PS I Love You..

This is the last of my Boxed cards. I made the flower spray, added some black accents to tie in with the sentiment which is a collectable from the PS I love you collection from Kaisercraft.Again this is a card that could be used for wedding,engagement,valentines or anniversary. This weekend has been very busy, with very little time in the craft room, but i will be in there this afternoon as I have a class to set up, I am trying to get ahead with them as the cruise is only 2 and 1/2 weeks away and I won’t be crafting then ( teaching, but no crafting!)til tomorrow….img_0727-medium

Floral sprays and a box..

Another example of my handmade floral spray used on a card.The papers are Kaisercraft PS I love you,and the die is paper rose Ornate circle . I used a collectable doily¬† ( from the paper collection) under the circle. This card could be used for wedding, engagement or anniversary..or even Valentines day!Quick post today as it’s awfully hot sitting here at the computer, I am going to find a nice spot under an airconditioning vent to sit and read a good book! til tomorrow….

Card and matching box..

img_0718-mediumWhile my shoulder was not good ( great day today as my Doctor has cleared me and I am back to normal!)to pass the time I made some flower bunches, and used them on cards only to realise after that they wouldn’t fit into envelopes so I made matching boxes for them.This one has a lovely wide piece of lace on it, the background paper is from kaisercraft PS I love you,and the die is Paper Roses Ornate circle. Just a quick one today, til tomorrow….

PS I LOve You number 4

This is the final card ( for now, until I find where I have put the papers!) of Kaisercraft PS I Love You , I have used the 6″ paper pad and matching collectables on this one. I added a couple of Green Tara flowers and inked around the large collectable with some Tea Dye ink for definition. A ribbon bow to finish. I had a lovely day at the Paper Flourish Teachers car park sale, and sold¬† a lot of bits and pieces that were taking up valuable real estate in my craft wardrobe. I still have a lot of clearing out to do , but I at least I have started! And of course it means more room for new goodies! Til tomorrow….img_0699-medium

Age birthday card..

img_0698-mediumTodays card is the last for now of my age birthday series, and like the previous cards uses Kaisercraft PS I Love you paper for the bottom layer. The die is Paper Rose Ornate Circle,one butterfly is from the collectables pack of the same paper collection, and I made a small spray of flowers with a ribbon bow to finish. These are actually quite quick and easy cards if you take the time to prepare a few sprays while sitting watching TV in the evening, This one in particular was just a case of winding the flower stems around each other, placing them at different heights before winding. Once all joined together you can bend the wires to spread them out or shape them around the circle as I have done here. A leaf, stamens and some silver thread is all added after the spray is stuck on the card front. Another scorcher here today,no good for crafting as the glue drys before I am ready to stick anything to it! Til tomorrow….

70th birthday card..

img_0697-mediumOnce I had made my sisters card I continued on with age birthday cards, this one is a 70th birthday card. Again I used Kaisercraft PS I Love you paper , mounted the happy birthday on a scrap of glitter card, and die cut ( paper rose Ornate circles and leafy flourish) ,added one of my flower sprays, bling and ribbon.Another really warm day here, but I will venture into the (tidy!) craft room to think up some new class cards.Til tomorrow…..

Kaisercraft PS I Love You..

img_0696-mediumA new group today! Kaisercraft PS I Love You.I have only made a few cards with this paper so far ( to be honest I may have misplaced it, but things tend to turn up so I am sure we will see it again eventually)and for the few I made I really only used the papers as backgrounds.These were done while I couldn’t do much crafting because of my shoulder but I have become quite adept at die cutting with my left hand now so there are bits of die cutting on these cards. The dies I used here are Paper Rose brand dies leafy flourish and ornate circle. I made the flower spray, another thing I did while I couldn’t card make – I have quite a few sprays now! I punched the lace doily border added some ribbon and die cut ( kaisercraft)the numbers from glitter cardstock. Til tomorrow….
