Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – SAB Springtime Foils

Happy Monday!

For last week’s Card & Cuppa project, I designed a card using the fabulous SAB Springtime Foils DSP.

SAB Springtime Foils from Stampin' Up! Project from a HIPPOFROG Designs Card & Cuppa Class

This stunning DSP is thicker than usual and has 3 sheets of 4 different single-sided designs.  Each design has embossed patterns in either gold, rose gold, silver, or a mix, and they are perfect for colouring.

For this project we used the Sponge Brayers to add two colours to make a pretty ombre effect.  It’s important to use a tissue to remove the excess ink from the embossed foil areas, to avoid inky fingers!

As I didn’t want to detract from the background too much, I chose a simple design to create flowers using the Paint Play Stamp Set.

A strip of Sheer Ribbon in Whisper White and co-ordinating Silver Baker’s Twine cross the project and are perfect for the flowers to sit on.

Inking the edges of the sentiment with the Sponge Brayer continues the two-tone effect.

To carry on the silver and sparkle, Wink of Stella has been applied to the swirls on the flowers.

Why not join us for a future Card & Cuppa sessionBook your place by 18:00 the day before.

Customer Thank You Cards – Paint Play

Another big ‘thank you’ to everyone who has purchased products from me recently.  I really appreciate every order.

Here is the card my recent customers received.

Stampin' Up! Paint Play

I used the Paint Play Stamp Set and combined it with the new In Colors for 2017.  This Stamp Set and the In Colors are a fabulous fun, bright and cheery combination.  Each notecard then has a handwritten message from me inside.

I’m looking forward to creating the next batch.

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Paint Play

At last week’s Card & Cuppa class we used the brand new Paint Play Stamp Set from the Annual Catalogue.

Here is the project.

Stampin' Up! Paint Play

I just love this Paint Play Stamp Set as there are lots of different images you can use to create an infinite number of designs.

The images are paired with the new ‘In Color’ collection for 2017-19 to create this stylised flower in a pot.  It’s great how the new colours work so well together, Lemon Lime Twist adds a bit of zing!

Another new product we used was the Ticket Tear Border Punch to create the fun strip across the bottom.

This project was all about layering so we used a quarter of a doily and layered our images on top.

Dimensionals, both regular and mini helped to create depth.

I think this Stamp Set is going to make a few appearances at classes over the coming year…

To join us at a future Card & Cuppa session make sure you book your place by 18:00 the night before.
