Coffee Cafe - Thanks A Latte


This month's class focused on the Coffee Cafe stamp set and coordinating Coffee Cups Framelits Dies.

The class included a 1/2 pack of the Coffee Break paper pack, some of which we used on each of the four cards in the Class.


Even though I don't like coffee (apart from the occasional cappuccino), this set really appealed to me as soon as I saw it :o)

The ribbon used is some of our lovely Soft Sky Classic Weave.

Quick Gift Card / Money / Voucher Holder - With Carols Of Christmas


I've been finishing off my Christmas preparations by creating some Gift Card / Money / Voucher Holders.

I make these every year and they are really quick and simple to do. I just change how I decorate them.

This year I used the Carols of Christmas bundle and a sentiment from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set.

To make these you need to start of with a half sheet of card. Score this with the longer side at the top at 3 1/2" and 7". Add glue to the side edges of the smaller section and fold this up to form a pocket to hold the money/voucher .... and you are done. Decorate the front as you wish.


I also added a panel inside so you could write a message.

Sweet Cupcake - Final Class Card


Good Morning! Today's card is the final one we created in my recent Sweet Cupcake class.

I used one of the Stitched Shapes Square framelits to create the White mat in the background. It's fairly simple to create rectangles with these :o)

The three dots after the stamped sentiment were added using the Dapper Denim marker.

The three steps of the cake topper were stamped using 1. Dapper Denim, 2. Dapper Denim stamped 'off' and 3. Soft Sky.

The base uses 1. Soft Suede, 2. Crumb Cake and 3. Sahara Sand - I kept this the same for all the cards.


I used the Marbled background stamp on all the cards for this class. I really like this stamp just inked up using Sahara Sand, but I think it could look really good with a mix of colours too ..... I feel another 'play' coming on soon! :o)

The plain Vanilla toppers were embossed using the Seaside embossing folder.


The complete class :o)
