Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Beautiful You Trio

Due to the Bank Holiday we only had one Card & Cuppa session last week.  It was a busy one though as 7 people had booked to attend and we ended up taking over most of the cafe!

Everyone had a choice of which lady they wanted to make from this Beautiful You trio.

Stampin' Up! Beautiful You Trio

Each lady is made in the same way using the paper piecing technique.  However, we made our own patterned paper to use.

A lady from the Beautiful You Stamp Set is first stamped onto our final piece and again onto a separate piece of Whisper White Cardstock.

To create our patterened paper we stamped the dots from the Playful Backgrounds Stamp Set in Daffodil Delight over the second image.  This was then coloured over the top of with a Calypso Coral Watercolor Pencil to create a summery look.

We then cut out this coloured piece and used SNAIL to stick it to the other stamped lady.  The hats/umbrella on our final piece is coloured using a Daffodil Delight Watercolor Pencil.

To finish, the sentiment was punched out and stuck onto a piece of the fabulous new Double-Stitched Ribbon in Daffodil Delight.  This ribbon has cross stitch on one side and running stitch on the other, so double the fun!

Here are each of the ladies in a bit more detail.

Next we have the lady that I like to call the ‘wedding guest’ as she looks very chic.

Finally, the lady with the umbrella, or parasol depending on your point of view!

Which of the designs is your favourite?  Which one of this Beautiful You trio would have chosen to make?

If you’d like to join us at a future Card & Cuppa session then make sure you book your place by 18:00 the night before.

Happy crafting
