Last months village lesson part 2..

IMG_7713 (Medium)IMG_7715 (Medium)As promised, here are the other two cards the ladies made last lesson over at the village.The focus was on die cutting, and the dies we used were Kaisercraft dies.For the top card the daisy die was cut twice – once on green cardstock and once on patterned paper, then we cut the flowers from the patterned paper and stuck them on the green cardstock.A doily die was used for under the flower. I always try and sneak in a male themed card, which is the bottom card.Again kaisercraft dies, and a stampin up boat stamp underneath, die cut in a circle once stamped to sit behind the ship wheel die.A silver brad in the centre of the ship wheel.That’s another month gone, March already and officially the start of autumn – ( here anyway – our northern hemisphere neighbours are welcoming spring) and I am looking forward to cooler weather. It’s been a very long summer this year.Til tomorrow….

  1. Hello Helen……Thank you so much for sharing with us the Cards the Ladies made over at the Village. Both of the ones above are lovely, I especially like the way you stamped the sailing ship and placed it under the ships wheel…really neat! Helen, do the Kaisercraft dies work well in any die cutting machine? I have my eye on buying several of their dies that you have shown us previously and was wondering if there was any problems with them? I have a Cuddlebug Machine. Please take care…..Love, Janice.xx

    1. Hi janice! The kaisercraft dies are my favourite of all dies – they cut beautifully,only needing one pass and back through the machine.In fact, if you pass them through more than that the card or paper becomes very difficult to remove because it sticks right into the die. I was finding with the spellbinders dies that I had to pass them through quite a few times before they cut, and even then the results were a little disappointing. Now I won’t buy any other brand,( of course I make an exception for stampin up which is another favourite)and mine get a good work out because I use them in all my classes!
