Last Week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa – Layering Circles Dies

Last week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa project was my version of a project I’d seen on page 38 of the January-June Mini Catalogue.Layering Circles Dies. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs I chose Misty Moonlight, Petal Pink and Balmy Blue, along with White for my colour combination.

I’ve used Whisper White in my project, which has now been replaced with Basic White. See this post for full details while I work through my supply.

For my project I’ve create a two colour background, with the joins covered by the different size circles. All of the circles are cut using the Layering Circles Dies.

The Balmy Blue circle has been scrunched and carefully separated to create two circles.

On the focal circle, I recreated the image from the Catalogue using the Sprig Punch. The sprigs are coated with Wink of Stella to make them sparkle.

Using the Misty Moonlight and White pieces first, the silver length is then wrapped around. As this bit has a mind of its own, I found it easier to not fight it!

Using a sentiment from the Quite Curvy Stamp Set this sits across the bottom.

Finally, Metallic Pearls are added.Layering Circles Dies. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

For this project, the attendees had lots of choices of how to create theirs. From clean lines to grunge, scrunching, arrangement of the circles, use of the twine and more.

Welcoming a New Team Member

Earlier this month, a Stampin’ Up! fan joined my team of Lily Pad Stampers .

Here is the card I sent to welcome them.

The Quite Curvy Stamp Set, with the matching Dies, from the January-June Mini Catalogue, allowed me to add a few of their favourite things on the card.

My colour combination for the cardstock is Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape and White.

I’ve used Whisper White in my project, which has now been replaced with Basic White. See this post for full details while I work through my supply.

A background using an image from the Forever Fern Stamp Set adds a pretty splatter effect. The sentiment in the corner is a great welcome message as they start their Stampin’ Up! journey.

After stamping the leaves and birds in Basic Gray, using the dies to cut them out, it was onto colouring. Stampin’ Blends in Old Olive, So Saffron, Petal Pink and Highland Heather to create a soft look.

As the recipient is also a big fan of Wink of Stella, the birds were given a touch of sparkle.

The pieces are then stuck to the card, with the birds raised up on Dimensionals.Welcoming a New Team Member. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs I then added some Pastel Pearls, again in Highland Heather to finish the card.

I know the new team member is going to enjoy purchasing their products (especially Wink of Stella) at a discounted price. Plus, as they have joined now, they have just been able to view the brand new Catalogue that is launching in May.

With the new Catalogue launching soon, some current products are retiring. Take a look at the Retiring List and be sure to get your hands on your favourite products before they leave us.

If you’d like to take the opportunity to join my team for just £99, then take a look at my FAQ or get in touch for a no-obligation chat.

It also uses a new item that will be available in the upcoming SAB too. The fabulous Oh So Ombre 6×6 DSP Pack is an item you’ll be able to earn for FREE during January and February 2021.

The wavy line is cut using the Curvy Dies. This piece is then stuck to the DSP.Quite Curvy Bundle. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

A sentiment follows the curve, with a few leaves stamped in the corner.

The corners are given a round shape with the Detailed Trio Punch to match the curvy details.

Leaves are then cut from the dies using the different parts of the DSP to create varying shades of Bermuda Bay.

These stuck behind a Whisper White flower cut using the Small Bloom Punch.

Finally, Metallic Pearls coloured with a Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend are added to the project.
