Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Dragonfly Dreams creates a buzz

Last week’s Card & Cuppa was a hive of activity with 7 attendees creating the following project:

Dragonfly Dreams Stampin' Up! UK

Even though I don’t take the Big Shot to Card & Cuppa classes, we still used an Embossing Folder and Framelit.  You don’t have to have a Big Shot to use dies and embossing folders.

To create the honeycomb effect, we turned the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder into a Stamp.  We did this by using a Stampin’ Pad to ink up the Embossing Folder applied pressure to transfer the ink.  Cutting out sections of the Crushed Curry piece and then sticking to the Very Vanilla piece made a hive effect.

Bees were stamped directly onto the project with another onto a separate piece of cardstock.  As we were fussy cutting the separate bee, we created a cutting guide by drawing around the co-ordinating framelit.  This gave a more professional look with smooth curved outlines around the feelers and wings.

A play on words sentiment and Linen Thread add the finishing touches with Wink of Stella on the yellow parts of the bee for some sparkle.

If you’d like to join us at next week’s Card & Cuppa classes, please make sure you book your place by 18:00 the night before.

Happy crafting
