    Stamping with aMac July 2021 Craft Retreat

    Apologies for the lateness of this Craft Retreat post – my website has been down for a bit over a week but is back on deck now.

    What a wonderful weekend getaway we had. We were so very fortunate to enjoy it given the current COVID-19 circumstances.

    I arrived early to set up the room with the help of Theresa, Donna and Jan 😘

    At this retreat, we were fundraising for Bornhoffen PCYC to buy flyscreens for the windows of the hall.

    This will benefit us greatly in the warmer months when moths and mosquitos are plentiful.

    We had some wonderful displays…

    We also celebrated Toni’s birthday with a lovely fresh cake!

    Here’s our wonderful groups of crafters who had a great time with good fun being had by all!

    Here’s just some of the MANY projects that were created over the weekend. Some ladies were very productive!

    A huge THANKYOU to all you who came and extra thanks to all those who helped out in various ways. I really appreciate you. 😘

    Looking forward to our next retreat 12-15 November. Let me know if you want to join us!

    Happy Stamping,

    Angela 😊x

    Card Class May 2021 – Butterfly Brilliance

    I’m excited to share that I designed all of the cards for this class that we had last month. We used the Butterfly Brillance bundle and the Very Versailles stamp set.

    Vintage Card

    I used Pool Party and Crumb Cake on this card. I love the two colours together.

    Combining the Crumb Cake colour, sponging and distressing makes it easy to create a vintage look. I used the Very Versailles stamp for the subtle background as well as a butterfly.

    The die cut butterflies were also sponged to age them and the card was finished off with a few pearls on the greeting and some linen thread.

    Elegant Card

    I love the combination of Blushing Bride with Night Of Navy! Don’t you think it goes so well together?

    I used a few layers to give a bit of depth to this simple card. The card base is Basic White, the second layer is Night of Navy and the background white layer was stamped in Blushing Bride.

    I used an ‘E’ size Stampin’ Up! Acrylic block for the subtle rectangle background then stamped the beautiful foliage from the Very Versailles stamp set.

    The butterfly was die cut using the Brilliant Wings Dies and embellished with gold thread and gold faceted gems.

    The greeting was stamped using the Art Gallery stamp and it fit perfectly into the Treasured Tags Pick a punch.

    Fancy Fold Card

    This is a super simple but amazingly effective fancy fold card.

    I used Mint Macaron as the base and stamped the Butterfly Brilliance stamp on the front. The inside strip was decorated with the limited-edition Butterfly Bijou DSP which sold out super quickly!

    The centre flap has the Very Versailles background under the Brilliant Wings Die cut butterfly which is finished off with some Basic Pearls.

    Splash of Colour Card

    I used Magenta Madness as the bold base card and stamped in in matching ink once again using the Very Versailles stamp for the background. We added a strip embossed with the Painted Texture 3D folder.

    The different colours on the butterflies were created by sponging different sections in different colours and stamping on the Basic White using the Stamparatus. We then die cut the images and used dimensionals to pop them up.

    The biggest butterfly has a small die cut for extra texture and it’s finished off with Wink Of Stella for some subtle sparkle.

    If you would like to join us for classes, we’ll be using the Artistically Inked Suite in July.
