More summer crafting

I had a lovely afternoon yesterday,  hosting a workshop for a few of my female relatives.   They were all new to stamping, but they all did really well and made some beautiful cards and a little purse each.
It did get a bit messy and next time I will definitely pack some wet wipes!
Here's another of the projects we made - it uses the imminently retiring stamp set "up, up & away".  Also leaving us are the pool party dsp & lucky limeade ink.
Island indigo, pool party & new smoky slate inks & whisper white cardstock are here for the year as is the cloudy embossing folder & modern label punch.  Phew!

Summer craft projects

Just back from a lovely holiday with the family, took my Stampin' Up! catalogues and sat in the sunshine.  I am hosting a class at the weekend so I am spending this week designing projects and preparing supplies.

The first card that we will be creating uses the gorgeous (soon to be retired) summer smooches designer series paper.  It is so pretty and needed very little embellishment.  I used some old olive, real red and whisper white cardstock.  Ink in real red.  The butterfly stamp is from the papillon potpourri set.

I finished it off with a few spots of dazzling details and a couple of rhinestones.

I think it looks fab and I hope my class enjoy making it!
