christmas cards using last years papers!

IMG_5505 (Medium)IMG_5506 (Medium)Here are some example of cards that I made with the leftover collectables from assorted kaisercraft collections from last year.I will show a few more tomorrow, and then we will leave christmas until the new collections start coming out although with so much still leftover I really have no excuse to buy them this year! The bauble cards are a favourite of mine. I haven’t spent a lot of time in the craft room this weekend, I have been busy doing some family research and have found it is very addictive! we had another power cut today so all card making plans went out of the window as I like a good light when I am creating.Til tomorrow…..

Christmas cards using last years leftovers…

IMG_5498 (Medium)I gathered all my Kaisercraft christmas papers from christmas’s past.. ( these included Turtle dove,december 25th,Dear Santa, Tis the Season and twig and Berry) and combined them all. Every one who knows me will tell you this was very hard for me as I always keep my collections separate, and never mix and match!I still won’t mix paper companies. It was not too bad, as most of the collections had very similar colours. Anyway,once that was done I went through the paper pads, and fussy cut, and took out border and labels die cuts that I hadn’t used previously and put these in a separate pile. Next I combined all the collectables into one container,and after all that it was very hard to tell the different collections anyway.First I worked on the wider strips that are left behind when I had covered the original cards and the two cards above are the result of that. I added a collectable to both, some words fussy cut from a nother piece of paper, and some craftworks candii in the top corner of the card on the right.More strip makes tomorrow…. Til tomorrow….

Here they are – the very last Kaisercraft Turtle Dove I promise you! These ones have been made using the 12 x 12 papers, and matching collectables, as well as a bit of bling and ribbon.Tomorrow we will move right away from christmas although I am still making christmas cards . I thought i had finished but an order came through for 30 cards so it’s back out with all things red and green, and I might even get to finish off this paper. I promise I won’t post them!Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Tutle Dove 21,22,23,24,25,26!

I have been busy with Kaisercraft Turtle Dove 6″ pad and matching stamps and collectables. six to show today, four tomorrow, then I promise I will stop even though I still have lots of paper left . This collection was worth the money – it’s not often I make so much out of one collection – I usually lose interest or move on, but this paper is so inspiring I could just keep on going, but it’s possible you will all get sick of seeing it! The card on the top left was made using an image from a 12 x 12 sheet,as was the card next to it, all the rest were from my 6″ pad. The stamps that were released with this collection are great, and I have used them on a couple of the cards. Otherwise just added bakers twine, the odd button, liquid pearls, and ribbon to complete these ones. I am in the craft room today revisiting some old collections to make room in my shelves for the new releases that are due out at the end of this week.Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Turtle Dove 13,14,15,and 16

Four cards today, as I want to show these christmas cards while you are all still making them! Kaisercraft Turtle Dove 6″ pad and matching collectables. I have made so many cards out of this collection, and I haven’t even started on the 12 x 12 paper yet – might keep it for next year! Just a bit of clever layering, and some ribbon, lace, bakers twine and craftworks candii is all that was needed to complete these 4. Another 4 tomorrow.. til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Turtle dove 11 and 12

Here are the last 2 in my kaisercraft turtle dove collection for now, tomorrow we will have a little break from christmas, and see what else is in my card files. These two cards use the Kaisercraft Turtle Dove 6″ pad and the matching collectables. I just added a little ribbon. The image on the left hand card was cut from a sheet in the 6″pad, and using the second sheet in the pad I cut the image again and 3d’ed it on top with some foam pads. I think this one is my favourite card from the series. Today is more christmas cards – will I ever be finished? and a class to teach over at the Village so must get my bag ready for that! Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft turtle Dove 9 and 10

Still with our kaisercraft turtle Dove 6″ pad, and matching collectables. The only extra on these 2 cards are some Craftworks candi,bakers twine, tulle,lace and a button. Just a note if you are going to make the one on the right – don’t do as I did – make sure your paper is the right way up! Just noticed that I stuck the paper on upside down !Til tomorrow….

Kaisercraft Turtle Dove 7 and 8

In a couple of days we will have a little break from christmas cards, but i wanted to post a few that I did over the weekend, using kaisercarft Turtle Dove 6″ pad and matching collectables. All I added were the kaisercraft sparklets and a little bit of ribbon. I have had good value with this collection, and still have lots of bits left to continue making! Tonight I am heading into the craft room to make some wedding anniversary cards – Mum was asking for some ideas, so I will sit down tonight and see what I come up with. Til tomorrow…
