My name is Brandy Cox and I am a proud Stampin' Up Demonstrator. Stampin' Up has blessed my life and I get so much enjoyment out sharing my passion with others. Stampin Up has allowed me to discover a creative side I never knew that I had. I was always one of those girls that said "I'm not very crafty." But I quickly learned that we are all capable of creativity, it just takes the willingness to learn and experiment.

Tea Together – Retiring

[vc_row][vc_column width="2/3"][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/3"][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Today’s card features the Stampin’ Up! Tea Together Stamp Set and coordinating Tea Time Dies.  I’m sad this set will be retiring June 4th or while supplies last.  

The stamp background was created using the Stampin’ Up! Very Versailles Stamp Set.  It really added such a nice touch to this card.   My most favorite feature on this card is having the spout hold the beautiful gorgeous grape flower!!  

Thank you for stopping by Brandy’s Cards.  Please let me know if you need something or have any questions. I’m always glad to help!!

Happy Stamping!! Brandy

2. Use the Stampin’ Up! Tea Time Dies to die cut your tea pot.  

Tip: If you don’t have the Tea Time Dies… not to worry. You can hand cut out the tea pot leaving the white space in the handle.  Because you are layering it on Whisper White you hardly notice the hand isn’t cut out.
