Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Punch Art Bunnies

For last week’s Card & Cuppa session, I created these cute punch art bunnies. Perfect for both Easter and non-Easter events.

These bunnies are made from the Daisy Punch, Medium Daisy Punch, Vases Builder Punch and Circle Punches. Plus a die cut shape from the Wiggly Bugs Dies for the grass.

I chose Soft Sea Foam for my background to make it look like a nice big, open space, with Old Olive for the grass. The bunnies were Soft Suede and Crumb Cake.

As you can see, the daisy shapes made the ears. The vase builder shape made the bodies of the smaller bunnies, with the flat edge carefully hidden behind the grass.

For the larger bunny, the vase shape created the head, with the top of the shape rounded to make the top of the head.

Finally, Whisper White Baker’s Twine tied into a bow made a fun tail.

Bugs, Beasts & Butterflies – Wiggle Worm Bundle Birthday Card

I’m sharing another project from my Bugs, Beasts & Butterflies class and it’s this Wiggle Worm Bundle Birthday Card.

This is actually the card I sent to my Dad for his Birthday as he’s a huge fan of bugs and creepy crawlies. He loved it!

The worm is my favourite character from the set, so he had to be included. With the way he faces, the mantis was the obvious choice to pair with him, as it looks like they are having a conversation.

Using Soft Suede to stamp on Crumb Cake and Garden Green onto Pear Pizzazz, the bug and worm were created. A Blender Pen was then used to just pull some of the colour across the pieces before they were cut out using the matching dies, along with the grass too.

Just a few of the little flying bugs across the top of the project add an extra bit of fun. These were also given a bit of colour using a Blender Pen.

Finally, a sentiment using the Label Me Bold Stamp Set. The set we used the most at this class was added.

I’ve since discovered similar designs on the web (deliberate pun to fit with the bug theme!) and it looks like I may have used them for my inspiration. However, the images and shapes I used just fitted nicely into this composition. Great minds and all that!

Don’t forget that there are only a few days left of Sale-A-Bration as it ends on 31st March.

During this pandemic, my face-to-face classes have obviously stopped. But, I’m offering postal classes with a video craft-along. Check out all of the different options I have available, from crafting yourself to me sending a handmade card on your behalf, plus children’s classes too.

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Wiggle Worm Bundle

At a Card & Cuppa for Children recently, we used the Wiggle Worm Bundle. Well, it only seemed fair that the adult class should have a play with this fab bundle too!

This project is similar to this one the children made, with a few tweaks.

The Artisan Textures Stamp Set in Granny Apple Green makes the grass, with Balmy Blue for the clouds.

Wiggle Worm Stamp Set images are stamped in Basic Gray and then coloured with Watercolor Pencils. They are then cut out using the fabulous co-ordinating dies.

An added leaf, the more detailed flowers and the sentiment are all in Call Me Clover.

Finally, the sentiment is cut out using the Balloon Bouquet Punch and attached to the worm using Baker’s Twine. This has been coloured with a Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend to co-ordinate the colours.

With this Wiggle Worm Bundle, you can be as realistic or as abstract as you like with the colours.

My favourite character in this set is the worm. It’s got a cheeky charm!

Why not join us at a future Card & Cuppa session. There are three venues to choose from. Book your place by 18:00 the day before.

Card & Cuppa for Children – Cute Creepy Crawlies

It was our final Card & Cuppa for Children session of the summer this week. The theme was Mini Beasts so I designed this card with Cute Creepy Crawlies using the new Wiggle Worm Bundle.

Everything is from the Wiggle Worm Stamp Set and Wiggly Bug Dies Bundle, except the grass. I used a stamp from Artisan Textures for this.

The colour combination is Granny Apple Green, Balmy Blue and Daffodil Delight with Whisper White. The cute creepy crawlies are stamped in Basic Gray.

After stamping and using the dies to cut out the bugs, Watercolor Pencils were used to colour them.

Finally, the sentiment from the set was added and the mini beasts attached.

This set was clearly a hit with the children who attended, and some of their adults too!
