Mintay Merry and Bright continued…

This week we are back to Christmas makes with Mintay Merry and Bright paper collection. I really haven’t added very much at all to the papers, some of the sentiments are from Uniquely Creative cut apart sentiment sheet, and the third card has a few Christmas themed flowers. In real time on my craft desk today is a new range from Mintay called Urban Jungle and I am going to start on that. For now though, til next time , stay safe….

A Break from Christmas…

This week I am taking a break from Christmas makes to show a few cards I have made from Mintay Beauty in Bloom. It’s spring here, and this paper collection is all about that. I haven’t added too much more than just the papers with some fussy cut elements, a little ribbon and lace of course! Another quiet week here, doing some sewing, reading, gardening and of course card making! Til next time, stay safe…

The last Once Upon a Christmas cards…

This is the last of my Uniquely Creative Once Upon a Christmas series, mainly because I have the new papers from them to create with, so i have put the rest of this one away and we will see it again next year! I have enjoyed creating with this collection because I have been able to do vintage style and more modern with it, as the=is group shows – the top two vintage style with lots of layers and lace, and the bottom card is much more modern with its pops of black and white. I can’t beleive its October already.. soon time to sit down and write out all those christmas cards.. I think we will be sending many more this year..so many people we haven’t been able to catch up with, and probably not before Christmas either.. a card is a lovely way to stay in contact. Til next time, stay safe …

Mintay Merry and Bright

Three cards today made with Mintay merry and Bright. The first two are very simple , with just fussy cut images from the papers, and the third card is an accordian style card with step down features. I have shown you a few different angles, so that hopefully you see what I mean!lots of images from the papers, and added flowers and a doily on this one!This week I have been busy drawing up patterns – I am going to get the sewing machine out and try my hand at some dolls clothes for my little great niece..I am looking forward to trying something a bit different, but i also have to prepare a lesson for the village ladies, so a crafty week is on the cards! til next time, stay safe….

Uniquely Creative Once Upon a Christmas

This week I have been creating cards with the new Uniquely Creative paper collection which is called Once Upon a Christmas. I have done a different fold for these ones, a sort of accordian fold with step down features. I have included an image at the bottom of the inside of one of the cards to give you a better idea. WordPress has changed the way I can do my blog, please let me know if there are any issues your end, I am having a few this end and I am going to have to pay Nathan in double quantities of chocolate to get him to show me all the ins and outs!Til next time, stay safe…

Bits and pieces on my desk…

_MG_1265 (Medium)_MG_1268 (Medium)A little while ago when I was having a bit of a clean up, a few scraps on my desk ( with a little die cutting) were turned into cards. I quite like these ones, and they may be turned into a village ladies class in the near future, when we are finished our Christmas cards. Speaking of…I received my new Uniquely Creative Once upon a Christmas paper pack this week and am enjoying all the fussycutting!Oh, and you can now follow me in instagram at helengreco30!  Thats been my week, hope you are all staying safe, til next time….

Uniquely Creative Steampunk Safari..part 2..

IMG_2391IMG_2396IMG_2398IMG_2400IMG_2403This week I have continued on with my Uniquely Creative Steampunk safari paper collection, but used the gorgeous floral elements in pretty autumn colours.I made some flowers using book paper and Glassine to add and found some metal butterflies to add as well.I love the numbers die from Uniquely Creative which I die cut in rose gold cardstock. Sequins, and a touch of  liquitex iridescent medium and they were finished. It has been a cold wet week here so lots of crafting has been done, and I have been trying out some new ideas getting the most out of my ink pads. I will be putting those up on my instagram helengreco30 this week. Til next time, stay safe…

Uniquely Creative Steampunk Safari

IMG_2377IMG_2380IMG_2381IMG_2382This week something different for me..The new paper collection from Uniquely Creative is called Steampunk Safari, and although I like the look of steampunk my cardmaking style is really too neat for it but I gave it a go! The clue I think is lots of cogs!The numbers die from Uniquely Creative is also brilliant and I will be using it lots. Next week I will have more cards made from this range to show you but they will be back to my comfort zone! In the meantime, stay safe …til next time…
