Cuppa and Cards - June: Under My Umbrella

I'm excited to share a sneak of my next Cuppa and Card class for June. We will be showcasing the awesome new Under My Umbrella stamp.
Originally I was planning on using the 6x6 stacks as part of the class kits, but due to them having been on the retirement list, they have since sold out!
So I've decided that we will hold off starting this class until 11th June. This allows you to place your Cuppa and Card class product purchases on 3rd June, when the new catalogue goes live.
The items that you will need to purchase to participate in the class are:

  • Under My Umbrella Stamp Set: 151518 $28.00
  • Brights 6x6 Designer Series Stack: 152487 $20.00
  • Optional Extra: I would highly recommended adding the coordinating punch to your order. It will save you a lot of fussy cutting: 151293 $31.00

Card kits will be sent out as soon as your order has been placed. Classes will be each Thursday at 1pm via Zoom, which will be recorded and shared on my Facebook page and Youtube on the same day.

Happy Crafting,

Watercolour Blossoms - Many Layered Blossoms

I had so much fun creating this card. If you happened to catch me last Sunday on my Facebook live with my regular Sunday session you would have seen me pull out a brand new die from the upcoming Annual Catalogue. There was a card in the catalogue that inspired me to purchase the Many layered Blossoms die and so I decided to have a go at recreating it. I've got to say I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!

How gorgeous is it!! I grabbed a huge collection of inks, die cut the flowers from our watercolour paper and got painting. I decided to paint the fuller die with lighter shades of colour and then, with the thinner die, I painted it with a slightly deep shade, so it would stand out more.
When choosing which card base to place it on, I really couldn't decided between Petal Pink or Coastal Cabana, so I decided now would be a great time to try out a technique that I had seen Jennifer McGuire use. It's where you split the die cut in half so it can then be used to create two cards. Because this die is so large it was perfect for this technique. It also meant, I didn't have to choose, as I could create two cards!
This layered blossom die is absolutely stunning and there is so much potential with it. I really can't wait to play some more with it very soon.

If you would like your very own copy of the new catalogue and you don't already have a demo, then fill out the form found HERE and I will get one sent to you. Australian address only unfortunately.

Kindness is always in Style - Dressed to Impress

Kindness really is always in Style and when you use the Best Dressed suite you can guarantee your cards will be too.

This is the last card from my Online class and today it's all about the gorgeous handbags, which I fussy cut from the Best Dressed designer series paper.
 And it has been awhile since I last used my favourite embossing folder, Scripty, so I felt that it was time I used it again. I was so thrilled to see that this folder will be with us for at least another year, as it's in the upcoming 2020/21 Annual catalogue. Along with some other gorgeous new folders.

I decided to pair Blackberry Bliss with a pop of Purple Posy and I really do love those two colours together. And just how cute are those little purses and handbags!!

If you would like to order any of the products I've used today, then feel free to pop along to my Online Store. And if you need any help, please don't hesitate to contact me. I love to hear from you all!

Cuppa and Cards: You are Simply Wonderful - Bloom & Grow

Welcome back for this weeks Cuppa and Cards, card and this week I'm sharing my love of a new colour combo that I've found which is Pretty Peacock and Bermuda Bay.

These colours are just so pretty together. I also added a little bit ink blending, with Bermuda Bay behind that beautiful bloom stamp, which I think just makes the embossing pop!

I love adding white embossing to black cardstock and I think it's the perfect sentiment for this card. Alittle bit of fussy cutting and you have a gorgeous greeting.

Thank you for checking out this weeks Cuppa and Card class. Make sure you check back in again next Friday!

Buy the Shoes - Dressed to Impress

Another gorgeous card for you all today, using the Best Dressed suite. This time I've used the "other" side of the Best Dressed designer series paper and I'm showing off the gorgeous floral design paper.

I just love all the shoes that are in the Best Dressed paper and I couldn't help but fussy cut out a pair of the beautiful high heals to add to this card front.

The sentiments from the Dressed to Impress stamp set are fantastic and these would make awesome cards for teenage, girlie girls. Or in my cause, I think my Mum would love this card, so I've popped it in the post to her today!

This was another card that my girls who attended my online classes got to make and they all absolutely loved this one too. It's such a great all rounder.

If you live in Australia and would be interested in "coming along" to one of my online classes. Just click HERE and you'll find all the information on them.
