Here are the last two cards made with Kaisercraft my cherie, for the meantime anyway!These ones are thank you cards – I have made a huge range of cards with different sentiments with this collection, so it’s a great one for all round cards.The top card has a mix of 6′ pad papers and 12 x 12 papers, and the bottom card uses just the 6″ pad.I found some flowers in the bottom of a drawer,wound some silver thread in the back ground and finished off with a big bow and fussy cut butterfly. My roast is in the oven, my shopping list written out for this week, and now I am going to round up Nathan and his camera and take some photos of my latest makes ready to post!I must take this opportunity to welcome all my new followers, thank you for joining us, feel free to comment and join in crafty conversations! Til tomorrow….
A change of pace today with a couple of thinking of you cards made with kaisercraft ma Cherie paper collection. I fussy cut the flower sprays from a sheet of 12 x 12 paper, and the lovely embossed paper on the background id from the 6 ” pad, as is the greeting and butterfly.very similar cards – subtle differences – the background papers are two different papers, and the cardstock used are two different shades of grey. This morning I was digging through my graphic 45 paper looking for special papers to use for a village lesson,and I need a lot of the same paper as my ladies want to learn how to make a bendy card and graphic 45 is the only paper I have in large quantities – mainly because once home with it I find it very difficult to cut into – I love it that much!Going through it all Ideas were springing from everywhere – I will never have enough time to make everything I want to, but at least I have realised the time has come to use this paper!So any spare time this weekend will be spent with Graphic 45!Til tomorrow….
Quick post today as I am back to the work routine! This is the last Kaisercraft My Cherie for now,as I said I have a lot of this paper so it will pop up again…I did a card in a box, fussy cut the butterflies from one of the 12 x 12 sheets, and stuck them on thin strips of acetate.The paper on the actual box is from the 6″ pad. Til tomorrow…..
Two cards today, both with the same decoration, but one done portrait style, and one done landscape style.Background papers are from the Kaisercraft Ma Cherie 6″ pad. The interesting thing about these two cards …On yesterdays card when I die cut the printed sentiment from the 12 x 12 paper I was left with a spotted frame with a hole in the middle, so for todays’ cards I die cut a circle from more patterned paper to fit the hole,rounded the corner with a fancy corner punch from Stampin Up, and used that to create my focal point – I just had to add a fussy cut butterfly ( this collection has a whole sheet of gorgeous butterflies on it to fussy cut!), some liquid pearls on the top card and gorgeous rose trim on the bottom card.After spending my crafting time this week making mens cards I am ready to break out the lace, flowers, ribbons, pearls and create some vintage cards with my new Prima papers – can not wait!! but first Nathan and I have to go and photograph aforementioned mens cards. til tomorrow……
I have some more Kaisercraft Ma Cherie cards to show you. This first one is simply a panel of 12 x 12 paper on top of a card blank ( stampin up cardstock), and I die cut a piece of the card front 12 x 12 papers with a circle die, die cut a scalloped circle ( spellbinders classic scalloped circles) and added flowers, ribbon and a couple of fussy cut betterflies. I knew I had bought this paper, but I searched high and low and couldn’t find it so I bought it all over again, then found the original purchase! I now have lots of this paper,luckily its a beautiful paper range and since making this group of cards I have pulled it out again and it is currently on my desk ready for new ideas this weekend!Til tomorrow….
Kaisercraft my Cherie 12 x 12 papers. This was the final card in the class I taught,so just a couple of the 12 x 12 papers, ribbon and A kaisercraft die – border. I did buy this whole range , and one day i will sit down and use it! until then we will return to christmas cards tomorrow! til tomorrow….
This is the second card we made in last weeks class using My Cherie paper collection from Kaisercraft. All three cards ( third one tomorrow) were made using 3 sheets from the collection and the ladies went home with lots of left over product to make more cards at home! The happy Birthday die is from spellbinders and we added a ribbon bow to this one.Still confined to bed, so today I moved some of my craft room ( or got Nathan to I should say) onto my bed and spent the morning doing some watercolouring. Also doing a bit of reading, but boy, it’s going to be a long week. Til tomorrow….
A break from christmas so that i can show you one of the cards we did last week in my lesson. the paper collection is Kaisercraft My cherie, and we used the 12 x 12 papers. one of the papers has butterfly images all over it – brilliant for fussy cutting! We also used some ribbon, and a kaisercraft lace border die. Well. work lasted 3 hours yesterday before my left knee gave way, and I am now confined to bed waiting for an MRI on saturday. My Dr was great and got me into a specialist straight away, but even the specialist couldn’t pull any strings to get the mri done any faster, so now its a waiting game to have that done and see what he can do to get me back on my feet. meanwhile I am confined to bed rest, reliant on the males of the household for everything and working my way through the pile of unread books by my bed!
