Time for Tea

Hi there, welcome to my little bit of the blogiverse.  Thank you so much for visiting.

It's been a while since I made  kinetic card - too long, in fact, so I reckoned it was high time I did!  I saw a card on YouTube (by Karen Burniston) that I liked and wanted to see if I could re-create it using Stampin' Up! products.  Here's my card, which is based on the Circle card thinlits die.

I love a nice cup of tea, myself.  There are those who thrive on coffee (including my husband) but for me it's tea - Earl Grey, hot!  So naturally, I wanted to feature a teapot in proud of place.  

Open the card and the cup inside moves over to join its partner -

It's probably easiest to show it in action on the video tutorial - 
I've been hoping for something like the "Cups & Kettle" dies for some time now, so you can bet that I was thrilled to bits when I saw the set in the Stampin' Up! Spring/Summer Catalogue.  And you can count on seeing more projects using the dies - so you have been warned.

By the way, have you noticed the new blog/video schedule? I'm now blogging/YouTubing on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays and it seems to be going OK so far. Hope I haven't jinxed myself by saying that...

Anyway, with any luck - I'll see you back here on Thursday.

Crafty Hugs,



  1. I love your flip card with the teapot and mugs. Just wondering what page or number are the thinlit dies and do they come as a bundle.

    1. They are on page 34 of the Occasions catalogue and are going to retire at the end of May. They are selling out very fast.
      They are part of a bundle but not with the stamps I used, which are on Page 12 - and which are being carried over into the new catalogue.


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time to leave one.
