Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Pretty Petal Park in Pinks

Last week’s Card & Cuppa project combined the Petal Park Stamp Set and coordinating punch with pinks.

My colour combination was Petal Pink and Flirty Flamingo, with Shaded Spruce and Basic White.

For the background, the marbled image from Artistically Inked Stamp Set is stamped in second generation to create a subtle pattern.

Next, the flowers and leaves from the Petal Park Stamp Set are stamped in Flirty Flamingo and Shaded Spruce onto a separate piece of cardstock.

They are coloured using the Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen, with a touch of Wink of Stella in the centre.

These are then cut out using the Petal Park Builder Punch.

Let’s eat cake is from the Hearfelt Hexagon Stamp Set and cut out using the coordinating punch from the Bundle in the Mini Catalogue.

This bundle is on the Last Chance Products list, along with other items I’ve used on this project. If you want to get your hands on these items before they retire, then make sure you check out the list to see what is still available.

All of the leaves and flowers are then stuck to the background.

A length of the Petal Pink Ribbon from the Ribbon Duo Pack creates a swoosh for the sentiment to sit above on Dimensionals.

Finally, some Iridescent Rhinestones provide some bling.

Countdown to Christmas 2022 – Week 11

Our penultimate Countdown to Christmas 2022 project is this fun parcel card. It is also the 4th and final project from my Crack Your Christmas Cards Class.

As with the other projects from the class, this design uses the Spruced Up Stamp Set and coordinating Spruced Up Outline Dies. It also uses the Real Red & Garden Green Ribbon Combo Pack and Seasonal Sequins too.

I have been using this design a lot recently and love how versatile it is.

The project uses 3 colours from the class colour palette, Crushed Curry, Real Red and Garden Green.

Presents are stamped across the background before the ribbon ‘wrapping’ is added.

Two circles cut using the Layering Circles Dies are then layered together, one with a sentiment stamped onto it.

Next, it was time to create the candy canes. As I wanted them to face in opposite directions, rather than the one way in the stamp set, I used a different method.

First, the cane shapes were cut out using the dies and laid next to each other straight edge to straight edge. Then, using the striped bauble image in the stamp set, the candy canes were given their stripes.

These were then glued together and a star was attached using a Glue Dot, before the whole piece was raised up using Dimensionals.

Finally, Seasonal Sequins are dotted across the project.

Don’t miss out on your chance to get your hands on all the retiring products from the July-December Mini Catalogue. Items are only available while stocks last.

Here are all of the projects from the class together. Do you have a favourite?

Crack Your Christmas Cards 2022 – Project 3

Another post that is more ‘Festive Friday’ than Finishing up Friday.

This project is the third from my annual Crack Your Christmas Cards Class.

It uses the same Spruced Up Stamp Set and coordinating Dies from the Class Kit as the previous projects. Along with the Ribbon Combo Pack and Seasonal Sequins.

My colour combination is three of the class colours, Real Red, Garden Green and Balmy Blue.

To begin, the background is stamped multiple times before a length of Ribbon sits on top of it to cover where the stamped pieces meet.

Next, parcels and snowflakes are stamped and die cut before being stuck to the edges of shape cut from the Decorative Circle Punch. I think this shape looks like a snowball at this time of year!

The whole shape is then stuck to the project using Dimensionals.

Finally, some coordinating Seasonal Sequins are added to the project to give a little bit of bling!

Don’t forget that if you want to get your hands on the Spruced Up Stamp Set and Dies at a great discount, they are on the Last Chance Products List and only available while stocks last.

Pop back tomorrow to see the 4th and final project from the class.

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Deer Builder Punch

As we have now reached December, my design for last week’s Card & Cuppa was a Christmas Card.

You’ve seen me create this design many times, but it’s not one that I’ve used at Card & Cuppa before.

This version uses a colour combination of Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla for a sepia tones type look.

The sentiment is from the Leaves of Holly Stamp Set. This is on the Last Chance List, so make sure you grab it while you can.

Stars are from the Alphabest Stamp Set and stamped multiple times. Wink of Stella is added to some of the stars to add some sparkle.

Lengths of Gold & Vanilla Satin Edged Ribbon are then used to create a parcel effect.

Rudolph is cut out using the Deer Builder Punch in Crumb Cake, with the antlers and eye cut from Soft Suede.

