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

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

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

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Lovely Lipstick

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

Lovely As a Tree – A serene scene

This serene scene is the final project from my Lovely As a Tree Papercrafting Class. It’s also a design I’ve used before, but have updated to include new colours and ribbons. We begin by stamping the trees first at different heights using first and second generation images. It’s good to make sure that there is

Lovely As a Tree – All about the grunge

The penultimate project from my recent Lovely As a Tree Class is all about the grunge. This uses sponge daubers for most of the inking, including colouring the tree in two colours for a natural look. For the grunge look, screw up a piece of Whisper White Cardstock into a ball several times to create

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
