I’ll often ask the attendees to suggest cards they would like to make at Card & Cuppa sessions. A recent suggestion was a generic Birthday card, something suitable for both male and female. This project is a combination of this card and this one. It’s a great idea to combine elements of projects you have
Last week’s Card & Cuppa project was this pretty Birthday card, made using the Perennial Birthday Stamp Set. I used a combination of Rococo Rose, Merry Merlot and Old Olive for this project, along with Very Vanilla. We used the fabulous ‘Pearlized Doilies’ as a background. These are white on one side with a silver
I made this pair of pink and purple Birthday cards for two lovely ladies. One lady likes pink, the other purple, so I made the same design in different colours. It also helps that the ladies won’t see each other! The purple design uses Highland Heather and Purple Posy, the pink one uses Blushing Bride
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.
Last week was the start of my evening Christmas Card Classes, so I decided that the Card & Cuppa attendees shouldn’t miss out. Also, as it was Half-Term, I held a Card & Cuppa for Children Class. Rather than designing a separate project for them, I chose to use the same project for all of
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
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
For last week’s Card & Cuppa Class, it was the turn of the Floral Essence and Perennial Birthday Stamp Sets. The Floral Essence Stamp Set is part of a Bundle with the Perennial Flower Punch. A colour combination of Blushing Bride, Merry Merlot, Mossy Meadow and Whisper White work really well with this project. Petal
The penultimate project from my Mostly Men Class is this gorgeous Just For You Card. It’s a combination of Old Olive, Soft Suede, Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Very Vanilla. The tree ‘cookie’ is stamped off several times to create a softer tone. Then the tree is stamped over the top. On a separate piece
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.
