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 – 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

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

Gallery Grunge & Artisan Textures

I’ve once again returned from a fabulous fortnight in sunny Cyprus. The staff at the hotel we stay at are fabulous, so I made these Gallery Grunge & Artisan Textures thank you cards to hand out. The base card is a Very Vanilla Notecard with Fresh Fig as the main colour. A combination of the

Rooted in Nature Bundle in purple and blue

Autumn is here and it’s the perfect time for the Rooted in Nature Bundle. Here is an example in purple and blue. As you can see, I’ve not opted for the usual oranges, greens and browns for this project. It’s great to mix things up a bit with non-standard colour combinations. A lovely colour combination

Soft Sea Foam Birthday

I don’t have a Card & Cuppa project from last week to show you as there wasn’t a class. Instead, I’m sharing this Soft Sea Foam Birthday Card I made for one of my regular Card & Cuppa attendees. When Soft Sea Foam appeared as one of the new colours, this lady fell in love

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

Birthday Blues

It’s not really Birthday Blues, it’s a Birthday card for my Sister-in-Law in shades of blue. This is a project with no stamping at all. A simple colour combination of Pool Party and Pacific Point allow the Very Vanilla flower to really pop. The ombre stencil effect is using a Sponge Dauber and one of
