Last week we held our first Card & (Your) Cuppa session. These are my new virtual classes where the attendees are posted a kit and we craft together from our homes over video link, instead of in person. It was a strange experience, but it was lovely to ‘see’ and chat to the attendees as
For last week’s Card & Cuppa session, I designed this tulip-tastic project. It was deliberately sentiment-free to allow it to be sent as a pick-me-up to someone who is self-isolating or social distancing . I’ve used Lovely Lipstick and Grapefruit Grove for some brighter Spring colours. I’m going to miss these In Colors when they
At last week’s Card & Cuppa class, I based the project on this one, but used a trio of purples instead. I used Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape, plus Purple Posy in place of Whisper White/Vanilla. For the background stamping, an image from the Gallery Grunge Stamp Set provided the detail. As with the other
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

Each time I send out a catalogue, I include a card. This is my new catalogue happy mail. These cards can be kept, or the recipient of the catalogue can use them to send to someone else. I made two versions of this card, portrait and landscape as I couldn’t decide which one I preferred!
For last week’s Card & Cuppa project, I used the Timeless Tulips Bundle from the new Mini Catalogue. The stamp set is one from the DistINKtive range, so the impressions are even more fabulous. Add to that the matching punch, and you’re onto a winner. My colour combination was Poppy Parade and Daffodil Delight, keeping
Last week, I used the Little Elephant Stamp Set and Elephant Builder Punch at Card & Cuppa Classes for the first time. This card is perfect to celebrate any occasions, from Birthday to newborn. I teamed Smoky Slate with Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape for this project. The ribbon effect background is created by stamping
