Last Week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa – Splendid Day Suite Collection

Last week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa project used items from the Splendid Day Suite Collection.

This fabulous new collection is in the July-December Mini Catalogue and contains a Stamp Set and Die Bundle, Specialty DSP, Ribbon and Embellishments.

For this project, I’ve used all of the items in the Suite, except the embellishments.

My colour combination of Soft Sea Foam, Fresh Freesia and Basic White is taken from the DSP.

This DSP is really difficult to photograph, so you’ll have to trust me when I say that it is simply gorgeous in the flesh.

Strips of the Specialty DSP create the background, with the foil side of some sheets and the non-shiny side for the others.

In the class packs there were strips from three sheets of the DSP. Even with this small number of sides to choose from, it was difficult to decide which pieces to use and where!

The strips were then joined by shapes cut using the coordinating Splendid Stems Dies from the Suite.

A length of the gorgeous Seam Binding Ribbon sits behind the sentiment.

The sentiment is from the Splendid Thoughts Stamp Set and cut out using the Lasting Label Punch. This punch is not part of the set!

Using Dimensionals, the sentiment is raised up to give some extra depth.

Introduction to In Color Class – All Five Together

Today I’m sharing the final project from my annual Introduction to In Color Class, where it’s all five together.

It’s become tradition over the years that the project that uses all five colours together is a striped one. This year is no exception!

Of course, the colours used are the In Colors 2022-2024, along with Basic White. You can make a lot of these cards from one In Color A4 Cardstock pack.

Each colour is used to create the stripey background. One of the most difficult parts of this design is choosing which order to put the colours in.

In their class kits, the attendees received lengths of In Color Baker’s Twine, and these are wrapped around the project.

A sentiment from the Hello Beautiful Stamp Set is cut out using the new Lasting Label Punch from the Annual Catalogue. This is raised up on Dimensionals over the Baker’s Twine.

Finally, coordinating large and small embellishments from the In Color Matte Decorative Dots are added.

Here are all of the projects from the class. Do you have a favourite?
