Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Botanical Bliss

As last week’s Card & Cuppa was the final one before we head into Christmas cards, I decided to use Botanical Bliss. I’ve not used this stamp set at class before but it has some useful sentiments in a fabulous font. It also has some lovely botanical images in flowers, leaves and a bird. To

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Tailored Tag Punch

After the random nature of the previous week’s class, I chose the Tailored Tag Punch for this clean and precise project. It’s similar to this project I’ve taught previously, but this one covers the whole card front. The project uses 10 Tailored Tag Punch shapes – 5 in each colour, plus a sentiment. ‘Happy Birthday’

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Floral Grunge

At last week’s Card & Cuppa classes it was the turn of this floral grunge project. I know this type of crafting doesn’t suit everyone, but it’s good to step outside your comfort zone every now and then. This project is inspired by Page 157 of the Annual Catalogue where I’ve made a few changes.

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Thinking of You

At a recent Card & Cuppa class, the attendees suggested a Sympathy or Thinking of You card as a future project. This project uses the versatile Rooted in Nature Stamp Set and I took my inspiration from this previous class project. Crumb Cake tone-on-tone stamping creates a pretty background. The Detailed Trio Punch quickly rounds

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Layers and Leaves

Last week’s Card & Cuppa project was inspired by Page 119 of the Annual Catalogue. My version has layers and leaves. As I don’t use the Big Shot at my Card and Cuppa classes due to space limitations, I chose to use punches to create the layers instead. Soft Sea Foam creates the gorgeous base

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Serene Garden

At last week’s Card & Cuppa Class I used a stamp set that I’ve only recently purchased, Serene Garden. I’d been looking for another stamp set that is good for colouring and this fit the bill perfectly. The two corner pieces stamped in Old Olive create a lovely frame. Using Watercolor Pencils, the leaves are

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Flowers and Dots

It was the first Card & Cuppa session after my holiday last week and the project was pink flowers and dots. I have made a similar project in the past but this has a different colour scheme and uses different flowers. The colour combination is Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo and Berry Burst with

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Touches of Texture in Monochrome

I’ve been asked to make a card similar to this one, so I opted for Touches of Texture in monochrome. I really enjoy monochrome projects, so this was fun to make. The card is in Grapefruit Grove and Whisper White, but the attendees chose their colour from the 2018-2020 In Color Collection. After some clever

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Varied Vases

Last week’s Card & Cuppa classes was the first class outing for the Varied Vases Bundle from the Annual Catalogue. There is a little trick to this project where the vases are stamped on the layer first. This allows the flowers to then be added in the individual vases. Each flower is then coloured using

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – A Very Vanilla Project

I’d been asked for cards suitable for Wedding Anniversaries, so I decided to create this Very Vanilla project. It’s a one colour project with highlights of colour from the Soft Suede stamping and Metallic-Edge Ribbon. The background texture is made from 3 different size circles stuck over the card, plus a large circle to sit
