Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Flower Shop meets Bunch of Blossoms

Happy Monday!

At last week’s Card & Cuppa class we created a pretty Birthday Card using the Neutral colour family.

Stampin' Up! Flower Shop and Blossom Builder with HIPPOFROG Designs

My inspiration for this project came from flicking through the Annual Catalogue.  When I reached Page 97 I saw a layout I liked and set about changing the stamp sets and colours.

Using the Watercolor Wash Stamp to create the background in Crumb Cake, I teamed this with Soft Suede and Very Vanilla for lovely sepia tones.

Flower Shop and Bunch of Blossoms Stamp Sets met, along with the Pansy Punch and Blossom Builder Punch to create the floral pieces.

A length of Linen Thread wrapped around the card and finished with a bow just add a classy touch.  We then used Wink of Stella Clear to add a touch of sparkle to the flowers which turns a lovely golden colour when you use it on Soft Suede 🙂

Some Rhinestones were then dotted across the project to finish.

This week is our final ‘normal’ card before we head into making Christmas Cards over the next three weeks.

If you’d like to join us at a Card & Cuppa session then book your place by 18:00 the day before.

A tiny card with a big meaning

As you know, I held a Charity Card Making Day earlier this month in aid of a local Milton Keynes Hospice.

One of the options for the Create, Take and Donate Day was to make 20 cards. This was using the Soft Sayings Kit and then donating 10 of the cards made.

I had a number of ladies who chose to do this, so I made a little card that greeted each of them to say thank you for supporting the day.  It’s a tiny card with a big meaning.

Stampin' Up! Flower Shop

The card is 3×3″ and fits in one of the new 3×3 Envelopes from the Autumn/Winter Catalogue.

I’ve used the Color Theory DSP Stack and co-ordinating cardstock and ink to create the flowers.  There is even room for a bit of bling too!

These cute cards are great to have on hand to send a quick note.  They are also great for making in batches and putting into the new Mini Pizza Boxes as a pretty gift.

Head to my class timetable for details of my next classes and to book your place.

Customer Thank you Cards – Night of Navy and Whisper White

It brings a smile to my face when I receive orders from you. So, to return the favour, I send Thank you cards – a smile with a fold in the middle.

If you’ve recently placed an order with me, in person or online, you should have received one of these Night of Navy and Whisper White cards.

Stampin' Up! UK Flower Shop

I’m a fan of monochromatic projects and took my colour inspiration from the Floral Boutique Washi Tape sitting on my desk.

I then reached for my Night of Navy and Whisper White inkpads, Flower Shop Stamp Set and co-ordinating Pansy Punch .

Instead of stamping Night of Navy onto Whisper White, I reversed this and stamped the flowers in Whisper White.  White Ink won’t be available to purchase until the new Catalogue is launched as it is being reconfigured.

Firstly, I stamped the sentiment from Thankful Thoughts using Night of Navy.  I then complemented this by adding strips of the Washi Tape before attaching the flowers.  This Washi Tape is on the Retiring List so remember to stock up before it goes for good.

The finishing touch was a little hint of Wink of Stella in the centre of each flower.
