   Do you ever start making a card going in one direction then do something completely different? I did with this one.  I had planned to use all the colors in this Product Suite and ended up only using two.   I’m really happy with how it turned out though…and….happy to see that this stamp set and die set are in the new catalog!

   A long time ago, Stampin’ Up! had a really cool classic car stamp set, convertibles I think…I didn’t buy it and was sorry I hadn’t…and have been waiting all these years for Stampin’ Up! to come out with another classic car stamp set! The gear dies make it even more fun!!

    I’m working at getting into a routine again, surgery, and other health issues, then back to back to back…weekends away are hazardous to a work schedule! Life!!

    I wanted to show you how fun the Tea Room Memories & More Card Pack is. All the M & M Card Packs make it fun, fast and easy to make a bunch of cards in a relatively short time. I used the Tea Room Cards to make customer thank you cards for my Card Buffet friends.

This was one of my favorites. I just used the Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut the “Hello” card and used another small card as a mat for it.  I used two of the larger cards, cut them…didn’t even measure…wrapped some ribbon around in a couple places, added a self-adhesive “Fly” die cut that comes with the Pack and there you go! Easy Peasy!

I also used the Large and Small Whisper White Cards & Envelopes that fit the Card Packs perfectly. Here’s some of the other cards I made with the Card Pack:
