Graphic 45 Birdsong number 5

IMG_3666 (Medium)I have classed this card as a graphic 45 card, as the images that I fussy cut were from graphic 45 Birdsong papers, but the background paper that I used is actually a piece from my Bo Bunny Serenity 6″ pad.These two paper collections compliment each other perfectly. It’s very rare that I cross over like this – in fact I don’t think I have ever done it before. The only other thing on this card is some Cherry Blossom that I die cut using Spellbinders Cherry Blossom die. I hope all my Adelaide friends are surviving this terrible heat – I taught a class this afternoon over at the retirement village ( I will show the cards we made tomorrow) , and it was so very hot out there!I have had Nathan look at my blog to fix the leave a comment problem – and hopefully its fixed now – Above the photo is a speech bubble next to Leave a Comment.

Graphic 45 Birdsong number 4

IMG_3665 (Medium)Still on Graphic 45 Birdsong paper series, and for this one I used one piece of paper to cover the card front, and I distressed and inked the second piece. I fussy cut elements from further matching pieces of paper,and made  a paper rose, and added a brass leaf from Tim Holtz collection to finish.I had a lovely morning with a group of ladies in my card class, and i am on holidays now for 2 weeks, so looking forward to the break and lots of crafting!It has also been brought to my attention that many of you are having trouble commenting on my blog, so hopefully this weekend Nathan will have time to have a look for the problem – I will let you all know when the problem has been rectified, meanwhile if there is anything you wish to contact me about, you can e- mail me at    Til tomorrow….

Graphic 45 Birdsong number 3

IMG_3664 (Medium)Here is number 3 using graphic 45 Birdsong patterned papers. I have rounded all my corners, and matted the main image onto early espresso cardstock ( stampin Up ) I used my Cherry Blossom spellbinders die, and added some seam binding and a vintage charm. I picked up the charm at a market with some other old broken bits of jewellry. I always keep my eyes open for finds like this , they usually cost next to nothing, and are agreat way to add interest and texture to my cards. Til tomorrow….

Graphic 45 Birdsong number 2

IMG_3662 (Medium)Today I have revisited Graphic 45 Birdsong patterned paper,which I haven’t had enough time to play with but hopefully while I am on holidays next week I will be able to spend some more time with it! for this Mothers day card I matted everything with Stampin Up early Espresso cardstock, and used my new spellbinders die – Cherry blossom in the top corner. Just an organza bow and a little kindyglitz, and a simple card! Til tomorrow….

Graphic 45 Bird Song card

Here is my first ( and only at the moment as I have been distracted with xmas cards) Graphic 45 Bird Song card. Lovely paper and I am looking forward to doing more with it, in the meantime, I did a lot of fussy cutting for this one, and mounted the images on to stampin Up cardstock – Earl Espresso and Baja Breeze. I added some seam binding and gold liquid pearls for texture.Today is a beautiful day outside, and it’s a shame to waste it, so perhaps no creating but sitting in the garden with a good book! Til tomorrow….
