Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Autumnal Diagonal Slash

Hope you are enjoying this Bank Holiday Monday and that the weather is being kind to you.

Although it is August, it was rather autumnal when I was creating the project for last week’s Card & Cuppa.

Here it is.

Stampin' Up! Lovely as a Tree

It’s a diagonal slash card that we haven’t made for about a year, and will be great for a male or those autumn Birthdays.

Lovely as a Tree just had to make an appearance for this one.

Firstly, the leaves were stamped in Soft Suede with the smaller leaves in Always Artichoke.  Next, we coloured the leaves using a Blender Pen, before creating the slash.

Strips of Linen Thread wrapped behind the cut out leaf give a bit of texture. The sentiment finishes the project nicely.

To join us for a Card & Cuppa session, book your place by 18:00 the day before.

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa for Children – Bob the Minion

At the previous week’s Card & Cuppa for Children session, I mentioned that a Minion might be putting in an appearance the following week.

As the child was returning that week, this was met with a large smile along with information that Bob was their favourite!

So, here’s Bob the Minion, Hippofrog Designs style!

Stampin' Up! Punch Art Minion

This project uses a LOT of different stamp sets (listed below) along with some punch art.  The main colours I’ve used to create Bob are Daffodil Delight and Pacific Point.  There is also Pear Pizzazz and Cajun Craze for Bob’s trademark eyes.

Circle punches helped to round Bob’s head and arms.

We created the dungarees from a square of cardstock and cut out sections.  These sections were then put to use as the arm loops.

He is sitting on a decorated party background.

Now, Bob had a little accident at class and face-planted into the Pacific Point inkpad.  His eyes are now looking a little more blue!  Oops!

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Confetti Celebration

Happy Monday!

For last week’s Card & Cuppa I designed a card suitable for both male and female Birthdays.

Stampin' Up! Confetti Celebration

Using a design from the Annual Catalogue for my inspiration, we made this almost identical project.

A combination of Confetti Celebration Stamp Set, Night of Navy, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist and Silver 1/8″ are used on this project.  Tone-on-tone stamping is the technique used to create the background.

We then used the new Starburst punch to create the outer layer of the rosette.  It’s a punch I haven’t used much, but that will change as I love it!

I have to confess that I accidentally took the wrong punch to class with me!  The 2 1/4″ instead of the 2″ was in my bag so, as a result, the sentiment was too big for the Starburst.  However, the attendees were very creative and found their own ways to make it fit…

Here is the same design with Pool Party, Berry Burst and Powder Pink for a different look.
