Use a white gel pen to add a faux layer to your card!
  • When using markers on colored card stock, test first on a scrap to see how the color will transfer.
  • Attach tiny buttons to tags or card stock with mini glue dots!
  • To create ruched ribbon effects, fold the ribbon in half then pull gently on a couple of the threads at the fold. 
  • Additional ribbon tip: snip folded ribbon from outer edges towards the fold, leaving just a few fold threads en tact and then simply pull them!
  • Create pretty bows easily on your fingertips following my Double Loop Bow Tutorial!3.outlined_Stamped_Floral+Blossom_With_White+Gel_Ink

Very pretty color combo, but here it looks a bit similar to a dusty razzleberry, pip, and sand. lol My computer often displays colors kind of wonky. Love the gel pen doodles.
