Coffee, Cards & Chat

Hello again,

On Friday we met up for our first monthly class of 2015 - Coffee, Cards & Chat, where my stampers can try out lots of different crafting products and tools. With the arrival of the new Spring/Summer catalogue plus the Sale-A Bration brochure there was no better time to do it!

 
We started with a thank you card using products from the Sale-A-Bration brochure. The bright and beautiful Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper & Ribbon, a sentiment from the Simply Wonderful stamp set, coloured in with Blendabilities and punched out with the Decorative Label Punch. Layered up on a Coastal Cabana card base with a 2 1/2" Crushed Curry circle and you have a bright, colourful thank you card in no time!

 
The Butterfly Basics Bundle was up next, already a firm favourite of mine,  everyone agreed that this was a fab bundle to have, the possibilities with this set are endless!
On a Naturals White card, we stamped the images in Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Calypso Coral and Momento Tuxedo Black Ink before we cut out the beautiful butterflies with the matching thinlit dies.

 
For our third card we used the Lotus Blossom stamp set and I more or less cased the card from page 6 of the Sale-A-Bration brochure.
 
The blossom is stamped in three steps and you can either go from light to dark or dark to light, simply
 
try what works best for you.
 
We stamped the solid image in Crisp Cantaloupe (once stamped off) first , followed by the large textured piece, again in Crisp Cantaloupe and finished with the inside petals in Calypso Coral.
The flower is so beautiful and doesn't need much more to create a stunning card. We added a simple background from the Gold Soiree DSP, a small piece of Tea Lace Paper Doily, a string of Gold Baker's Twine and a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
 
 
A little gift in form of a mini desk calendar, which I already shared yesterday, as well as the new catalogues were waiting for each stamper on their arrival.
 
 
If you are local and would like to come along to the next Coffee, Cards & Chat class on Friday 6th February @ 9.30am, just drop me a line to book your place.
 
 
Thank you for stopping by today!
