Cup of Tea Birthday Cards for Facebook Live Crafting with Jill & Gez

Hi everyone,

Happy Sunday! Yesterday, Gez and I did our monthly live session over on our Facebook group - Come Crafting with Jill & Gez. If you'd like to join us live next month please do join our group - CLICK HERE. Normally we try to do our live crafting on the first Saturday of the month, but recently our social lives/holidays seem to have gotten in the way! 

Our theme for this month was to use our favourite products that will be retiring at the beginning of May as the Annual Catalogue and the spring Mini catalogue both come to the end of their sales period. I used quite a lot of retiring products as you will see!

Here are the cards I made on the live.

This year we are having a colour refresh and as well as getting some fab new colours, we will be losing some of my all time favourites. For my cards today I used three of the colours I will miss most - Polished Pink, Pear Pizzazz and Bermuda Bay. As I am typing this, all three are still available in my online shop in cardstock and ink pads.

The focus of my card is the Cup of Tea stamp set and matching Teacup dies. Again these are still available and even better, both are discounted. But don't hang around. Lots of retiring products have already sold out and products are only available while stocks last. 

Other retiring products I used are the Happiness Abounds stamp set (for the sentiments and still available at a reduced price), the Hive 3D embossing folder (sadly now SOLD OUT) and the Perfectly Penciled DSP (still available with a discount).

I added a panel on top of the embossed panel inside the card, to allow room for a message to be written inside. 

I gave all the measurements and instructions (I think!) on the video so if you need to know any of these please take a look.
