Last Week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa – Inspired by Wimbledon 2021

Every year, around this time, I design a project inspired by Wimbledon for my Card & (Your) Cuppa Class.

These projects are normally in Wimbledon colours. However, as we now have a Strawberry Bundle (Sweet Strawberry Stamp Set and Strawberry Builder Punch), it seemed appropriate to make a strawberries and cream project for this year.

Using the Stitched With Whimsy Dies and cutting around the outside edge, the Gorgeous Grape picnic blanket takes shape. I then added a grid pattern using my Simply Scored.

After this was attached, it was time to create the bowl of strawberries.

Layering circles in Very Vanilla and Daffodil Delight are stuck together and have their edges curled using a Paper Folder.

The strawberries, in Poppy Parade and Real Red have a touch of extra colour and shading added with a Sponge Dauber. Next, the stalks complete them.

These are added to the bowl, with the three front ones raised up on dimensionals.

A sentiment, from the Sweet Strawberry Stamp Set, part of a Bundle, is tucked behind the bowl.

Finally, some Opal Rounds add some sparkle.

Last Week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa – Spring Daisies

For last week’s Card & Cuppa I wanted to celebrate the arrival of Spring with these fresh spring daisies.

My daisies are different shades of yellow, So Saffron, Daffodil Delight and Bumblebee onto Pear Pizzazz and Soft Sea Foam greens.

I’ve added some extra texture to the Pear Pizzazz piece by scoring lines using my Metric Plate on my Simply Scored tool.Spring Daisies. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG DesignsA piece of my favourite (and thankfully not retiring!) Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon makes a pretty bow.

Make sure you take a look at the Retiring List and purchase your favourite items while you can.

Each daisy has some Wink of Stella in the middle, before the the Opal Rounds are added.

My project is currently left blank, so is perfect for any occasion. You can easily add a sentiment to tailor it as needed.

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.

Soft Sea Foam Birthday

I don’t have a Card & Cuppa project from last week to show you as there wasn’t a class. Instead, I’m sharing this Soft Sea Foam Birthday Card I made for one of my regular Card & Cuppa attendees.

When Soft Sea Foam appeared as one of the new colours, this lady fell in love with it, so I had to use it on their card.

This is another diagonal design card, similar to this project and this project I’ve shown you recently.

The bottom of the piece is scored at 1cm intervals using the Simply Scored Tool and Metric Plate to give a textured effect.

Using Call Me Clover as an accent colour, I’ve take the flower from Love What you Do and coloured it with Soft Sea Foam using Blender Pens.

A strip of Ribbon and layer in Call Me Clover and sentiment from Happy Birthday Gorgeous add more co-ordinating accents.

Finally, the flowers have Wink of Stella brushed on them for some added sparkle.

As this card was delivered by hand, the layers were put together with Dimensionals. I’d normally use SNAIL to create flatter layers for those requiring posting.
