Banoffee Cupcakes

I had a little baking session yesterday, I love watching the Great British Bake Off but it always makes me hungry!

So in preparation  I rustled up some Banoffee Cupcakes,  yummy! Unsurprisingly there are not many left now.

Christmas in September

I've taken inspiration from the new Autumn/Winter book for the projects for the next class and we'll using the new Festival of Trees polymer stamp set and matching punch.

We'll be making 4 cards & a tag which should give you a head start with the mass of cards needed at Christmas!

Classes are Saturday 13th September or Sunday 14th September from 1pm to 4pm in the heart of Leicestershire.

Contact me for more info and to book your place.

Best of Flowers class

Hurrah the lovely weather is back!

I'm off to my class in a mo but realised I'd forgotten to share the projects.

We'll be using the fab new Best of Flowers set which is the first in a line of Best of sets that Stampin' Up! are releasing to celebrate 25 years of SU! Each month they'll release a new one which features some favourite retired stamps & some new ones too.

They are only available in clear mount but are priced at only £13.95 so a bargain.

Anyway here's my projects using Crumb Cake, Pretty in Pink (some to be retired), Very Vanilla and a hint of Wild Wasabi.

I've used a misting technique on the gift wallet which I learnt at the recent SU training in Telford from a fab demonstration by another demonstrator.  Check out a video of the day here.

Thank you cards

Just a quick post to show the thank you cards I have put with my orders this month.

I case'd this from Stamping With Dawn, it's a really cute idea for something different.

The card stock is Natural White which I've only just discovered! And the papers are the retired pack Festival of Prints in the Winter mini.

The stamp set is Betsy's Blossoms which I've not used for a while, in Gumball Green ink.

Quick card change

Last minute cards are always a pain aren't they, I had forgotten about a friends son's birthday & hadn't got a card ready no didn't have a lot of time so decided to change a card I already had.

The original card was a quite a girly card but I knew I could change that easily. I stamped the cute balloon and bunting from the Collage Curios set in Wisteria Wonder then punched out with a circle punch & layered them over the original design. I then cut strips of Wisteria Wonder card stock to cover the original border which was a bit girly too. I'm happy with the result & you'd never know that it started out as a girls card. Simples :)

Simple but effective card

That's a ominous blog title! I case'd this card from a US Stampin' Up! publication. I love how simple but effective it is (hence the title!)

Colours are Basic Grey & Bashful Blue which compliment each other really well. The stamp set used is the Itty Bitty Banner set which I lined up using my trusty Stamp a ma jig.

The small punch out is from the Itty Bitty punch pack, it was fiddly but not too difficult to line them up.

Beyond Plaid

After a fab class yesterday I've managed to have a crafty play today too.

I bought the Beyond Plaid set from the Spring mini as I loved the patterns straight away. Though I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it!

I stamped the image in Wild Wasabi, Chocolate Chip & Bashful Blue then punched out with the 1 1/4"  punch to create the background. I used the Oval framelits to create the topper with the cute Itty Bitty butterfly punch & the left over bits of the stamping.

I'm really happy with how it's turned out & I can't wait to use the other patterns in the set.
