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.
Last week’s Card & Cuppa was all about the new Daisy Lane bundle from the Annual Catalogue. 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
I couldn’t not use my current favourite SAB stamp set to create this fun ‘Hoppy Birthday’ card. Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist and Whisper White come together to create this green project. Stampin’ Blends are my colouring product of choice for the frog and flying bug (not sure if it’s a dragonfly or butterfly!) Tone-on-tone
At last week’s Card & Cuppa classes it was the turn of this floral grunge project. I know this type of crafting doesn’t suit everyone, but it’s good to step outside your comfort zone every now and then. This project is inspired by Page 157 of the Annual Catalogue where I’ve made a few changes.
It was the first Card & Cuppa session after my holiday last week and the project was pink flowers and dots. I have made a similar project in the past but this has a different colour scheme and uses different flowers. The colour combination is Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo and Berry Burst with
Today I’m sharing something a little bit different. It’s a gift box made with the fabulous Wood Textures DSP. It’s nearing the end of term, so time to get ahead on gifts for teachers (or students). What better way to say Thank you than a gift in pretty handmade packaging? This box uses just one
