A Morning of Crafting with Loobi

Hello Folks,

Today I am sharing the cards we made at our monthly craft class at Loobi Crafts, Craft Studio.

As usual it was a fun morning with Lisa teaching and the rest of the group enjoying a good natter while playing with new products.

Now, I must admit to being first and foremost a stamper, so card kits and toppers aren't usually very high up on my list of 'things to buy' but I did enjoy making these cards.  Yes, and maybe - just maybe, I bought a couple of packs to take home!

The first picture doesn't show clearly how this card is constructed. We cut out a centre panel horizontally from the front of the card and discarded that part for a future project.  The remaining top section and the loose bottom strip of card were covered with backing paper and then fixed in place by carefully aligning the topper to form a bridge between the two pieces of card.  

The flower to the right of the topper is actually on the inside of the card and there is also a sentiment stamped inside the card, behind the front panel but stupid here forgot to take a photo of it!

The second card is made with strips of patterned paper adhered to a Kraft card base and the topper decoupaged and layered on top.  A stamped sentiment has been added to finish.

And for our final card of the morning we did a bit of stamping and colouring on white card.  With the addition of some brown cardstock we mat and layered over four patterned paper panels.  The cute little fox stamp is from Stampendous.

That's it from me today,
Thank you for visiting.

Bye for now


  1. Hi Anne, I did this class at Loobi last Friday and also liked the images very much. I also went home with a couple of packets and a paper pad too. What a shame we didn't go to the same class. Barbxx

  2. A fabulous collection of cards Anne, lovely colours - I think the first one is my favourite.

  3. THese are sweet card. I think they call that top one a floating panel design. I've been meaning to try it. Great patterns and designs on all your cards. I'm with you, I'm more a stamper and always feel like I'm "cheating" when I use card toppers and kits, but I sure am drawn to them! (and love to purchase them)

  4. Just luffly Anne, love the unusual layout of the first and the Japanese dolls are lovely, Foxy Loxy by Stampendous is beautifully coloured too.
    Thanks for sharing your inspiration!
