Earlier this week I held one of my monthly Papercrafting Classes. The theme was Bugs, Beasts and Butterflies and the attendees all made 6 cards. The first was a butterfly card using the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set and co-ordinating Nature’s Thoughts dies. This combines Rococo Rose and Rich Razzleberry (a good tongue twister!) with Whisper
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
For last week’s Card & Cuppa project, I returned to the Annual Catalogue and a stamp set we hadn’t used for a while. Here’s the project using the beautiful Butterfly Gala Stamp Set. I chose a colour combination of Rich Razzleberry and Melon Mambo, a very popular combination with the attendees. An ombre background was
During this half-term holiday, I held one of my Card & Cuppa for Children classes and here is the project the young crafters made. I decided to use the fun Bonanza Buddies Stamp Set and Dies Bundle. There are several steps to this project as I teach the class in a round robin format. Then,
As well as my Christmas Stamp-a-Stack, I also run a Special Christmas Cards Class. The attendees make three Christmas Cards and envelopes that are for those special people in their life. These are the cards you give by hand. One of these is a card suitable for children (or big kids!) and it’s this cute
Yesterday, one of my ‘honorary’ nephews turned 5. I just knew I had to make him a Dino Days Birthday Card. This Bundle is perfect for children (of all ages!) and I love using the Brights colour family with it. For this project, it’s a combination of Poppy Parade, Mango Melody and Granny Apple Green.
At last week’s Card & Cuppa Class, the attendees made these beautiful butterflies. The project uses the fabulous Butterfly Gala Stamp Set and co-ordinating Butterfly Duet Punch. I chose a background of Soft Sea Foam as it is a lovely pale colour that works well with lots of other colours. Background leaves and the sentiment
As the previous week’s Card & Cuppa project was dog related, I decided to even things up. Last week’s card was a cat project made using the Nine Lives Stamp Set. For this cute ginger feline, I’ve used a Soft Suede outline and Pumpkin Pie stripes. It’s then cut out using the co-ordinating Cat Punch.
Once again I ran Card & Cuppa for Children this week and the theme was ‘We’re all going on a summer holiday’. Who can resist these fabulous ice lollies. First, the beach background was created using the clouds from Above the Clouds Stamp Set. The sea and beach were from the High Tide Stamp Set.

This fabulous stamp set co-ordinates with a new Medium Daisy Punch as well as being compatible with the previous Daisy Punch. The colour combination is a bright mix of 2018-2020 In Colors with Call Me Clover and Pineapple
