Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Tulip-tastic

For last week’s Card & Cuppa session, I designed this tulip-tastic project. It was deliberately sentiment-free to allow it to be sent as a pick-me-up to someone who is self-isolating or social distancing . I’ve used Lovely Lipstick and Grapefruit Grove for some brighter Spring colours. I’m going to miss these In Colors when they

Today I’m sharing the card I sent to another friend who is going through a tough patch. This was sent before the pandemic and the need to sent positive thoughts now seems even more appropriate.

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – A Trio of Purples

At last week’s Card & Cuppa class, I based the project on this one, but used a trio of purples instead. I used Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape, plus Purple Posy in place of Whisper White/Vanilla. For the background stamping, an image from the Gallery Grunge Stamp Set provided the detail. As with the other

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Petal Washi Tape and Very Versailles

For last week’s Card & Cuppa project, I revisited the fabulous Petal Washi Tape from the Annual Catalogue. I hadn’t used this for a while, and it was sitting folornly on my desk, so I decided to give it an outing. It’s teamed here with the Very Versailles Stamp Set to create a vintage look.

A couple of friends are going through some tough times at the moment. To let them know I was thinking of them, I sent them a ‘hug in an envelope’. Here is one of the cards I made using the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set. The Positive Thoughts Stamp Set is from the Mini Catalogue and

Breathtaking Bouquet with Stampin’ Blends

Have you skipped over the Breathtaking Bouquet Background Stamp in the new Mini Catalogue? I know I did to begin with, but each time I flipped through, something about it drew me in. Well, it arrived last week and I’m pleased it ‘accidentally’ fell into my shopping basket. As you know, I’m a big fan
