Charming Café is sadly leaving

For the first class this month, we will be using the soon to be retiring Charming Café Bundle. I will have the projects from that class to show you next week. In the meantime, I thought I should give you a taste of this elegant bundle.

Card 1:


  • Just for something a little different, I decided to emulate the front of a florist shop using images from Charming Café and At Home With You. Colouring was done with Stampin’ Blends.
  • The sentiment was diecut with one of the Petals & More Thinlits. To give the impressions of layering, I used the Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend to create some colour around the edge.
  • Supplies:
    • Stamp Set: Charming Café, At Home With You
    • Cardstock: Tranquil Tide, Whisper White,
    • Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Memento Tuxedo Black, Stampin’ Blends
    • Accessories: Café Builder Framelits, Petals & More Thinlits, Whisper White Organza Ribbon, Foam Adhesive Strips, Dimensionals.

… the inside

Card 2:


  • A clean and simple look with Watercolor Pencils this time. The floral frame was diecut and added over the scene on the one layer Thick Whisper White card.

… simple inside too

Card 3:


  • The design for this one was CASEd from the Occasions Catalogue.
  • Instead of the usual raised layer on the card front, this one has a shadow box effect which you can see on the photo of the inside of the card.
  • The Petal Garden Memories & More Card Pack provided the leafy borders.
  • Stampin’ Blends were used for the colouring.
