Butterfly Basics and Watercolour Wings


Next week I will be running a Butterfly Card class at my house.
I used Watercolour Wings for the first card. The Stamparatus is ideal for positioning the butterfly stamps so that they line up. The leaves are from the Painted Harvest set and the peekaboo peach background flower is the retired Saleabration Heartfelt Blooms.


 I used one of the matching dies for the second card. The sentiment is from Butterfly Basics as is the tiny flower accent.


Here is the same card in  a different colour and without the gold embossing.


Painted Harvest was used for the background behind the butterfly.
The colour combo is Pool Party, So Saffron and the returning Mint Macaron.


Sahara Sand was used for the card base in the last card. The beautiful flower is from the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set. For stamping I used Berry Burst and the retiring Wild Wasabi.

Stampin Up Mini Narrow Notecards and Envelopes with a Good Day Stamp Set and Tutti Frutti DSP


I love the Narrow Notecards and Envelopes from the Spring/ Summer Occasions Catalogue.
Teamed up with the Tutti Frutti DSP Stack and the Good Day Stamp set you can make a large variety of cute cards.
The first card has a tropical look.


I used the Blends Pens for colouring some of the cards and Stampin Write Markers for others.


The cute rabbit stamp could be used for a new baby tag or card.


The fruit images on this DSP Stack almost makes you want to eat the fruit.


Sarah Douglas did some simple cards with this DSP  stack and shared the idea of lining the top of the envelopes on the inside.


At the class last week we then made a little bag to hold the notecards and envelopes, using 2 sheets of the 6 x 6 inch DSP Stack and a small tag to finish it off.

Cake Soiree


We made some cards using the Cake Soiree Bundle and Embellishment Kit at my Craft Day last Saturday.The first card was very easy and quick using the embellishment kit.
the base card is Marina Mist which is a colour that I rarely use.


The second card was made using stamps and die cuts from the Bundle.
This one and the next were not made at the Craft day.
The base card is Berry Burst with some of the Cake Soiree DSP peeping out from under the Whisper White.


The Cake stamps beautifully and is fun to colour with ink pads and blender pens.The cake stand  was cut out of silver cardstock very easily. The word celebrate is one of the dies in a set from the Saleabration Brochure that you can get for free with a £90 order.
The DSP is from the Cake Soiree Suite.


The last card is an Eclipse Card. The letters were stamped with some of the flowers and leaf sprays from the Cake Soiree stamp set. The birthday sentiment is from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set in the Annual Catalogue.
The base card is Flirty Famingo and the embellishment is from the Cake Soiree Embellishment pack.
Thr embossing folder is Layered Leaves from the Annual Catalogue.

Waterfront Card Class




Waterfront has been one of the most popular stamp sets with my ladies from the Spring/Summer Occasions Catalogue. We used an Aquapainter on the stamped images to get a more blended effect.


The idea for the Sepia card was cased from a video on You Tube. We also did one using Smoky Slate, Basic Grey and black Archival  ink.


I adapted Patty Bennet's card for the beach scene. I changed some of the colours.The birds are from the High Tide Stamp Set in the Annual Catalogue.The sentiment is from the Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set.