Using a Blending Brush, a color flare is added to the background and also to Rudolph’s body.

Two shapes from the Handmade Tag Punch are cut and offset with Rudolph on top.

This piece then sits at the intersection of the two ribbon pieces.

Finally, a Red Rhinestone shiny nose is added, along with some Seasonal Sequins.

Countdown to Christmas 2022 – Week 10

How is it already week 10 on this year’s Countdown to Christmas series?

Today’s project is the 2nd design from my Crack Your Christmas Cards Class, where everyone makes 16 cards (4 each of 4 designs).  I showed you project 1 yesterday.

All of the designs use the Spruced Up Stamp Set and coordinating Dies, along with the Real Red & Garden Green Combo Pack Ribbon and the Seasonal Sequins.

The Stamp Set, Dies and Sequins are on the Last Chance Products list, so grab then while you can as they are only available while stocks last.

Balmy blue stars, covering only one side make a lovely backdrop for the baubles.

The baubles are stamped in Red Red and Garden Green with a topper cut from Crushed Curry using the Dies.

The baubles are then mounted onto circles cut from the Layering Circles Dies, with a sentiment stuck on top..

Coordinating ribbon tails stick out from behind the circles.

Finally, some of the sequins are dotted around to finish the project.

Crack Your Christmas Cards 2022 – Project 1

Rather than Finishing Up Friday, it’s more of a Festive Friday as I’m sharing the first project from my recent Crack Your Christmas Cards 2022 Class.

Crack Your Christmas Cards is my annual Class where the attendees make 16 cards, 4 each of 4 different designs.

The class kit included the Spruced Up Stamp Set and Spruced Up Outline Dies (on the Last Chance Products List). A pack of Adhesive-Backed Seasonal Sequins and a Combo Pack of Real Red & Garden Green Ribbon was also included.

My color combination for the all of the projects across the class was Real Red, Garden Green, Balmy Blue and Crushed Curry. Some projects used all of the colours, others only two or three.

For this project, it’s essentially a version of this previous project.  This version uses the smaller tree for the background, with the larger tree stamped and cut out separately.

I like the addition of the stamped stars on the small trees.

A ribbon swoosh sits behind the sentiment and the sequins add  a finishing touch.

Make sure you don’t miss out on getting your hands on the Last Chance Products, they are only available while stocks last.

Pop back tomorrow to see the second project from the class.

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Go To Greetings

For last week’s Card & Cuppa project, we had reached ‘G’.

The Go To Greetings Stamp Set was the product of choice with this design. I’ve had this idea in my head for this stamp set for a while.

My colour combination was a autumnal one of Old Olive, Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze. I also wanted this project to have a more masculine feel.

Using each of the different versions of the same sentiment, the background was created.

Next, the required sentiment was stamped onto a separate sheet.

Some of the Glitter Washi Tape in coordinating Old Olive was popped behind. This product is on the Last Chance Products list as it is retiring from the July-December Mini Catalogue, so make sure you grab it while you can.

Finally, the sentiment was stuck on top and the overhanging pieces were cut away.

There are some other sentiments in this stamp set that also work with this design. It’s a quick and easy project to make and can be recreated using different colours, sentiments and embellishments.

Countdown to Christmas 2022 – Week 9

Week 9 of this year’s Countdown to Christmas series is also my final Christmas Card Club project of 2022.

It’s become a bit of a tradition for me to design a poinsettia Christmas Card, so I couldn’t resist adding one for my final Christmas Card Club project.

This card is a CASE of this previous project.

I chose a traditional colour combination of Real Red, Garden Green and Very Vanilla, with Gold Ribbon.

Lengths of the Gold Shimmer Ribbon are made to look like a present. This ribbon is on the Last Chance Products list as it is retiring from the July-December Mini Catalogue. Make sure you grab items on the list quickly as they may even be sold out by now.

The poinsettia is created using the Spruced Up Outline Dies, which are also on the retiring list.

These pieces are layered together on top of a shape cut from the Layering Circles Dies.

A sentiment, from the retiring Penguin Place Stamp Set sits behind the circle. It has the ends cut into a banner shape.

Finally, a Glossy Dot in Daffodil Delight creates the centre of the poinsettia.

I hope you’ve enjoyed all 6 of my Christmas Card Club projects.

Here they are all together. Do you have a favourite?
