Craft and eat cupcakes

Hi everyone, hope you are all fit and well.
Brilliant workshop today with some amazing ladies and a special young girl called Samantha.
Today I taught them how to make  2 simple pop up cards . Make themed and a very girlie cupcake card. 
Here's some fab pictures of the ladies in action 
Now I'm wondering did they enjoy the cupcakes more than the crafting, most of the action shots seem to involve cake. Lol. 
Our next workshop is 17th March 12-3 . Hope to see you all soon and thank you to all those attended. Special thank you to Karen who owns the shop for helping xx

Stamping up meets pergamano

Good evening, 
Hope you are all fit and well. As you all know by now I'm loving parchment craft, but I also love stampin up.
I recently purchased "Beautiful you" from Stampin up and I knew I wanted to mix it up alittle. 
So I stamped the lady with white ink on parchment paper. Groovi plates came out for the background. Coloured with promarkers. 
The grid work is my own design and took me forever lol, but I enjoyed the whole process of this card.
Take are and keep crafting Julie x

Hey chick, I'm free.......

Good evening, 
              Today's weather has been super windy, and has probably done a lot of damage. Some winds in the Sierra Nevada were up to 90mph.
This weather was a great excuse to have a guilt free craft afternoon
I love coloring images and fiddly cutting that's probably why I'm enjoying parchment craft so much. 
The stamp set I've used is called "Hey Chick" from Stamping up which I received free (yes free)  because I spent £45 on other products . I also bought the "Beautiful You" stamp set which I will show you later next week. 
Well here are the cards I made. 
 As you can see the chickens have quite small feet to cut out, if you aren't confident cutting them out  cut them off. Same with the chickens feathers just cut them right off.
Stamp your image onto your card and color the bits you have snipped of , then stamp again and cut out.  Hope this picture makes more sense then me trying to explain it lol 
Then foam pads and decoupage on original image. You can't tell that you may have snipped feet of etc. Hope this helps . Anyway take care and keep crafting. Please leave a comment if you have time . Julie xx
