It was a day full of amazing online fun with some awesome projects.
They have hosted two online retreats so far and I have attended both and had loads of fun.
They have another planned so be sure to go and check out the website and the Facebook page to stay up to date – because you won’t want to miss out!
You can actually still purchase the recordings and PDF’s if you check out the website link above.
This amazing joint class was run by the lovely husband/wife duo Kylie & Bruno Bertucci!
It was amazing! I love how they both did the same project with a different spin on it!
Bruno’s card is larger than Kylie’s, with Kylie’s being a standard card size and Bruno’s being quite large (you would need to create a handmade envelope for this one)
I had fun using the Tea Boutique and Texture Chic suites for these cards…
Here is a look at my finished card for Bruno’s project.
I loved the bold and bright colours that he used with the Tea Boutique suite and WOW – I think I lost count of how many tea cups I stamped and die cut. The Cup of Tea bundle is amazing.
Here is a close up of the finished card.
I have embellished the little tea cup on the bottom right with some extra die cuts and stamped pieces and some of the 2022-2024 In Colour Matte Decorate Dots as well as some of the Essentials Baker’s Twine in white.
This is where the magic happens!
The card folds out to this! HOW COOL IS THIS?
It is a great way to use Designer Series Paper and really make it shine!
I embellished the middle with more stacks of tea cups and added a little sentiment strip in the middle as per Bruno’s original design.
We added a panel on the back for some handwriting/message and I added some decorations on the bottom right.
I had so much fun making this project!
Here is a look at the card that I made for Kylie’s vision of the book flip card.
This one is so elegant with the Texture Chic Specialty Designer Series Paper. This Designer Series Paper is gorgeous with all the foiling. I couldn’t decide which patterns to use!
Here is a close up of some of the detail on the front of the card.
It is embellished with a large die cut piece from the Artistry Dies which is die cut using the Distressed Gold Paper (this is from the Texture Chic suite as well and is gorgeous!)
I embellished my card with a simple bow from the Simply Elegant trim and some of the Festive Pearls and Trinkets Adhesive Backed Flowers.
And once again – the inside where the magic occurs!
How much fun!
I used some more die cuts – this time from the Chic Dies and the sentiment from the Charming Sentiments Bundle.
Instead of a panel on the back of the card, this one actually had a fold out card adhered to the back panel – so many hidden surprises on this card!
I have embellished this one with a die cut from the Artistry dies with the Distressed Gold Paper to replicate the design on the front.
I loved creating both the cards in this class, what a fun design that could be used for so many things.
Don’t forget to check out the Online Retreat page. There will be another retreat coming again early next year and you can still purchase the recording for this one.
Until next time,
Happy crafting. xx
