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

It’s a one colour project with highlights of colour from the Soft Suede stamping and Metallic-Edge Ribbon.

I hope you’re enjoying the Bank Holiday. It doesn’t seem possible that it will be September next week. For last week’s Card & Cuppa session I decided to revisit a project I’d made previously and give it a Lovely Lipstick twist. The secret of this project is the simplicity. As this card only needs two

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Anyone for ice cream?

Last week it was our final Card & Cuppa for Children session of the holidays and the theme was Summer. Once again I decided that both the adult Card & Cuppa class and the children’s class should make the same project. When I think of summer I think of sitting on a beach with an

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Punch Art Dragon

Last week’s Card & Cuppa project, this punch art dragon has a bit of twist. I hold separate Card & Cuppa for Children projects during the summer holidays and usually design a separate project for them as well. This year, I decided that both the adult and children sessions should make the same project. The

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – High Tide Lighthouse

I was asked to design a project using the ‘lighthouse set’, so here is the High Tide lighthouse. I’ve used a Crumb Cake layer for the stamping as it allows the lighthouse and rays to stand out more. The sepia-type tones of Soft Suede for the headland and sun/moon, Crumb Cake for the sea and

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – All about sponges

Instead of working with a particular stamp set at last week’s Card & Cuppa classes, I chose to focus on a set of tools instead. The tools were sponges. The background uses one of the Decorative Masks and a Sponge Brayer to apply the colours. Here it’s Lovely Lipstick with Cajun Craze over the top.

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Inspired by roses

Last week’s Card & Cuppa project was inspired by roses. I have a beautiful rose bush in my front garden that blooms throughout the summer and this year is no exception. In fact the blooms are so pretty that I just had to take a picture. So, when I was thinking about a project for
