What  is better after a busy weekend than to spend an hour crafting with some like minded people? Nothing….well not in my opinion! And the chance to use up some retiring stock (the ‘old’).

This weeks Coffee and a Card brought us a new lady. Her words were  ‘I haven’t got  a crafty bone in my body”, but welcome Sue, and I think you did a fantastic job and look forward to seeing you again!

As the first card had a bit of fussy cutting, this is what we started with.  The patterned  papers were from the  ‘whole lot of lovely’ designer series paper (DSP), and Pear Pizzazz card stock was used for the card base along with Pear Pizzazz Ink for the sentiment and matching Ribbon.  the Whole lot of Lovely papers are beautiful, but are on the discontinued list, so won’t be around after May 31st (or sooner if they sell out before).


Our second card used the 2017/2019 In Color collection.  Card bases were chosen from any of the five colours, and then a flower ( from the Touches of Texture was randomly stamped on a piece of whisper white card stock (6cm x6cm) using all of the In Colors.  The stamped card was then cut into 3cm x 3cm squares and stuck onto the card base using dimensionals., leaving an equal gap between the pieces. Finally a sentiment was stamped under the flowers (I used one from the Cake Soirée stamp set.

I anticipate I will be using an awful lot of ‘old’ to make way for the ‘new’ – all available from June 1st!   And look out for a special early release set at the beginning of May…..details as soon as I have them.
