As the Summer Holidays have rolled around again, it’s time for my annual Card & Cuppa for Children Classes. The venue I hold them at runs a themed set of activities each week. This week it was ‘Movie Mayhem’ and my punch art lion fitted this perfectly due to the newly released Lion King film.
For last week’s Card & Cuppa project I once again headed for the new Annual Catalogue and chose the fabulous Floral Essence from Stampin’ Up! The project is a collage and is inspired by the sample on Page 106. This Stamp Set is part of a Suite and I’ve taken my colour combination from the

At last week’s Card & Cuppa I decided to use products from the Annual Catalogue and reached for Falling Flowers. This card is similar to this one I made, it’s my interpretation of the picture on Page 143 of the AC. I chose Fresh Fig, Perfect Plum and Sweet Sugarplum to stamp the images from
At last week’s Card & Cuppa I reached for one of the FREE Sale-a-Bration Stamp Sets – Amazing You. Here is the project. All of the stamping is in Smoky Slate, with co-ordinating cardstock and ribbon. This is because every attendee used Watercolor Pencils of their choice to colour their flower. The Smoky Slate background,
At last week’s Card & Cuppa we used a brand new stamp set and matching punch from the Autumn/Winter Catalogue. It uses the Painted Harvest Stamp Set I showed you the other day.
