Stampin Up Tea for Two DSP and Secret Garden Stamp Set

I love the floral design from the new Stampin Up Tea for Two Designer Series Paper (DSP).  Further, the Secret Garden Stamp Set is one of my favorites from the Stampin Up Spring 2013 Catalog along with the matching Secret Garden Framelits!

This is the card I made using the new products.  (FYI, there is a tool tip at the end of this post.)

This picture is a closeup of the beautiful images from the Secret Garden Stamp Set.

 This picture shows the bow I made while weaving in some baker’s twine.

Stampin Up Secret Garden Stamp Set


TOOL TIP:  When cutting with any of the Stampin’ Up! framelits, a mat is created around the image being cut out.  The color of the mat is the same color as the card stock on which the image is stamped.  You can choose to use a framelit that is  the next size up to create a mat of a different color of card stock; however, I believe this process makes the mat too large.  To get a perfect mat of a different color of card stock that is a reasonable size, try this tip:

  • Cut out your image with a framelit,
  • Window Frames Collection Framelits
  • Cut around the edge of the image using paper snips to leave only the outline of the stamp image,
  • Window Frames Collection Framelits
  • Cut a mat from a different color of card stock, using the same framelit.
  • Window Frames Collection Framelits
  • Now you have a perfect mat of a different color and a small size!

God’s Blessings!
