Watercolour Wings for Crafternoon Tea (Part 2)

Hello again and welcome back to another post with the Watercolour Wings stamp set and the Baby Wipe Technique. A very simple make with the stamped butterfly and the detailed die cut laid over the top with some added rhinestones.
I often never use all my sequins so I am determined to get them on more of my projects and this one was perfect for adding some of the Bermuda Bay sequins which we pulled off the thread and added individually. Little tip for this, add a tiny blob of glue to the card and then take the sequin to the card!
The sentiment is from the Fresh Fruit stamp set, a very useful little Happy Birthday stamp.
Please remember to redeem your coupons if you ordered in July and earned some money off vouchers.

Watercolour Wings for Crafternoon Tea (Part 1)

Hello there and welcome back to my blog today. Yesterday I ran my first ever Sunday class and had 5 lovely ladies join me for my Thoughtful Branches class with a little cream tea afterwards.

Talking of cream teas, today I am starting the sharing of the projects from my most recent Crafternoon Tea. I have a set of butterfly projects on display at my studio that probably get the most comments from my guests, there is a link to them HERE and I promised some of my ladies that I would do some butterfly makes with the same technique on a similar theme. Two of the colours had retired since I made the previous projects so I kept the Bermuda Bay and added some Pear Pizazz and Watermelon Wonder to create a summery feel.
I had 14 ladies attend this event so I did precut the white detailed butterflies for each guest to help with the running of the class.
We also stamped the butterflies on the envelopes using the same baby wipe technique.
I'll be back soon with the next creation in the set that we made.

Have a great Monday!

Wedding Card

Good Morning lovely readers and welcome to my blog today. Today I am sharing something a little different with you, a wedding card that I made back in July for some friends who I know through the theatre company. I attended the evening reception and had a fantastic night and gifted the couple some Project Life goodies so Sarah and Jamie could continue to work on their wedding album which Sarah started at a little private soiree I hosted at the studio a few weeks ago.
I wanted to utilise some gold on my card so I opted for the Delightful Dijon ribbon which is quite gold like and ties a lovely bow. 
I also used my new Large Letter framelits and stamps and embossed them with our lovely Gold Emboss powder after stamping in Versamark.
Inside got a little extra treatment too with a bit of baby swiping and the heart from the Blooming' Love stamp set.
Hope you liked today's make! See you tomorrow!
