This is the penultimate project from my Bugs, Beasts & Butterflies Class and it uses the lovely Little Elephant Stamp Set and matching punch. I couldn’t run a ‘beasts’ class without including an elephant! This project would be great for a new baby congratulations, or a Birthday with a change of sentiment. The colours are
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
I’ve recently welcomed a new team member to my Stampin’ Up! Team – The Lilypad Crafters. Obviously being a crafting team, my new team member needed a handmade card. As I was creating several cards for different occasions, I used the same design as this project, with a few tweaks. Don’t be afraid to use
At last week’s Card & Cuppa session we had fun with Gallery Grunge. This card is a version of another recent class project with a few changes. I’ll be showing you that project another day. The colour combination is Blackberry Bliss, Highland Heather and Pool Party. I think you’ll agree that they look fabulous together.
At last week’s Card & Cuppa Class I used a stamp set that I’ve only recently purchased, Serene Garden. I’d been looking for another stamp set that is good for colouring and this fit the bill perfectly. The two corner pieces stamped in Old Olive create a lovely frame. Using Watercolor Pencils, the leaves are
There isn’t a Card & Cuppa project to share with you this week, but, I do have a card I made for one of my regular Card & Cuppa attendees. They have recently landed a job so I’m saying Congratulations with Varied Vases as my main design element. I’ve taken inspiration from this project and
I’d been asked for cards suitable for Wedding Anniversaries, so I decided to create this Very Vanilla project. It’s a one colour project with highlights of colour from the Soft Suede stamping and Metallic-Edge Ribbon. The background texture is made from 3 different size circles stuck over the card, plus a large circle to sit
The penultimate project from my recent Lovely As a Tree Class is all about the grunge. This uses sponge daubers for most of the inking, including colouring the tree in two colours for a natural look. For the grunge look, screw up a piece of Whisper White Cardstock into a ball several times to create
Instead of working with a particular stamp set at last week’s Card & Cuppa classes, I chose to focus on a set of tools instead. The tools were sponges. The background uses one of the Decorative Masks and a Sponge Brayer to apply the colours. Here it’s Lovely Lipstick with Cajun Craze over the top.
For last week’s Card & Cuppa session, I chose to use Picture Perfect Birthday. There was only one session due the Bank Holiday, but the lucky attendees got to use some new products. As I also needed a Birthday card for my Mother-in-Law, I decided to use it as the class project. A two-for-one project.
