The other three cards I made with Kaisercraft Greenhouse paper collection and matching collectables. I have lots of this paper left, but had to put it away to concentrate on my Cruise cards which are coming along nicely – all the designs are done and it’s just a matter of making up all the packs.Meanwhile back to this weeks cards…I liked this paper collection because it didn’t need anything more added to it, although the first card does have a die cut succulent from Uniquely creative succulent dies set, and the second card has a few silver rhinestones. I have also been making Christmas cards this week with Prima Christmas in the Country paper collection – a gorgeous vintage range! Til next time …..
Kaisercraft greenhouse 1, 2 and 3..
Three cards today, all made with Kaisercraft greenhouse 6″ paper pad and matching collectables. Nothing else was added to these ones except a tiny bit of bling on the top card, and a gorgeous die cut ( made with Uniquely creative Succulents die) on the middle card. Of course I loved all the fussy cutting potential of these papers!. As my thoughts turn to Christmas cards I am getting itchy fingers to dig out all my xmas dies and stamps, but I am still working on my cruise cards. I have about three weeks of prep to do for them and then look out Christmas here I come!!Til next time…..
Todays cards were ones I came up with for a class, using kaisercraft Scrapyard papers. They were all made using circle nesting dies to cut the shapes. They are self explanatory, and I didn’t add anything to them except for some rhinestones and greetings, everything was fussy cut from the papers. Today is set up day for the weekend craft fair, I am so looking forward to catching up with everyone who stops by! It is very cold here in Adelaide just now so I may have to take a knee rug with me..it’s always cold in the basketball courts! Til next time….
Special Age birthday cards
This week I took a break from all things tidying, and preparing for the craft fair to sit down and create. I had the perfect papers ( a small 6″ paper pad from kaisercraft called With Love) and some new numbers dies from Uniquely Creative to make some very special birthday cards. I took this photo, couldn’t wait for Nathan to snap these as I want to take them to the fair with me. Just going back to the paper pad – it’s an unusual one for Kaisercraft as a lot of the papers are foiled and as you can see I didn’t add too much more to the cards..a little lace, ribbon and my numbers all die cut with either foil or glitter card. Til Next time…..
Kaisercraft Full Bloom lesson cards..
On todays post are three cards I made for a lesson I taught at paper Flourish.We did lots of fussy cutting( of course!), a little bit of layering and added some rhinestones for a bit of bling. I haven’t done much crafting for myself since I got back from my cruise, I have been busily creating card classes for the next couple of months. I am nearly caught up and looking forward to using some of the new supplies I have been collecting. til tomorrow….
Kaisercraft Full Bloom..
Today I am posting three cards I made for a class using Kaisercraft Full Bloom paper collection. All three cards rely only on the papers, and if memory serves it was only three different papers from the collection. I have the whole range here at home but as yet ( because of Christmas makes) have not done anything with it yet but look forward to in the new year as it is a beautiful range and I have lots of ideas! There is so much happening here just now, working, getting organised for Christmas, putting final touches on my cruise lessons, and trying to get ahead of my lessons , my personal crafting has taken a back seat, but things will get back to normal after February! Til tomorow…..
Kaisercraft Christmas Wishes 13, 14, and 15….
Today we are back to Kaisercraft Christmas Wishes paper collection. The top card has some matching collectables, and the lower 2 cards just rely on the papers within the collection. The bottom card has a Seven Paper Dolls resin frame which I painted with Prima Alchemy paints.Today is a working day at home while I plan out my december lessons, so I must get started! Til tomorrow…..
Kaisercraft Christmas Wishes 10,11,12..
I can’t say it often enough..this collection of papers and collectables ( kaisercraft Christmas Wishes) is so easy to use, and only requires a ribbon bow or a bit of glitter to finish the cards, as you can see in these most recent cards. The top card is particularly interesting. The background layer was a sheet from the 6′ pad which I ran over with a distress ink pad, then wiped off, and the words appeared as if by magic!! It has a gloss finish. I think all the embellishments on these three cards are from the collectables pack, so no fussy cutting to do, and all background papers were from the 6″ pad. Day off today, I have intentions of practising my freehand watercolouring after I have done some paperwork…til tomorrow….
Kaisercraft Christmas Wishes 7, 8, and 9
Continuing on with Kaisercraft Christmas Wishes, I used some of the matching collectables on the top card, and a few fussy cut elements on the lower two cards. On the top card I have used some Nuvo drops, and of course there has to be a card with a ribbon bow amongst the group somewhere! Today is the start of daylight savings here, the clocks have gone forward, I have lost an hour and I am running behind in everything! Til tomorrow…..
Kaisercraft Christmas Wishes 4,5 and 6…
Kaisercraft Christmas Wishes collection pack, collectables and 6″ pad…Not much else required..a bit of bling, a ribbon bow ….thats it! The bottom card has a sentiment which is a Couture Creations hot Foil stamp which I did on my Go press and Foil machine and then die cut with a Seven paper Dolls die. When i have my Hot foil machine out I tend to do a few at once so that I have a bit of a collection to choose from on my desk. I have to say I do love my foil machine! I have been spreading the word about it , running regular classes at paper Flourish showing all the different things you can do with it, and some of the ladies have given me more ideas and uses too which I am looking forward to investigating. In the meantime, today is my craft and chat gathering and looking forward to catching up with my crafty friends for a relaxing afternoon. We may even get some crafting done! Til tomorrow….
